  • We woke up this morning to do our last little bit of reading. We just don't have that much left to do in our work together box, and it is a wonderful feeling. Though I am still going to try to read at least one book to everyone this summer. 
  • After we had our breakfast and finished reading, the kids started on their chores and I worked on folding a waist high mound of laundry. I am not sure how I was able to do it all before the kids were able to help. I had bunko tonight so the kids pretty much did all of the weekly chores today. 
  • At 10, we loaded up to head to Raymar for our little homeschool field day. I think that the kids had fun. We started off with a 3 on 3 soccer tournament. There was a ping pong ball relay race, games for the little kids along with a kickball game. 
  • It was hot out there, and there was a bit of grumbling and complaining from the kids...and adults. But the biggest hit was Ms. Traci's snow cone maker. The kids loved having the them-they went through all of the paper cups that Traci had and we had to start using my paper plates to make cones.
  • Robby brought our crew pizza for lunch. We ate all but two slices of pizza, and a good while after lunch I looked up to see Whitman sitting at the table all alone eating the rest of the pizza. The boy was hungry. 
  • When we came home, everyone helped unload the car. Then the girls headed out to play. The boys eventually joined them for a little bit. At 6, they all headed to Third Realm for a bit of jumping. 
  • There were only 2 other kids there plus some new workers who were running a tight ship. That was fine though because the kids still had fun. Then they ended their evening with supper at Shorty Smalls. It has been years since Robby and I have been there. 
  • I didn't have a big crowd at Bunko tonight, but we had plenty of food-chicken salad croissants, roasted carrots and green beans, salad and a S'mores trifle. I made the desserts this afternoon and even made 6 extras for the kids. So there will be lots of S'mores trifles for us to finish off over the next few days.
