  • I was sleeping well this morning when Robby left for Conway. It isn't often that he is out of bed before I am since it seems like all I am doing these days is hauling people to swim team or camps early in the morning. I should have taken better advantage of my sleeping in day today.
  • I worked on making Campbell's cake for her half birthday on Saturday. I think that she will want to decorate it herself so I am saving that part for her. Though that will probably happen the day of her party which is the same day Anderson and Graham will need to be packing for their trip. 
  • There are just two more weeks of summer happening at this house-I'll tell you the run down starting with tomorrow: pick Campbell up from camp, pack boys and Campbell's party, Sunday, 4 days of mission trip for Anderson and Graham while Keaton and Whitman go to Family Farm, 3 days in Branson, Campbell and Graham at camp for 4 days, 1 free day, swim team meet, Sunday, Graham's birthday and school starts. I will need a vacation after this summer is over.
  • We left for the pool around noon. Keaton was so excited because we were bringing Sophia home with us after the pool. The kids swam pretty hard and no one seemed to complain when we left after just 2 hours.
  • On the way home, we stopped at Grannymom's house to pick up Graham. He had spent the night at Grannymom's house. He helped them work in the yard some and even earned himself some spending money. On the way home, we stopped at Sonic to get a drink which made everyone happy.
  • I did some treadmilling this afternoon and worked on getting a bit more of school ready since that is happening soon. When Robby came home this evening, he worked for a little bit before we all loaded up for the pool. 
  • We first all got gas for our cars before Robby ran to get pizza for the evening. The big boys and Robby left after an hour while the girls and Whitman stayed a bit longer with me. Whitman spent the last little half in the deep end today. This morning he swam really well, but tonight he wasn't in any rush to get to the sides and preferred to just bob up and down. He thinks this is loads of fun while I think that it is a just a terrifying. 
  • Once we came home, the girls went to town on completing everything on Keaton's sleep over to do list.  There was dancing, popcorn, gymnastics, nail panting-I feel like I have had a friend over and am exhausted!
