  • I shoudl have woken up a bit earlier this morning as always. However, I didn't want to wake p so early that I felt like I should walk on the treadmill. I immediately went to wake up everyone-Campbell and Anderson were the only ones awake. Whitman and Graham were curled up in Graham's bed while Keaton was sleeping up against her wall, and Reagan was sound asleep in her bed. 
  • It didn't take too long for us all to start stirring. I knew that we had to move quickly this morning so we started reading as soon as the last breakfast was made. I read for our hour, shouted out some instructions to everyone and hopped in the car with Reagan.
  • She had an orthodontist appointment today, and it seemed to take forever. She really didn't want to get a permanent retainer. However, they went on and on telling the benefits of them. They also said that we could get one next time. I was almost convinced to wait, talk it up to Reagan and then get one next time. I asked Reagan what she thought and she shrugged her shoulders and said, it's fine. So a permanent bottom retainer she received today.
  • When we were finished, we climbed in the car and she immediately suggested that we get a drink. She asked for Starbucks so I said sure. Today she had a moccha cookie frappe today, and I thought it was pretty yummy. I even said that I might get me one some day.
  • After we bought her drink, we headed home to finish school. Reagan went right to work and finished before I did. I guess that I had a lot more school to do than she did. I was quite surpried that things went fairly well once I got home. I worked through lunch as the kids grabbed their lunches and by two everything was done. 
  • The afternoon was flying by when I stopped to help with Robby's new grill. We tried it out tonight and everyone wasa pretty excited about it. We just had chicken breasts, and though we over seasoned them, they were pretty yummy. 
  • We ate our supper a bit early - around 4:45. It seems early but at 5, we had to leave for church. Graham has to be there early so we had some downtime before we started. The kids were happy that I let them stay late and play outside before heading home. However, when it was time to leave, Graham couldn't find his Bible. The kids all got out and looked for it, but alas it wasn't to be found. I am sure that it will turn up. 
  • When we made it home, Robby had ice cream waiting for us. The kids had their ice cream fill while we all stayed up a bit late tonight. Keaton tried to convince us to stay up all night to celebrate Reagan's birthday. We told her that it was a good idea, but told her no way!
