September 12, 2019-Happy 14th Birthday Reagan!

(click here for today's pictures)

  • Reagan took me up on the offer for no school this morning, so the main activity happening in my kitchen this morning was 5 sweet brothers and sisters working on breakfast for their big sister. Well, Anderson wasn't too into helping and actually only made the picture because he was in the right place at the right time.
  • I was suprised that Reagan was actually awake this morning. She said that she was hungry so fairly early, she came down for her breakfast. When she did, the kids all jumped out and shouted. "Happy Birthday."
  • Since we were not doing school, it made the morning super nice! I enjoyed the school break just as much as the kids-except I did manage to do some school. I worked with half of everyone today on their tomorrow's work together work. This should make my day a bit easier tomorrow. I could possibly be convinced to skip a day of school every day of the week-except that would mean we would need to school all year long.
  • Campbell, Keaton and I went to Walmatr and Kroger this morning. They were my bargain finders. Keaton found cheap school boxes while Campbell found a pretty cheap plate. I didn't need either but we bought them!
  • Once we were back at home, everyone had to help with the groceries. Then I worked on my garage sale stuff as the kids played Nerf guns. This was pretty much what they did most of the day-nerf guns or ipads. There are Nerf bullets all over this house!
  • I left this afternoon to go and do my volunteering at the pregnancy center. It was super busy there today. I put zillions of diapers in baggies and even learned a bit on the computer. I loved it! Next time, I will take one of the kids to go with me.
  • I hurried home so I could take Reagan to practice, but Robby decided that he wanted to escape so he took her instead. She received her uniform and was proud to show me how sweaty her shirt was. 
  • On the way home, they stopped by ChickFilA for Reagan a birthday supper and even ran to Walmart. Meanwhile, I walked on the treadmill, baked Reagan's birthday cake for Saturday, made supper and helped the girls make Reagan cookie dough for a present. 
  • Campbell, Keaton and Whitman even spent a bit of time outside with the neighbors before coming in to eat supper. Once Reagan came home, she finished her supper and then we had strawberry shortcake for one last birthday celebration-one last celebration today. There are more coming!
