  • As soon as I rolled out of bed this morning, I started folding laundry while listening to Robby make breakfast. Once everyone was ready, we ate our breakfast-biscuits, gravy and sausage. This was the first officially chilly Sunday morning so finding shoes and pants was a bit difficult. Whitman's pants looked huge on him, but I rolled them up, and they became at least decent.
  • Church was a bit different this morning and due to the Barnabas project, so was Sunday school. The kids that were there were able to make little goodie bags for all of the teachers which was neat for them to be able to do.
  • After Sunday school, we loaded up to meet some other folk at Otter Creek Elementary to spend the afternoon working there. We started off with lunch-chips and cookies were good, but the sandwiches weren't too impressive to me. 
  • Then we started off to work-one group repainted a basketball court's lines. My girls helped with painting a four square and hopscoth. Anderson and Graham helped there, but also helped the rest of us in the flower beds. Whitman spent some time on the playground, but he worked super hard and for a long time scooping mulch into wheelbarrows. 
  • We worked until nearly 4. I did take the boys at one point for a Sonic run. I do think that they enjoyed picking up 26 drinks. It was a super fun afternoon, and a bit tiring, but we enjoyed seeing the kids work hard.
  • Once at home, I pulled out school for the next week and then joined Robby in the living room for a little nap. We then sat around trying to figure out what to have for supper when the Wilson's wrote. We grabbed some spaghetti sauce, noodles and frozen meat along with our leftover bake sale desserts from yesterday and headed to their house.
  • We had a great evening chatting with the Wilsons and stuffing our faces with our buffet dinner-our thrown together meal plus their thrown together meal. We stayed out too late for a Sunday night since everyone had to have showers when we came home.
