  • Another Sunday of singing in big church for Campbell, Keaton and Whitman. This time they sang upstairs. I made it up there just in time to see them walking in. There were a lot fewer kids than last week, but they still all did great.
  • Campbell rocked her solo today. You could hear her super well, and she seemed very confident. Whitman did wave at me during the first song, but he stood still and sang his heart out. Keaton, of course, was as cute as she could be singing away.
  • We didn't have to teach Sunday school and that along with pastries did make for a good morning, despite having to go to a meeting during that Sunday school hour. We had fun though, and a break was nice.
  • After church, we headed to Grannymom's house for Sunday lunch. It had been a few weeks since we had eaten together. It was nice to be back in a normal routine. 
  • Then we ran to Walmart for what we thought would be the last time before our trip. It wasn't the last time since I already have a list again! The next stop was Nonna and Pops' house. It was time to celebrate his birthday just a few days late.
  • He had actually bought his own birthday cake, and seriously, it was better than anything that I could have made. The kids really enjoyed it. It was super rich and after eating some cake a few cookies that he also bought, we were almost in a sugar coma.
  • This afternoon there was more packing, hair cutting, and even a bit of sewing. Reagan has wanted the sleeves of her shirts rolled up, so I have had to tack them all up. That is just about the extent of my sewing skills.
  • Soon most of us loaded up, to head to life groups. Robby took the big kids-Anderson, Reagan and their other Lawson Road buddies to their life group. First he dropped me off at our group. In between drop off and pick up for the others, Robby came back to the adult meeting.
  • We had supper and dessert there, and when it was over we hurried home to get back to the littles. Most of the evening was spent in the kitchen-rice krispy treats-and picking up the house-my girls have forgotten how to pick up anything at all!
