  • It was an early morning this morning-well, not really. We jumped out of bed at 7:50 and scrambled around here to leave at 8:30. We did manage to cook a pan of cinnamon rolls, empty the dishwasher and fold a load of clothes before we left.
  • Keaton had her basketball game first this morning. Campbell kept score and thought that Keaton's team lost by 2 while on the other side of the court, we kept score and thought that her team won by 2. Who knows! It was a good game, and Keaton is a great gaurder. Though quite often, I find myself shouting, "take the ball out of her hands;" my Keaton needs to be a bit less timid.
  • Keaton and Campbell went home with Nonna and Pops. Reagan and Whitman were still at home since they set Keaton's game out. So the big boys and us ran to McDonalds for a little breakfast. Then we went to Kroger to see if they had any more Lego sets on sale like last night.
  • Last night we didn't do a good job looking at all of the sets but did grab Anderson one. Today, our plan was to study them and possibly let Anderson buy another or even buy one to sell. However, there were none left at all. That was fine with Anderson though because after spending the night at Grannymom's house, he was anxious to get home and see his new set that we (actually, he) bought last night.
  • During our basketball break, we cleaned the fridge, plugged it back in and loaded a bit of it up again. Then there were the blasted 4 miles on the treadmill followed by quick hair cuts for some. I ran to pick up Campbell and take her to her game early so she could take team pictures.
  • Campbell's game was good. They really hustled. At one point, the other team was trying to shoot in the wrong goal. Campbell's coach was shouting at them that they were going the other way while Campbell was shouting at him to not say anything. She planned on winning that game one way or another!
  • We then had a few minutes to run and get gas and another Kroger run for me during our next basketball break. Then it was the boys' turn to play ball. They tied their game and then it went to overtime. My Graham really stepped up the intensity of his playing today, and Anderson is pretty consistent-a fierce ball grabber. 
  • The only thing about this down to the wire and overtime game was that it lasted forever. The game went about 15 minutes over the normal time so we had to hurry home to watch the last basketball game of the day-the Hogs. 
  • I will say that I didn't see much of that game. I did cuddle up on the chair and slept even though the exciting end of the game. The kids cycled through the showers while Robby and I worked on supper. While we were doing that, we did manage to hang up my new laundry sign from my birthday.
  • We all ate, and then I settled into the school room pulling out school when the Wilsons wrote. We headed over there for the evening. Reagan debated going, but did ask two important questions before she decided-Will there be food? and Can I drive?
  • The answer to both of those were yes. Shannon had cookies and Reagan did drive us over there. Anderson stayed back working on his new Lego set while Whitman stayed home and pretty much covered all of the living room floor.
