  • No one was too quick to get up this morning for swim team. It really is a good thing that we are all able to get out of bed and leave the house in 20 minutes. The kids only have two more days of swim left so they don't want to miss any.
  • While they were swimming, I tried to return somethings to Walmart-they aren't letting you return clothes, but I thought you could return them online, but they tell you to take them to the store-ugh! I ended up having to buy Anderson 3 pairs of shorts before I found the size that fit him. It wouldn't have helped if he had been with me since you can't try clothes on-stupid rona!
  • I picked them up, and we headed home for some baking. Keaton made muffins-well, she made muffin mix and put them in mini bundt pans. They were cute and all, but this was a lot of work. She helped until the kitchen was clean though.
  • While she was working, Graham also made apple crisp for me. We started out making 2, but I decided to make 3, but had enough stuff to make 4, and probably could have made 5 if I had not run out of apples. That means that I still have some "crisp" part of the apple crisp leftover in the fridge-it will be delicious on something, but I just don't know what yet.
  • Robby, Keaton, Graham, Campbell and I went to visit the camper. We had a few things to put in, and Robby worked on two different tv stands. We were over there longer than we anticipated, but it didn't help that I got caught up watching the show Gimme a Break from way back when on the tv.
  • When we came home, I sat in the living room and dozed while watching an NBA game with Graham. It is just all silly now-virtual fans? Just craziness. After my nap, it was time to head to the pool to meet the Heltz. 
  • We swam for 3 hours tonight-Robby brought us supper and everyone had a good time. I do enjoy evenings at the pool. Today was our 30th visit so we are doing pretty good on my little spreadsheet.
  • This evening we came home with two extras and were short our two little girls. Reagan wanted to paint shoes tonight but we ran to Walmart, making it there 6 minutes before closing, to find they didn't have shoes. We did find some canvases, and they are still in the kitchen painting each other. It was mildly hysterical when Whitman came in the room to tell me that one picture looked like an oval and another looked like Humpty Dumpty.
