  • Whitman walked through our room this morning. I was too tired to make sure that he left wearing different clothes (sometimes he has to change because he is a water drinker at night.) This morning when I realized that he had on the same clothes, I asked what he was doing. He said that he had come to get in bed with us but didn't want to wake us up. 
  • I quickly told him that he could wake us up anytime to get in bed with us. We talk often about those days when we would have 3 or 4 kiddos in our bed in the morning time. We kind of miss those days-kind of!
  • We did a little bit less of reading this morning so Keaton and Whitman could do Bible study-they didn't want to so I didn't make them. The three littles all are perfectly caught up and do their Bible study with me each and every day so I know that they are getting it.
  • Campbell still wanted to do her Bible study today. It lasts over an hour which is just too much for me. I am sure that my adult class also goes a while, but I haven't been on those zooms at all this year! Though I am also all caught up on my Bible.
  • School went well again today and my laundry pile was fairly small so that made for a happy morning for me. We were able to finish up most everything before lunch time. Whenever Whitman finishes his school work, he shouts, "I'm done with school" loud enough for everyone to hear.
  • I did some work on the cricut this afternoon. I still have a little sign to make for the camper-we are getting that thing ready. Robby worked on it quite a bit of the evening tonight getting the new mudflaps on.
  • Soon we loaded up and headed to meet our buddies at the park. I thought we were supposed to be there at 2 so I set my alarm yesterday to remind me and ring at 1:30. By the time that I woke up, I thought that I should be there at 1:30 so we left at 1:10. Even with all of this, I neglected to read my text telling me that we were meeting at 2:30. Ha!
  • We were just a little bit early. That was fine because we figured it out before we got there and headed to Sonic. We grabbed some drinks and then had to wait there about 10 more minutes for their pretzels to go half off., When they did, we bought 5 and shared them. After all of our drinking and eating, we arrived at the park only a few minutes before everyone else!
  • The kids so enjoyed playing with their buddies today. They stayed moving the entire time-well, you really had to stay moving or you would freeze to death. At least I was freezing to death-it was chilly out there.
  • Once we came home, I started on supper. It took a while to heat up our bbq. I had even set the table, but soon realized that the hogs were playing and our dinner would need to move to the living room. 
  • If you remember, I had said last night that I was going to eat better today and reward myself with some hot chocolate tonight. Well, that was the plan-and I did eat better (some). However, I am currently attempting to make my grandmother's dinner rolls.
  • I say attempting because I never really have good luck with bread. Also, my lack of planning will cause the rolls to be finished around bedtime tonight! Hopefully, they will be good, and I will be the hot roll maker for the family!
  • Roll update-they were delicious. The whole family was pleasantly surprised. My favorite child said that they were better than Hawaiian rolls, and Robby said that they compared to Sister Schubert. Now of course there were two Dennie children that returned their half eaten rolls, but I will say that 6 out of 8 thumbs up made me crazy happy tonight!
