(click for today's pictures)

  • We started our working together around 8:45 this morning-I was surprised that I was able to get everyone around that early thought so I was pleased with our start time. I still wrapped up our reading by 9:30 so no one would get sour with me about having less school time.
  • Campbell was already finished with her school work today since she was super excited about going to a friend's house this afternoon. As we were planning the afternoon, Campbell's friend's little sisters realized that Campbell was coming and soon Keaton was coming as well. So Keaton zoomed through her school work as well this morning.
  • Whitman had less work this morning, but he did not zoom through his work at all-he took his sweet time and finished sometime right after lunch. He actually finished about the same time that Reagan finished with her stuff. Her math has gotten tough, and we are both a bit frustrated with it.
  • I had time to work on the girls' Bible study some before they left. Then Jason came over for a while to visit. When he left, it was time for our Walmart delivery.
  • Bless it-the lady who delivered the groceries was old and even had a hard time walking. Now, we obviously would love to help (it's quicker that way), but that is frowned upon (Covid and they have to take a picture after they put the groceries by the door.) 
  • So we stayed inside until she drove off. When we did open the door, Robby was quick to say, "I didn't order 60 eggs....I didn't order any of this." Yep, we received someone elses's entire order and not a bit of ours. We weren't worried about not getting ours because they make it right, but we were worried about the old lady who delivered the groceries-we had already talked about giving her a big tip and now she is probably going to get fired.
  • Robby was quick to call but both of the Walmart people he talked to said that they could not take the groceries back. So we started unpacking! Like Christmas morning! Roast, carrots, potatoes, onions, baby food, sausage, bacon, oranges, tomatoes, corn dogs and a ton of other things. Needless to say, we are planning on having roast tomorrow...even though we have never made a roast before!
  • We soon zoomed out of the driveway to pick up the girls and then pick up our supper. We had ChickFilA for supper tonight. Everyone was happy to see us when we walked in the door with that supper.
  • After supper, I played Farkle with most of the kids. They seemed to get quite crazy during the game, but I did put them in place by winning! We did let them console their sorrows with a snack. Then the girls and I watched some tv before it was finally time for bed.
