  • I do believe that today was the latest start to school so far this year. We will finish the main things for sure, but really, I want to at least finish all of my library books that I have planned on reading this year. And since we are too slowly working through them, that means that I can't check any other ones out from the library. 
  • I am not a big reader, but I do love checking out books from the library. I currently have about 300 books on my list to check out. Some are to read to all of the kids, some are for some of the kids to read, and some are even movies for me to watch this summer. 
  • After doing our reading, everyone started on their together work. About this time every year, the kids have less and less work to do each week because they are finishing things (all except for Reagan this year). This is great, however, it causes me to stress about next year. If we are taking this long while doing less, then how long will things take next year? I always stress about this, but everything always ends up working out just fine.
  • Whitman had a few less things today so he zoomed through his school. I was still working with Graham with Anderson waiting when I realized that it was time to take Reagan to school. She was ready, but I was not. Thankfully, Robby was able to take her and pick her up. She just has one class on Thursdays so there isn't much time at all for running errands.
  • While she was gone, I packed a little bit in the camper-really, I filled up most of our cabinet space with our snacks. We won't go hungry for sure! Tomorrow I will have to find some room to squeeze in our real food plus I am having to squeeze in all of our dog stuff. And that I am realizing is like packing for another person.
  • Keaton and I went to the pregnancy center this afternoon for a little bit. We worked mainly on the diapers which is my favorite thing to do-Keaton's too. On the way there we had been talking about making dog treats, so Keaton looked on line on our drive. 
  • We found some cookie cutters at and asked Robby to buy them for us. He tried, but the immediately cancelled his order. So we found that there were some in Benton, so on the way home, we ran by the Walmart, and got our dog bone shaped cookie cutters. Now, I am not sure what our rush was to get them, because I sure am not making any in the next few days, but at least I am ready whenever I need to make them.
  • We were home for a little bit, when we headed to Nonna and Pops' house for supper. We will miss Sunday lunch over there, so they fed us tonight. Pops had bbq and ribs-my rib eating kids sure enjoyed the ribs for sure. I don't have a ton of rib eaters-just Graham, Campbell and Reagan (I think), but we are all bbq eaters for sure though.
  • We stayed at Nonna's for a little bit while we finished up one of our games. Then we headed home to check on Bentley. She was just fine-but a little ready to get out of her crate. The rest of the evening we just kind of hung out in the living room. I read a cookbook and the kids played on their devices.
