  • Campbell, Keaton and Whitman were the first ones up this morning-well, actually I was the first one up this morning because I had to wake them up. Pops and Nonna stopped by to pick those three strawberry pickers up for an early morning run to the strawberry patch.
  • Unfortunately, they weren't able to find as many strawberries as they had hoped, however, they had a great time. Nonna said that they were a sweaty bunch when they had finished picking the strawberries. It was enough for me to slice a bowl full, and then they have a few that they can eat.
  • While they were gone, I did the only productive things that I did all day long-empty the dishwasher and put a new sheet on in the camper. Really, that is about all that I have done worth anything all day.
  • Oh, yes, I have been completely distracted with the 1000 piece puzzle that we started yesterday and finished today. Campbell and Keaton have been my mine puzzlers. However, Robby did help a little bit this evening. I was also able to get Anderson to do a few pieces only when I was bribing him with food.
  • The most exciting activity today was taking Bentley to the pet parade at ChickFilA. There wasn't much to it, but Bentley did dress up and received free nuggets. Well, she didn't really get the free nuggets-we did. Oh, we also took her through a car wash for the first time. She didn't really seem to mind at all.
  • The next adventure was taking Reagan, Kennedy, Graham, Campbell and Keaton to a few stores-Michaels, Hobby Lobby, Goodwill and Walmart. Gracious me. It took us a little while but I do think that everyone found something. The main search was for shirts for the big kids camp coming up. We were able to find some so that was good. 
  • Then there was lots of new discoveries at Goodwill. Campbell and Keaton both snagged some shoes. Kennedy and Reagan both found things at Goodwill and decided to split their purchases-I could never figure out how exactly they were going to split their clothes. They didn't seem to worry about it, so I sure didn't either.
  • As soon as we came home, I left again with Robby to wash the big white van and do some grocery shopping. When we did come home with the groceries, Campbell was quick to remind us that we also had a grocery delivery while we were gone. Yes, we were shopping while we were having groceries dropped off at the house. Necessities from Walmart and sales from Kroger. 
  • We made it back home just as Campbell, Keaton and Whitman were going to the neighbors house for swim for a little bit. They swam while we made supper for the others. When they came in, they quickly showered before eating their supper. 
  • Soon it was after 10 and this crew was headed to bed. Last night was stay up late night so I am sure that folks are super tired tonight.
