  • So this was the earliest day yet this week. Graham and I had to be at the Nutrition Center at 8:15 this morning. You shouldn't be surprised when you learn that when we left, the house was still snoozing. All but Bentley, she slept until my alarm at 6:45 and then we played pretty hard so she would snooze in her kennel until everyone else woke up.
  • I think that Campbell was the first one awake-or the first one to remember that we had a dog. She did get her out and feed her breakfast this morning. I had left a long list of chores with strong encouragement for everyone to keep the house clean. When we eventually did come home, they had very nicely done both things.
  • Graham had a pretty long day at the Nutrition Center-they drew his blood every hour. They just put an iv in to make it easier. Of course he did great and didn't seem to mind it at all. I was the one who was a bit more antsy-it was a long day to sit in a waiting room chair without any food. I didn't know he had to fast-or I would have brought myself some food to eat on the sly.
  • He was greatly rewarded at the end of the visit with ChickFilA-sandwich, shake and fries. All of my other folks were also rewarded with ChickFilA. Grannymom and Grandpa came over to eat lunch with everyone to help break up their day just a little bit.
  • They ate outside on the patio and enjoyed the nice weather. The girls even drove to the plant nursery where Campbell bought some watermelon seeds. She has since planted them, watered them and even checked them a few times today.
  • Tonight was the last Wednesday night for the summer. I would say yippee, but really we have missed so much church that I just can't get too excited about it. My kids love it too so folks were a bit bummed. Now my big kids did all have tacos tonight and the littles had popcorn and snow cones so who can be sad with lots of snacks.
  • We even stayed at the church house until almost 8 before heading home. When we did come home, we found our suppers and all eventually crowded in the bonus room to watch The Call of the Wild which is the book that we just finished reading.
  • After the movie was over, it was time for my crew to go to bed. Tomorrow is the last full day of school for everyone-next week starts our summer school schedule!
