  • This morning started off with swim practice for Campbell, Keaton, Graham and Whitman. Now Whitman usually moans and groans most times that we leave the house. However for swim, he just gets up, puts on his suit and doesn't seem to mind at all. Now he still isn't keen on competition, but practice he is all about.
  • While they were gone, I did my morning routine-dishes, laundry, walk the dog. I did brush her today-usually when I brush her the hair just comes off and floats away in the air. I try to brush her until I can't see any hair, however I never get there and just have to stop. Now, today, I couldn't see the hair at all-maybe I just didn't have my contacts in or maybe she doesn't shed on Saturdays. That would be handy.
  • When the swimmers arrived home, Robby and I started on a little table at the foot of Anderson's bed. We set the tent up and were in the shade at most of the time that we were working. We actually finished fairly quickly, and I started painting it.
  • I did take a break painting it, to walk with Keaton, Campbell and Whitman down the road to the little church for a snow cone treat. They enjoyed them and the walk was nice-but hot.
  • I also took the big boys to Rock Creek again for the day. They were there all day again. When they came home, they were both chattering away-their team won first place. Yesterday, they told us that there team wasn't too athletic, but I guess that still managed a win.
  • Anderson asked if they could go back tomorrow night for their youth group's regular service. Of course the answer was yes since the kids can always to go to church. There was even talk of going on their summer camp trip next year too. I am so glad that they had a great time. 
  • Campbell helped Robby mow the yard this afternoon. She really enjoyed mowing, and I couldn't watch! Robby said that she was very cautious-that's a good thing.
  • We spent our evening at the pool-there was a party there and not many other folks. It was a pretty perfect evening for the pool. The Wilson's picked up the boys, and we all met back here for ice cream. 
  • They brought Annie, and the dogs were pretty good....for a little bit. Bentley eventually started getting a bit scary looking and barking! I don't know what her problem was-silly dog. I do know that she has to start obeying without treats!-maybe we need to start working on that!
