  • I have just been pretty exhausted today. Maybe it was because that dog of ours saw a squirrel this morning while she was laying in our bed after she went potty. Usually she will lay quietly in the bed for a long while. Today though she wasn't having it-she was on squirrel patrol. I guess I need to invest in some less see through blinds.
  • Reagan and one of her friends that spent the night made muffins at some point this morning-before I woke up. I think that they actually were making themselves a bedtime snack because after making the muffins we never heard anything from them for a while. When Robby went to the bathroom in the middle of the night, he could hear that they were still awake. I guess I probably am not as tired as Reagan is!
  • Before the boys were awake, I walked Bentley, folded the clothes and emptied the dishwasher. I alternate between the dishes and laundry as my most hated chore. Today it was the dishes! We use a lot of paper products, but we still seem to have a dishwasher full every day. I can't imagine what it would be like if we didn't use paper stuff too.
  • Campbell and Keaton returned this morning from Grannymom and Grandpa's house. They had a fun visit and came home with a few treasures that they bought while out shopping. Campbell also returned with samples of all of her food that she made-my observations: the mashed potatoes were a bit runny, but they were really good. The green beans were good though I'm not a fan of frozen green beans. The meatballs were a bit too salty or something though I ate quite a few for my supper tonight. Oh and the rolls were delicious. Unfortunately, the lava cakes were all gone, but Campbell said that was definitely a keeper recipe.
  • This afternoon Robby took the little three to the pool. They had a few thunder delays but still enjoyed swimming. They stayed until after 5. This was our 30th visit to the pool this summer not counting swim team practices. 35 is my goal each year so I think that we will definitely make it. 
  • While they were there, I went to the pregnancy center for a little bit. I spent my time folding clothes and organizing pants. The time quickly flew by and soon I was heading home. When I made it home, I met the Amazon man who Anderson had been waiting on all the day long. He had bought a game earlier this week and was watching the clock hoping that it would arrive today.
  • This evening we just pulled out leftovers for supper and sat around staring at our devices. Well, we did spend some time torturing the dog. Campbell and Keaton had bought dog rain boots. Bentley didn't mind us putting them on her, but when we did she would just stand there and not move. When we would get her to walk she would kick her leg out and look like a crazy dog-it was super entertaining for us!
