  • Graham slept well this morning. When he did wake up, Robby and he loaded up and headed to Krispy Kreme for some breakfast. They also stopped at ChickFilA at some point on their trip home. They din't have any trouble on their ride home and were back around 2ish even after stopping at Sams for gas and some items for supper.
  • They had a great time on their little Christmas present getaway. At the game, they were even given super nice Memphis hoodies. Of course, Graham would not wer one, but surely there is someone here that will wear them.
  • Meanwhile, back at the house the rest of us woke up at the normal time and started our school work. I am actually surprised that I was able to get up a decent time. I woke up a bunch last night-I usually sleep really good (even when Robby is away), but I sure didn't last night. I started out with Bentley in bed with me, but when she decided to get down after 1, I just put her right in her kennel. 
  • We did all of our work together work. Then the kids started on their individual work. I am not sure why I moved pretty slow today, but I was still working with Whitman after 1. That was all fine though because I had done other things like read, fold the clothes and straighten a few things while waiting to work with people. 
  • We tried to make some bread again today. It worked and tasted well, but the top didn't rise like it should have. My yeast could be a bit old, so we will try with some new next time. I think I have said it before, but I want to have that one thing that my kids say, "my mom made the best _______." I don't have that yet. I am not too sure if I even have the "my mom made good ______." Ha! Maybe soon though I am running out of time.
  • I took Anderson to his Dgroup at church. This is his first meeting, and I'm super thankful that they were able to meet today. I sat in the car and read some books-yesterday on the way home from his basketball, he asked me what I did. I told him that I read 4 books, and he was quite surprised that I finished 4 books. I had to explain that they were just recipe books tat I was flipping through. Today was more of the same.
  • Once at home, we eventually started on supper-ham and cheese croissants and pepperoni and mozzarella croissants. Surprisingly, we didn't have any chips so I whipped up some mac and cheese from the box. After eating, the kids and I played Apples and Apples, and I was the big winner.
  • Currently, Robby and I watching the Hogs playing, and it is pretty quiet in this house. Hopefully, it will stay quiet!
