  • I was up way too late last night thinking about Keaton's silly quilt. I think I do have everything sorted out in my mind-I thought about writing things down so I could rest, but I did eventually fall asleep. This project kind of overwhelms me, but I do really enjoy having a project.
  • We did sleep in a little bit this morning, but soon Robby and I were up and loading bicycles to donate into the car. We ran by Pops' house to pick up some cookies, then dropped off 5 bicycles that were collecting dust in the garage, and then grabbed some ice cream for the drive home. 
  • When we came home, I sat ourside by the smoker and worked on my list for next week. Robby was smoking a turkey that had been in our deep freeze. We weren't too sure how it would turn out, but we tried it anyway.
  • Around 1, we took two cars to get gas. Then I took Campbell, Keaton and Whitman to the pool. This might just be our last time to go to the pool this year. My normal pool visits are around 40 or higher, but this year I have just crossed the 25 mark. Anderson never even made it to the pool this year.
  • We stayed for a while, but then headed home with two extra girls. Campbell and Keaton have then stayed busy for the rest of the afternoon-water balloons were the first thing on their agenda. 
  • Pretty early in the evening, the turkey was ready, and it was pretty good. We were pleased that it worked so well, but it really is still a lot of work for some meat. Now, the bbq that we make seems much easier than this turkey was.
  • After supper, Robby and I ran a few errands before coming home to sit in our chairs. The boys have been fairly quiet today. Graham did have a little bit of school work to do today which he did early this morning. 
  • Anderson bought a Lego set last night, and he has built it and rebuilt it 3 times in the last 24 hours. It is a set that you can rebuild into another type of car, but he still does love him some Legos.
  • Reagan also had some school work that she worked on. She also gave me quite a fright when she couldn't find her soccer uniform from last year. I had just stepped into the attic to decide where I was going to look first when she called out that she found it-my prayers were answered!
  • I believe that the girls and their friends are about to start watching a movie, and I might just sit here and read some of my book.
