  • 98 miles today! Mainly due to the 3 that we walked this morning. I really could not have gotten a later start, but I figured that the kids didn't mind sleeping in a little bit. I should try to do better tomorrow morning, but gracious I was having some crazy dreams lats night about buying drinks at Disney.
  • After our walk, I started on school with the people. Reagan had to write a poem so she did that first this morning. Each week one of Whitman's activities is to play a game of checkers. It was chess, but he didn't seem to enjoy it. 
  • However, today Whitman and Graham played chess for at least 30 minutes. This is all well and good except the boy had school to do. Finally, I had to put an end to the game so Anderson took Whitman's turn and then Graham and him played for at least 15 more minutes. Seriously, this kind of made me crazy-those three all seem to find most anything to do except for school work!
  • I was able to finish most of my school work by 1:30 today so that did make me happy. However, I did have to work through lunch with Anderson doing math and Graham working on science. 
  • I then worked on packing some in the camper. Most everything is ready, but the next few days are going to be a bit logistically challenging with everyone going difference places. I'll feel better about most things when I know when Reagan's soccer games are so we can figure all of that out.
  • Actually, I would feel alot better about his weekend if the rain chances completely go away. That would make me happy. I have packed my clothes already and am prepared for all the seasons-summer (heat), winter (cold), spring (rain) and fall (perfect).  Hopefully, I won't need the winter and spring clothes though.
  • After our second walk today, Robby and I left with the boys to get their hair cut. I don't think that any of them thought that they needed a hair cut, but they all did. Anderson's is a bit on the short side, but it will look good in a few days. And really they all look so much better.
  • When we came home from this errand, we turned right around and left again wtih the Wilsons so we could watch them spend some of their money. Robby and I were pleased that we didn't buy anything whiile we were out-he did, however, just run to Sams and Walmart right before while I was getting the boys' haircuts.
  • Once we were back home for good, I worked with Reagan on some Enlgish before it was finally bedtime for everyone. I really wanted some ice cream tonight, but I am not sure if that is going to happen.
