  • I slept as long as I could this morning, and when I finally did get out of bed Whitman and Robby were the only other ones out of bed. Bentley was still sleeping soundly which was about two hours later than usual for her. And of course all of the other kids were sould asleep. 
  • Later in the morning, I did have to start waking up the kids. I made the icing for a cake, and then worked with Whitman on spelling and coding before waking up Campbell and Keaton to read with them.
  • Anderson and Graham still had some school work to do so they had to start working on it. Reagan eventually had to head to work. When Robby returned from his errands, Graham and I decided to run down the road.
  • I knew that it had been raining, but I didn't expect to see that it was still raining and raining pretty hard when I told Graham that he could drive. He did fine-I never even had to wave my arms or grab a hjold of anything. We were able to learn where the lights, windshield wipers and window defogger were.
  • We never taught Reagan where the window defogger was so at one point she was driving down the road and needed it. Thankfully, the car was full of her siblings who worked frantically to help her figure it out-just imagine a car full of people wiping down the windows, opening windows and pushing buttons. They did figure it out, once they made it to the parking lot of where they were going. Now, that is one of the first few lessons.
  • We took Keaton and Whitman to Defy this afternoon for a little bit. I had my hot chocolate so it was delightful except I did burn my tongue I had made my hot chocolate so hot. 
  • Back at home, we soon all headed to Tacos for Life to celebrate Grannymom's birthday. Keaton had worked super hard on oatmeal cream pie cookies for tonight, and they were delicious. We ate those and cake back at Grannymom's after supper.
  • Most of us were still so full from supper that we could hardly eat any cake. Actually, I am stuff right now. I think that Robby and I are about to watch some tv, but really I probably should go and walk on the treadmill.
