  • Only 3 more days of school this week after everyone finished today's work. This is a fairly lite week which is good because this is turning out to be a busy week. 
  • I was able to do all of my morning chores and start work on cleaning out the school room closet before noon this morning. I then jumped on the treadmill, and Reagan left to see Annie for a little bit, and all the other kids except for Whitman left for Grannymom's house.
  • When I finished with the treadmill, it was time for Robby, Whitman and I to go to Grannymom's house to help the kids with the rocks. Grannymom had 5 yards of rocks delivered today, and by the time we arrived the kids had gone to town on it.
  • We were able to help quite a bit, but let's talk about Whitman-he worked harder the first little bit than I have ever seen him work. It was a little bit odd. I wasn't expecting much, since this weekend he kind of has had a cold, but apparently he felt fine today and shoveled up a storm.
  • We worked for a few hours and then all headed home. Anderson then went to Raymar to set things up for soccer tonight, and Keaton and Campbell went with him. I took a nap and woke to Graham asking me when we were leaving. The answer to that question was right then so the rest of us all loaded up for Raymay. And a few minutes after we arrived, Reagan showed up.
  • Reagan was really working tonight since they were taking make up pictures. Graham reffed two different games. Campbell was supposed to work in the concession stand for an hour and then ref a game, but she ended up reffing two games. 
  • Anderson reffed the second game and called Reagan in the 5th period. He had fallen in a hole and twisted his ankle. Reagan ran over and finished reffing his game while Anderson sat and iced his ankle.
  • It is super swollen, but he can walk on it. Right now he had take some tylenol and is icing it with it laying on a pillow. We have one ankle brace which Keaton has been using for a few days, so I orered another one which will be here tomorrow for Anderson. He has school and then work tomorrow so hopefully it will get better quickly. 
  • Right now the kids have all had showers, some have had ice cream, the Castle watchers are all watching one, and as soon as it is over, I am hurrying to the shower and then to bed.
