  • I do believe that I was the first one awake this morning. Anderson and Graham had been asked to help clean off someone's new property and shop that they bought. Reagan also got word that there were things that she could do, so she joined them. They all left at 7:40 this morning, so I started waking them up around 7. Graham was up when I went up there, and later when I went to check on Reagan she was also awake. Anderson will never make it in college-I had to wake him up 3 times before he did wake up.
  • Once I got them off, I crawled back into the bed. Now, I did do the dishes and laundry while I was waiting on them to leave so the morning wasn't a total loss.
  • Robby and I eventually left this morning to pick up some food for the trip. We did stop at Whataburger for a hamburger. He had a free one, and this was our first time to eat there. I have been craving a burger and thought it was pretty good. Robby compared it to a McDonalds burger, but he said he needed a side by side comparison with an In and Out burger.
  • We bought most everything that Walmart has to sell. Then we headed home to unload. We had been home a bit when the big 3 came in around 1 and gave us all of the details.
  • Not too long after that Robby left with Keaton for Defy. She couldn't get any of her brothers or sisters to go with her, so she went alone. There were a lot of people there today, but she was still able to jump. On their way home, they ran into Kroger and then on to Crumble cookie. 
  • One of this week's cookie was the Twix. If you remember, that is the cookie that Robby and I the girls drove to Fayetteville to get one time when we didn't yet have a Crumble in Little Rock. It was good, but not nearly as good as the oreo or the snickerdoodle that he and Keaton also bought. 
  • While they were gone, Anderson and Graham were home long enough to take showers and then leave again. They went to a friend's house to go swimming for a little bit. They even played some pool.
  • Tonight was the 5th night in a row that all of us sat down at the table to eat a meal together. And since today was national potato day-that is what we had: mashed potatoes, baked potatoes and au gratin potatoes. (The mashed potatoes were leftover, the baked potatoes were the meal, and the au gratin potatoes were for Anderson because he doesn't like baked potatoes.)
  • Right now some people are taking their Saturday night showers. I hope that Graham isn't taking a shower because I know that he has had 3 today, and I sure don't need any more laundry!
