  • What a wonderful Friday this was. We really didn't do anything at all. The kids all slept until almost 11 or really some slept even later. 
  • Robby ran a few errands this morning and even came home with a load of groceries. I was outside brushing and trimming Bentley so I didn't hear him, and he had to unload the groceries by himself. 
  • I brush Bentley every day. And I am not sure if I have talked about her hair or not. From what I have read Golden Retrievers shed their coat twice a year. However, I have never been figured out when exactly Bentley is shedding her coat, because she is shedding her coat ALL year long.
  • For instance, I brushed her today so long with hair collecting on my, in the brush, on the table, and tons of hair flying through the air. My thought is that any hair that we leave outside is hair that does not fall of in our house.
  • But today I did more than brush her, I also trimmed her. She is kind of like my own chia pet. I kind of enjoying trimming her hair-makes me wish I could cut the boys' hair too, but they might be a little pickier than the dog. And I must have done a decent job on the dog today because no one has noticed her trim.
  • At 1 today, Keaton, Whitman, Campbell, Graham, Anderson and I went to Defy. We were there for about 50 minutes when the kids decided that they were ready to go. I thought that was good since I could hear the thunder, and it looked like the storm was not yet on us on the radar...
  • But I was wrong. It was pouring! When we all jumped in the car, the rain from Graham's side was blowing so hard that it blew onto Anderson on the other side of the car. We were all drenched. But not drenched enough that we didn't want to run into the gas station for a drink before going home.
  • We weren't home too long until Keaton's friends started showing up. She has friends over tonight-they have made pasta and made cookie dough. While they were making cookie dough they had one person blind folded, one listening to loud music so they couldn't hear, and two people couldn't talk. Robby and I were trying to watch a movie while they were doing this, and it was quite difficult.
  • Unfortunately, during all of this time I was quite distracted and forgot about the blog so I am quickly trying to finish it now before we urge these people towards their beds.
