  • This Sunday morning Reagan had to bring breakfast for her Sunday school class. Earlier in the week, Robby had found a huge breakfast platter at Sams full of different pastries-it was so large that Reagan couldn't (or more accurately wouldn't) carry it up to her room. In her defense, she was holding a bag of plates, napkins, and water bottles. Her brother had to help her cart the load upstairs.
  • Our class was down from last week's 24 to just 13 this week. It was certainly a lot easier for sure, but with less kids it seemed to move a bit slowly-I was struggling to come up with an activity to do for the last few minutes.
  • The big boys sit downstairs for church while the girls all go to the Venue for their service. Whitman sits with Robby and me. Now this is our third Sunday that we have been behind kids that are a week bit too spirited for me to be able to pay attention. Maybe I need to sit in upstairs-they say it is dark up there. Maybe if I go up there it will be so dark that I can't see the kids around me acting a fool.
  • We celebrated Robby, Reagan, and Keaton's birthdays at Nonna and Pops's house. She had cakes for all of them along with Reagan's favorite meal-pork tenderloin, mashed potatoes, green beans, corn on the cob, and rolls. They all had presents to open as well so it was a bit party.
  • When we came home, Robby and I took our naps. After a bit, the big boys left to go and play basketball with their buddies. They were gone for a good bit but came home just in time to shower  before heading to Rock Creek. I picked up Shannon for them, then they picked up Caroline so they had a car full of people heading to church.
  • Reagan had her life group at a friend's house. They had a good time, and even talked some about a senior trip. Reagan is really pulling for her friend's to go on a cruise, but she said that no one would probably plan anything.
  • After Rock Creek tonight, they all came here to eat supper. Shannon had made supper and brought it over here since their air conditioner is on the fritz. Supper was delicious and filling-I am actually pretty stuffed right now.
  • They visited for a while, I then took Caroline home, and at the same time Reagan made it home. Now we are watching the last few minutes of a football game, and then it will be bedtime and the end of this weekend.
