It was raining this morning when we got up. It rained off and on all morning but cleared up a little this afternoon. I got one load of laundry almost dry outside.
Joe went up to the church today to continue working on the wall. Today, they got the forms ready and poured the pillars between the bricks that they had laid on Saturday. Tomorrow, they will lay more bricks. It is a project that takes time. Each step has to dry a little before the next step can be done.
The kids wanted to do an art project this morning. I found a July 4 picture online but could not get it to print. So, I folded a piece of paper like a little book and made my own July 4 card. Then, I made a copy of it for all three kids. I am not an artist, but they haven’t figured that out yet. They were so proud to show their cards to Kristine and to Joe when he got home. Danny made several of his own after he finished that one. Then, he kept misplacing them and would go into panic mode.
Before the Luthers left, Joel gave Gilbert his wooden boat that he had made so that Gilbert could use it while they are gone. Gilbert took advantage of the puddles this morning and was floating the boat. Danny and Bonnie joined him. They all needed a change of clothes when they came in.
I made cheddar potato soup and tuna sandwiches for lunch. The kids really like that soup. Joe was still working at the church; so, we saved some for him. Kristine ate with us.
After lunch, the kids went down for naps. Gilbert came to get me because the wooden slats from his bed had fallen on top of Danny. I’m not sure why Danny was underneath the bed in the first place. I got the bed put back together. Danny and Bonnie finally went to sleep. If Gilbert rests until the other two go to sleep, he can get up.
After naps, I started working on supper. I made hotdog buns. Then, I made some brownies for dessert.
After supper, we played a couple games of Cadoo. Danny was heartbroken because he didn’t win. After Joe talked to him, Danny came and apologized to me and Kristine for the way he acted. I guess it is all part of the learning process.
I trimmed Bonnie’s hair. The boys were needing a hair cut too. So, I cut their hair after I finished with Bonnie’s. Joe usually does it, but he was too tired after building a wall all day. I trimmed my own too. Now, everyone should be good to go for a while. Joe got his cut while we were in Ivory Coast; so, he didn’t need one yet.
After baths, we read our bed time story. I thought all of the kids were asleep, but Danny just came out to say that Daddy hadn’t given him kisses. Joe was already asleep, but Danny woke him up for kisses. He’s got to have those kisses!! : )
Joe, Laura, Gilbert, Danny, and Bonnie
