The kids are outside running in the sprinklers and throwing water balloons at each other. It's not really all that warm outside, but it is warmer than it has been and it's sunny so I guess they are taking advantage of nice weather. I was going to take a picture of them, but a small boy pirated all the batteries out of the cameras around to run his wii remotes.
I had some chores to do this morning and am now ready to shower but I can't, because they are outside and I need to hear them. To make sure they are safe and being nice. So I will wait.
Jenna went to the grocery store. She offered, I think so I couldn't assign her another chore instead :), and so I made a list and off she went. I told her to look at the prices of things and choose wisely. I don't really like to shop and she thinks it's exciting so that's a good thing.
Big is off at work. It's been a struggle for him lately, things are super stressful and he is caught in the crossfires. At best he is a far cry from a "Mr Rogers" kind of a guy, he's intense and black/white and quick to act. That's not a bad thing, in fact in many circumstances that's just the kind of guy you want to have around. However, dealing with stress is not his strongest suit.
J just got back, she spent less than I told her and brought home "festive Halloween cookies" :) So I guess I can go shower now.
Gospel Doctrine was very interesting yesterday. We are in Isaiah, not my fav, but Bro Mitchell had so many insights and so much cultural background that Big and I really enjoyed it. Sacrament was also very nice, Johna sang a beautiful musical number and the talks were good. The Rays invited us to dinner and we had a very nice visit and the food was delish!!
