The day began at 5:30 a.m. with me up and making Ooey Gooey Bars, a giant salad and changing the blog look to celebrate Jared's birthday.
The boys and Mike went in for Sunday School. There must have been some mix-up as their teacher didn't arrive....prompting a few comments about how they could have slept in. ::snort::
The younger ones and I arrived in time for church (their teacher is ill). We had an hour to kill between the Protestant service and the ginormous farewell potluck for Father Jim.
Mike and the boys went to the gym. I kept trying to get google to work. ::grrrr:: I also began work on a 5 week meal plan. I used to do this sort of "haphazardly" but I think we'll save $ and time if I write it out.
Josiah came over for one of Mike's Famous Ice Cream Cakes. We played more Cosmic Ball and Mafia. We weren't sure we could play Mafia without Bre, David and Krista here. We missed y'all, but it did work with Josiah here.
Zander finally won.
It was a very full and fun day. I thought we'd begin school on the 7th when Mike is officially supposed to report for duty...but he is going in tomorrow and Tuesday (and went in today for RE, Service and Potluck - let's just say duty began on the 4th - well then he went in on Friday for 6 hours and another day too ::snort::). Maybe we'll start school tomorrow - though I'm really not ready as I was aiming for Wed. Hmmm.... We had planned to work on Jamin's driver license and scholarships. Basically, I need to get all the forms together and take him to the DMV....
