Sunday the grands at church asked Michael if they could have a Grandpa Playdate at their house this week. He suggested they come to our house Friday afternoon. I had plans to run errands and let them have time alone...but in the end they had been asking if Grandma would be around too - and it was fun to be a part of their grand day. It was a blast to see Michael set aside his to do list and simply play with the kids.

Papa built a gate to our orchard today. Annie helped sweep the area with the magnet on a stick for spare nails, screws etc.

Allie and Stacia went to the fair after finishing up at the college. ABC gave all the Freshman free tickets. They are having a blast. They've finished all the entrance tests, all the sessions provided to incoming students, fees are paid, books and tuition paid...they are fully oriented. They are getting a clearer picture of how in person vs/ online college compare. There are pros and cons for each option. They met many professors. They liked their fellow students. Stacia reports she didn't even hit a 1 on the anxiety scale we use around here. We have been very impressed with all the staff and professors we've met.
Stacia raced to her laptop for her Japanese class when she got home. Allie took me into town to buy a few things for tomorrow and to pick up a pizza. We wanted to be together, I could have done it alone. I decided to unashamedly buy a cheesecake instead of making one. I was going to pass one off as my chocolate Andes cheesecake, but Bre said they'd know. LOL
The kids went home. We had pizza. We spent the evening watching comfort movies...like Family Affair and the original Parent Trap. It was a relaxing evening at the end of a busy week...going into a busier weekend.
Jared and Larissa sent another couple of darling shots from Juneau. They're on their way back home.
