Well-Executed Day

Tuesday was a great day. 

We schooled. 

We grilled and had our big meal at lunch time. Stacia helped with prep and was EXCITED that she'd made a "kokeshi" - Japanese Doll.....sort of cracked me up when I remembered Bre and Krista making corn husk dolls a couple of decades ago. 

We took care of "things" on the list...like checking which new school books I still need to order, checking out the new spelling program and  preparing packages for the mail - seven of them. 

We took Jared to football.

The youngers and I went to the swim beach. A storm blew in. We kept swimming. It was a blast to introduce the kids to the pleasure of swimming in a warm ocean in the RAIN.....cool sounds of the rain when you duck under....fresh water on your head, salt water splashing up.....and then there was a rainbow...that seemed to start at the wharf and touch down in the ocean.  I was glad we got caught in the storm.

The day ended with a 2 1/2 hour Skype call with a ministry partner.

Makes me jealous to hear of beach and rain..... love the sound and the rain. Enjoy for us too.

Ugh - shopping for them is fun, sending them is fun - packing them always slides to the bottom of my to do list. LOL
