Yesterday was wonderful!

It was such a great day Yesterday! My oldest son came over to help with some lawn work and earn a few dollars. And Tori and Will came over in the afternoon and will needed to change the spark plugs on his truck. Will's father went to Germany to race in the Dragon Boats. Makala was minding enough--right on the edge but OK--and we all BBQ ed.

It was a real nice gathering and the food turned out to be great! We had Ice Cream Cones after dinner. Makala tossed the Kitten in the Sprinkler and tried to pretend she didn't do anything wrong or that she had no idea why that might not be OK.... DUH! Anyway, everyone had a nice time even the Kitten the older Kids were pretty hard on Makala about the Kitten in the Sprinkler episode... Makala ended up feeling pretty bad about it--or so it appeared anyway--I guess you can never know for sure. Makala is such a great liar lately.

I am planning to start giving myself far more breaks! Since no one here seems to care what the 'quality' of food is around this house I am going to start giving them the easy stuff! Really why make it hard on myself and give them something to gobble up without thinking about it. That is what happens anyway. Andrew is going to be getting some Nights in charge of the kids.
