Today started with our upside down day (Thanks Joyce!) and we had pizza for breakfast. Then we went to the post office to mail a couple of packages and finally to the Goodwill to clear out my garage. By the time we got home Bill was up and the kids played and started bickering and bickering and Bill lost it. He really yelled and pounded his fist on the kitchen table. After he got their attention, they were perfect for hours! We had sandwiches for lunch and then later the boys and Lucy and I went out in the yard for a water fight. Our thermometer read 105 degrees. We had a ball getting each other wet and being the one in charge of the hose. Then we started the round sprinkler and ran through that for awhile. Justin said he didn't know of any other grandma who had water fights with the kids. We then had ice cream and popsicles. We came in the house and took showers and within about 10 minutes after we were finished it was pouring and windy and thundering outside. It rained for probably a half hour and then it was done but it did cool off. It is now only 86 degrees. For dinner we had sausage, cereal and waffles. Now the kids are playing quietly and I am writing this. These kids are kids and they have had their squabbles but darn, they are really good boys. We have enjoyed them but we are tired as well. Tomorrow is the last day. We don't know what we will do yet but I am sure we will have fun doing something. Oh! Aaron is starting to ask to go home. This is a long time for a little guy. Justin would stay longer he says. Bet his story changes when he sees Mom and Dad.
