We spent a couple of hours yesterday with Brian's brother, sister-in-law, their kids, and his parents and had a great time. Camden's cousin, Logan, is 2 years older than Camden, but they always immediately hit it off and play together so well. We only see them every 12-15 months, but they're always able to just pick up as if it were just yesterday. It is so sweet, and they play HARD!

After they left, we let Rory take a short nap, woke up her up, grocery shopped, came home, ate supper, and sent the kids to bed! I helped Brian with standardized tests last night - so repetitive! With everything teachers have to do, it's kind of crazy that they have to hand-write the student's names, class info, etc. on EVERY, SINGLE PAGE for EVERY SINGLE CLASS for EVERY SINGLE STUDENT! Hours of work!

I'm taking the kids over to play with the cousins again this morning, then we'll come home for naptime and I'll work on the laundry. It worked out pretty well last week to do it all in one day and then not worry about it again so I'm going to try that method again.

I'm so disappointed this morning. We were planning to go to the Steven Curtis Chapman/Michael W. Smith concert with Bo and Mayme, but when I tried to order tickets this morning, the only ones left are $120 (for both), and it's just not good use of our money. Sometimes I miss the days of being a two-income family!

Bummer about the concert tickets. :( Smitty is awesome in concert, but I hear ya about the money. The perks of being home with the kids are great, but right now...the extra money would REALLY help too.

I'm sorry about the tickets. The boys are begging to go see Thomas Live, but it would cost us over $130, and I just don't know if I can justify it. Like you, there are days that I miss having two incomes, but I wouldn't trade being a SAHM for anything!
