Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires...courage.

A day with family, and football

Today we went a bit north to spend some time with Karl's parents. We hung out a bit, Karl cooked burgers on the grill, then Emma went down for her nap. While she napped, I read and the rest of them went next door to swim in the neighbor's pool. I think they had fun....they said the water was nice and cool. I ended up dozing off and on too while they were gone. ;) When Emma woke up it was snack time...she actually had more of a meal-type snack because she barely ate her lunch, but the rest of us had pound cake and ice cream...pretty yummy. We ended up packing up our stuff and leaving around 5:15 p.m. Karl had to get back home to watch the first Auburn game of the season, plus we needed to have Emma home in time for bed. Once I fed her and got her tucked in, the rest of us munched on chicken fingers and chips with dip...typical football game fare. Logan enjoys the game with his dad, but the other two really just watch to get the snacks...then they're off to do other things. They are now in bed, and Karl and Logan are watching the game and discussing the plays, etc. I will be reading about homeschooling...my usual obsession.
