Happy Birthday, Candace!! She’s 6 today!
The 23rd: Instead of sitting around at the McMillans doing nothing, I got to go to art class with Anna. Yayness! I’ll post what we drew when I can get ahold of a scanner. Seeing our old house was weird… then we visited some old neighbors and went to an Arab family’s house. I spent most of that time drawing.
The 24th: In the morning the Bennet’s brought Einstein bagels for breakfast (yummy… I ate 2 1/2, plus a bunch of MASSIVE strawberries – the small ones were huge!). After they left I practiced my guitar for a while, played the piano, and watched part of Little House on the Pararie (Season 3). Dad, Nate, and Candace got home from somewhere, and we all watched Charlotte’s Web as a family. The one with Dakota Fanning – it was good. In the evening we went to the Cherry’s for dinner. I borrowed the first Underland Chronicles (Gregor the Overlander, The Prophecy of Bane) from them, and I’ve already finished the first one. I love them! They may seem a bit young, but they’re still reaaaaaaaally good.
Today: Mom went to get her liscense renewed, and I watched more Little House, then read some. We went over to the Sauve’s (www.9soladeogloria.blogspot.com), bringing them a meal of cheese bread and zatar, along with the spinach pies, meat pies, and some other sort of pies. Mrs. Sauve showed us around the house, and Christianna, Grace, Cait, and I were playing with their Chinchillas for a while. After lunch, we went out front and pulled weeds and did other gardening for a while. It was fun helping them, and we’ve also not done any gardening for a long time – I’ve trimmed our bushes and straightened the front yard before, but not any actual gardening. After the Sauves, we came back to the Swifts (where we’re staying), and then headed off to the Simnowitz’s. Nate played with Matthew and Michael while Candace tagged along, and I watched Jonathan for a while, and then read and drew some (I got a pretty good one done – of Matthias in my book).
(Edit – that was yesterday, we had to run out of the door for the Simnowitzs… today Cait and Daddy are driving up to Alma for the Alma Highland Games, and I’m going over to Emily’s for a while, and Naomi and Micaiah are going to be there… what a day for rain.)
