"I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life;
to put to rout all that was not life and not when I had come to die, discover that I had not lived." ~Henry David Thoreau

Texas Day 9

(pictures are very out of order)

-Ran errands with Gov first thing in the morning.

-Cheryl Cobb came over with Mary and Carson to swim.

-Jessica Filina came over with her kids for another try at swimming and they stayed for lunch.  No rain!!

-After continually getting in the pool with no floaties on and wandering into too deep water, we decided it was time to teach Devin how to safely make it back to the wall or stairs if he was about to drown.  We took off his floaties and he actually started swimming!!  Completely unassisted.  The kid is determined to do everything faster than any of the other kids and this is proving to be no different. 

-Missionaries came over to do laundry.  While they waited, Gov showed them and Ethan how to burn things with a magnifying glass (he was really just teaching Ethan, but the missionaries had fun playing too!)  They tried to pop corn in a tin pie plate and got a few kernals to pop!  No matter what their age, boys will always be pyros!

-Had a DELICIOUS chicken tatrazzini dinner.

-Kids went out and played on the big orange tractor.  Devin was in heaven playing with the gears and making the bucket go up and down!  They even got to help Gov shovel and scoop dirt!

-Ethan hadn't been feeling well in the evening and he got ready for bed early.  He didn't want to miss the fun outside so he played even though he was already in his PJs.  But before bed he started running fever.  Oh great...here we go again!

-Cody and I stayed up to watch more stand up comedy on Netflix.  It's becoming one of our favorite things to do together!
