I'll start with the good. Father's Day got off to a good start. Since two kids were going to work straight from morning church, we did presents with breakfast.
We steak, snap beans, corn on the cob, baked potatoes and mug cake with strawberries and whipped cream for lunch.
|And it's done. It's not fancy, but it's quick and inexpensive. You can store the rest of the mix for later .|
Our house looks crazy right now. The twins are at camp. Jasmine and I are ready to leave for St. Louis Wednesday morning. We are going to sight see and then go to convention. Then we'll drive to Indiana and some of the others will meet us there. When we get back, it will only be a day or two until Adam leaves for basic training.
We are changing the rooms around. Kaleb will move in with Tyler, who has always had his own room, so this will be quite an adjustment. But we have three girls in one room, and it doesn't make sense for two boys to have their own rooms while three girls are together.
So the two younger girls will move into Adam's room.
But right now, it looks like a cluttered mess as the rooms are being packed up, cleaned up and one of them repainted (almost the same color, but fresh).

Next, the bad. I'm not going to say a lot about this because there are a lot of raw emotions and a lot of crying still going on here.
|Remember our new little guy? Well, thankfully Caspian isn't afraid of him anymore and they play some now.|
|And when no one else was home one day, Scrappy even interacted with him a little. Scrappy is 14 and has health issues so isn't playful. In fact, he's downright grumpy so it was nice that he didn't growl at the puppy.|
|Possessions are transported to the tent site in wheel barrows.|
|Kaleb seems happy with his tent.|
|Ready for lunch.|
