I was happy to see a new “Follower” today on this blog. I would like to welcome Karen Hardamon with a big THANK YOU. I appreciate you joining the group to read about our lifestyle as fulltime RVer’s.
The weather has been great here the past several days. We have seen daytime temps from 70 to 77 degrees and it feels wonderful. In spite of the nice weather we spent a quite Wednesday today with the “Grands”. Once we get over to their house in the morning we put the coffee on. Sometimes the girls are still sleeping and sometimes they aren’t. This morning Mackenzie was up when we arrived but was snuggled up on the couch watching TV.
First thing I do is put on my giant reading glasses, grab my coffee, and check out the blogs of the morning.
Sometimes Bruce and I feel a bit weary….even after a good night’s sleep. Could be our busy schedule, ya think? Today was one of those weary days and we decided to just enjoy a quiet day. After doing some work in the math workbook with Mackenzie and the reading workbook with Zoey we played a board game.
Mackenzie is thinking hard about that answer.
Zoey is working on her printing today.
Having finished their homework we got out the Princess Monopoly game. Playing games has always been favorite things to do in our family. Mackenzie ended up winning fair-and-square. In fact, she killed all of us off one by one!
Mackenzie was the banker for the game.
We later took a trip to the used book store over in Olympia where Bruce picked up a couple of books for himself and the girls each got a book to read. I have so many books stashed away that I’ve yet to read I didn’t dare purchase another. A few years ago I bought some children’s CD’s at the Dollar Store, so when we drive we get to hear those….over and over and over and over. The girls enjoy it and they sing along.
After lunch it was time to go over to the library for the weekly children’s program. Mackenzie elected to stay home with Papa this time. Zoey was eager to go. I drove to the Timberland Library with Zoey and we got there early enough to get a good space on the floor. Yeah, Granny here sat on the floor with the kids and the mommies.
Zoey got a front row seat and waited for Aquifer Man to begin the program.
Right on the dot of 2:00 Aquifer Man began his program. He was totally hilarious and had the kids right in the palm of his hand. A real pro with the audience. His program was all about teaching kids the value of working to keep our water resources clean and healthy and he did it all with magic.
Jeff Evans is Aquifer Man. He was fun and entertaining, even for the adults.
His magic act was outstanding. The young Mom sitting on the floor next to me was as amazed as I was at his abilities. She kept asking, “How did he do that?” I had no answer because I couldn’t catch a clue either. He was good.
He did some magic tricks with a rope that were unbelievable. By the time Zoey and I got back to the house Stephanie was home and Bruce and I were relieved of our duties for the day. Tomorrow at 5:30 am our job will begin all over again. Plus….tomorrow evening they will come over to our RV home to begin their 4-night stay with Grandma and Papa. Friday morning we leave for a little camping trip.
I should have titled this post “Weary Wednesday”.
Until next time….so long for now!
