Daily Doings (August)

0801 (Sunday) Being Fast Sunday we didn't do our usual breakfast before church, but waited until after. Mom and the little ones walked to and from church. Landon and Mom filled out his registration for Elkridge. Scott and Amy stopped by to pick up a registration for a half marathon that Daddy had won in his race yesterday. Mom cleaned the big tub then let the little boys take a bath in it with their goggles on. The boys had a video chat with Uncle Clay.

WEEKLY TOTALS: Landon 18 ($2.50), Callahan 36 ($5+), Keaton 19 ($2.50)

0802 (Monday) Back to routine ... two more weeks until the Columbia kids start school, Landon gets a little longer. The little boys started swimming lessons again. At first, both complained, but they seemed happy once they were there. B&J and other friends weren't around, so the boys were a bit bored. But then they actually got jobs done ... even Landon! That made Mom happy. It was overcast and then rained again, then the sun came out making it humid and muggy. B&J came home (finally!) and the older kids played "Clue". Mom vacuumed the kitchen and almost sucked up a little praying mantis that was wandering the house. Landon caught it and put it with the other one. He and Keaton have been busy catching bugs for them. We've seen them munch on several flies and spiders. Daddy brought home pizza, breadsticks and cinnasticks from Dominos. The pizza had white sauce, so even Mom ate some.

0803 (Tuesday) Landon was up and at it early today, getting jobs done before anyone else. Mom took the little boys to swimming lessons, then it was time to go to Jaxon's birthday party. It was at the Kearns Oquirrh Park Fitness Center. It is right next to the Olympic Oval where we had gone ice skating, but we'd never been to the pools. There were FIVE pools, diving platforms, slides, sprinklers and a HUGE bucket that would dump water on anyone underneath it. The kids had fun, it was just a little hard for Mom to try and watch both Colton and Cooper, who wanted to be in different pools and parts.

0804 (Wednesday) The little boys had swimming lessons in the morning. The older boys were busy doing jobs again today *Ü* It was overcast and raining again. Clay & Courtney got hail, but we just had a quick, heavy shower. Callahan was all ready for basketball practice when the call came that it was canceled. Colton still had soccer. Landon and Callahan had scouts in the evening.

0805 (Thursday) Swimming lessons for the little boys again. The older boys FINALLY played the Monopoly card game that we've had for a while now, and they thought it was really fun. Mom went out for some shopping, trying to find some brown collar shirts for a big family picture on Monday. Callahan's friend Stockton came over for a while, and we all went bowling then played a few games in the arcade. Callahan had basketball practice and Keaton had scouts in the evening, Landon hung out with friends.

0806 (Friday) Mom took off in the morning to drop off Landon's school registration and pick up Dad's drycleaning ... she picked up some donuts too ... we love Dunford Donuts ... and fudge brownies. Played some more Monopoly Deal today. In the early evening, Mom and Dad went to a movie. Callahan had basketball practice.

0807 (Saturday) Dad and Landon had a youth service project in the morning. Mom, Callahan, Keaton and Cooper got up and off early to Colton's soccer game. We were in charge of bringing the oranges for the halftime snack. There were two really good kids on the other team and they creamed our little guys, but Colton did get one goal. They took team pictures after the game. Callahan had his basketball game at noon at Taylorsville. Keaton, Cooper and Colton (and Jacob) came to watch. They won. Landon and his friends went to KOPFC. When it was time to pick them up, Mom had to have Jacob tend Cooper and Colton. Dad, Callahan and Keaton had a derby ... outside ... and it rained! When I went to pick up Landon&Co it was pouring! But the boys had fun, even though it was super crowded with a big festival going on there today. The little boys got to go swimming next door, and there was the usual soccer game in our front yard in the evening. Daddy brought home some Wendys for dinner. The boys were a little too busy today to get jobs done. Landon: Youth Activity Callahan: Garbages, Dishwasher, WiiFit, Little Fridge, Derby Keaton: Flowers, Derby

0809 (Monday) Today the date is 8-9-10 ... swimming lessons for the little boys. Cooper got invited over to a friend's house (Matthew) and Colton went too. Mom took the older boys and went and got a haircut for Landon and then dropped them off at NickleMania. In the evening we all got dressed up in levis and brown shirts and went to Wheeler Farm for a family photoshoot.

0810 (Tuesday) Landon and Callahan were both up early working out. The little boys had swimming lessons, it was safety day for Cooper. Luckily, Mom had thought to take his life jacket (Cooper and Colton like their own jackets). The boys are doing so well with their swimming! Landon trimmed the grass and Mom mowed (the front anyway, the back doesn't grow as fast and isn't visible to everyone). There was lots of playing today, legos, soccer, basketball and swimming. Landon went to Hayden's for quite a while (but he had gotten his jobs done first). Mom made french toast for dinner. Yum.

0811 (Wednesday) Landon got invited to go to KOPFC ... the other boys just didn't think that was fair. They wanted to have some water fun too. I had been thinking we would try to go back before summer ended, and with school starting next week ... well, we packed up and went out too. It was very windy. The boys had fun playing. We stayed for over three hours. Callahan didn't have his usual basketball practice in the evening, but Colton had soccer practice, and Cooper did too (at the same time!) so Cooper went with a friend on his team. Landon went paintballing with his scouts, Callahan went to scouts but it ended up being canceled.

0812 (Thursday) Last day of swimming lessons for the little boys. They have really progressed this summer! Colton took four sessions (two with Addie, two with Cooper), and Cooper took a total of three (two were half sessions ... he went through level 1, level 2 and level 3 ... and he passed level 3!). Colton was being silly jumping into the water, doing a little spin each time. Then he surprised me and his teacher by DIVING in ... and it was a pretty decent dive too! We took little gift bags to all the teachers the boys have had this summer. After swimming, Mom dropped the older boys off at a movie (Despicable Me) and then went to Walmart with the little boys. Cooper was SO sad they didn't have any basketball card packs :( After we picked up the boys from the movie, we went out to Kearns, to a 7-11 where Landon had left his wallet after yesterday's activities. Then we dropped Callahan off at Stockton's house. Mom had thought ahead enough to bring him some food, and his basketball stuff as he was going straight to practice from there. Landon took off to friends and Keaton had scouts. The babies went swimming at Lavalee's right when Mom had to go pick up Callahan, so she had to get Landon to come tend ... he wasn't too happy about that, even though it was only 30 minutes or so. Mom had to go TO Hayden's house to get Landon though, as Landon didn't have his phone and Hayden wouldn't pick up his phone, and there isn't a regular phone in the house to call. Mom says Landon HAS to have his phone if he wants to go to Hayden's house again ... she has to be able to reach him. Picked up Callahan and then Keaton, and the boys all played out until pretty late.

0813 (Friday) It's Friday the 13th ..... oooooooh ..... it was also the last official day of "summer" as the elementary kids start school on Monday. We went out for our traditional end of summer breakfast at Virgs. Landon actually ate his whole breakfast (HUGE pancake, eggs, bacon and sausage). Colton and Keaton hardly ate anything. The lady at the restaurant told Mom that her boys were very well behaved ... they are good boys. It was a bit of a boring day ... we should have done something fun, being the last day of summer, but Mom's tummy was feeling a little off. Landon's friends had gone to KOPFC again but hadn't offered to take Landon. He wanted Mom to run him up there, but she wasn't feeling up to it and didn't think it would be fair to have to send friends home and load up the little ones to just drop him off. Callahan had a birthday party that started at 4:00 ... and didn't end until 10:30! That's past Mom's bedtime! Mom and Dad didn't go out for their usual Friday night date, Mom pretty much just lay in bed all night (she finished the "Underland" series books). The little boys played outside until quite late, and Landon ended up playing a game he borrowed from Hayden for much of the day. Wasn't a very good "job" day ...

0814 (Saturday) Colton had a soccer game at 9:30, Daddy was able to come watch, but Colton wasn't quite able to perform like he did the first game. Colton's primary teacher, Sister Burton came and watched too. Maga was also there, but none of the brothers decided to come today. Mom went shopping at Sam's Club and stocked up on Doritos. Callahan had a basketball game. Landon was gone to Hayden's house, so Keaton watched the little boys. Callahan's team won easily and Mom got some jogging in. Mom and Dad went out on a dinner date, Callahan tended for a bit and then had Landon take over ... so all three big boys helped with tending today. The boys stayed out late, Landon back to Hayden's and the others out front playing "Capture the Flag" Landon: Colton's Clothes, Wii Fit, Tending Callahan: Flowers, Garbages, Journal, Wii Fit, BG, Tending, Read Keaton: Dishwasher, Tending, BG

0815 (Sunday) Landon was up and at it early. Mom and Dad could hear the weights and treadmill while they were still in bed. We had Sunday Circles for breakfast, then went to church. After church Landon and Dad had home teaching. The little boys were really good playing legos ALL day. Callahan has been wanting an Ipod Touch SO bad. We tried bidding on some on Ebay today but didn't ever win. Daddy made yummy BBQ roast beef and marinated chicken, plus mashed potatoes. The boys start school tomorrow!

0816 (Monday) First day of SCHOOL! Landon and Callahan were up and at it early, in fact the three of us all wanted to use the gym downstairs at the same time. We are carpooling with Lavalee's again, as Jacob's mom works at the school and has to go there each morning anyway. She does have to leave early though. Mom was driving today, to take Cooper to his first grade orientation, but Callahan still hopped a ride with the carpool. First grade will be a change for Cooper ... the full school day, the bathroom is down the hall, lunch, and recess on the big playground. Mom and Colton will miss him at home too. After the orientation was done, the two little boys and Mom went to Maceys. They had some good deals on fruit snacks, chips and muffin mixes, so Mom loaded up. Landon helped unload the car. Mom mowed the lawn and Landon took off with friends. In the evening we went over to the Burton's for a dinner. The boys walked on stilts, played soccer and frisbie and buired Colton in the rubber shavings on the playground. Daddy and Landon liked the tutti-frutti ice cream.

0817 (Tuesday) Cooper's first official (loooong) day of school. He said it was long. To keep Colton busy, Mom planned a playdate with cousin Addie. Aiden was there too. The kids got to play for a couple hours at Courtney's house. Then Mom picked up Colton (he was sad to come home to an empty house) and dropped Landon off to do some work around their yard (Clay said he would pay him). Mom went back later to pick Landon up and then went straight to the school to pick up the kids. Callahan's basketball practice got moved from 5:00 to 4:30, so that was a bit of a rush, but we made it. Landon went out with his friends (5 guys) to 5Guys for dinner and stayed out late.

0818 (Wednesday) Mom had to wake up all the elementary school kids, they were all sleeping in this morning. Landon had an ortho appointment during the day, then Mom dropped him and friends off at KOPFC, even though it was raining a little. Callahan had basketball practice. Traffic was really bad trying to get home, so Mom was rushed trying to get Cooper to his soccer practice. There was a HUGE tournament going on there and it started raining ... practice was canceled. Callahan had scouts, and Daddy and Landon prepared for their scout camp tomorrow.

0819 (Thursday) Dad and Landon were off early to their scout camp at Pineview. The other boys got off to school and then Addie came over for a play date. Will wanted to stay too, so he did. The cousins had fun playing together. There was a big rainstorm! After Addie left, Colton went to Reagan's house to play. Mom got a call from the school that Cooper wasn't feeling well, so they went and picked him up. He seemed fine though. The weather turned out nice enough that Callahan did still have his basketball practice at 4:30. Keaton went to a birthday party for Jake Sexton at 5:30, they went to Chuck-E-Cheese. Mom couldn't get back in time to pick up Callahan, so he just went home with Stockton and Mom picked him up later. Mom had ordered an Ipod Touch and it came today. Callahan was super excited about it, but Mom ordered the second generation and it's only a first generation (no external speakers) so ... Hope Landon and Daddy aren't cold and wet up camping!

0820 (Friday) Short day at school for the kids. The boys played with friends after school until around 6:00, when Mom took Callahan to basketball practice and had Keaton tend the two little boys. Hope Daddy and Landon are having fun at Pineview. Mom put up a white board job chart for Cooper and Colton too (but won't record them here).

0821 (Saturday) Soccer games in the morning. Colton's at 8:30 and Cooper's at 9:00. Mom took Colton, and Callahan stayed with Cooper and they got a ride to the game with Shaw's. Colton and Co did really well in their game, got their pictures and trophies. We hurried to Cooper's game, but it had just ended. Cooper got a goal and did well. Callahan had white board practice and then went to a teammate's home to hang out until the game. Callahan and Co won their game, the championship ... 1st place for Summer Season. Daddy and Landon got home from scout camp, and Dad had a derby, and took Keaton as Callahan wasn't home from basketball yet. Everyone was quite tired!

0822 (Sunday) Gray and Landon had talks in church today, so they were a little busy in the morning prepping for that. Mom made Sunday Circles ... we are almost out of our favorite waffle mix. Mom tried to order more but the company said they didn't have any more and weren't sure if they were getting any more ... why do our favorites always get discontinued? At church, Landon's talk actually ended up getting postponed a week, which was actually too bad as Maga, Rex and Olivia came out. They still got to hear Gray and he did great as usual. After church Mom did lots of cooking, finishing up with homemade oreos. Yum.

0826 (Thursday) Landon's first day back to school ... 9th grade. Colton slept in until late, and then went to Addie's house for a playdate. Mom picked him up and then stopped at Landon's school to pick him up ... it was very crowded with cars! Callahan and the little boys went to Shaw's after school, so it was a little quieter in the afternoon. The little boys had a bath and it was an early night for all.

0828 (Saturday) Cooper's birthday! 7 years old. Dad was off early running a 5K ... he took 2nd place. Cooper had a soccer game and team pictures. It was really windy today. Callahan had his team party at the WJ pool and then to the coach's house. We were going to go out to SubZero, but it was really crowded, so we went to Red Robin instead. The air conditioning made it cold and everyone was tired because it was pretty late. Landon: Weed Wacker Callahan:Flowers, BG, Back Seat Driver Keaton: Dishwasher, Groceries, BG

0829 (Sunday) Church ... Landon gave a talk. After church Mom and Cooper worked on his "Star Student" poster. We went up to Maga's for a family party with Daddy's cousins. We sang Happy Birthday to the three birthday boys and ate cake!
