September 12 – Church was wonderful; I conducted the hymns and also played the flute for the special musical number. Ben stayed in nursery the entire time without us!! After church, during Ben’s nap, I sat by the pool in the gorgeous breeze and chatted with a neighbor for two hours while the kids played. Home teachers brought brownies and a copy of Mockingjay (from my friend Jen). Chris made dinner.

September 4 – Gorgeous weather, fun outside. Megan says, “I’m going to say something funny, but I don’t want you to put it on Facebook, or your blog, or videotape it and put it on YouTube.” So I won’t.
September 2 – Both kids back in school. Ben and I ran errands and took a good nap. Swimming in the afternoon, early dinner and bedtime. Christopher flew to Chicago early this morning and will be back late this evening. Ah, the marvels of modern transportation.
September 1 – Gavin refused to go to school and got upset and croupy when I insisted, so I let him stay home. BUT, I unplugged the TV and computer and made him stay in bed just about the whole day. We did go swimming in the afternoon, and I put both boys to bed at 6 p.m. because I was d-o-n-e. Now supervising Megan’s mound of make-up work.
