The girls didn't end up sleeping outside the other night, but its grandma's fault. I went out to check on them and it was so hot and humid I made them come inside. They might try it tonight if its cooler.
Wayne was the only one that got to go down the master blaster yesterday. You had to be so tall to go and the others were an inch or two too short.

Mom and Dads wanted to see how tall the slide was the kids had to go down. Here is a photo. They also had to climb all those steps carrying the plastic sled that weighed around 20lbs. Julie was smart. She would carry hers till she saw a teenage boy coming up the steps and set hers down making the boy feel sorry for her and carry it. Today its raining so I was brave or crazy and took 6 kids with me to walmart along with my elderly neighbor Fran. Now the boys are playing video games and the girls are outside playing on the porch. I am doing the never ending laundry. Wayne goes home tomorrow. Will goes home Friday, Quintin and Gabby go home Saturday or Sunday. Zack and Julie are here for a month. Kristine, Raigun, Woody, Hope, and Justin will be coming sometime next month for a visit. Wayne wants to come back when Woody is here as they are the same age. Don't think I will have to worry about being lonely this summer. Time to fold some clothes so have a great day and count those blessings. They really are blessings in each day.

Shame! Your Julie as learned the lesson of using "the helpless female card:. I have spent my life trying to tell girls they need to shoulder their own load in life. men are not all that dependable. . . . .I guess that explain a lot about why I an single and ended up being a single father. I only seem to like women so independent they don't need the likes of me.
