When I asked him what he had, he tried to stuff the foil back into the drawer.

It was the middle school Math Counts competition today for the Metro area. Although he did not place, Jon said it was fun to do math all day. Some kids had on a math shirt that said, "It's as easy as 3.14...( then the next 150 digits)" Jon was coveting that shirt.

From son up to son down Kenny was into everything. It was a pleasure to put him to bed tonight.

Patrick bought this drink at the movies and brought it home. He set it on the counter and then Kenny took it. Kelly removed it from Kenny under the guise he was going to spill it and Patrick then confiscated said Sprite and was seen taking it to his room, alone. The germ count: undetermined. Backwash: undeniable

Kelly lost her ipod in her room so she unloaded most of her room in the hall (Adam's bedroom). She and Mary spent 2 hours organizing not to find it. She came down in tears and I asked if she had changed her sheets because she thought she lost it in bed- yeah, she found it.

Band 3 played a concert last night at the middle school. For the last song, Jon played the chimes. He had more than 101 measures of rest. He said he just took a little nap while waiting. Last year he played a really cool chime piece that he was hammering them through the whole piece. He was chosen for this honor because he plays the piano. I love seeing Megan with her flute, it brings back memories of playing when I was in school.

Mike and I went to the movies after we went to dinner. As we are standing trying to find a movie that is going to start soon I suggest a movie. Mike said, "Is it a chick flick?" I said no. It ended up being one. "To Save a Life" it was pretty good. It was like the "The Love Dare" movie. Hey we saw Avatar 3d last time!

It is essential to get cleaning help from the children at my house. With so many people, dishes pile up in a few minutes and it is an illusion if for one minute to think the laundry is done. So I put all the jobs on slips of paper and let them draw- I don't care if they got the same job they did yesterday. I even took the last job left in the hat, The dreaded kitchen. Within the hour the house, including the bathrooms, was clean (for a few minutes at least.)

Whenever I would put glasses in the 2nd row of the dishwasher they would tilt over and sometimes fall over. I tried different strategies to work around this until tonight I noticed there is a lever to move the spines in different angles. Wow. Now if I could figure out how to wipe down the front I would really be smart.
