Random Round-Up 07-27
On Monday, I went fishing with the kids. Or rather we went to the river and fed the fish one worm at a time. Yesterday was the swimming pool. Today, I am blogging because a bout of insomnia (missing my dad) has exhausted me and I no longer care if the children develop square eyes from staring at the Electronic Babysitter (aka TV).
