Matt took the little girls apple picking, only they weren't actually able to pick apples because the orchard was covered in poison ivy, and even though we'd called ahead, they hadn't told us to wear long pants or tall socks. Oh well. Best laid plans.
I stayed home to take Addie to Jodie's for activity days. They are prepping for their recognition night and they were there to paint their female scripture hero's. Addie chose Abish. I guess she got frustrated with her painting and decided to take a break until next time. I think she did awesome! Emily is going to clean up some of the lines for her and they'll do another painting night. Addie and I had a long talk after, and she and I both felt better.
We sang happy birthday and had cake, then there was time for a little bit more swimming. It was great, a cool'er summer night, good food and fun friends, and best of all, happy kids. A good Saturday.
