Well we didn't end up doing too much, but we did do something so that is a little noteworthy, I guess. I think Friday night we just watched the Olympics. That has been our evenings for the past couple of weeks. It's been really super great watching it all together. If the kids did their reading and homework, then they were free to watch for a while.
Saturday afternoon we went to Dominquez Canyon for a hike. But it was more of a nice, sunny stroll. You have to walk almost 2 miles in to get to the canyon - but we just made it to the bridge, right at the beginning of the canyon, due to a few unanticipated side-trips along the way . . .
We finally made it to the right road and starting walking, only to dead-end at the river. So we had to walk back out and head out a different direction - this time, the right direction. We walked along the railroad track and that was kind of fun for the kids. They found all sorts of railroad spikes - enough for all the kids to have one, and then some.
We made it back to our car and headed back home. I think we were a couple of hours later than Josh and Sarah's parents expected, whoops.
Sunday was the usual: Ben up and out early; church 9-12; blah, blah, blah; walk; blah, blah, blah, Ben home for 2 minutes then out with our boys to home-teach; dinner; and then the final night of Olympics.
Then it was off to bed.
And another Monday rolled around . . .
