This morning I was getting the children ready to go take a few snapshots at a county fair a few counties over, but Röbert insisted that we stay home and enjoy the lake out in front of the house. I wasn’t happy about it, but he went so far as to hide the car keys and there is no Über out here in the boondocks, can you believe it? So today was lake day. The kids seemed to enjoy it, but I know they were probably wishing they could have spent the day making photo memories.
Röbert took Hummus for a long paddle in the canoe while Merlin gave me a pedicure. I got to relax in the very comfortable lounge chairs at the end of the dock, and I might have gotten a teeny bit of a tan. Don’t tell my dermatologist!
Starling was so excited to go fishing, until she saw Röbert cleaning the fish afterwards. She spent the rest of the afternoon texting Amber and Alcott.
Unfortunately, by the time it was Merlin’s turn we were all tuckered out. That’s okay, he got a lot of his summer homework done while hanging out on the lovely screened porch. Mr. Williams will be so proud of him when school starts back up.
Röbert had dropped a minnow trap off the end of the dock last night and Merlin did find a little friend in there today. It may be his friend that I most enjoy being around, LOL.
Once a nerd, always a nerd; he immediately sketched the thing and wrote a small report about it. Yikes. We need to get him some cool friends.
Tonight Röb wants to have a campfire. Well, I hope everyone is prepared for a bath afterwards, because I don’t want all that smokey stink inside my house!
