A Day Out

Josh had to put the 18-wheeler in the shop today so we ended up having a surprise day out as we searched for a new truck seat for our pick-up.  It was his belated Father's Day gift.

I recieved a sweet little card and candy bar from a dear friend for my birthday in the mail today.  The kids were excited to see it was a Wonka bar, after reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory together.  Wonka is a big deal around here though my friend had no idea what a sweet gift it really was to send!

We ate lunch in a nice little restuarant in Hemingway, SC.  The food was Delicious!!  We will definitely be eating at that little BBQ place again.

Josh was able to find the perfect seat for $150 at a local junk yard.  It needed a bit of cleaning but was otherwise in great condition.  This was $100 off the original price we were told of $250.  Awesome deal!!

While we waited on Josh to find his seat, we did some reading with the iPad.  We read about how the whale got his throat from Rudyard Kipling and the intro to Grammarland.  We also read a little about the Red Tide from our Curiosity Files and the great Professor Ana Lyze.  It's always fun to get a little extra schoolwork in while you're out and waiting.

We spent the rest of our afternoon at home.  Josh took the old seats out the truck and put the new ones in.  We vacuumed the tons of dirt out too so it's like a clean new machine again!  Plus the new bench fits all six of us, plus has storage so that's pretty awesome!

I also scored a long list of great homeschooling books for the kids only for shipping.  Over 30 books for $20!  I'm so very excited about that.  Can't wait to get those!

Overall, it was a very good day for us.  We enjoyed the time together.  We picked Justain up a day early and he's sweetly tucked into his bunk on the boys' bed.  Tomorrow the kids will get outside to play while Dad and Grumpy work at the shed on brakes and other things.  We're hoping to get some swimming in before the end of the weekend too but we will see.

What are your weekend plans?  Whatever they are, I hope they bring you as much joy as ours often do!  <3
