The Man! protecting the neck from sunburn

We've been home a week now and we are getting a routine down. The kids wake up around 8am, we feed them a bottle, then breakfast about 30 minutes later, then a snack around 10:30 or 11am, then lunch around noon, then the little kids take a nap and the adults catch up on dishes or a nap if we're lucky. The kids wake up around 1:30-2pm, then we play inside some more, feed them an afternoon snack then dinner around 6pm. Around 6:30pm we can go outside and swimming might be in the plan if it cools down some outside. Around 7pm some shade is created by the house or the sun is down far enough to go outside. We set up a small pool on the driveway and let the kids play in the water. We also had watermelon the other day which was a nice treat. The trampoline has been a fun place to play also. Father's day arrived swiftly. At home I got an electric adjustable wrench that automatically adjusts to the size you need. It will be super handy the next time I move the dog pen and its 15 panels in the heat! At church they gave all the Fathers half pints of blue bell ice cream with a spoon.
