It's because we've done NOTHING. Well, not really nothing. We started the day at church, listening to a homerun sermon by Pastor Cross. I then went with Mikayla to the grocery store (for very indulgent goodies as today is the last day to pig out for a while - we've got another wedding coming up and at this rate, there's not a chance to fit into the dress if I don't slow up the indulgence a bit!) - and then we all met up at home. Just the four of us humans and a happy Sydney to have her family home with her.
John and Brayden have already played the Madden pre-game to see who they'd predict, between Cincinnati and Dallas, would win the first pre-season NFL game tonight. Apparently, Brayden, who ran Cincinnati's team on the PS3, kicked butt - so that's the prediction.
Right now, Mikayla is preparing to "take me back to school" - putting together a whole work station so I can be her student. Very cute.
It's been a bean-bag reading, couch-napping, cobbler-eating, uber-relaxing day, and our whole family has treasured the change of pace. There's a change in the air, as I described in a not-so-long-ago post, and pretty soon, these days offering the opportunity of "nothingness" will be a thing of the past. Football, soccer, school, and the Ducks will all be vying for our family's attention. It's not all bad - I think we are all semi-excited for those things, but not so much that we take days like this for granted.
