We got home from our trip Sunday night and the kids had the next week out of school. It is always a challenge to keep them productively busy. They are happy to sit and watch season after season of Monk. Unfortunately, I think Monk's OCD is somehow being taught to my kids. Whenever Josh and I walk together he has to be on the same foot as me. I try to mess him up by skipping a beat but then he just skips and then we look like we are kind of dancing down the path. It's weird. Just the other day Kelly was touching every fence post as we walked past it. I think it's time to come home and get busy.
Thursday the kids and I went to Murten Lake and had a picnic. It is just a short thirty minute train ride. The sun was shining and it was beautiful. I just felt sorry for all the people around us that were hoping for a quiet afternoon at the lake and had to listen to my kids wrestling, having water fights, and being obnoxious.
