Fun with guests

I'm behind posting, because we've been busy. Canuckgirl is a very nice guest, and I'm enjoying her visit.

Yesterday, picking up the wood was an adventure. After the guy told me all the problem we could have carrying it home, I was ready to have Flar do it today, instead. But we managed.

Everything seeemed to take longer than I thought it would. We didn't get to go shopping. But it was fun to go to the track, and I even won one of my bets.

At chess club yesterday, we took a group picture of all the kids and Coach and even me. We also took a number of candid shots of chess club during play. One of the other chess moms took the pictures. She's going to get the pictures to me on a CD, and I'm going to print the best shot(s) for Coach as part of his end-of-year gift.

Dinner was good, and Scrabble was fun, and the day was long.

There's blue parts in the sky today. Should be fun.
