scouting event

They did this thing called the Scouting Olympics (or some such thing) today. The kids did track and field type events--hurdling, jumping, sprinting, relay races, etc. Jake killed at the sprints. I slathered myself with SPF 55 sunblock, but still managed to get sunburned--in the part of my hair (no sunblock there)! The sun was pretty bright today, but it was windy so it didn't feel too hot out. The event lasted about 3 hours. Most of the kids seemed to have a great time, so I guess you could call it a success.

Brian had band practice when we got home. I managed to catch a little nap while he was doing that. The nap didn't do anything to help my headache (nor did standing in the sun for 3 hours, for that matter), but hey, a nap's a nap.

I got to work in the garden tonight as well. That was fun, but it seems like someone's always mowing their grass while all of the neighborhood kids are screaming (not helping the headache, either), so my garden time is not usually all that relaxing.
