This weekend wasn't as productive as last weekend, but it did go pretty well. I took the kids out Saturday morning with my mother. We first went to Klem's. Henry got a couple small John Deere tractor toys (they've got a great variety there) and Hazel picked up two fish finger puppets. We also got free popcorn, saw lots of dogs and played on the tractors they have for sale there. Afterwards we went to McDonald's for lunch and made a quick stop at a nursery. In the afternoon Henry and I got the groceries and I mowed the lawn. Meg spent time dealing with Hazel's clothes (that job never ends!) and the kids craft supplies.

After church on Sunday Henry and I went to Home Depot to get some supplies and Mothers' Day gifts. In the afternoon all us spent time outside getting some stuff done including trying to right a tree we have that leans a lot. Nonnie arrived in the evening and Meg and I were able to have a quick dinner out! That was definitely needed.

Two funny quotes from the kids:

Henry: Why are we allowed to make cookies if we were being bad?

Hazel: (after a gaseous moment from Henry) Whoah! Big poop (with hand motions).

5 large dollars and 8,000 half dollars had just one 40% silver half (1967).

20,350 pennies produced one hundred forty Wheats, one hundred thirty-three Canadians, seven US dimes, four Euro 2¢, one Irish penny, one Cayman Islands 1¢ and one Panama 1¢. In this batch was on I don't see all that often, the 1920D. I think this is only the third one I've found.

1918(3), 1920D, 1926, 1930, 1936
