Amanda was fighting a summer cold yesterday and was kind of down for the count.  Fortunately, I worked from home and was able to take the kids out pretty early.  We left the house at 4:30 for a fun-filled evening.  First, we went bowling.  Lily got pretty down about it until she had a spare in the 9th frame of the last game.  Noah still beat her, but then again he did have my help.  I had a few doubles through the course of the two games, so that made me happy.

Next, we ate at Chick-Fil-A, which as anyone knows is practically like tithing.  The kids were a little disappointed that they couldn't play in the playground, but we were just getting started.  We next went to Marmalade Skies for yogurt.  Then the fun really began because we went to the library for me to do some research for my thesis.  Overall, that went well though Lily got into some trouble when she punched Noah over a game of tic-tac-toe.  It seems that he was not playing well and was messing up her stats against the computer on my iPod Touch.

We got home around 8:30 and everyone went to bed.  Today I plan a trip up to Wake Forest to use the big library.  Lily may or may not join me.
