Daily recap

Today, we relocated to the Bontornos’ house, where Kevin worked while Kelsey, Ashley, and the eight kids explored a park, flew kites, and found a big sundial, then came back to play board games and eat dinner, which ended with some homemade pie courtesy of Kelsey’s baking skills.

It turns out that the top of the playground equipment is the best place to fly a kite.
  • Finding a big sundial

Grayson found this cool sundial where you stand on the current month and your shadow points to the current time.
  • Board games
