* I rounded up the kids when they were done with their schoolwork and we spent the last bit of the morning running errands. Wal*Mart for a lamp for Madeline and headphones for everyone; the bank for me to deposit checks; then Panera, for lemonades and bagels to take to the park.
* The kids played at Signal Hill Park for an hour; on our way there, we passed Matthew on his motorcycle on his way out to a tag. He met us later at the park for lemonade.
* We watched Avatar. Marcus pointed out plot holes. Rebecca and Madeline were totally suckered in.
