I started off by taking the dogs to the vet for their annual west coast checkup & meds.  Hunter is a 'tubby dog' he's gained 10 lbs in 6 months and Karma has lost 3 lbs in 6 months - so Hunter is on a calorie reduced food and Karma is on a calorie increased food. 

Once home, Spence and I started with the Alchemist, silent reading, history - Copernicus today.  We then continued with spelling, drums, more longitude and latitude in math - which despite what Spence thinks, he's doing well.  He's calculating the new coordinates in his head, which is pretty darned good.

He did his printing and noted his sources in his essay and then we went out to the field to work with Karma.  She was not going to help us out, so we played fetch instead - still training, but she was into that for a good 10 minutes before she lost interest in it.

We packed up then and headed off to Crater Rock to do a bit of outdoor bouldering with Sam & Kelly.  Sam's grandad was there as well (he's here for a visit from the island) and even did some climbing with us.  Kelly also strapped on some shoes and did 2 climbs. 

We decided to leave just after an hour had passed and headed to Marble Slab where Kelly treated the boys to ice cream.  We headed over to her place and the boys got a quick play in before we had to leave for home.

I dropped off Spence and Karma and headed to the climbing gym for a quick climb with James and managed to climb until I couldn't hold onto the wall anymore (about 20 minutes today + the 10 or 15 on the rock earlier - yay!).

We got home and I made Thai Noodle Salad, which Spence likes warm and I like cold.  James wasn't into it tonight, so he made himself some sandwiches.  Now it's time to chill and relax for the rest of tonight.
