On Monday we continued a fairly busy schedule. We slept in a bit in the morning. Meg went with Clare and Haewon to get their haircut. Unfortunately they ran out of time to get Meg’s hair cut, but they treated her to a nail painting instead. Then we met Phil and Betty for lunch at the Schoolhouse in Olde Town Arvada. Clare and I tried the impossible burger, which is new since we moved to Germany. We were both not that impressed (it seemed fairly dry), but we are open to the possibility that it simply was not prepared well. Afterwards we went to Scrumptious for ice cream. Their portions are so big compared to what we are now used to from Germany that we could not finish it, though it was quite tasty. They still have the pig in front of the store, and continue to repaint it frequently. We picked up some taco seasoning at our favorite spice store, Penzey’s.
After a brief time of relaxing back at the house, it was time to leave for the back to school barbecue at Van Arsdale. We all had a great time catching up with old friends and teachers (but forgot to take pictures). Spencer then had another football practice, and soon thereafter it was time for bed.
