I am sorry I've been neglecting my blog here lately. Life has been incredibly BUSY. Just this week.....
Monday night I had "Personal Choice Awards" at school at 7pm. This is where each teacher is given the opportunity to award a student who they believe deserves to be noticed. We are encouraged to give our award to someone who may not be noticed as often as other students. I always enjoy this evening and seeing the look on the face of the student I selected.
Tuesday, B1 and her 5th grade class along with the 5th grade class in a neighboring town got to sing "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" at the Cardinal game in the 7th inning. They were on the scoreboard too so it was pretty cool! Lots of parents and teachers went along to support the kids. We were pretty cold at the game but had a good time anyway. Hubby and B2 had to miss her softball practice to go to the game.
Wednesday, B2 has gymnastics after school. While B2 was there, B1 and I grabbed some dinner. Then we ran through McD's drive-thru for B2 on the way home to B1's softball practice. I had a meeting at church that B2 attended with me (she played in the kid's room) until Hubby and B1 could pick her up after practice was over.
Thursday was B2's 8th birthday. I picked them both up immediately after school and we went SHOPPING!!! Hubby met us and we all 4 got some shoes. B1 and B2 got some shorts and summer shirts as well. We ate at the food court at the mall (B2's choice for her birthday!) and eventually, we got home about 8:30pm.
Friday, B1 had piano lessons after school. Hubby was umpiring in Highland but got rained out in the 3rd or 4th inning after getting drenched. He met us at the Mexican place for supper. Then we headed back home and to the elementary school for a celebration where B1 got her trophy for this past season of basketball. Then the parents played a game against the kids.
Saturday I did manage to get quite a bit done around the house. B2 went to Brownie camp at 8:15am, Hubby and B1 first went to her softball practice from 12-2 and then conducted B2's softball practice (even though several girls were at Brownie camp) from 2-3:30. Last evening, Hubby and I went to a retirement dinner for a fellow math teacher and friend of mine. We went to Popeye's Chop House in St. Rose, IL. It was yummy!
Today, we went to church, then Wal-Mart to do our weekly shopping, and this afternoon went to Red Lobster to celebrate my mom's birthday, which was yesterday.
Whew! And tomorrow it all starts again..............
