So life is continuing to happen, as it tends to do. I sorta thought I would all of a sudden have ample blogging time after class wrapped up, but turns out we are still fairly insane around these parts. You all know how I like to use my number of nights per week cooking as a measure for our busy lives, well last week we went 0-7. You win some, you lose some. (Are you all getting tired of hearing of my success/failures at cooking dinner yet?) Anyway, I feel like I have several topics floating around that needs some blogging closure, but I am totally aware that if I don't get them down soon they will all go into that abyss of blog posts that never were. So, in no particular order, here is a list of what's been happening according to my cell phone pictures.
This group of boys and their coaches are something special, and we know enough to know we should enjoy it while it lasts because teams like this don't come around often. This team will get a big post in the next couple of weeks, but for now I will just say this is where we are spending a lot of our extra time and energy.
3. Field Day
The school isn't into giving participation ribbons, so you only take home a ribbon if you get first place. That's pretty tough to do, but H was up to the challenge. He got first in the Beach Ball Derby, where he had to run with another kid while holding a beach ball with only their stomachs. I was already gone so I didn't see it happen, but even thinking of it makes me smile.
Splatoon and we are all three completely addicted.
6. Spending time with friends
So that's what's happening around here. More to come soon. You know, when things slow down.
