It's been a whirlwind week, with little time to post.... and I'm under the gun now, so here come the bullets:
- Noah's last 2 ballgames have been real nail-biters. First, this past Thursday, his team played the undefeated team. This is the team that, while everyone else was not practicing because of rainouts, was getting practice indoors at the skating rink. It was down to the wire, but we beat them, 7-6. Then yesterday we wound up in a tie-breaker with the other team and won that game with a score of 12-11. Go Diamondbacks!
- Emily's 2 days of shadowing went well. She had a great time and used her days as an opportunity to perfect her accents; the first day she was her "shadowee's" cousin from Australia, and the second day she was a "second cousin, twice-removed" from Canada. Such antics. We'll be attending a "New Family Barbecue" at the school in a couple of weeks.
- Mother's Day has been a ball. I woke up to find a box of Godiva chocolates on the kitchen table, along with a couple of home plan books (traditional gifts from hubby to me). Then after the kids got up, they gave me their cards and gifts (more Godiva... chocolate bars). Emily wrote me a poem: "Roses are red, violets are blue; Canadians are awesome, but you're cool, too." From a girl who most days would rather pretend I don't exist.... I"ll take it.
- The 3 younger kids and I are headed out in a few minutes to see "Akeelah and the Bee." A few minutes means as soon as I hit publish and grab my stuff.
Happy Mother's Day to all my mommy friends!
