Busy, Busy

Just a quick update on what's going on with us. This week has been a stressful week for me as head of the Hospitality Committee for the kids PTA. We've got our Spring Fling on Friday evening - making plans to feed all those people is tough. With a lot of help I'm sure things will be fine - I'll let you know. Along with that, in case you didn't know, Teacher Appreciation week is next week (so don't forget the teachers in your life). We do a luncheon for our teachers every Christmas & Spring. Yep - that's next Wednesday so I've got all of those preparations going on.

Gracie's field day was today. Sorry, I don't have pictures but I just didn't remember to take the camera. She had a ball - they are so cute out there competing in all of those activities. I'm sure everyone remembers getting scraped knees & hurting hands from tug-of-war. (The ropes have changed since my day. We had real ropes with knots tied in them. These kids today have a nylon woven thing with handles - no wonder kids today aren't as tough as they used to be.)

Brayden will have field day tomorrow. He is so excited & plotting out how to win at each event. He's convinced that if they all turn around & run the other way that they will win at tug-of-war. He might be on to something. We'll see. His baseball team lost their game last night 8-5. He was down about that but gets to play his friends team tomorrow night in a make up game. (Yep, it's the same time I'm supposed to be selling overpriced hot dogs, cotton candy & bbq sandwiches. Does anyone know how I can clone myself for a while to make both events?)

Rob's has had a busy week at work. He did get a call the other day from his boss about the possiblity of another position. It would require a move so we have to think/pray hard about it. I'll let you know how that works out.

Well, I guess that's all that I'll bore you with for now. Hope things are slower for y'all. Leave me a comment with what's going on with you this week. I'm curious.

We DO have a lot in common!
I was the head of our PTA Hospitality Committee for 4 years. It was a lot of fun, but a lot of work and stress on Moi!
We don't have Field Day until later in the month.
Today I managed to pick up Chase from school at 4:30(field trip),take Claire to dance at 4:30 (so she was late), have Claire picked up from dance at 6:15 and taken to the softball field at
6:30. Meanwhile, I was getting Chase ready for his 6:30 baseball game.(which was way across town on a completely different field)I wish I could have cloned myself tonight.
I am exhausted- you?
