Weekend Highlights




We have had a busy but fun weekend! Friday night while Ryan, Thad, and friends went to the Gopher/Sioux game, Kate had a dance recital. It was called the "Not So Nutcracker." Let me tell you it was so sweet. I can't wait to get the DVD so Kate can see for herself how great it was. Kate does not like to have her picture taken so I did the best I could.
Saturday Ryan had his friend birthday party. Wow...10 boys in our house...not for me. Boys are just a different breed. There was way too much fighting, corralling, demanding, etc for this mom's taste. The theme this year was football. It's no stretch from any of the other years! We played games, had a yummy cake from Cold Stone, and opened presents.
Then last night we had my social studies department Christmas party. It was SO fun, other than missing our buddy Kurt. I can't tell you how many times each day I think about him. We had a picture made of him with a caption that isn't meant to be put out for non-adult viewing. But if you know Gigs, you can guess what it said. I stayed out way past my early-Bonnie bedtime (1am) and even stayed up later than Thad. That is a first.
Ryan and Thad are at Ryan's game. I kept the girls home. It is so cold that I just didn't want to freeze their little fingers and toes.
Have a good week!

Bon-
Your students must be ga-ga over you! Who are the other teachers?

Pretty sure they aren't ga-ga over this old gal! Anyway the only one you would know is Audrey on the left.

ABCDH said...

Okay, I recognize her now, it's been a WHILE!

ABCDH said...

Oh, and who are you calling old???

TBRKO said...

Good point. In the grand scheme of life in my job, I feel old. I keep getting older and I keep getting 15-18 year olds. How does that work?!??!

I can see how you can feel each year when the kids you teach stay the same age.
Also, FYI, I've been straightening my hair for about 10-12 years. It is still curly, but not as much. Hard to say if it's hormonal or just years of "unuse".
