We were busy, as usual! Early Homecoming weekend around here. I may have to do a whole post on the current HS fashion trends - scary!
In sports we had two more football wins so both teams have made the playoffs, yay! This is wonderful! and so opposite from the past 4 years of losing all but 1 or 2 games.
And for baseball I had to cheer for both teams! My middle guy played on the other team because they didnt have enough players. It was rough since he hasn't played baseball in two years and he's younger but he did well enough. Never expected to see that! It was exciting!
Finally, Cinderella made it to the ball, but was definitely pooped! It was nice just to get out =) Tho I was busy, I was able to tackle more editing and read a bunch of campaign flashes, so it was a productive weekend!
And now for your reading enjoyment...
I had to cover a class on one of my planning periods last week - went from Math to English =) On the wall I found these:
