How is it already 10 days into February and Valentine’s week? Ay! I am linking up today with Heather, etc. so go here to see more posts.
Friday started off with this text message! Teachers get to go in an hour late and then we adjusted our schedule. It was a good day!
Just so you know, it doesn’t take much to get this in Kentucky! I did slide on a patch of ice in my neighborhood, though. And, just less than a week ago I was sitting on my patio in 60 degree weather!
I always wonder how much to tell about my boys’ lives on this ol’ blog. I feel strongly that their story is theirs to tell and I rarely post anything on social media. But, it is also my story to some degree. Does anyone else struggle with this? My son Mason applied and won a spot to compete for a local college scholarship competition. Friday night was a Kentucky themed dinner for the scholars and their parents. They had past winners speak at the dinner.
He had to go back Saturday at 8:00 a.m. to do an essay, a discussion, and an interview. It snowed a little bit more overnight so the morning was really pretty.
I went to Kroger at 9 a.m.
Around 11, I visited my friend’s boutique to see her new stuff. If you are local, The Prickly Pear is a great little gift and accessory shop.
The parents had to be back at the competition at 2, so hub and I went to Hop Cat to watch part of the UK game before going back to the college. I had a cider called Grand Mimosa and it really tasted like a mimosa.
And, we enjoyed nachos.
Mason had a great day and he thought he did well. Then, Jack went to a party and the other three of us had take out Thai and watched a couple of silly shows.
Sunday as I am writing this I have meal prepped, cleaned, done laundry, and I will be going out to Costco soon. I hate going there but that is where we get dog food, laundry detergent, and stuff like that. There are too many temptations and too many people!
Our students have a four day week and then a four day weekend ahead. I do not, unfortunately. Friday is a teacher work day and Monday is parent teacher conferences.
I hope you had a wonderful weekend! What was your highlight?
