It's been pretty busy around here, which is always what happens at the end of the school year.
Wyatt and Abigail went to a band competition in Austin last week. The 7th grade band got 1's all across the board and also was awarded 'Best in Show' for all of the schools competing. Woohoo! I guess all of that practice paid off. After the competition, the band stopped for pizza and games for the rest of the day. The kids had a great time, but still not enough to change their minds about being in band again next year. I tried.
Kirsten has played in tennis tournaments for the last two weekends. She's played doubles in both tournaments. Unfortunately, she hasn't progressed in these matches. We can't complain, though, because she doesn't have any prior experience in tennis. I'm proud of her for being willing to get out there and play against girls who have been playing for years.
Kirsten is off today at a party for the students that participated in UIL this year. She was really excited about it and looking forward to it.
There's all of the usual running that gets thrown in on top of it too. Fortunately, we are now done with golf practice after school three days a week and tennis practice after school four days a week.
I guess sometimes I get a little more overwhelmed by it all than I realize. For example, yesterday after I picked the kids up from school Addison asked what was wrong with me when I was packing their lunches earlier that morning. Apparently, I gave the two kids that want mustard on their sandwiches the ones with mayonnaise and the two that prefer mayonnaise got mustard. That's not really that big of a deal, right? But, she went on to tell me that the wrapper was still on the slice of cheese on her sandwich. Oops!
Only a few more weeks left......
