Rubber band bracelets is all this girl has talked about lately. They're the new thing, I guess. We looked all over town for the colorful little rubber bands. We found them at Michael's, where she was finally able to buy herself a Rainbow Loom. She hasn't stopped making them since last Saturday.
While we were looking at Hobby Lobby for the Rainbow Loom (they didn't have it) I found myself some paper place mats on sale. I'm in love with them.
Happy mail! Alexi, from Nicaragua, is doing great. He likes school, he's earning good grades and he's looking forward to going to camp. He asks that we would pray for his family, and he loves us very much.
On Saturday the ninth grade football team beat Winona's ninth grade team pretty soundly. One of the bad things about beating them by so much is that Coach Bickle calls running plays (which theoretically doesn't run up the score) and then the quarterback's mom (me) doesn't get to see her son throw passes for touchdowns.
It's been an exciting week for Bon Qui Qui Jr...
1. It's J time!
2. It's chrysalis time!
3. It's transformation time!
It's back to high school time! On Monday night the parents got to walk through their kids' schedules at the high school. Each teacher talked for 15 minutes then the bell rang and we had the same amount of time to get to class as our kids do. I learned a few things:
- I am really impressed with John's ability to stay on top of everything that he is asked to do, both in school and in football, and to get high grades on top of it.
- I really want to take Honors English from Mr. Olson. (I wrote down the books they'll be reading and am totally going to audit the course vicariously through John.)
- In many ways adult life is just a grown up version of high school. Except without the warning bell.
Is it me, or does anyone else feel #3 at times? Don't leave me hanging.
I think I need a weekend.
