It was the Spring Festival at school today, so we spent the middle of the day there. I volunteered in the craft room, helping kids etc. make fairy crowns and bookmarks, paint pots and decorate Mardi Gras type masks from 1245-145pm. Kaelin performed with her class (dance and instruments) and so she had to "dress up". This is her idea of "dressing up": skirt (only cuz she had to) with shorts underneath, tshirt with sparkly words (that's fancy right?), a hoodie in a color beside navy, black, or red and some Converse sneakers! After the performance, she and Spencer ran around with their friends and played the games and did the big slides and bouncey house and eat a lot of junk (sno cones, cotton candy, pizza) along with some fruit. Spencer and his 7th grade friends even brought a soccer ball and played a pick up game. At least he has passion for that. They play every day at break and lunch.
Spencer spent all day Saturday at a classmate's Bar Mitzvah. He got picked up at 945am and returned home at about 1145pm after a day of ceremony and then dinner and dancing at The Portland Art Museum. Saturday night Kaelin had another dance competition (New York On Stage) at The Oregon Convention Center. Their Spider Dance won a Gold. (whatever that means?). Here group went on at 9pm, and even though we didn't stay for the 1010pm awards, we still got home late!
Ok enough whining...now for some good news and fun stuff!!
Inside were two beautiful pictures to hang and a bunch of matted quotes having to do with "hope"! I love it! Thank you Angie!!!!!
I need to thank my friend Angie in Indiana for sending me a Box of Hope this weekend!!!
I picked up my new glasses on Friday. Here's a photo where you can kind of see them, plus you can see how thick, dark and salt and peppery my hair is coming in! See the cute dragonfly on the sides? Our weekend was a whirlwind. Friday night Dave and the kids and I went to the movies and saw "Iron Man." It was a pretty good movie! A little violent with some shooting and blowing up stuff. But the acting was really good and it's been a long time since we went to a movie where it was hard to find seats together and where everyone clapped at the very end! If you go see it, stay through the credits. There's a suprise at the end! On Saturday, Kaelin had a soccer game, they won 5-1. After the game we declared every Saturday offical "Slurpee Day" (it's Kaelin's favorite treat! Mine too when I was a kid!)
Sunday Classic Soccer tryouts started. Spencer tried out for a team that his friend is on from 11-1230pm (after that crazy day at the Bar Mitzvah and late night...) and then again from 6-730pm. They didn't go so well and he hasn't made the team yet. He can try again on Monday night from 730-9pm if he wants, but not sure he will. He's kind of lacking passion and confidence at this point. He's really been lost the last few years. Not sure if it's the adolescent thing and/or the whole situation with our battle with cancer. He's just lost interest in everything lately. Doesn't help that he hasn't been feeling well either.
In between soccer and the Spring Fest, we hit the book store (the new Manga is out! Naruto #29!) and we took Simba to the doggie park for a serious romp!
Now we are all tuckered, beat and tired and Grumpy!!! Stick a fork in us, we're done!!!!
Hope you all had wonderful weekends!!!!
