I’m not necessarily dragging but my kids were. They both bemoaned the fact that they had school today and that they couldn’t stay home and be with my parents, who visited over the weekend. Ell had his first flag football practice at 8:30 Saturday morning and my parents got in around 11:30. Soon after, we went out for lunch at Sonny’s. Ell was in kind of a mood; he was very hung up on it being his birthday so he could “do whatever he wanted”. Which, ok, I get it but being a jerk is not included in that. After lunch we gave him his big present: a basketball hoop and my dad and Ash got to work building it. We sojourned back out for dinner (unlike us but it WAS Elliot’s birthday) and that was nice. I was tired that night though and fell asleep pretty early.
On Sunday we made a big breakfast and Ell and Ash ran four miles and we finished putting the basketball hoop together. My mom and I went to Target and we had sandwiches and soon after they left, my boys went down the street to play with friends. It was a good weekend but over too soon.
I’ve already had to run a number of places on campus and I can’t seem to sit down for a moment before being interrupted again. So let’s get on with the music.
This week’s theme is about school, education, or a certain subject.
Here’s one of my favorite funny Jimmy Buffett songs:
and I can’t pass up this theme without posting Van Halen!
