Last week we did a little celebrating at our house. Mickey and my mom share a birthday, so we had a combined party for them. Mickey turned 11 on 1/11/11. I thought that was pretty neat. He didn’t ask for much for his birthday, so I was more than happy to get him the cake he wanted: a Carvel ice cream football cake. It was deeeee-licious!I didn’t want my mom to feel left out, so she got her very own coconut cake. Mom turned…well…maybe I shouldn’t announce her age. She looks younger than her age. That’s all I’ll say.Mickey is on the middle school basketball team (he’s the handsome redhead). Thankfully, his team only plays eight games this season. I’m glad. Fifth graders shouldn’t be loaded with extra-curricular activities. The girls love going to the games and cheering him on. Actually, they prefer playing with their friends in the bleachers to watching the game.I’ve been super busy at school. “Busy” doesn’t even begin to describe my workload, but I can’t think of a better word without losing the few brain cells I have left. Re-enrollment for next year starts February 1st. Paperwork, paperwork, paperwork! The planning just never ends. We also have a couple of big events coming up next month that involve a lot of details. I’m thankful that I have a terrific staff to help me!
That’s enough for this update. I’ll check in again when I have time to sit down and catch my breath. Have a great week! 🙂
