Monday: Miss O received the Presidential Academic Award tonight at the school board meeting. Way to go Miss O and her awesome friends!
Friday: Today was Miss O's field trip to the state capitol, and Ben went along as one of the parent helpers. They had a fun day seeing the state history museum and touring the capitol.
Saturday: Today is Miss E's birthday (yes Miss O's and Miss E's birthdays are only 1 week apart) and she turned 9! She is also showing off her cake that she decorated with Dad. She decided she liked her sister's idea of the bowling ball cake, so she did the same thing :) Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? She also had a friend party, and we also were taking the friends bowling, but for some reason (and I did call and check before hand) the bowling alley was closed when we arrived--ugh! I had 5 9-year-old girls to entertain for 2 hours, and my plans fell through! So we did some quick improvising and went to the church to play dodge ball, then back to our house for pizza, presents and jumping on the trampoline. Luckily Miss E didn't seem to disappointed, and the girls had fun, but I was so ready for bed when all the girls were gone! Note to self: no more bowling parties!!
Hope you all had good weeks! School is quickly coming to a close here--8 days left! Oh, my!
