A pretty emotional week for me. Having a senior is hard let me tell you. It seems like I cry left and right with the words, "this is her last. . . " Oh my. But things are good--busy and good. Cross country and band are wrapping up. Fall activities are winding down and basketball starts for Miss E this week. She had her last cross country meet Thursday, had Friday off and started basketball practice bright and early this morning at 6:30. Oh my. Mr J has strep throat. Ugh. So if we can get through that without sharing with the whole family that will be good! Wish us luck! Here is a look at our week. . .
Sunday Miss A, her friend and I flew back from our BYU college visit. Spent lots of hours in different airports. The girls had got these "BYU brownies" which are basically chocolate mint brownies, and they are divine. They decided to eat them at 5 a.m. Sunday morning before we got on the plane. Yummy breakfast!
Monday nights are school board meetings for me. This is the awesome school board I am serving on for the next 4 years minus one other gentlemen who couldn't be there.
Youth activity night we decorated pumpkins to share with girls who couldn't be with us. Lots of fun!
Miss E's last cross country race of the season. Love this shot, I got Miss A and Miss O cheering her on and Ben watching her too. Lots of support there for this girl. So proud of her hard work in this sport this year!
And this was where I lost it this week--Miss A's last cross country race. As she came in the last stretch I just cried. So very proud of my girl! All League honors all 4 years in cross country! Way to go Miss A!!!! I will miss cheering you on next year!
Our Town's big celebration was this weekend. Miss A singing The National Anthem with her choir group to get things started.
And of course there is the band in the parade. Love this shot because I got Miss A in front and Miss O behind her. My mellophone players. Love this band and so love these girls and how hard they work!
Come back next week and hear about how I cry at the last football game (senior's parents night, hello) and last marching band parade and performance. Man, I need to just have a tissue box attached to my hip this year. . . have a good one!
