Four on Friday...

1. The kiddos had testing today at school, and now we're off to Adventure Golf (and other such things) for the afternoon. Kind of a nice Friday break :)

2. We had unbelievable storms yesterday evening -- the lightning was every few seconds and very intense, and then it poured (and in some places hailed) like crazy for about 30 minutes. Some neighborhoods received feet of water and rain. Then our power went out around 11pm until 2 or so in the morning...fun stuff.

3. I think I ate something rotten a couple days ago (well, I know I did) -- it led to headaches, an icky stomach, and little sleep. But it appears to be out of my system, and my headache (which had become a migraine) left by midnight-ish last night -- yay!

4. It's always strange when we start school and then have a break so quickly -- the kiddos aren't quite sure what to do with themselves. I might have to make Monday a reading day. :)

Happy weekend!

Feet of rain is pretty intense!

kiddo's have a break already? Crazy.

Sorry about your bad reaction to rotten food ;o(

Well, I'm glad the reaction was short-lived -- I was lucky (and stupid for eating it in the first place).

It was an intense storm...of course, the water only piled up in low areas, but the news had a picture of a car which had filled with hail (all the way over the driver's seat). Crazy :)

The kids are off on Monday? Wow, that was fast for a break, but I like your reading day idea :) Glad you're feeling better!

I saw there were crazy storms in CO; glad to hear you weathered it well, for the most part.

Yes, we were fortunate to be in the very edge of it rather than the middle. I think the greatest concern was for the Manitou Springs area, which is where they had two bad fires in the past couple of years -- the burn scars have no protection from flash floods. :(

Hey Robin! I'm still not adjusted to school being back in session and would be doubly confused if Zebu already had time off. School calendar-makers should take parents' brain matter into consideration when setting the schedule.

Hope you guys have a good day reading tomorrow!

I couldn't wait (ha) and did it today...though kiddos got sucked into helping DH stain the deck (yikes). Tomorrow I'm taking them to DPL to get their free books, so that will be fun (of course, we'll do that after our cleaning morning and before football practice, yeesh). What year is Zebu now? Junior?...wow, times flies!

Reading day is a good fit for any day of the week!

Zebu's a senior this year. Double yikes!

Is D a 6th-grader and E in 3rd? (Please don't say middle school!) :)

Yep, D is in 6th and E in 4th...one more year till middle school (thankfully) :)

My first thought was E was in 4th but then my brain went into time warp mode, and I thought NAH.
Time is flying on by.....

Happy year to both of them!

P.S. I hear you on the middle school issue. :)
