Weekend Roundup...

...gorgeous weather this weekend (and today) -- close to 70!

...we had D's bball celebration on Saturday. The boys had a great time playing hoops (at D's bff's house, which is on two acres) and having a monster snowball fight with the snow which fell Friday evening/night.

...E had a bday party on Sat, as well. She was late, but since it went for 6 hours, we figured missing one wasn't so bad ;) Funny thing: the bday girl is in E's class, but she used to go to a different school. She invited a few girls from each of her 'classes,' and one of the moms from the other group was visiting with A's mom. Anyway, A's mom wanted me to meet her -- and it turns out she's married a to a boy (well, man) I used to be in a musical group with. He has an unusual last name, and when she introduced herself, I was like, "You mean Tony B?" Such a small world...and weird hearing about him from an adult perspective (he's a few years younger than I, and nowadays, that's no big deal, but when you're kids, those years seem like decades sometimes).

...I also went to a book signing for jennifer_d_g -- her book, The Secret of Ferrell Savage, has been out for about a month now, and it's such an awesome middle grade (tween, really). She's a talented writer, and there's so much of her gentle and humorous voice in everything she writes that I know she's going to have tons of very loyal fans. :)

...yesterday, I caught up on a couple of late papers (late from the students rather than me). The kiddos played tennis with their auntie, and then we played a couple rounds of D's favorite game, 7 Wonders.

...today, I'm taking advantage of the amazing weather and going hiking with another mom from school. Should be fun (and very nice).

Happy Monday!

Saw that CO was in the 70's ... crazy. I think it will be August before we see warmth.

You were in a musical group? I am envisioning you as Janet Joplin ;o)

Hehe...actually, I'm not surprised. We typically have pretty mild winters. :)
