Elections at Central Valley High School.
These three kids have been friends since the 2nd grade, when we moved here and guess what? All THREE of them won their respective races yesterday.
From left to right, Clark (Activities Coordinator), Jarod (Student Body President) and Kelby (Vice President)
No serious way — what are the chances?
They are going to have such a FUN senior year. We had Jarod and Kelby’s families over last night for banana splits!
Non-stop fun this week. With LOTS and LOTS of what I call “mom”ents — where there seems to be an incessant stream of
“Mom, where’s my …” or
“Mom, why haven’t you …” or
“Mom, when are you …” or
“Mom, I need …” or
“Mom, can you paint my fingernails green?”
Add to this an active and emotional 3 1/2 year old and constant noise from construction and just know that I need a “mom”ent of peace.
Yesterday was Greenacres spirit day, leading up to the big (1st annual) Hoop Hysteria basketball game between rival elementary school teachers. There was about 3 minutes of basketball for every 10 minutes of entertainment, so it ran a little long, but we won both the game and the spirit contest. My boys were beyond excited …
Thinking about hosting a child for two weeks this summer, as part of The Friendly Town Program.

Loved reading about Eric, Nick and Fabian and their entrepreneurial spirit in the Costco magazine. They started a company called Chocomize after one of them found a bag of candy that had melted all together. I love to learn about people who stumble upon FUN ideas. I’ll be order my own customize chocolate bar, as soon as I’m done eating good (this month!)
Can’t stop singing this song, because Trey can’t stop singing this song.
And that’s pretty much it, except Taft hugged Geoff good-bye this morning, bringing on a sudden bout of torticollis (twisted neck.) We spent some time at the chiropractor this morning and are soon headed to the periodontist for a gum graft — poor Taft!
I’m having a little gathering tonight for my friend who is moving to Hawaii, so I’ve got to fit in some prep for that too!
Here’s wishing you RELAXING weekend.
