|This is the only picture I have of the table. Not sure either of |
the salesmen I worked with understood what was going on here.
The new table (and my parents) should roll into my driveway this evening and I can't wait!
2. Our biggest elementary school fundraiser kicked off last week and, after 10 full days of character building and fitness fun, wraps up this afternoon with a school-wide fun run party. I love this program and the way it supports and strengthens the physical, emotional, and mental messages already communicated to our students by teachers and administrators.
Want to know why I support school fundraisers? I wrote this piece last year, after a school's "non-fundraiser fundraiser" went viral.
3. Speaking of schools, on Saturday our elementary school hosted its first service day. Students and parents turned out in droves to help revive our once-thriving butterfly garden and turn the larger space into an outdoor classroom. I couldn't attend because Will had a soccer game in Houston, but Hallie tagged along with friends and had a delightful time pulling weeds, planting flowers and milkweed, spreading soil, and painting rocks. I can't wait to eventually share pictures of the finished product!
4. On Saturday night I sent my sister a picture of me, just before I went out for a friend's birthday, to make sure she thought my shoes worked with my outfit. She texted me back in the affirmative, and to share that she too was going out that night...wearing the exact same outfit.
We're not twins, but we dress like twins and, on occasion, seem to have a twin-like connection!
5. Happiness Highlights:
|A(nother) fabulous visit to our winery, this |
time for a wonderful friend's birthday party.
|Sometimes she's just so happy. (Like when she's freshly showered |
and fed and climbing on the bleachers during Will's soccer practice.)
|This kid replaced his first lightbulb last weekend.|
He can pretty much take care of the house now, right?
Linking up with High Five for Friday here:
