High Five for Friday (3.6.20)

Hip hip, hooray, Spring Break starts today!

On Saturday morning and before Will's own soccer game, the four Ferri went to see our little buddy Calvin play his first soccer game ever. Four-year-olds soccer games are adorable, and Calvin did a great job; he scored a goal, and perhaps more importantly (at least according to the two defenders in the Ferris family), he played good defense. Will can't wait to pass on all of his soccer wisdom to "the next generation"! 😂

As a child and young teenager I occasionally visited assisted living facilities and nursing homes - with my Girl Scout troop to sing, play games, or even just talk with residents - and while I can recall feeling nervous, I also remember feeling like we were making a difference by bringing a smile to the residents' faces.

On Saturday afternoon, Hallie's dance company performed two pieces at a local assisted living facility. I enjoyed watching them perform, but I also loved watching them (try their best to) socialize with the residents after the performance. Most were a little awkward and unsure of themselves, but I think they still brightened a few days.

On Saturday night, we celebrated two friends' birthdays at one of our favorite spots: Board and Brush. If you live in BCS and haven't tried this fun, artistic (yet surprisingly easy and stress-free) activity, I encourage you to give it a try. I promise you'll be happy with your finished product!

First pair of track spikes!

River! Isn't she precious?! 😍

My dad planted these flowers three years ago, and they've
come back twice now. I love them because they're beautiful
when they bloom, but also because they remind me of him.

Tom cleaned my car's back-up camera and the
clearness of my backwards view is now amazing.

Another day, another orchestra performance. Will's orchestra
competed in two different UIL events on Tuesday, and I felt
both incredibly proud of him and ridiculously lucky to have
the kind of schedule that allowed me to attend both sessions.

Happy weekend, friends!
