High Five for Friday (3.29.24)



The Lads won their first round playoff match! My boy earned himself an assist, and played all 80 minutes of the game - he declared it one of his best performances on the field.

We go again tonight at HOME! Kick off is at 7pm at Tiger Stadium - message me if you'd like more information, and if you're local, join us in the stands to cheer for our Lads!


On both Saturday afternoon and Wednesday evening, Hallie and her Ballet Brazos friends performed Carnival of the Animals for young audiences at the College Station and Bryan libraries. This is such a cute and quirky show/story, and it was fun for our dancers to get to bring it to the "stage" once more - especially for such enthusiastic little kids - before putting it to bed for the season.

After Carnival of the Animals on Saturday, Hallie attended our dance studio's annual awards ceremony to watch one of her besties win an award (surprise, Kara! 😂) and then we gathered at Bahama Bucks to celebrate Kara's birthday. 


Meanwhile on Saturday, Will was playing in a high school chess tournament. After five rounds (the length of the tournament) and a pretty epic comeback by the team as a whole, Will's team and another team were tied for first place. The tournament organizer decided that the tournament champion would be determined by a five-minute blitz game between one player from Will's team and one player from the other team. Will was selected as his team's representative...and he got the job done, bringing home the first place trophy!


Hallie's spring choir concert - a "dress rehearsal," if you will, for their upcoming UIL Concert and Sight Reading Competition - went well. Hallie's had mixed emotions about choir this year, but she just decided, after going back and forth a few times, that she enjoys singing enough to stay in choir next year.


Last summer I told Tom that for our 20th anniversary, I'd like a duplicate of my wedding band for the other side of my engagement ring. (Most of the time he prefers that I just tell him what I'd like for gifts - this works best for us because I receive something I love and he doesn't have to shop.) Over winter break and just ahead of our January anniversary, we visited the jeweler from which Tom bought my rings decades ago - Borsheims in Omaha, NE - to inquire about our options. As it turns out, my line of rings isn't made anymore, so we had them custom make a ring to match (and fix a few prongs on my existing rings). This last week I finally got my engagement and wedding rings back, along with my new ring - I love them! 

I tried really hard to take a good picture
of my hand and the ring. I didn't succeed. 😂

Happy weekend, friends!
