Long time no see
Wow, I can't believe it has been a month since I last posted. Should I bore you all with the details? Hmmmm.....
Well, my talent show was April 10th.....there was much excitement. Fun, but I am glad it is over.
Matt and Matthew went to state competitions. I led worship at a women's conference in Harmontown. It was a first for me. Couldn't have done it without my husband's help (Powerpoint, etc.). Moral support as well. (Ok, I tried not to freak out about it, but at some point it happened. Not a complete and total freak out just a little hypertension). The day turned out to be a huge blessing.
Now we are in the days of birthdays and Spring concerts.....band banquets, etc. The boys are taking the MCT starting tomorrow and we are having many discussions about their futures of ACTs, SATs, GREs, etc. I am glad they are kind of psyched now. Jacob says he either wants to be a doctor, dentist of marine biologist. He and Benjamin want to study sharks together. I guess we need to move to the ocean. Sardis Lake isn't going to cut it.
I will be giving Miguel the MCT tomorrow. I have never been an administrator of the MCT. I have only been the person who walks around and tries not to fall asleep....tries not to freak kids out by standing behind them for too long, etc. It is kind of stressful. :) Now I just have to talk forever. Poor Miguel. I know he doesn't want to listen to me for that long, or any at all. To take a scored test in English when you are a native Spanish speaker.....whew!
Tomorrow morning I get to have fun with Breanna and Miguel while the other kids are taking the MCT, then when they finish I will give Miguel his. I do feel sorry for the proctor who will give the MCT in the morning and then turn around and proctor for me in the afternoon. I wonder who that lucky person will be. :/
I hate that we missed seeing Jason and Brandy this weekend. They came to Oxford for the Double Decker thingy and to see family, but we couldn't manage to work it out. We went to Matthew's Jazz festival at school. We love Jazz, so that was a treat. We also got some more things put away at home. I love getting more moved in.
I am not sure who all is coming this weekend. We need to talk to all of our sweet moms. Matt's birthday is Thursday and mine is next Thursday, so this is our month of parties. Mother's Day is soon and then on the 20th we will have our anniversary. I love May.
I can't wait to see mommas. We miss them so much up here.
Not sure if that catches us up, but it is close.
I miss singing around. We need to try to get some things set up for this summer.
