First Full Week Back at School

Today is Friday (praise the Lord), and another week at school finished. It has been a pretty good one, but very busy.
I stayed after a couple of days to get more done. The 4th-6th musical is going to be in less than a month. Our first drama practice is going to be Monday. Wow! I think I am a glutton for punishment by getting so many 4th-6th graders together in the auditorium at one time. The kids are getting excited. Parts are finally given out. I pray that the planning we are doing now will help make the show Feb. 7th much better than the Kindergarten and 1st grade program in December. ( Parents thought it was really cute, but as I said before..... a little chaotic. :) )
Speaking of that, I thought I was up for watching it right before school started back, but I could not handle it. We had to turn it off. It is still too fresh.

Here is the t-shirt I designed for our show. Please tell me if you think it is completely ugly. I chose the colors to go along with the We Haz Jazz cover. (kind of bright colors) Of course the wording will be different, but it will look similar.

This week has been so wild. We were in the halls yesterday for a long time because of the tornadoes in Mississippi and Alabama. It did damage about 3 miles from our school. I don't think we realized that it was so close. Wow!

I met Matt and the kids this afternoon to see "The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything". It was cute. When I finally got to the theater, it was dark. I was glad I found the right family. I saw Matt's glasses and then Jacob's big cheeks and smiley face. The movie was very entertaining. At the end the veggies sing a song called "Rock Monster". It was a take-off of the B52's song "Rock Lobster". I used to listen to the B52's a lot and loved hearing the song. They even had one of the veggies wearing her hair like the B52's lady. They were an incredible band. I also loved the veggies' cover of it. :)

Matthew has gone to Nashville with his buddy Jontyler and Shannon and her family to be with them when they sing for the "Can You Duet" contest. Jontyler and Shannon are so talented. I know they will do great. So sweet to let Matty go along. He just called tonight and said that they were going to make some money. He had brought his guitar to Nashville and he and Jontyler were going to play for money. There you go....

I am excited to get to be at home for most of tomorrow and organize our house. I am in the throw away/give away, etc. phase of life. I want to clean out our clutter. We took about 4 boxes to the Salvation Army a few weeks ago. It was so beautiful to see them go. Felt like a big weight had been lifted off of my shoulders. I can't believe we have kept so much junk. It is so hard for me to get rid of things. Especially things the kids have done. I don't believe we need to keep everything, I just have a tough time deciding what we really want to keep forever and what can go. No one in my family has this particular passion right now (this is an understatement). Matt is great at getting rid of things, but I want to know what we need to keep and find a place for those. He is playing disc golf, I would feel bad asking him to take his weekend to do something just because I am feeling driven about it.
I will take whatever progress I can get. :)

OK, I am falling asleep as I write this. I am probably going to start misspelling words now. Better go to bed. I love my bed and sleep. It is a good thing that God made. Sleep. Ahhhhhhh...........
Have a great weekend.
