Friday is FINALLY here………Actually as a teacher I am really counting the days until the last day of school more than I am Fridays 🙂
This week went fast with having Memorial Day off!
And at our household the last 3 years Memorial Day weekend means baseball tournaments! 🙂 SportTman got to play at our local minor league stadium for a night game as part of the tournament he was in this weekend. That was exciting for him and me, BUT what was truly nice, this was a local tournament and we did not have to travel. It was nice to “be around’ this past weekend!
Strawberries!!!!!!!! I love ’em! So much so, The Inventor and I stopped at an Amish farm EVERY day this week to buy a fresh picked quart of strawberries for $3.25. Needless to say we are all quite addicted to strawberries!
Track and Field Day for my students! It was a steamy and HOT day, but we had a BLAST! My special needs students got to participate in a ton of running and throwing events against 3 other schools. I brought SportTman and 6 other volunteers along for the day. It was a memorable day full of fun and smiles! I apologize for blocking out the student’s face, but with confidentiality I must, but I think you get the idea….my student was booking down the track for the 50 meter dash, with SportTman and another buddy beside him.
A book makes my Fave this week…..yes a book!! I read a book!
I love to read, but just don’t take the time. But I WON a great book from Mocha with Linda a few weeks ago. It’s a riveting read of a 17 year old girl who tries to take her own life by lying across railroad tracks as she hears a train approach. She survives this nightmare, and loses both her legs in the process. The book tells of her struggles with depression and living life with out her legs. BUT it is also a powerful testimony of a life transformed by Christ. Great book!
Life In Spite of Me by Kristen Jane Anderson
Sports Bras…..I know a silly favorite, but I love them! Wish they were invented when I was in high school and playing sports.
