We've had a pretty busy start to the year as far as kid activities, and I'm hoping some of this kind of settles down because I'd like to have a weekend free again. I don't understand these families who have kids in things that require them to be at a game or competition, or traveling, or whatever huge chunks of the year. This is nuts. It's absolutely nuts.
But alas, here's what's been happening.
First up, Jackson had his Blue & Gold Banquet for Boy Scouts. Last year was his first one and all I remembered was how disorganized it was but most importantly, how unnecessarily long it was. With that in mind, we decided that I would take him while Matt, Olivia, and Penelope would just stay home. It didn't seem to make a difference to Jackson either way. It was a cowboy theme so he got to wear his cowboy hat with his uniform, so he was pretty pleased with that.
So then the next thing we had coming up was the Lake Superior Youth Choir for Olivia. She was chosen (and I say this as if it was a big deal, but it's not really because every fourth grader from her school was, but not everyone turned in their form on time) to participate in a one day singing camp and it would end with a concert of sorts for us to all come see.
The morning of Olivia's singing thing, Jackson (and Matt) were volunteering at the Boy Scout pancake breakfast event. We bought tickets last year and ended up not going because I didn't feel well.
So that's a bit of what we've been doing which explains my slack in blogging. Tomorrow I will have even more cool kid pictures I've been hoarding.
