Today was a simply gorgeous day! I thought I would be able to sleep in as I was low on rest this week, but I woke up early, answered a few text messages, started worrying about Sarah getting ready for play practice, and next thing you know, I was fully awake.
Sarah’s carpool ride fell through, so Tim was gracious and took Sarah to her play practice while I went for a prayer walk by the water w/Kirstin.
Seriously, I think we live in one of the prettiest places on earth! If spring is this beautiful, I can’t imagine what kind of a summer we are going to have. I think Sarah and I should buy some hanging flower baskets tomorrow for the front porch. Something pink and purple and white that says SPRING all over it!
David and Sarah both had long play rehearsals today. Their plays open next week (can you say “open” if it’s just one weekend?). David is playing Lysander in a Midsummer Night’s Dream and Sarah has two small parts in Alice in Wonderland. Our homeschool co-op has a fantastic drama department for both the younger students (Limelight) and the older ones (Center Stage). The two directors are good friends and have worked together for years. This is David’s first year in Center Stage – what a beginning, Shakespeare right off the bat! He’ll do great. I can’t wait to see both productions next weekend.
The rest of the day was spent accordingly:
Surprising David with a cell phone (Tim bought me a new phone as an early Mother’s Day present so David gets my old one)
Taking apart/destroying the side deck (rotting wood w/old and broken hot tub)
Trying to back up old phone
Trying to sync new phone
Copying a gazillion pictures and other files onto the computer from old phone
Activating new phone
(It really shouldn’t take so long to start up a new phone. I guess the more complex the technology, the more complicated the process.)
Sweet chat with Rachel, my beautiful college girl, who will be home in less than a MONTH!!
Helping edit a math project
Reviewing French w/David for a chapter test
Laundry and dishes (always)
A long Skype chat with Joshua, who may or may not come home this summer.
Tim was supposed to blog tonight, but he was too sleepy and left me to ramble here cheerfully. Always glad to oblige. David posed for a last minute picture for me.
