This past week kind of snuck up on us here in Drosche Land. We were not prepared for the hectic nature of it all. Granted, we should have been somewhat prepared, it was National Lutheran Schools Week so that right there was enough to tip us off to the potential busyness of it. But, we must have been in denial or just unaware of the week that lay ahead.
Mind you, nothing bad happened last week, it's just that we were crazy busy every single day. As I mentioned before, it was National Lutheran Schools Week. This is a time when Lutheran schools across the nation celebrate everything we do and stand for. It typically includes themed days with each day having a different fun dress up option. Monday, the entire lower school, Infants - 4th Grade, tie dyed t-shirts to wear on Thursday. This activity was a ton of fun but definitely an undertaking. Amy ended up also staying later than usual that day so we were both exhausted by the time we got home. Tuesday we brought home some of the tie dyed laundry to finish up, after Amy had spent a good part of the day on her feet rinsing t-shirts. Another late night. Wednesday I had a faculty meeting, yes another late night. Thursday Amy ended up having to stay late also to finish some things and it was my last day of the week so again, quite busy. Friday took the cake though, and thus gets its own paragraph.
On Friday the entire school had Skate Day where all the kids, Kindergarten - 8th Grade spent the day at a roller rink. This is always fun and was Braeden's first time ever roller skating (see pics below). I obviously went as a teacher but also was there as his chaperone. He did very well considering he had never put skates on and he only cried once. Friday night we went to the Rodeo. Amy originally was not planning on going, it was just going to be my parents, the boys, and I since Amy's first doctor (we've since switched. Long story for another post.) said she would likely be on bed rest by this time and shouldn't be doing anything like that. However, my Dad decided he didn't want to go so we cleared it with Amy's doctor and she went. I love the Rodeo and we go at least twice a year. When we found out Reba was going to be at the Rodeo this year we knew we would see her! I love her! It ended up being very cold and very very rainy so the kids only got in one carnival ride. But we had a ton of fun walking around shopping and looking at the animals in the Livestock Show. The Rodeo itself was awesome! But all the fun did make for a super long night.
We spent today recovering and resting at home, exhausted from last week and last night. It was perfect too as the cold and rainy weather continued all day. Luckily next week is Spring Break, well at least for the boys and I. Amy will only be off on Tuesday and Wednesday. But we are hoping it will be an easy week for her with so many people on vacation. Our plans are simple: relaxing at home. Adam is coming down from Nebraska so I'm stoked about that! We also are deciding what our annual Spring Break Project will be! You'll recall that last year we put in the tile flooring. This year we are thinking a little more low-key. We are going to try and redecorate the boys' room. It's something we've been meaning to do for a while and I never got around to it last summer. Stella's room is all done for the most part so the boys deserve their space to be finished.
All in all though, we are hoping for an easy-going Spring Break because that's the kind we need. We shall see how it pans out though, you never know! Tomorrow we are going to take the boys to a sibling class at the hospital and I am so excited about it! I hope to get some cure pictures for this week's Sunday Snapshot! Wish me luck!
All is well, ready for some r&r, in Drosche Land.
