Good morning, it is Tuesday.
Today is the last day of school and work before Winter Break! Even Maren is taking vacation days to match our school schedule! None us us have to report to work or school (after today) until Jan. 4th. By then it will be 2010, Hansen will be 10 years old, and Maren and I will have been married for a day over 19 years! On paper this sounds just great, I am guessing that by the time the 4th finally comes around, we will all be ready for some space and getting back to school and work won't sound so bad...at least for half a day?
The surrounding schools are already on break. It is easy to forget that fact when you live smack in the middle of a huge school system, but Preston learned the hard way last night. His soccer team was scheduled to have practice at an Auburn high school, but as the school was closed for break, there was no one to turn on the lights, so the team hung out in the dark for a few, then called it...no soccer for a couple of weeks either. As much as Preston hates to take time off of soccer, it will be good for him to have a break.
Finally, yesterday was the volleyball match between the CV teachers and the all-star teams from the school. The games were very close at times, and not close at other times. The teachers won! There were 5 of us that played, we all dressed in yellow shirts and blue shorts. The classes sat around the court and there was tons of cheering, especially when the ball would fly into the crowd and hit screaming spectators! Ha ha good times.
Tomorrow's blog should come later than usual as I have no plans to set my alarm clock...oh yeah, I just kind of wake up early everyday...maybe I will just pretend to sleep in late.
See you tomorrow.
