Good morning, it is Saturday.
Yesterday was a good day. First we stopped by the dollar store to buy a few birthday gifts for Preston's friends. His idea of the perfect birthday present to buy for a peer is: one silly card, ten dollars, and two huge packs of candy. I like it, and can afford it. Preston had two parties yesterday and it is possible that both the birthday kids received similar birthday gifts. Today Hansen has a party to attend, I will be curious to see if he follows exactly in his brother's footsteps in birthday buying.
After dropping Preston off, it was over to Grass Lake to check out the projected class lists for the kids. These things are always subject to change, but the schools do their best to get it right the first time. We are very happy with the teachers that both Hansen and Lillie have for this year. Both have teachers that we have had in the past (Hansen has one of Preston's past teachers and Lillie has one of Hansen's past teachers) and we couldn't be happier. It should be a great school year!
So, as we like to do, we headed over to Sheri's and celebrated with food and pie! Sure, pie is food, but it is worthy of a special classification. It was Hansen's turn to choose the pie, so after lots of deliberation, plenty of angst, and getting input from folks outside the family...Hansen chose Cherry Pie. And it is delicious!
I had to take a picture of the artwork across from our table. It is so cool how even the artwork gets into the selling spirit at Sheri's.
See you tomorrow.
