Good morning, it is Monday.
Yesterday was a great day. After church (Maren and I taught Sunday School, and Maren did the Children's sermon at church) Maren's parents took the littles to the movies while I took Maren out to lunch and Preston played soccer. Preston did make a goal for a game tied at 1, but that was all it took for them to move on to the quarterfinals. Back to Maren's birthday lunch at Red Robin. She had a free burger coupon so it was a yummy lunch to be sure, then it was a trip down to South Center for her other favorite stores. I don't know the names of the places I had to go, but they all had lots of perfumes and soaps and the like. I did manage to sneak into Sports Authority for a few moments on my own.
In the evening there was a "Save Cedar Valley" rally at the school. Yup, the district has put our local school on the chopping block with it's closure a real possibility come the end of the year. There are a few very vocal PTA folks who have started Facebook pages and the like to save the school. What they have started has become a very big movement, and last night in the pouring rain and gloomy weather there were probably 300 folks rallying to save the school. Will it work? We shall see. I doubt the district will close a different school, but this type of support for CV may help them not close any school. It was a very impressive turn out, amazing really, I was glad to be there.
And to make the evening even longer I attended the annual meeting at the church. It was a long meeting with a bit of discussion on some important issues, but it all ended smoothly and I'm glad I attended.
See you tomorrow.
