As I sit with my cup of frothy morning java, the fragments in my mind float like the froth on the surface of my coffee.
Unlike the froth on my coffee, it’s time to skim off the fragments of the week for Mrs. 4444’s Friday Fragments.
A busy week this was!
Monday and Thursday
~My oldest son had an orchestra concert on Monday. It was a collaboration of all the district schools in this area. They all learn the same pieces, but never practice together, and then come together and perform. Elementary, middle and the high school are all represented. On Thursday evening, the same idea was repeated with band, which my younger son is part of. Both evenings, we went out for DQ afterwards, to celebrate their accomplishments.
~Tuesday is always a busy night with speed skating lessons for my youngest followed by piano lessons for both boys. I can’t wait for speed skating to be over at the end of February so we can get back to our normal schedule.
~I put together a butter braid fundraiser for the 5th grade class at my son’s school, so they could raise funds towards their trip to LEC in May. LEC stands for Laurentian Environmental Center and every year the 5th graders attend for a week in May. It’s like an outdoor classroom and they always have a lot of fun. Wednesday evening I had to be at school for a couple hours so that parents could pick up the butter braids they sold. It’s a substantial fund raiser for the kids as they earn $4.80 off each $12 butter braid sold.
~Speaking of butter braids, I left one of the office staff’s butter braids on her desk, not realizing she’d already left for the day. When she got there in the morning, the pastries had risen! Luckily, the cafeteria cook baked them, so they wouldn’t go to waste, and the staff had butter braids for breakfast! I felt so bad about my screw up, I ordered her new ones and she’ll get them soon to take home and bake when she really wants to.
~My oldest has confirmation class on Wednesday evenings and this week they took a field trip to Luther Seminary. This included a buffet style dinner in the seminary cafeteria, which all the kids thought was great. My son said he enjoyed the evening.
~Finally an evening of rest and relaxation! Or maybe a little shopping at some places I’ve been wanting to check out?
~On Saturday morning, we have to attend a Quiz Bowl competition, which my oldest son is part of at his school. This is new to the school this year and the kids are just getting the hang of it. One of my son’s language arts teachers put the team together. We attended one a couple weeks ago and there’s some tough competition! There’s a broad range of questions so you never know what type of subject you’ll get. It was fun to watch, but I also sat there feeling pretty stupid because I didn’t know a majority of the answers! Talk about real life “Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?” except insert 7th grader!
~Enjoy your weekend! Stop my Half Past Kissin’ Time for some more Friday Fragments.
How was your week? Anything exciting happen?
Thank you, Great Spirit.
