The most disappointing thing about not feeling well is the fact that I was all set to try out my new pair of running shoes. I have been wanting a new pair for a while, and for me even though I want them to fit well, I also want to like how they look. (This is much less important to my husband). So, his constant checking of Sierra Trading Post's website totally paid off. I got this pair of Brooks for just over $50 - regularly over $100. The drawback to them is they are last year's color. I can totally live with that.
Little Sister and my oldest niece are at a painting party for the afternoon. This is the first time either of them has done something like this, and they both get a little nervous about new things. But they seemed fine when I dropped them off and should have a great time.
Here's what the picture they are working on looks like:
Earlier this week we had the K-12 Art Show at the girls' school. It was a nice representation of a lot of great art work.
And on Wednesday this week I was honored with the Global Thinking award for our school district for the month of April. I was very surprised and despite the fact that I don't really like having attention focused on me, was honored.
This coming week we have more track meets and soccer practice. I am loving the forecast for the next seven days - mostly sunny in the upper 60s and lower 70s.
And, even though my calendar is full, I'm hopeful I'll get a few more books read.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
