I know I say it just about every week, but I can't believe we are 44 weeks into 2011 already. Crazy. This week I spent a ton of time with the kids (or rather, attending events for the kids while they spent time with various chaperons - #winning!)
Came home for lunch. Stop staring at me!
We attended fall sports awards night. Our high school has (I'm thinking) around 3500 students. 230ish received varsity letters tonight. 22 of them were freshman - including my girl (she lettered in diving). Proud mama for sure!
I was less than thrilled by the 30 mph winds and freezing rain that forced
ok wussed me into running on the treadmill. I should've run outside. It was HOT in there but I loved my YMX by Yellowman jersey I won from Shrinkingjeans (it was too hot for the awesome armwarmers they also sent)!
We headed down to Indianapolis where on the way I rediscovered my love of wind farms.
The kids competed with the Grandville High School Marching Band at BOA Nationals. In 2 weeks they've gotten to march in 2 NFL stadiums. Last weekend it was Ford Field. This week: Lucas Oil Stadium, home of the Indianapolis Colts and the 2012 Superbowl! They put on a spectacular show (probably their best of the season), but sadly, they did not advance to the semi-final round and the 2010 season ended for them tonight.
As a weekend bonus, I got to hang out with a few of my favorite people - Kirsten, Jamie and Ali :) We enjoyed dinner, drinks and hilarious conversation.
On the way home, Mike suggested we stop at the new Greenbush Brewery in Sawyer. I can't say I was disappointed - yum!
Today, God reminded me of His love on many occasions. The sunset He provided was spectacular. (These are unfiltered iPhone 4s shots - and I'm not even that great a photographer.)
I hope and pray the sunset on your week was just as breathtaking. Much love. B
