This week was Braniac’s last week of school. Next year he’ll be homeschooled again, as will Mr. Great-heart. We’ll see how it goes.
Anyway, we started out the week with yet another insane Sunday. I’m kinda tired of insane Sunday’s so I think I might just cancel Sunday from here on out. Drastic, I know, but I haven’t had much rest on them anyway lately so… ;D
We went to church but Braniac and I had to leave early to drive to school so he could sing at that church’s service. I thought I was going to miss the whole thing, though, when I saw how late in the service it was. Fortunately, Lutheran’s talk fast so, even though it was Trinity Sunday so the Athenasian Creed had to be said. Fortunately, or not depending on your bent, they broke it up throughout the service so I was able to watch Robby sing and still get back to our church to pick his brothers up from Sunday school.
Later that day we went to a pool party for children’s choir. It was a lot of fun. It’s really amazing how different I felt going this year than last. I still feel a bit awkward around a lot of people, but I was about 1000 times more relaxed.
On Monday we loaded up the recycling box and headed to a place a friend told us about. It was pretty easy to do. I’m sure if I had to go on Saturday it would be a pain, but Monday morning was good. I have to wonder, though, with as much as we had and as little as we got, is it really worth it to dig through the trash of others to get the money?
Thursday the school had a games day for the end of the year. It was so much fun. They usually go to John’s Incredible Pizza but my kids don’t like that place. And, besides, it’s inside. Games day is outside so by default it’s better. 😀
Babycakes went along and had a great time, until I had to come home to take Farmer Boy to work. He screamed all the way from the jumper I pulled him off to the car.
(There were more photos, but, well, there were a lot more. Maybe I’ll get around to posting the rest of them later.)
Today we went to ballet. There is only one week left of the term. The kids were supposed to go to summer intensives, but it doesn’t look like that will happen. Nor will any more ballet lessons for quite some time. This is probably one of the most difficult things for me. I’m trying to keep the kids positive by telling them they can be more involved in children’s choir and even audition for the Christmas show extra parts this year. But even if they don’t cry over leaving ballet, I will. We’ve been there for ten years now. It is going to be a hard break to make.
This occasion calls for some Skye. Found this on tumblr this week.
