We had such a fun weekend with the 10th grade boys...they even slept, a little. We will totally be open to doing it again! Tiger cub really had a good time...especially waking them up by kicking the tarnation out of them. As a matter of fact, they may beg NOT to come back again!
This week was catch up and get ready to slow down week. Catch up on sleep, get ready for Spring Break! Ordinarily on Spring Break, I still make my kids do work, we just have a lighter schedule. Not next week friends...we will be doing NOTHING, cause Momma needs a break! YIPEE!
Yesterday was an exciting day because we had Regional Science Fair. I had four students participating, including my own B.B. The student portion was yesterday morning and we went back last night for the awards ceremony. Our tutorial took home 31 awards! How amazing is that? One boy alone took probably half of those! B.B. took second place in his age division (which he was ecstatic about) and came home $66 richer. Yes, I did say $66...can you tell an engineer came up with the award amounts? They were $44, $66, $99, $153...we were cracking up! Anyway...every single one of my students that went yesterday won something so it was a great night!
In other exciting news, the great state of Louisiana has decided to share some of its convicts with us. Yes, earlier this week, some convicts from LA escaped, they stole a car in Mississippi and were pulled over here. They fled on foot and have been in hiding since. It is quite an unsettling feeling...especially since we live in a wooded area away from the main part of town. I admit...I am not usually the easily scared type, but when I heard, yesterday, that schools near us were on lock down...I was afraid to go home. We just stayed in town until Tigerfan got off work and could go with us! Yesterday afternoon, they found the body of the man they stole the car from so we know they are quite desperate. Needless to say, we had two out of our four kiddos sleeping on our bedroom floor last night. We are praying for our law enforcement folks around here and hoping they are caught soon. For now...no playing outside alone!!!
We are also sending up prayers for everyone in Japan, so sad. I haven't heard from my brother yet but am hoping none of his family was affected.
Looking forward to a girls' lunch tomorrow and a peaceful, quiet, laid back next week! Did I tell you I am excited! Don't forget to check out more Home Sanctuary and have an AWESOME weekend! Blessings! I WILL be around this weekend...eventually!
