This week is almost over and I am so glad because I am completely zonked.
Today was Field Day at the girls' school which is my MOST favorite day of the school year. I love it! I had a low-key job this year which was very nice. I took lots of pics, but I don't feel like editing all the other kids out of them so you'll have to trust me that it was a beautiful day and my kids had a blast.
I did take this picture of my VISITOR tag.
Before I left this morning, I put all the stuff for these fajitas in the crockpot. My house smelled amazing when I got home this afternoon, and the fajitas were absolutely delicious. (Thank you, Deena! That recipe is a keeper for sure!)
I've been kinda blah this week. My dad hasn't been doing so great. He's actually feeling some better today, but he's had a rough time lately. I hate being so far away. It really wears on me. On top of that, some friends are moving away, some other friends are dealing with heavy stuff, and as ready as I am for school to be out, I always feel a little sad that the year is coming to a close. I usually cry on the last day of school as much as on the first day. It just means that my kids are one year older, more mature, and more independent...and it makes this mama's heart sad.
But............ KRIS ALLEN--THE ARKANSAS BOY--WINNING AMERICAN IDOL makes me HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My kids were begging me to get on Twitter and Facebook and ask all my central time zone friends who won. So I did. Because we can't stand suspense. We watched til the end of the show, but we certainly watched it with a lot less anxiety! Seriously, I am thrilled for Kris Allen. I have it on good authority from friends who belong to the church where Kris is a worship pastor that he is a great guy. He's definitely made all of Arkansas very proud!
I must sign off now. I've got to get in bed at a decent hour tonight. Tomorrow is another full day, but we only have two more days of school! I think I can, I think I can, I think I can...
