And it really IS a happy day! The sun is out. I'm home for the weekend. We don't have overlapping schedules. It's a low-stress, high fun kinda weekend *just* around the bend!
And man do I need a low-stress kinda weekend! My mom asked me today where we were staying for an upcoming out of town lacrosse tournament. My answer - um... I haven't even thought about it... Another telling sign that we've had too much going on... it's mid-April and I still have 4 weeks left to figure out what the little guys are going to do this summer. (I do have a fall-back plan... and it's not like they couldn't just stay here... but normally by the time we hit March 1st, our summer plans are locked and loaded.)
I'll get caught up. Eventually!
Here's a fun picture of the little guys at one of Quinn's recent lacrosse games. That electric box has been an interesting fixture for them over the years. (Because they really have grown up at that park. I distinctly remember both of them at that field as infants...) Anyway... this is the first spring that they have been big/strong enough to climb it themselves. And Beckett conquered it first - which caused more than a little bit of sibling rivalry-induced motivation for Zane. LOL
This weekend we have 3 lacrosse games. I think we only have a handful of weekends of lacrosse left this season. It goes so fast. The boys only have something like 24 days of school left. Crazy! Spencer's lacrosse season is over. He starts football spring practice on Monday. He starts preparing for the summer wrestling tournaments basically now. He's also in the thick of trying to finish off his freshman year with pride. Not sure we'll quite get to a happy place with grades in ALL his classes, but he's had a really strong year. (Spanish is kicking his behind!)
I'm home all next week. I WILL NOT travel next week. I don't care who asks! Next trip is May 1-11, back over to Scotland for an MBS module/class and a week in the office with my team. Then it's magically summer. Even the pool will be open when I get back! We almost made it through one of the busiest stretches we've had in a LONG time. Almost time to exhale... just a few more weeks.
Have a great week everyone!
