One of my highlights from this past week was meeting Nikki, her mom, and her children for supper on Monday night. Nikki and I first connected through our blogs. (You can check out her blog here.) This was the second time Nikki and I have been able to get together in person, and it was fun to meet more of her family on this visit!
We also had one of those “last” moments for our daughter as she navigates her senior year of high school. On Thursday, she worked her last home game with the girls’ volleyball team. She started out as the team manager, and for the last two years has kept the score book. They did make it to the state tournament, so she’ll get one more trip with the team next weekend!
And since I’m rambling, here’s another interesting thing that happened this week. Between my husband and I, I’m normally the more adventurous eater, especially when it comes to trying new, healthy foods. However, on Thursday night, I served what was basically spaghetti sauce over spaghetti squash noodles for supper. It about did me in. Not sure if it was the smell of the squash or the texture or just the idea of this being so against what real spaghetti should taste like, but I don’t plan to ever put that combination in my mouth again. My husband, however, went back for seconds!
Now on to a few good posts I’ve read recently.
Kari reminds us that Mean is Not Funny.
Lori shares 10 Ways to Prepare Your Child for Real Life.
With our temperatures finally cooling off a little here, I’m ready to add a few items to my closet. I’ll keep in mind Kay’s 5 Shopping Mistakes We All Make…And How to Stop.
Even though she directed it toward homeschoolers, I thought Brooke’s list in The Ultimate Homeschoolers Gift Guide had great gift ideas for any kids.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!
