Last Week

 Last week we had STEM club. Katherine was unable to go because the snow the week before had pushed around school obligations.
We went to the community college to their auto department and got to look at cars, see how the industry has evolved with technology, see the gasoline area and the diesel area.
 Friday of last week I took the kids to the library where they were doing a teen event for cupcake wars.
The kids seemed to have had a lot of fun. I went wandering the library looking at cookbooks.
Saturday was BUSY. Peter has most of the pictures and the videos on his phone.
At 7am we we were at the Middle School and got the kids onto the buses and Peter and I followed behind in the car. We drove close to 2 hours to Paoli Peaks and went snow tubing even though it was over 70 degrees! I came out of it with a sunburn. After snow tubing the field trip took us to an indoor water park where Peter and I spent most of the time on the lazy river. Sadly there right at the end Kat took a pretty good tumble and scraped up her elbow and knee pretty bad but she took it like a trooper.
Right after the water park which we left a little early from we drove to a friends house in Indiana to drop off the girls to spend the night then zoomed back on our way to meet some other friends in town to have dinner before we all went to go see Larry the Cable Guy and Jeff Foxworthy.
By time we got out of all that and drove the hour home I was exhausted needless to say!

Sunday rolled around and the ladies had Stitch N Bitch so we met up and I did some more work on the blanket and I'm on the home stretch I think. Afterwards I got to go out to dinner with one of my friends who I haven't been able to see much of lately so that was nice. 

The week wasn't bad but it was stressful with Monday having turned into a snow day and then it was Finals week for Brielle and just things didn't go as smoothly as they might sound above but we made it through and we've got some great memories.
I'll see about posting pictures or something up from the snow tubing if I can steal my husband's phone at some point.

  1. Wow, what a busy week! You always seem to be on the go :) I'm not much of one for winter sports but I think if I could try them in 70 degree weather perhaps I might change my mind. Hope you are having a nice (and maybe relaxing?)week!
