Mercy Me and Other Random Somethings
We just bought tickets to the Mercy Me concert that will be in our area soon! The twins are so excited because they have never been to a concert before! It will be a nice little treat for us--we are going with a few other families from church! I can hardly wait... I could pass on Audio Adrenaline, who is travelling with them, but Aaron Shust is a favorite of mine and I can't wait to hear him! In other riveting news, we had our interview with the elementary principal today. A and M sat there so politely and the only things they ever said were, "Yes, Ma'am" and "No, Ma'am " (We're from the south, we do that! I remember when we lived in Washington state that my children were the ONLY ones who had been trained to do that. I certainly wasn't trained to say Ma'am and Sir. One time, I said "yes, sir" to my dad and he thought I was being a smart alek! Isn't that funny? I wasn't being a smart alek at all). Was that the most words you have ever seen in parentheses before? Anyway, the interview was fine--kind of non-essential if you ask me, but the kids did enjoy hearing about their schedule --you know--lunch, recess, etc. And speaking of educational things, I just finished re-reading The Scarlet Thread by Francine Rivers. If you haven't read any of her books, I highly recommend them. I practically never re-read books--this is the second one EVER --besides the Bible. So, I enjoyed it again--and would probably read it yet again. I just started a book my friend gave me called Middlemarch. It is a hugely thick book with lots of big words and the first few pages have been hard to get into. But, to tell the truth, my hubby wasn't exactly letting me concentrate on it! My policy is to give it 50 pages--if it's not interesting to me by then, it's not worth reading! Have a great Tuesday everyone! Enjoy your spring!
