Wii and More
I was so excited today to finally find a Wii at Wally World--I was even more excited when I found out it came with the game Wii Sports. I decided a few weeks ago that I wanted one for our family, but Wal*mart was always sold out when I got there. Today, they had received 12, and had sold 6 by the time I got there at noon. Those things are hot. I'm not sure when we will get ours set up--no one in the family even knows I got it yet--because this is such a busy week and the weekend is packed to the gills...
Friday night, the twins will be performing in the Elementary musical at school. M. is especially excited because she has a solo part. She's a "Rumor Weed", and I know she will be wearing a green cowboy hat and dancing--but that's about all I know. She has kept her practicing very private--I am looking forward to it. She's quite the drama queen and can't wait to be the center of attention! A. pretty much just suffers through stuff that puts him on the stage--he only likes attention that he dictates--does that make sense??? He's very happy to not have any solos--M. could not understand why he didn't try out! They are so opposite.
Saturday morning will find us out nice and early helping to deliver phone books to every household within our city limits. It's quite a job--and one we've been doing every year for four years--and is a great fundraiser for our Teen Bible Quiz group from church. The money raised will go towards their mission trip to Milwaukee this summer. The kids will have to pay very little of their own money because of this fundraiser.
Saturday afternoon, A. and M. have Upwards basketball. I have GOT to remember to bring my camera for that--I have forgotten it at every single other game this year. For shame. M.'s fractured finger is doing fine, and she was so glad to be back playing last week after a week off for Bible Quiz and her finger, and one off for pink eye.
Saturday evening, we will have our 6th Annual Oscar night at our church. That is always such a fun time for our church family. We will have great food, funny entertainment, and a time of giving out awards to some very deserving people. In the past, I have always dressed pretty formally--B.has always been the MC and worn a tux so I thought I should dress up. B. opted out of MCing this year (due to his school work), so I think I will take it down a notch--no shopping for me--well, not until Sunday...
After church on Sunday, I am taking K. out of town to shop for a dress to wear to the Junior/Senior Banquet at school. She was asked to go a couple weeks ago and is looking forward to going--as friends. She has looked for a dress here in our small town, but she hasn't been able to find anything. We have to get one quick so that we have time to have it altered. Maybe we can sneak in a visit to Star*bucks while we're out of town. Time alone with my teenage daughter--and a trip to Star*bucks--definitely something to look forward to.
