Busy, Busy!

This week has been crazy busy! We have been running, running, running!

Friday is the Spring fling at school. It is a big, carnival type thing. We have a silent auction every year, which helps to raise money for the classrooms. So I have been working this week on getting the baskets ready for 2 classes. Yes, I only have one child in school, but I still help Sam's teacher from last year. :) I came up with the theme of both baskets and then got things donated, etc. Sam's basket is a Birthday Party Basket. We filled it with everything you need for a party, including a pool party. For Mrs. Tarpley's basket we are doing a Fitness themed basket.

I spent Tuesday getting all the stuff we needed for the baskets, which meant going through everything the other class members sent in, then going shopping for the other items we needed, then going back to school to start putting the basket together. We then had to run and get Sam's allergy shot. He is having bad reactions to them so he is being cut way back for a while. He was so grumpy last night because of it, and seemed tired and grumpy today as well. Poor kiddo. I ended up taking Sam's class basket home to put together, so that is what I did all night. It turned out well and I love our basket. :)

Today I had playgroup at my house, but ended up having to leave everyone here by themselves after an hour so I could go back to school. I subbed for Mrs. Tarpley, and in between class stuff I finished putting her basket all together. We finally left school about 3:20, ran home, picked up Avery and went to the Y. Tonight was $.31 scoop night at Baskin Robbins so Lindsay and I decided to take the kids to that. It ended up taking us about an hour because of the line (which was out the door), getting the ice cream, and having Sam's face painted.

After that we were all starving and it was late so we went to McDonald's. After McD's we had to run to Wal-Mart to get Sam a hat for Hat Day tomorrow.

Tomorrow I will be back at school putting together Mrs. Tarpley's basket.

Friday Avery and I are going to a Gymnastics place with Kinley. Then it will be the Spring Fling. Should be fun, although it is supposed to storm, so who knows how that will go.

Anyway, this is the busiest month of the year for us. Everything seems to happen in May and I am at school all the time. So things will be crazy for a while, so bear with my limited posting time. :)
