Good Things

A surprise visit from Kiandra today when she dropped off a treat for me at lunch:

Leaving my classroom neat and organized and ready for April:
(and leaving the treats from students ready to enjoy when I get back after the break)

Arriving home to see that the fruit we ordered for a fundraiser had arrived:
(I see lots of baking in the future!)

Date night!

and the promise of a sleep in day tomorrow and for the rest of the week!!

1 more day...

After 12 hours at school
(full teaching day + parent teacher interviews + April planning and prep)
I said good night to my classroom:

and I am looking forward to leaving at 4:00 tomorrow and enjoying a restful Spring Break!

Twins Day

It was "Twins/Triplet Day" for Middle School spirit week and Lyndsay and I joined in on their fun:

Thankful Tuesday

I'm thankful for the specialist appointment with another neurologist.
I'm thankful that I could check "no" for each of the long list of symptoms that were on the check in sheet
I'm thankful for friendly nurses who timed me doing hand eye coordination activities:

I'm thankful for no change between last March's MRI and the one in December
I'm thankful for the chance to see my brain scans
I'm thankful for the advice to just keep living life with follow up MRI scans every 6 months unless things change.
I'm thankful.

I'm thankful for updates from my kids
I'm thankful for things being checked off the "do to" list

I'm thankful hockey is over
I'm thankful that there were still tickets left
I'm thankful for the chance to surprise Kaden for his birthday
I'm thankful that the only time the team played here was today
I'm thankful for the time that Conrad and Kaden could spend together
I'm thankful for times that it all works out (even if Kaden could see a win...)

I'm thankful for new plans
I'm thankful for independent and adventurous children
I'm thankful for servant hearts and fearless dreaming
I'm thankful to have the next 5 months to get this Mom's heart ready to let go...again....

First day of Spring!

Thankful for this picture from Conrad this morning....

That time...

I asked Kaden to take a picture and he took a selfie instead...

so I asked him again to take a picture of me and these girls in our (not planned!) matching buns:
(also note our unplanned patterning...striped dress & cardigan, circle scarf, striped dress & cardigan, circle scarf)

and that time I watched....not one:

not two:

but three hockey games:

1 hockey game was my nephew
1 hockey game was the A2 team from Kaden's age group
and the last was a quick peek at the game from the highest division in Kaden's age group
(Kaden knew players at both the last two games)

and also that time I snuck this photo during supper at Subway and only Maddy was ready for the picture:

Today was game three in a best of 5 series in the battle for city champions! Kaden's team has won the first 2 games and today they could take it...

Kaden scored the second goal of the game and the goals kept coming....

They stopped putting the score up after 7 goals but the final score was 9-0.

What a fantastic end to a great year of hockey. They were in first place for almost the whole season and came out with a big sweep to become the city champions!

They got medals:

(is it just me or does Kaden look extra tall in this photo??!)

and a big banner! Great job Warriors!

They played hard and what an end to this season!

And so I hung up my hockey blanket for the last time of the season....

We were hoping for another victory at the fundraising event that Kiandra's youth adult missions team was hosting this evening. They planned a game show trivia night for their upcoming trip to Cambodia. Kiandra helped kick off the event:
 There was also a dessert auction with these awesome desserts:

These were Kiandra's contributions:

The Oreo cheesecake was bid on (and then guarded) by my nephews. They did win it in the end.

Our team (table 19) was "Cheeto Dust" and consisted of me and Conrad, my friend Janice, Kaden and Maddy, Kezia, and my friend Mel and her son Jonah. We thought we were pretty stacked and we did pretty well on the first few rounds but then we fell behind and didn't even place in the top 5. However it was a very fun evening and we had a great time.

It was a very busy and very fun day full of great and awesome things.
