He was pretty excited after that he had been able to take care of Imogen and give Roberta some time to get her house ready for company that evening.
From babysitting, we went home for a quick supper before dropping Kaden off at youth. It was their official "Welcome to Youth" for the Grade 6 students and Kaden didn't want to miss it. We left the church and drove to Kiandra's Jazz Caberet. Unfortunately, they had underestimated the number of people that would be in attendance and so by the time we arrived there were no seats available in the auditorium. The plan was for Conrad to pick up Kezia to take her to soccer because he doesn't get to see her play and for me to stay behind and watch Kiandra but since there really wasn't any room, Kiandra told me I could go too. Since the concert was supposed to be quite long, I thought I would make it back in time to hear her but I missed her by about 5 minutes. She did look beautiful and was happy to not have to wear the traditional band concert for this performance:

Since it was raining (again!) the tournament organizers decided to have an evening of shoot out games instead of playing in the rain. You don't even know how glad I was to not have to do THAT again! Each team picked 5 shooters (Kezia was not among those chosen) and the score was determined by the number of shots that went in. Kezia's team managed to score 4 out of 5 and ended up with a final score of 4-2.
Conrad drove home to eat a late supper and I drove to pick up Kaden who ended up making plans to go to a friend's house for a sleepover...another wasted trip...and so I drove back to pick up Kiandra just as the concert ended. I can't believe the concert was from 7:00 until almost 10:30! That's a LONG concert....next year we'll know to come early and prepare to stay late!
So, I drove home with just one of my children and went to bed shortly after....it's exhausting going here....there....and everywhere. :)
