Still recouping. We'll do a slight recap here...
Friday night was Sectional dinner with the team. SO fun!! This year I was in charge of our crafty-make something project. So what did I have them do? One guess? Okay, I know this is surprising, but we did a scrapbook page for the cover of their 05-06 newspaper clippings book! I'm super proud of them this year with achieving goals, being good sports and such, but gosh, the sight of them totally enjoying creating a page just about did me in. We had so much fun eating and laughing and creating. I am going to miss these girls SO much after our season has ended.
Here's the picture of them all showing off their pages.. aren't they talented?
Our hard work paid off and resulted in our ADVANCEMENT TO REGIONALS!! Yeah! It was a very close meet but we ended up finishing 3rd. (The top 3 teams get to move onto Regionals). Last year was the first year in 30-some years (that our school has had gymnastics) that we did not advance to regionals. We vowed never to let that happen again and these girls worked their butts off to make it happen! All the girls did such a good job and we're so extremely proud. This Friday we'll be traveling to Valpo. So fun.
Sunday we had the G3 (G-cubed which stands for "Girls Gone Godly".. they made it up.. isn't that cute!) Spa day. So fun! I talked to them about body image and gave them a little of my eating disorder testimony and then we set them loose in the salon. We did pedicures, body scrubs, facials and ear wax candles to name a few. Has anyone ever done the ear wax candles? So gross but completely cool at the same time! It's so cool to see what gross things come out of your ears. We had a few new faces so I was extremely excited that this group is growing!
What was I not so excited about? That my throat was en feugo for the entire weekend. So I decided to stay home yesterday to fight it and catch up on rest. Guess what I found out? #1, Darin is the cutest, sweetest hubby when I am sick. He called all the time making sure I was doing okay, brought me a movie and babied me all day. #2, Darin does not think that Days of our Lives is a quality show. What?
During one of the Marlana and John segments, he started making fun of them by saying,
"Why doesn't she remember John? Was she in a horrible car wreck which left her in a comma when her sister tried to take her husband..."
I interrupted him by getting the facts straight.
"No, she was kidnapped and placed on this island & Stephano erased her memory. This was after she had a demon in her.. don't worry, they got it out."
He couldn't stop laughing. He said he couldn't have even imagined a story that stupid.. well duh! That's why we watch the show.. for some quality stories that we couldn't even dream up.
I also managed to work up a page (or 3) yesterday. My sister said I shouldn't post them cuz then everyone would know that I scrapped on my sick day. #1, scrapping requires no usage of my en fuego throat. #2, Not a very valid concern coming from a teacher that gets 15 personal days, 15 sick days, 2 weeks at Christmas, Spring Break schedules her prep period around Days of our Lives and doesn't work for 3 months in the summer. Let me scrap in peace with my en fuego throat. Just kidding, just kidding Denise!!! Love you!
