I am now officially 1 year older (and proud of it!) I have earned every aching muscle, every gray hair (and I have WAY more than I care to see everyday), and every other earned credit that goes with being my age.
My day has been fantastic. I had a great day at school. My wife showed up at the end of the day with cupcakes and a large sprite for me. What a fun and thoughtful thing for her to do. My students loved it. It was a nice break for us. We went outside and enjoyed a cupcake and four-square.
After school I came home, and this might sound funny, and enjoyed cleaning up the yard and taking the air-conditioners out and putting them away. I cleaned up a little of the garden, fixed the gutter, and plugged in the heat tape under the house. It was GREAT!
I came in the house to find my wife making one of my all time favorites- Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches. Y-U-M-M-Y! My parents came and enjoyed dinner with us. We had a leisurely dinner. Afterwards, I got to open gifts (my wife came up with some great gifts. She gets mad at me because I tell I don't ever want anything.) My parents visited for a while longer (we did scripture study and prayer) and then they headed home.
The rest of the evening was spent in chatting with Mrs. E (Elysabeth Eldering) about school and writing, blogging, and buying tickets for Walking With Dinosaurs- The Live Show. We are going Sunday, January 18th. It is going to be SO cool. I am VERY excited. I will working out all the details with my sister about staying at her house and maybe even getting a ride to the event so we don't have to find parking. It's all good.
And now, I am tired and it is bed time. I have student council meeting in the morning at 7:30am. So,
