Somebody's NINE!

Yesterday was my oldest son's birthday. What a great day it was.

Of course, the whole day wasn't a party. I was up and going by 7am and helping my dad finish cleaning out one of the storage units they had into the other so they don't have two units. I thought for sure that it would take several hours, but surprisingly enough it only took about 1 hour.

Since I still had lots of energy (ha, ha) I decided it was clean the van day. Once a year we deep clean our car. We loaded up and went down to the car wash to wash and vacuum the van. We returned home and I washed the windows (inside) and Armour All-ed the interior. YEA! We have a clean van.

After showering and a few hours of relaxing, we started getting ready for dinner. My son chose to have a BBQ for his b-day dinner. We had steak, hotdogs, hamburgers, and chicken. My brother came with his wife and two of their children and my parents also came. It was a great time and it was nice to visit and celebrate having my son apart of our lives.

Church today was okay. My morning meetings seem like such a waste of time. I don't know any more. Anyways, tomorrow I am heading back to the school to get the first few days planned out. Since my college classes start the same day as school I have to have at least the first two days completely planned out and ready to go. I love the first week of school, what with everyone getting back into the routine and teaching expectations and such. Should be an adventure.

Well, back to the family.

  1. Well happy belated b-day oldest child of Mr. Hughes - lol. I will send something soon for your special day.

    Deep cleaning - sounds like soul washing and we all need to do that occasionally. I need to do something with my car and hurry up and get a van.

    Don't forget I have a surprise for you and I need to get it in the mail now so you can have it for school - it will supplement the writing workshop class so be on the lookout.

    I can't wait to meet your wonderful class of readers and writers this year - chat soon - E :)
