Settling back into a regular routine has been delightful. There's just something good about being back in your own bed and being able to make your own breakfast. I can only endure continental 'eggs' for so many days.
The basketball trip was a huge success....everyone who went (60+ parents, coaches and athletes) seemed to have a great time. It's always fun to get to know the other parents in such a unique setting....you learn a lot about other people when you're schlepping from court to court and cheering your brains out until 11:30 at night. It's quite the bonding time.
Both Varsity teams competed hard in their brackets. The girls took second place and the boys placed third. It was a week of perservering and learning to dig down deep. (for the adults as well as the athletes) I'm so proud of all the kids, they displayed such character and handled the grueling days and nights extremely well.
Thanks for all the well wishes on my thumb ...I survived the week without knitting a stitch. It's probably a good thing I didn't take any knitting, considering the lack of sleep that occurred, knitting may have proved quite dangerous. My thumb is feeling better and now that it's baseball season, I'll have plenty of knitting time at the ball field!
I've got the laundry almost caught up and we haven't eaten our meals off of a tray in three days... It's so true - there's no place like home!
