An Unexpectedly Good Friday

I had big plans for today. There are only 2 more weeks until our planned last day of school and we still have a little more curriculum to wade through. I wanted to get another few lessons completed, a list of errands run, and some housework complete. But you know what they say about the best-laid plans...

Yesterday, the girls and I scored some free tickets to see Schoolhouse Rock Live - woohoo! It was at the library/children's theater uptown so we took the CD-ROM K had checked out with us to return there. After we had had our fun and returned home, we got a call saying that there was no disk in the case. Oops! Which meant yet another trip all the way uptown today. Can I let you in on a little secret? Promise you won't tell K?

I am so incredibly glad K forgot the disk.

Because as we walked into the library, we saw a group of friends from our CBS group. We ended up going to lunch with them and I had such a blast getting to know these women better. We took over the pizza place's outside patio and just let the kids run wild while we talked about everything under the sun. It was so nice to find two women that I clicked so well with.

Of course, we ended up spending far more time uptown than I had planned and so school today has pretty much been shot, but I don't think we'll have any problems getting school finished on time. We've got 2 weeks and several review kind of tests to finish. Besides, the girls did spend a lot of time doing computer learning games at the library and working with the machines that are currently on display. That's learning, right?
