This Week 2/20/12 - I'm NOT In My Van RIGHT THIS MOMENT

No, that would just be silly and dangerous.  Trying to post while driving?  No, I've never done that.  I've thought about doing it, but have never tried.
Cody's basketball season ended tonight.  They played their last game in Gurnee at a homeschool tournament.  Just in case any of you have a middle school aged boy interested in basketball, and you live in the Chicago-land area, here is the link to the organization Cody plays with, which is the Crestwood Cavalry .
Anywho, no more traveling for sports until next fall.  Phew!  Thankful for that.  Next up for us BASEBALL!  Now, there is a sport I know...or at least a little better than basketball.  All I knew how to do was yell "DEFENSE!!!!!" this season, I got pretty good at it.  Oh and "Stay Aggressive!", can't forget that one.
Now karate, there is something I can help with.  I'm the table mom.  I don't know how I got this duty, I think people think I am in charge or something.  So I sit at the front table and collect the class dues and attendance for Chris's class.  Not a bad gig.
So, this week started off with a few celebrations!  I attended a wonderful bridal shower for Dave's cousin AND  Dave came home from his trip to New York.  We missed him SO much!  We took off on Monday to observe  (Dave had off) for Presidents Day.  Tuesday started our week off with a trip to the land of Plainfield for our co-op.  Wednesday we chilled at home (or as far as I can remember we did) and started preparing for St. Baldricks (which will take place this Saturday), Thursday Cody had his last basketball practice and Friday we traveled to Gurnee for Cody's final basketball game of the season.  Here is our week in review (with actual school work being done documented):

 So, that's been our week.  We were hoping to hit a Jelly Belly factory tour after the basketball game since we were so close to Kenosha, WI., but that didn't happen.  We'll have to plan a field trip up there soon though.  Tomorrow Chris, Cody and Dave will get their heads shaved for St. Baldricks.  That's all I got this week.  Have a great one!


  1. I love their mohawks! Gotta get the boys together more often.

    1. Heck yes! Do either of your boys want colored mohawks...I'm the mom that can make that happen!
