Is It Just Me, or Does This Week Seem Endless?


This might have something to do with while I'm feeling this.  I hear reports and rumors that much of the country is already experiencing summer-like conditions.  Yeah, not feeling it here.  Friday, the 24th is the last day of school before spring break....let's hope we'll have earned real "spring weather" on that week off.

And, while I'm on the subject....CONGRATULATIONS PHINEAS!  (aka Brayden) We just found out last night that he was accepted again as a "Solid Rock Servant" so that he'll be assigned to assist a counselor during spring break in working with a crew of kiddos who are attending the camp at Harlow that week.  FERB (aka Traig) also found out he was accepted - and I'm pretty certain PERRY (aka Andrew) will also be out there (which will be his first year as he missed out last year).  If these names aren't ringing a bell for you, then you might need to get in touch with your inner child and visit here.

His role in the summer as a potential "counselor apprentice" is a bigger process of application and acceptance - we'll find out about that sometime towards the end of April.  If he were accepted, he would be assisting during the three day camps out at Harlow - which combined with his one week of participation in the middle school camp, would have him out there for four weeks this summer.  Yes, that would be very good.  (During the day camps, he would come home in the evenings - so we would be seeing him....)

Finally, on to a Mikayla "funny" - en route to dropping her off to school this morning, she proudly announced that today she gets her "Question Card" - indicating she has the opportunity each day to only ask 6 questions.  Yes, she is that inquisitive in class, that Mrs. Fitzgerald has to put a limit on it.  I asked if her if I'm supposed to be proud of her and she said, "YES!  It means I'm interactive....".  Oh, to be a fly on the wall in that classroom to see what she's really like.  I always thought she'd be the quiet one....

I'm with you. I think my family is hoping for snow during Spring Break and I'm hoping Tahoe and Reno have unusually warm sunny weather! I'm more hopeful that will happen then something will change here... :(
And I'm with you, outside of Chad, I think I'm on a pretty long no comment stretch as well. ha!

It sounds like a fun summer ahead if spring will ever get here. It's snowing in Provo, Utah right now. (Big sigh)It's too bad a child can't ask every question that pops into her head. As always, I enjoyed your post. Have a wonderful week!
