A Week in Review (March 8-14)

A Week in Review (March 8-14)

Watched: The Jayhawks lose a 17 point second half lead in the final game of the Big 12 tourney. I can't really say that I am surprised though. Ellis is hurt and the other guys are just inconsistent. I hope they prove me wrong. 

Read: I finished up The Scorch Trials. It makes eager to read the third book in the series. Sadly I am like 40th in line at library, so it could be quite sometime before I get to. It really left you with more questions than answers. Ugh!  Next, I began The Bees.  It seems to be going okay so far.  I can't really seem to tell where it is going, but that isn't surprising for me with a sci-fi book. 

Listened: To a bunch of crazy kiddos on the bus on the way to the Field Trip. We visited the Clark Planetarium. A couple of the kids mentioned loving the downtown vibe which cracked me up. We got to enjoy the exhibits before heading to a dome movie that gave a fun description of the planets. It was a bit dizzying, but fun overall. After that we headed to a more interactive exhibit that was presented on a sphere. There is a picture below, so you can see what I'm talking about.  My group was starving and so I bought a large tub of popcorn and a 3 for a $1 piece of candy for them. You would have thought I'd given them the world. They were so thankful and let me know it. I was really impressed by their great manners. The bus ride back was much quieter. Guess they were all a bit more exhausted. 

Made: Plans for Jack to go with our neighbor to a Real Salt Lake game.  He had a blast. She even sent me a couple of cute photos. Since Nick and I aren't really soccer fans this was a great opportunity for him. I love that we have a fun neighbor.

Felt: Proud of my team. We finished the season 5-2, losing to the same team twice. I put together fun little tags to attach to their trophies so they weren't just getting a participation trophy. I don't think I have the skills to coach them at any higher age, but I felt it worked okay for this season.

Planned: That Jack's spring school photo would be just average. But I must say that I absolutely love it. He seems to have mastered his smile. I am so glad that I ordered the digital file too so that I can hopefully crop it so it runs in Portrait mode rather than Landscape.  It's funny when I look him that I don't really think looks like either of us.  Guess that just makes him his own perfect copy.

Loved: The stage movement at the Hale Center Theater. When we arrived, I couldn't imagine how they could transform such a small space into stage. But they did, and it was awesome to see. The play was so-so for me.  I was watching one of the extras and I was like I know her. And then I said "nah, must be  her cousin". But she grabbed me after the show as I was walking out, so I guess I was right after all.  Jack had a good Te too. He got to make a fire and roast hot dogs and Marshmallows. There was also charades and Minecraft playing. 

Here are the pics for the week:

Most of the 1st grade class enjoying their presentation at the Planetarium.  There were interactive clickers that the kids really enjoyed.

It's hard to see in this picture, but the frame in the top picture has lowered to become a walking platform.
