Saturday

Well, I'm sad to report that because of A LOT of rain, the girls did not have an opportunity to play with the high school band last night on the football field before the game. They were so disappointed. They did, however, get to practice sectionals with the high school band and another junior high school's band. They also got to practice on a side field with the same two bands. They were awesome! Then, the rain came. At first it was a drizzle, but then it was just relentlessly pouring!!


Here's Emily and Jessica after we got back inside. Everyone was soaked! The high school's band director was so disappointed for the kids. They practiced so hard for this night! Before we left, we were able to see the high school marching band perform in the gym. They were INCREDIBLE! It really gets the junior high marching band student's excited about what they will be doing in high school if they stick with marching band.

Today I met my girlfriend for coffee at Starbuck's. I am so happy when I get an opportunity to spend time with any of my girlfriends! It's always nice to catch up! When I got home, the girls and I took Princess to a dog park, and Emily tested more dogs on their paw preference. I posted this request a few days ago, but if you have a dog that "shakes" or gives "paw", can you please email me from my profile page? I would love it if you could help Emily with her science fair experiment!! Thanks!

So, that's it for me. I need to relax a little bit and hang out some more with my family. I made chili today, and it's delicious!! I hope you're having a wonderful weekend, and thanks for stopping by!!

Sorry they got rained out, sounds like they enjoyed themselves despite that, your girls always seem to be smiling. For some strange reason I have this urge to go and find a chili Recipe.

I feel sad for your daughters also Carol. But from the looks of it, they took it better than the adults! I think in a way they still had a great time. Now that the weather is getting cooler, chili is a favorite of mine for dinner also! And...I love it even better the next day:)
