The birthday lunch was fun. There is nothing like being with friends! Can you guess how old they are?
I have lovely friends! The three in the picture were all with me at the Siegel High basketball game last night, too. I wish I had taken pictures there of the Siegel cheering section. Every school should have an enthusiastic student section. I feel sorry for teams who have limited supporters—it would be so discouraging! I saw Emily L. and Annie D. last night…Allie says she was there, but I never got to see her. Carter Troutt looked great—a silvery face and big red spikey things on his head (you know the fun snow hat I’m talking about?). It was lots of fun. Saw lots of my sweet SMS and ESE friends, too. It was a lot of fun—but I was so sorry Siegel lost. What an awesome season, though!
Chip, Grant and Christian stayed up late playing X-box. Actually, later than they were supposed to. Guess Chip won’t have to worry about too much playing time today. Parker had to go on to bed because he’s going to spend the day at the Percussion Festival. I guess I better wake him up shortly. Bernie’s home, and it’s so nice having him here. I think his meeting was informative, which is a good thing. I’m going to get Parker moving, pick up some donuts, and take a nap. Kentucky plays tonight, as does Western Kentucky (NCAA and NIT, respectively). Better rest up so I can stay awake!
