We are officially on our countdown of how many weeks, weekends, and days until we move home. Matt Freije came to the school on Friday to see our classes. Courtney took a picture of my class with him and it's so cute! He looked like a giant compared to them. All my little ones could do was laugh at how big he was. Several months ago one of the ceiling tiles in my room fell to the floor (and it's still leaning up against the wall - noone will fix it) so one of my girls came up and whispered to me, "He can fix the ceiling!" Friday after school we had a little Karaoke night with Courtney, Katie, and me. Leavenworth people: get ready for some Karaoke parties at our house!! We decided to make the most of time off when we have it so yesterday we spent the day at the beach with the Dills. We were going to go up north but Brent wanted to be back in time to watch the Nuggets in the playoffs so we set off to the east to find a new beach. We ended up going to Palmas Del Mar which is a swanky "community" all by itself. They have golf courses, shopping centers, restaurants, a bilingual school, and a nice public beach. We spent a few hours there until it started raining then we drove home. On the way we stopped at a restaurant with an outdoor bar to have a drink overlooking the ocean. It was nice to stop somewhere new. Today will be spent cleaning, doing a little packing, and getting ready for a 3 1/2 day week of school!! We have school Monday - Wednesday, Thursday we're out at 11:00 because it's "student's day", and Friday we're off for "teacher's day". Katie's sister, brother-in-law, and nephew get here on Wednesday so we're excited to meet them and maybe spend some time with them. There's been talk of parasailing on Saturday...we'll see!! The weekend after that is open so far but then the weekend after that will probably be one last hoorah at a beach and tattoos! The dogs come home in 2 1/2 weeks (May 16) so that means only 3 1/2 weeks for us. The time is going so fast! Here are a few pictures from the bar we stopped at on the way home. Hope everyone has a great week.
