Weekend Wishes

Ahhh...the weekend.
Let me catch my breath.
Let me take a moment to let it all sink in...

This week...

Randi started her senior year. Senior year!
She had a nice first day and was excited to wear her senior blazer. It was only 105 and 60% humidity, but by damn...she was wearing that well earned blazer!  Best news received on the first day? She was given the advisor she wanted for her senior thesis {her French teacher}.

Cade started 7th grade and is a few days away from turning 13. {I told him he wasn't allowed, but I have a feeling he will do it anyway}.  He is all boy and quickly becoming all teenager. I have a feeling he will put more grays on my head than I've had before! Nothing major...a little attitude here and there, girls, and worrying about clothes, shoes, sports...even hair! My sweet little boy is morphing and I'm not sure how I feel about it!

Back to school shopping {I adore school supplies} and attending curriculum nights has made me want to go back to school! {Yes...I was one of those who loved school}. So I {finally} dug out my Spanish Rosetta Stone and have been looking at a few classes at our community college. I'm not interested {at the moment} in obtaining another degree or even a grade for that matter...just wanting to learn.

Volunteering...somehow I got roped in to co-chairing the hospitality committee at Cade's school. Don't get me wrong, I love the committee...right up my ally...just not usually that involved in PTSO. I went from attending one meeting last year to co-chairing a committee! But, my co-chair is great and as long as I'm baking or organizing luncheons, etc...I'm a happy camper.

I have a few other commitments I am working on. I will divulge that information at a later date.

As sad as I am to have summer come to an end {I really wasn't ready}, it's always nice to get back to a routine...a schedule. Of course, that means the school year will start flying by. Before I know it I will have one in college and another in high school...and then one living on the other side of the country and one in college...somewhere. Exciting and a little sad...selfishly sad for me!

Okay, enough! One day at a time! Let's focus on the weekend, shall we?
The weekend has already started...
Last night, Randi and I saw the Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera exhibit at the Heard and then dinner at The Parlor. The rest of the weekend will be filled with relaxing, researching, good food, and maybe a movie!
Here's to a weekend full of learning and relaxing wishes!
