Morning. Back to school, back to starting the thread. ;)
Lori-Glad your new toy is there & hope you love it. Funny about the bf being a regular there now. And-I think the majority of people don't do GS. I'd say it's less than 20% of our school that do it.
Hilarie-We have sashes too & the badges just move to the back. However-our troop is TERRIBLE about earning badges. Ugh. Calla has only earned one all year. There are lots of things they do that could qualify for them-but whoever it is (the leader?) doesn't order or do the paperwork I guess. Sigh.
Not sure what else I was going to say as I had to turn the page.
I've had a busy day-but not too bad. Lacey & I have done a TON of reading today too. She got 2 new big princess books from the girls next door-so we've been sitting around reading a lot today. That's been a good use of the day because it's been really dark all day & dreary looking. But the girls are actually out in the back yard playing for a bit before I take them to DH so he can take them to violin while I go to PTA. I'm doing the auction there again this year-just call me auction queen! I was thinking of trying to do more "active" type things this year. Not sure I'll have enough volunteers to get it done though. 2 ladies that helped last year are gone (one moved & the other's DS went to middle school) and the other lady that helped won't reply to my messages-although when I talked to her in the fall she said she'd help "a bit" with it. So-fingers crossed there are more people at the meeting tonight.
Lori-Fun exercise is the best! Glad you did that. :) Nice to play with new toys too.
Hilarie-I almost always use the iPad horizontally. The other way drives me crazy for just about everything (other than cut the rope...)
The meeting was good tonight. A few people offered to help with different things so that makes me happy. Hopefully it all comes together again. They are moving where we are set up-which I think is a great thing because it was too crowded where we were before. But I just hope everyone finds us & we don't get lost in the shuffle.
All you guys with your new toys - I'm jealous!!! Enjoy them!!
Things are busy at work, classes started back up yesterday so the cadets are running all over the place like ants. Things should settle back down in a week or so. The funniest part is during the renovations of the building there are actually a few rooms that have duplicate numbers so the cadets keep coming to our conference room and my office thinking it's their classroom - however they fail to notice that they should be in the west wing not the north wing. Once all the construction is done the duplicate numbers will go away but for now it's confusing.
Quick reply isn't working. And no toolbar in full reply. Didn't we already get all of these issues fixed????
Lori, LOL at not wanting to scare the bf with your dancing. Glad you got to do it and had fun! Mmmmm...apple cinnamon oatmeal sounds delicious!
Laura, that's nice that some people can help you out this year. When is it? How much time do you have to get ready?
Andrea, LOL to the cadets running around like ants! I imagine it would be confusing to have multiple rooms with the same number!
Lori, the kids don't "like" running. They whine the whole time. And walk S-L-O-W-L-Y during the walk portions. But we all need to get in shape, and I figure that them getting to run through Epcot and such is a great thing to work toward. We'll see. I told them if they survive through next week running that I'll buy them each a new "running outfit". (And it is their choice if they do this or not - I'm not trying to force them. But I am encouraging them.)
