Hello Friday

I had a totally different idea for a post for today (it was going to be a nice mixture of sweet and sentimental and profound...I promise!), but the words just wouldn't come together just right. So, instead, I am holding off on that post until the beginning of next week.

In the meantime, though, how about a quick recap of...

Things (cool, meaningful, non-meaningful, etc.) I've done since I last posted on Monday:

* Spent way too much money on school supplies
* Took Sydney to Kindergarten Camp with Sydney (she's very excited about school not so much)
* Received my Alabama football season tickets and have begun the official countdown to kickoff (29 days!)
* Baked cupcakes at 10 pm one night, and had most of them eaten by noon the next day
* Did some scrapbooking for the first time in Forever
* Ordered tickets for all of us to go see an Atlanta Braves game next month
* Listened to Sydney rename most of the Atlanta Braves lineup one night this past week (Brian McCann is now McCandy Corn; Chipper Jones is Chippjon Jones; Jaier Jurgens is Giant Jurgens; Nate McClouth is Clutchy McClutch.) Don't ask me!
* Bought birthday gifts for Mom
* Listened to McKenna happily relate good news about band and color guard camp (she is co-captain of the Guard and they have had 8 a.m.-until 6 p.m. practice everyday). Makes me ready for high school football to start too!
* Slept a little late every day of the week

And things I'm looking forward to...

* Date night with Gary tonight
* Season premieres of "Monk" and "Psych" tonight
* Celebrating Mom's birthday tomorrow
* School starting next week

Have a wonderful weekend, and I will be back much sooner than later!

I bet Sydney is excited about school :] This is gonna be a big year in the Wray household as far as school goes! I myself can't wait to start back on the 21st.

*A side note, I told McKenna last night that I was gonna catch up to her soon on the series! She's read through the 5th one and I'm half way through the fourth one right now :]

Sounds like a fun week and weekend. Have fun at your celebrations, and maybe you can share some of your scrapbook stuff. I've been trying to do some myself.

You guys have fun! I'm with you on spending too much on school supplies lol. I still have to find some graph paper for Kayla lol.

Laura said...

I know someone that would love to "borrow" those Bama tickets! Ha! If they come up missing, you'll know where to look! Have fun on Date Night!

Steph--I can't believe it myself. One in kindergarten, one in 8th, one a senior. All very "big" years!

Marg--I will have to post some scrapbook stuff soon. I'll try and do that!

Adrienne--I gotta find comp notebooks with graphs in them for Delaney. (Did you have to find those?)

Cheryl Wray said...

Laura--LOL Yeah, I know you'd be happy to take any of them off my hands! Seriously...I cannot wait for the season to start!!

Kelly--I sure wish ours did. We start too early down here!

Phats--Roll Tide and Boiler Up!! :-)

Guess I need to watch Psych and Monk on demand. Don't want to miss out on my two soon to be favorite shows (which i've never seen, but I trust you, Girl). :)
