Day Off

Mark and I sent the boys to camp this weekend. They are camping in the desert with their Boy Scout troop. Usually Mark goes to camp with them, but this time he decided to stay home. Mark and I are having a day off from parenting and it feels wonderful! LOL

We went out to lunch and then we drove down the coast. Unfortunately, we did not get a good look at the ocean due to fog. Still, it was wonderful to just drive down the coast and enjoy the fog. It was beautiful. I am so going to miss the ocean when we finally move to Colorado. We enjoyed shopping at an outlet mall and I found a pair of boots that I can wear in the snow. That will come in handy while in Colorado. After shopping we drove toward home and I fell asleep in the car. Before going home we stopped for a yummy dinner. It has been a heavenly day!

The boys got 1st quarter grade cards on Thursday. I found it strange that not all the teachers reported. Whatever, Eric's grade card was not good. Along with his grades came a letter letting him know that he is in danger of getting kicked out of the school (because he is an out of district transfer). Eric has till the end of the semester to bring his grades up. Brandon's grade card was better than his brother's, but he has some improvements to make. Anyway, both boys have been lazy and trying to get away with not doing their work. Eric told me that he thought he could scoot by, but not at this school, they are tough. I have had to trust the Lord about the school change and I think I am seeing why they needed the change. There are lots of lessons they are learning.

This week we took our kitties in for their bath. Princess was due for her vaccines so when she got her bath they also gave her shots. She is older and just got over a respiratory infection. Well, she had a reaction to the shots and poor kitty came home feeling horrible. The next day I had to take her in again and let them know. They gave her some medicine to help her. She is feeling a little better today, so I am thankful for that, but I am still keeping my eye on her. Princess used to be someone's kitty, but was abandoned. It's been 5 years since we found her at the elementary school all skinny and sickly. Poor kitty has had some hard knocks in her life. Even so, she is so sweet.
