It was Military Museum day - after the volunteer time, we did spelling quiz & math quiz.

We made doubles for dinner and apple fritters and then I was off for class and we packed for our trip tomorrow to West Ed.

Spence did his math, reading, printing, drums and then had to make sure he had decided on his essay topic and start researching it.

I ended up downtown and then headed to Costco on the way home, to get supplies for the trip and upcoming potluck....went in with a list of 3 things and came out with a car full of stuff....never go in there unless you are prepared to take home a trunk full of stuff :)

Grabbed food for Karma and had to make a stop at Safeway for Bits & Bites for Spence.  I got home just after 5:30 but the guys were already gone, so I walked the dogs and then ate some supper before trying to get into doing some work.

We read Percy this morning, did our math and spelling quizzes and read more about gladiators - then hustled out the door to PE...I swear, I use more gas going back and forth on Tuesdays than any other day of the week :)

Spence and Bailey (will need to find out how she spells her name) decided to have a date next Tuesday, so when he came to drums this afternoon he was waiting to confirm the date and told his drum teacher he would need to skip a lesson for a girl....to which his teacher says - drums first, girls second :)

We got home and while I did some chores, Spence and Jacob played some card games.  It was 5 before we knew it and we headed off to Thai Chili for my early BD dinner with grama & grampa.  We all ordered stuff to share and boy was it a lot of food - but good stuff.  We had a great visit together and I got a gift certificate for $100 - so I've decided to spend it on my new shoes .... well I've picked several pairs of shoes out of the Fluevog spring collection :)

Now it's time to get some work done, as I've been avoiding it all day :)
We started with Percy Jackson and went onto history - more about gladiators, today it was all about gladiators and their families.  Silent reading, drums, math, spelling and printing - then it was time to get ready to head out with grama for a day out.  Once he got home, he chilled until James came by to pick him up.

I went off to work while he was out with grama and then headed out for coffee before my class.  Tonight we practiced choke holds - lots of fun.

1st Annual Winter Teen Dance

Starting to get hot .... :)

Spence and Bailey (hope I spelled that right) dancing it up




Saturday was the first annual HS Teen Winter Dance - so after we got organized, Kelly came over with Sam and the four of us left to head out to Rhonda's farm.

We got there and the kids went off sledding, then played indoors for a bit before the dance started.  The kids had a great time and we left just after 8pm.  Kelly & Sam stayed for a bit before heading home for the night.

Today, Spence slept in and I headed off to Home Depot for a drywall class.  It turned out I was the only student who showed up - so I quizzed the poor fellow on everything I could think of.  I went off to Nicole's place after for tea and a sweater exchange.....it was great.  Had a terrific time with the ladies and then headed home to make supper for Spence - who said he wasn't feeling well...so it was a decision do we make soup or pad thai?....pad thai won, but wasn't as good as usual (tried a canned sauce for once).
