How about an update?!

I know you've been sitting on the edge of your couch thinking....WHEN, oh when, is Christi going to update us on what is happening in her ever-so-exciting life?! HA! Well, we all know that's not the case, but anyway, since today is our first day of Spring Break, I thought I'd take a moment to let you know what's going on around here!

Let's see....

How about I start with an update on my Dad? He is recovering well! In fact, he and Mom have gone to a retreat for senior citizens! It is held close by, so if they get to a point that they feel like they need to come home, they can. I talked to Mom last night and she said that they've both been doing their own thing and that Dad was coming up to the room to rest if he felt like he needed it. I think that they will both come back from this feeling refreshed and better about everything, especially each other! They are, understandably, on each other's nerves having been in close quarters for much longer than they are accustomed. I'm glad that they decided to go! They needed to get out of the house!

My niece and nephews are playing soccer for the inaugural season at their high school! They've all played soccer for years, but the school didn't have teams. We went and watched them play last Thursday in the first home matches, and they did great! I'm very proud of them and thrilled that they have finally gotten this opportunity!

Chris had an interview yesterday for a principal position in the county. He feel like he did well. We won't know anything until the first of May. While he'd love to get a position, with as many people as are going for these jobs, we know it isn't a definite thing. Either way, it gives him more experience interviewing, and we don't have it weighing over our heads any longer!

Since he was interviewing yesterday and my parents were out of town, that left me no option but to take yesterday off when Isaac was not feeling well. He had been sick on Saturday but seemed to feel better Sunday, but by Monday morning he was back to feeling badly. It ended up being a good thing that I didn't stay at school, because Adam was throwing up within an hour of us coming home! Neither of them were very perky all day/evening, and Isaac ended up getting sick again after he went to bed. Not the most fun way to start a break from school, but I was thankful that I was able to take care of them at home!

Isaac has started baseball practice, and is a good fielder according to his dad. I haven't watched him practice....mainly cause Chris would rather be the one to attend practices. My time to watch him will come soon, though!

I'm getting down to the wire on my two classes this semester, and have GOT to work on my paper while we're off this week. I'm going to be so thankful when this semester is over! Taking two classes at once has not been easy, but it has proven to me that I CAN do this!

Well, that pretty much updates you on what is going on in our humble abode! Speaking of school, I need to finish up work for tonight's class....so check ya'll out latah! Oh, and don't forget to comment....my comment box has been getting lonely lately!!

Hey girl! I'm so glad to hear your dad is recovering well...usually the getting-on-each-others-nerves part is a sign of great recovery! HAHA
