Conrad has been feeling under the weather this last week so he opted to stay home during Sunday school to sleep. He sent me this picture of his bed buddies:

While the kids are away...the parents will play :)

With Kiandra working and then off to babysitting, and the other 2 away for the youth conference, Conrad and I headed out for our second date night in a row!

It was a province wide inservice day today and my friend Janice and I attended a session together and then participated in the photo booth there:

Kezia participated in a fundraising volleyball tournament today. When the appointments this morning, she was sure she was going to be late for the tournament but Conrad dropped her off just in time. She has been a part of this tournament before because it involves dressing up in a theme. This year her team dressed up as Dr. Suess characters. She was the dog who dressed like a reindeer from "When the Grinch stole Christmas". She was surprised when her team kept winning and she was disappointed to have  to stay at school beyond her classes. (Her classes this semester end at noon)

Kaden's high school does interviews before report cards and I got to meet with his teachers this evening to see how he is doing. I wasn't at all surprised what his teachers had to say since I am not seeing the lack of effort that Kaden puts into school and I am glad that there is time for Kaden to reach what he is capable of before the report card comes out.

I didn't even realize that my principal had taken this photo until it appeared in our family memo today. This was our "day and night pattern" art and involves students painting 2 pictures (1 day and 1 night) and then cutting it into strips to glue into an alternating pattern. When the completed piece is folded like a fan and placed upright, it is possible to see the full "day" picture from one angle and the full "night" picture by viewing it from the other side. God takes our brokenness and makes it complete by changing our viewpoint. What a great reminder!

One of the things I like about having Kaden's girlfriend on snap chat is getting updates about Kaden from this:
I'm not sure why he has two bags of treats and doesn't look like he's sharing with anyone????
