A bad phone photo but still captured our little outing yesterday to celebrate our anniversary. We saw Monuments Men at Ipic (comfy chairs, fancy drinks, yummy dinner during the movie). We both loved it! We joked that if some couples go on cruises for their milestone anniversaries, we should be okay with paying the price of dinner for a drink! I had some sort of bubbly sangria and it was good!
Phillip: basketball club tryouts in the morning. We should hear today if he made the team. Bruce took him directly to friend Andrew's for a birthday party.
Maya: gymnastics and then celebrating her friend Kenzie's birthday party at Michael's craft store. K's mom took the inseparable three girls to the park afterwards where they took turns sliding down the slide holding Dakota, the dog. They had a sleepover afterwards, so I'll hear more today.
Us: Dinner at Grandparents to celebrate Grandpa's 87th (!). It was great to spend time with them.
And... because I neglected to take pictures all day (the one above was sent by my friend), here is an old one:
The boy had a hard day yesterday -- defeated in Basketball, feeling like he didn't have a chance to play to the best of his ability, and still missing his old school. I listened, hugged, and downloaded a good book into his reader. Also reminded him of the above card sent by his principal.
Oh yes, he is a good friend. And things will get better for this young heart of his.
