In the interest of sharing more of the day-to-day life of the Winsteads (not that anyone has asked for that), I’m jumping on-board the Five on Friday train. Here’s a peek at what we’ve been up to this last week:
Five on Friday: Egg Hunts and Archery
I went out with some friends on Saturday and we had so much fun. We ate Italian food, went to Target (of course), and had the best custard for dessert. It was wonderful to spend an evening out, laughing and eating and knowing J had everything under control back at home.
Our annual Easter egg hunt at church was Sunday. The kids heard the resurrection story and hunted for eggs, but the best part, by far, was the bouncy house. G and B loved it, but J and I had a blast, too. I’m trying to talk the other adults in our Sunday School class into renting one this summer and hooking up the water hose. J and the kids all have a few battle wounds, but I’m sure they’d say they’re worth it.
Q and I watched a high school archery meet on Tuesday. I have several students on the team and, since I try to watch at least one game/meet for every sport, I didn’t want the season to end without making it to a match. Of the four archers who placed, three were from our school. I’m so proud of their hard work!
J and I left Wednesday morning to take 23 students to compete at the Future Business Leaders of America State Leadership Conference. This is my fourth year attending, and every year I’m so proud of the way my students compete, the way they conduct themselves, and the way they interact with each other. This trip is definitely one of the highlights of my year.
I almost forgot to add that on Sunday night I bought our plane tickets for Oregon! I’d been keeping an eye on prices and dates in hopes we could score a deal. Since we have to purchase four tickets- it’ll be five next year!- I work hard to find the best rates. We ended up going with Southwest. It’s our favorite airline to fly, but it’s a bit of a pain because the airport is about three hours away. Between the better flight times, the free checked bags, and the fact that each ticket was more than $100 cheaper than other options, it was a no-brainer. We’ll be Oregon-bound in less than two months!
