Hi everyone. Got back Wednesday night. We had a great time. The weather was sooo perfect! I mean perfect. It was even cool on our last day so we could wear jeans and sweaters to the airport AND still didn't sweat while we spent time in the parks. We had temps in the mid to low 80s otherwise. T-Rex restaurant surprised us all with one of the best meals we had the whole trip! I expected Rain Forest Cafe level of food but our meal was awesome. Jason and Sophia got steak and I got quesadillas. Just great!
I also bought myself too much. Usually I see a couple of things I want and last year I didn't see anything but a blanket. This year it was PJs, another blanket, wind chimes, long sleeve tee. I stopped myself but not soon enough.
Sophia loved the in room celebration that I had them set up. She was so surprised when she got to our door and saw the banner and all the stuff in the room. THey did a great job.
Last night we toured the High School. I was so impressed. It's about a year old. Just beautiful and has all the bells and whistles. I didn't really know all the awards this school has been given either. Shame on me. National awards for high performing school of achievement. They were one of 18 schools nation wide. Last year 94% of the seniors went to college and the other 6% went on the the military. 94%! SAT scores are much higher than the national average and they met the AYP benchmarks for all students! I am now very happy to send her there.
She saw all the clubs too. I wanted her in the National Honor Society for Art but she liked the Visual Art club better and will also do the cooking club. Besides cooking at regular club meetings they cook once a month for a homeless program and the program comes to the school to get the food. They have an awesome kitchen classroom for it too. That will look good on the college apps. I can't believe this is even a discussion. She is a baby. What happened.
So I have today off and John and I are debating what to do. Holiday shopping would be good but I am not sure how I feel about that yet. It;s a kid free day whatever we do.
