It's hard to believe, especially since I can remember when he started kindergarten, but Erik has 9 more class days left until he will be done with high school. We of course spent the weekend working on the house, homework, and Erik's Eagle Scout project.
Friday night our neighbor Tom came over and helped us to dig the trench on one side of the new landscaping, with any luck we'll finish the second half this evening. Saturday morning Erik met with a group of scouts and built 4 "tape" drums and 3 can drums. He has a few more things to build and then he'll train the physical therapists at Madonna to drum with different techniques. Sunday morning we spent five hours at church, then took a nap and got ready for Mother's Day dinner at our house. The boys bought me a "Toddy" for Mother's Day - it's a cold gravity brewer that makes coffee concentrate which can be used for hot of iced coffee. You make a batch and it can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a month.
This week we have to finish the outside landscaping project, get the mowing done, shampoo the carpets and find the office (it's odd how messy that room can get in our house). In addition to that, we have lots of evening commitments for music from LSE and Friday morning will be senior recognition. It has gone by so fast!
