Ketchup / Catch-Up

"The mind has to explore every corner of itself, leaving no spot uncovered, because if there is a single dark corner of one's mind which one is afraid to explore, from that springs illusion." -- J. Krishnamurti

"Choose your intention carefully and then practice holding your consciousness to it, so it becomes the guiding light in your life." -- John Roger

Trying to catch up today. Mom & Dad, Steve & Brandon left early this morning. They have a long drive a head of them but I sent Brandon off w/ a little goody bag for the car and he's got lots of videos to watch in the mini-van.

Absolutely beautiful day today. Lots of sunshine!

We have a lot of food left-over from the weekend so I won't be cooking at least the next 2 nights. KJ hates left-overs so this isn't going to go over too well.

So yesterday JV and Varsity played (and won!) each of their State Championship games! Afterward we had our team party @ a BBQ place that opened up exclusively for us. It was very cool (and delish!). It was so wonderful to see all the boys and really visit w/ their parents. One of Chris's senior players was awarded the first EVER Alabama Lacrosse All-American award. Absolutely amazing. Who would have thought there would ever be a lacrosse All-American in the state of Alabama??? Maryland, NY, CT, VA, of course!!! But Alabama??? The other exciting news was one of the players from Huntsville was named as Academic All-American. He's a great kid and plays on Chris's all-star team. Anyway, at the party, the kids gave Chris and the assistant coaches really cool poster-sized collages of them coaching. It was very touching. They also gave Chris a plaque w/ the team photo on it, each of the boys names was listed and it read "State Champs" (whic;h was really risky! what if they lost??!!). Chris loved it! I think he plans to take the 2 state champ trophies to the store for display.

I can't believe the kids have barely 2 weeks of school. Our Europe trip is 30-something days away. April flew by; maybe May can stick around for a bit (although I am really, really looking forward to the summer!).

1). Jack told me today that he just can't eat left overs. I told him some day, he'll be able to eat them b/c they're cheap and really yummy!

2). GO HOOVER LAX! That rocks!

3). Hope you're getting back to normal over there and I love the pictures on the slide show!
