We did some reading...
We did some handmade* Valentines...
...but not as big a hit as the slides. As mischievous as Luke looks here, though, he's very cautious going down slides. He doesn't really slide with abandon but instead uses his big-ole shoes to slow him down. He cracks me up because as active as he is, he is also so cautious. Believe me, I am very thankful for his carefulness!
In other Roberts news: Jeremy is very busy with his new job, but he is also loving the work and his new teammates, and we're both feeling really good about his job change. He's not the only one working hard - with the missed days because of weather, my end-of-six-weeks grading crunch is worse than usual. I just got back from grading at Starbucks for a few hours tonight, and 51 essays over Heart of Darkness stand between me and freedom at 10:00 p.m. Monday. Just call me Kurtz, because I'm feeling "the horror! The horror!**" Speaking of horrible feelings, I am sore, because I joined a gym two weeks ago! All in all, I am enjoying my gradual return to exercise, despite the fact that Thursday night's "Body Works Plus Abs" class now has me near tears due to soreness that rears its ugly head when I laugh, sneeze, speak, or even breathe. : ) No pain, no gain, right?
**Don't know how many of you know what the heck I'm talking about, but those who do may appreciate the reference. ; )
It's been a busy but great month. I can't believe March is just two days away! My birthday is Saturday, which is the same day we are going to SESAME STREET LIVE!!! I will definitely post pictures, and I'm hoping Luke will love it. He's been pretty fascinated with the Cookie Monster lately, so I'm hoping he digs the show!
My pillow is calling my name, so for now: good night! See you in a week with some Sesame Street Live pictures!
