The Principal Chronicles continue ... (Winter Break Edition) Well we finally arrived at the midway point of the school year. I say this all the time but "boy did the time fly by!". Of course, as soon as we get back to school in January, things really hit warp speed but I don't want to think about that right now, I just need to get through these next couple of days. On the home front, we don't really have much planned for the break. We get Christmas morning with the girls this year but then after that, they go off to their other households for the rest of break which kind of stinks since we get out of school so close to Christmas. That means that this weekend and the few days leading up to Wednesday will be jam-packed with as much Christmas stuff as we can fit in. We are going to Estes, painting ornaments, cookie baking/decorating, wrapping presents, finishing our shopping, and hitting the North Pole in the Springs. Yep, we are going to try and knock all of that out in just a few days. It should be interesting. The only other thing we have that is of note, is my youngest will have her first-ever basketball game tonight (Wednesday) vs. Sierra. For those of you who remember, I basically forced her to pick a sport that ended up being basketball. She started practice about a week ago and will play for Cimarron's C team. I haven't seen her practice yet outside of the few times we tried to get her to practice at the rec center, so I am excited to see what she can do. After the first practice, she LOVED playing and it was the best thing ever. Since that first practice however, she discovered that there is running involved in basketball and she isn't a fan of running. She discovered that catching the ball with your face doesn't feel very good. She discovered that her basketball shoes don't look like the other girls on the team (because her father didn't want to drop over $100 on basketball shoes that she may only wear for a month). Lastly, she discovered some of the girls "don't like her" stemming from some instance that happened between them way back in third grade. So basically I have no idea what is going to happen tonight, it could be awesome or it could be a total train wreck. Either way, I am sure it will make for a good story unless she doesn't play. Hope that doesn't happen since I just wrote this whole foreshadowing story about basketball. That is it for this week, have a safe and wonderful winter break and a happy holiday season. We will see you next time when all of you are taller!! Until next year, when the Principal Chronicles continue.
