Weekend This & That

Lighthouse played against the Durham homeschool teams in basketball yesterday, and Eric's varsity team won. Jason also had a rec. league game, but alas, his team did not come out on top. You win some, you lose some...

This afternoon Eric and Alex both had their "senior pictures" taken by a photographer friend of ours. Eric is a senior in high school; Alex isn't technically a senior in college anymore, but we didn't get around to getting his picture done before graduation. They shot the photos outside in a few different locations in downtown WF... by the railroad tracks, in an empty lot, against the backdrop of old brick and carved wooden doorways. I can't wait to see them. I think there will be some great shots, which will mean DECISIONS for me. AGH!

I am still on a basically liquid diet. I did have homemade macaroni & cheese for dinner tonight, since it is nice and soft. That felt okay going down. Otherwise, I have been surviving on Slimfast shakes, chocolate pudding, applesauce, and mashed potatoes since Wednesday. Boooorrrriiiiiiing.

Sarah was home for the weekend, which was a nice surprise! She will be home next weekend too. She wants to spend time with her big brother before he heads off for the Army...

Alex has been looking for a car - his first car - and has found one he thinks he wants to buy. It is a 2006 Honda Civic Si, and he brought it home from the dealer today so he can have our mechanic look it over before he makes up his mind. It is sharp looking. I'll post a picture if he buys it.

Sorry you're still not able to eat - anything we can make for you? Maybe we need to meet at ChickFilet and all have milkshakes together?! Sounds like a good excuse to me! I know you're glad to see Sarah a little more and isn't it a relief to have the college app stuff behind you?! Take care -
