Bowling and Yankees

So Thursday night I went bowling with the Principal, one of the Asst. Principals, Teacher, and two of the secretaries. It was fun even though I have not bowled in a few years. I didn't do too bad. I bowled a wasn't the lowest score ha! The Asst. Principal wanted to make a bet that the loser bought everyone Starbucks. Guess who lost...she did! It was alot of fun though and I enjoyed getting to know everyone outside of the professional atmosphere.
Here are the only two pictures I took though.
This is one of the secretaries bowling. She did pretty good...but she had bumper guards lol!

Funny story about this was the Principal. The first bowl he nearly tasted the floor b/c he stepped over the line and those of you who have done this know that it's very slippery. unfortunately, I didn't get a picture.....fortunately, he didn't fall.

So, the week went well and I enjoyed everyday. Yesterday students were out for Professional Development Day. Some of the staff and teachers went to Garden of the Gods for some team building activities and training sessions. Some of us stayed behind to get our offices organized and catch up on work. I didn't have too much to do since I'm just starting...haven't had long enough to get unorganized. So I help some of the ladies get caught up and clean.

I am excited about moving to the new school in August so I can start fresh with a clean slate and create my own system. I met one of the teachers who will be moving to the new school too. I was invited to have lunch at the new school's training session, but felt like I should stay behind and help the other ladies clean up and organize instead. Eventually, I will meet the other staff.

So this weekend I'm catching up on laundry, dishes, and cleaning the house. I forgot how much the house is neglected when I'm working. I am looking forward to getting my routine figured out so I can balance being a housewife and my full time career.

Jeff's parents bought us an address plate for our house as a housewarming gift a few months ago. We finally put it up today and it looks great. It's great competition for the house down the street that has another team on their plate.
It'll be even sweeter when they win the world series again and when we get our Yankee flag up that we got from his mom during our Easter visit. (That's on the to do list for tomorrow.)

I do have a prayer request. We have been considering something very big and need your prayers. I can't talk about it yet, but please pray that God shows me what we should do and that everything works out best for everyone.

"You are the helper of the fatherless. LORD, You have heard the desire of the humble; You will prepare their heart; You will cause Your ear to hear, To do justice to the fatherless and the oppressed, That the man of the earth may oppress no more."
~Psalms 10:14,17-18
