We had a very busy weekend but filled with lots of fun events (and Chris and I even got out for a little bit too!). With the bit of warm weather we got after the snow on Saturday, we took a walk up on the boardwalk with my parents and even played some games in the arcade too.
While I always feel it has been a long winter at this point, I can feel the warm weather just around the corner and am looking for many more days that will be spent outdoors. Being at the ocean just has this way of calming any worries or anxieties just by looking at it, so I was happy we got to spend a little bit of time up there. We have our mediation meeting tomorrow so that has been weighing heavy on my mind lately. I'm trying to think positive thoughts, though, and hoping for a collaborative meeting.
This morning, I took Colin and Kailey to a breakfast at Applebees where one of my students was having a fundraiser with her cheerleading group. The special guest was Elsa and they were besides themselves when they walked in and saw her standing there.
It was also exciting because although I packed cottage cheese, I never brought it in and Colin had some pancake and scrambled eggs! We are making such huge progress in the eating department and I can assure you, every bite he takes of something other than his standard foods is a cause to celebrate!
They were so sad to leave and begged me to see her again "tomorrow" but I had to tell a Mommy fib and said that Elsa was heading back to Arendelle. Fortunately, they understood and it actually made the situation better because they said that she would be sad not to be with Anna or Krystoff any more. They launched into this whole scenario on the walk back to the car listing all of the people from Frozen that she needed to get back to. It was quite cute listening to them BOTH talk about it.
Both Colin and Kailey went to the birthday party of one of Colin's friends from school today and had a great time. It was a fun, and exhausting, weekend!
