Also...this is funny to me. We were at the beach yesterday. T. Willy was even in the water, and I have a slight sunburn. Meanwhile, they had a snow day where I grew up today. Crazy.

I once went on a double date in a red version of this car. On the way home, the electrical system went out, so we had to drive home with no lights. How we didn't get pulled over by the police, I can't really tell you. And though the date was just friendly, I still love the car.

I've long maintained that it's a manufactured holiday. We should tell our loved ones that we love them every day, not just because of a date on the calendar. So the fact that he was out of town today in particular wasn't more upsetting than if it were any other day.
Then I got a text. "Check out front by the glider." So I did. The Big Man gave me a huge and wonderful surprise. Follow my photo journey, and although I didn't post a picture of myself, know that I am smiling...BIG!
If you remember the black eye of two weeks ago, you'll know that if these things had to happen, I'm glad they're happening at school. I can just see child protective services showing up at my door to make me explain his injuries.

After the Pinewood Derby yesterday, we had another scout activity today. It was Scout night at the Pensacola Civic Center. We watched our local Ice Flyers play the Louisiana Ice Gators.
The adventure started as soon as we arrived. We were pretty early, and an employee of the civic center invited T. Willy to be an honorary "bench warmer." He and two other scouts were able to walk on the ice and sit on the bench while the players warmed up. Several players skated by and fist bumped the boys, and even, to TW's chagrin, spit Powerade on them. I told him that he'd have thought that was pretty cool if he were older. They gave him an official game puck and a cupcake, announced his name to the whole arena, and it was a pretty good deal.
The game was fun even though our team was losing when we left a little early. The Big Man even went with us, but he left from there to go to some meetings in Alabama. We had a fun time and made some good memories. Poor MK was sick, so her memories are more "why did my mom make me go?" but I hope she'll remember some fun there too.
(In the distant picture, T. Willy is the kid on the bench on the far right.)

Today I took my students into the prop room at school to get ready for plays they're performing in class Monday. I found this box which was a prop in our play, "A Christmas Story." The girl in charge of props was wonderful. She used this wrapping paper for the Christmas morning scene presents. It made me smile to know it was there - even though the audience couldn't tell.
