Well, since my mantra "Fratello Maggiore ... get to work" seems to continue, we have to forgo the gladiators today and instead I get to do the "great mathematics battle" with my eldest! Yippee for me (STILL offering it up)!
Anyway, my thoughts now turn to a wonderful weekend planned for us soon. We will be going to a local hotel with a friend and her family. We are so excited! The men and kids will hang out together and go swimming, etc. My friend, T, and I will spend the evening and next day scrapbooking (my one and only hobby these days) in a nearby conference room. I look forward to this brief respite from our daily winter schedule! More importantly, I look forward the fellowship with our family's good friends!!!
