The girls and I had a really, really mellow weekend.
And we needed it.
Gordy and Henry spent the weekend in New Hampshire where Henry and his hockey team were playing (and winning!) the Northeast Region Championship. That victory will be the subject of my next post (I forgot to get the photos from Gordy), I promise.
Henry and Gordy left Friday afternoon for the tournament, so we had a three-day girls weekend.
Georgia had soccer practice on Friday evening and a game on Sunday, but we had a sports-free day on Saturday and we took advantage of the situation to relax and lounge around the house.
We also took Pippa Middleton for a long walk around a local lake - but it wasn't the most pleasant experience since it was snowing throughout the trip
(and throughout the entire day) and no one really enjoyed themselves.
This has become unacceptable.
We took the walk because we wanted to tire Pippa Middleton out before we left her in the afternoon so that we could attend a performance of "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" at our local middle school. Georgia's good friend, Danielle, played one of the Pott children and we were excited to see her act, sing and dance.
On Sunday, the girls and I spent the morning doing a massive (and much-needed) straightening up. I can't call what we did a Spring Clean since there was no real cleaning involved. We didn't vacuum, dust or scrub, but we did spend about three hours putting random things away in their proper home, cleaning up the toy cupboard in the basement, organizing closets and folding laundry and now our house looks fantastic.
Our last weekend task was to get Georgia to her soccer game (an hour away) by 5:30. It wasn't snowing, but it was freezing and the biting cold wind made it a long, long game to watch.
Warm weather had better arrive in New England quickly, that's all I can say.
Throughout our weekend, we were receiving updates about the Bantam As and their myriad victories. They won Friday, they won Saturday morning, they won Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning and finally they won the big game on Sunday afternoon, claiming the trophy for their own.
