Number 1: I went to the gym. It was cold and I didn't really want to go, but I did anyway and it was good.
Number 2: Park day was nice. We brought the batting tee that arrived last week and tried it out. It is so much easier to hit off it than the bad pitches my kids were giving me. We found out that a wiffle ball that has been left outside for a long time is brittle and when hit it shatters. (I did that much to the amusement and surprise of my boys.)
We also found out that some friends may be moving back to Australia. This would be very sad because their little boy is the one kid near my youngest's age at the park. Youngest is heart broken at the thought of his friend moving away. It is possible that their Dad will find a new job that he likes and the H1B visa will be renewed, but they are definitely on the clock.
Number 3: In good news, my older kids passed the CHSPE! This is big. This is a high school proficiency exam. This means I haven't messed up all these years of homeschooling! It also will give them better access to the community college so I don't have to teach lab science next year. Or foreign language. Or anything else! Woohoo!
Number 4: In other good news, youngest blocked a goal at water polo. Unfortunately, he blocked with his face and it bounced away and the other team recovered and did score, but still. He blocked a shot. It was impressive enough that when play stopped the coach/ref walked over to the goal and asked him if he was okay to continue. He said he was fine and did. He may be young and slow, but he could be a good goalie if he continues.
