Leah has been staying after school still a lot. Now she is getting extra Math homework to make up for when we are gone. Last week we had practice everyday. Some days if Dave is free he will come and get Blake before Leah's practice so he doesn't have to stay as long. And we finally got a schedule for Blake's basketball, which is fantastic. Not looking forward to January, we are double booked in separate towns a good number days of each week, but it will go by fast. Thursday Blake had facial hair day at school. I had read all the notes and still forgot about it until I saw a friend's picture right before the bus came. We quickly grabbed some eyeliner and did our best.
That day Leah also had her next physio. It is going really well. The game she played this week, she played a lot and even though she still needed to wear both knee braces, she was pain free. New experience for her. I love watching the simple exercises he gives her and amazed how they work.
After physio she meet up with her band class to set up for a community Christmas bazaar. I ran home, had dinner in the crock pot. We ate and then headed back up. Blake was at a school service project and movie night. We picked up Leah, handed her the dinner we had brought up for her and took her to the school for practice. Then Dave and I went to Bishop's house to met up with those that were able to hand out the green bags for the food drive. Seriously my favorite service project. Dave and I finished our section of the town just in time to pick Leah up and then on to Blake's school to get him. Friday afternoon, I took Leah up to take down the bazaar, another fast dinner and she was off to the stake dance. Dave, Blake and I went bowling again as she danced the night away. She had not been enjoying them a lot lately, but said this last dance was so much fun again. Meet a few new people. Blake beat us in one of the bowling games. It was awesome. He came from behind and was so pleased. Saturday morning we again met at Bishop's to collect the bags. We had a little more help this time and between all of us, the whole town was picked up in 45 mins.
On the way to town on Friday I commented that it was actually a nice day and that we should separate cows Saturday. It seems it always gets done when it is freezing. Dave talked to Jared to see if he was free and if it would work. So after picking up bags we headed home. Had a quick chat with Cora to find out about her Preference date, it was awesome and she had a blast, and then we separated cows. It went so smoothly. They practically separated themselves. K not really but it was smooth. :) Back home to prepare snacks for Sunday and then back to town. We got some Christmas pj on the black Friday sales and then met up with all the Puzey's for our Adult Christmas Dinner. We had a smaller round table this time. We were pretty cozy, but it was perfect. We could hear everyone and had a really nice time. Sunday early, I ran Leah over to Emily's. She went to church there and song practice. They then brought Leah back and we had snacks and sat around doing nothing but talking. It was wonderful. Monday was back to basketball practice. Tuesday Dave and I went to the temple. Nicole had a ton of sealings that needed to be done. I was surprised to see my friend from High School there and we had a great time catching up. Myrna kindly took Blake and Leah to youth that night. Wow this is turning out to be long. Wednesday Leah had her first game. She got a lot of playing time and did very well. They did lose though. By a lot. Leah had asked me to get some pictures of her before the game.
They are getting new uniforms. Should be here about mid January. It is a long story, but when the new ones come in Leah does not get her number. She wanted pictures in #4 before they get switched.
Natalie and Emily came to the game. Leah had known they were coming, but I didn't. I was surprised when they walked in. It was fun.
Thursday we looked at the calendar and only had one thing on. It was so wonderful, and Leah's coach let them all go an hour early from practice. Wahoo!!! This morning I got up early with Dave and we picked up his truck that had needed new mufflers. We have done the usual, baking, cleaning, laundry etc. But Not. One. Thing. is happening tonight. Blessed eve!!!
