Life is Boring ... and I wouldn't have it any other way

When I started this blog I had grandiose ideas of updating it on a weekly basis with lots of great pictures and stories. Well, the truth of the matter is, our lives are not that exciting.

Ashley has been busy with school and play practice (Annie -- April 2 and 8). In her spare time she reads lots of books.

Don is working and waiting for warmer, drier weather so he can ride his bicycle to work on a more regular basis. He did attend a statewide bicycle summit meeting this weekend.

I'm writing articles for and trying to build my miles in anticipation of May 1st 10 mile Broad Street Run.

Not much worthy of a photograph. So, I'll leave you with a couple of pictures of the cats.

Another Opening

Tonight is opening night for "George Washington Slept Here," a funny play about a man pursuing his dreams by purchasing a house sight unseen in Bucks County, PA and trying to turn it into a home with the help of his wife, his daughter and a crazy assortment of characters. The play runs February 10-16 in Newtown, PA at the Newtown Arts Company.

I play Hester (the maid) with a secret. This is only my second show. As with my other role, this has been a real learning experience. I hope you can come out and see it.

Catholic School Week

As this is our first year post homeschooling everything seems new, including snow days, school parties, homework. Last week Ashley's school celebrated Catholic Schools Week.

Catholic Schools Week is  week-long celebration about what is right with Catholic Schools. What I didn't realize was that it was also a week when the parents were invited to spend a lot of time in the school.

Monday we were invited to spy on our kids in the classroom. Ashley's teacher had the students work in groups then put on a skit for us about the Wright Brothers.

Tuesday they played Bingo, plus it was crazy hat / sock day.

Wednesday an ice storm thwarted their fun.

Thursday we were invited to have lunch with our kids. That was a lot of fun! It was also a dress down day (a big deal when you normally wear a uniform) and they were served ice cream!

Friday was a half day in honor of Catholic Schools Week.

Did we have fun weeks like that in school when we were little?
