Highs and Lows
We've had a roller coaster week! On Tuesday, we found out that our beloved principal is leaving us to be the director of elementary schools for the county. This is certainly a gain for the county, but it is a huge loss for us. For anyone who doesn't know our principal or who is not familiar with our school, it is really difficult to explain how much we love and respect her and how devastated we are by her departure. Parents, students, faculty, and even our principal have shed many, many tears this week. We know we will be fine, but we can't imagine our school without her. She is truly one of the most amazing people I have ever met, and I am so thankful we were blessed to have her for the past four years (she's been at the school for 18, so some have been blessed by her for many more years than we have). We will be reeling from this for a while.

On the other end of the emotional spectrum, we are so excited that my Favorite Boy and Coach Dad will be in the championship game in the league basketball tournament on Saturday. They have had a great season with only a one-point loss to mar their record. Unfortunately, they play the team that beat them in the championship game, so it will be a tough one. No matter the outcome, they have had an awesome season, and we are very proud! Sadly, I will miss the game because of my half-marathon. As much as I hate that, I am certain my nerves will be better off if I am not at the game, and I have lined up some moms to take plenty of pictures for me.

I'll be leaving in the morning for the land of the Mouse! Hope everyone has a great weekend!
