Happy Friday to you all! I'm keeping this short and sweet this week because we've got a pretty crazy weekend full of lots of fun (most of which I will be out of state). I can't post where we will be yet because it's a secret and I don't want snooping kiddos to give away all the fun. But here's what we've been up to this week:1. WORLD SERIES CHAMPS!
2. A "Blue Day"
If you haven't heard...school in Kansas City was cancelled on Tuesday for the World Series parade. Literally, every school district jumped on the bandwagon and let kiddos and teacher alike go to this once (or maybe twice if we're lucky) in a lifetime experience. We went, along with 800,000 other Kansas City fans. Literally- so nuts, people were just abandoning their cars on the side of the highway! We parked super close and found a spot in the crowd, but then the joke was on us on the way out. We sat in the family van in the parking garage near Crown Center for an hour, then moved only a block in the next hour. Since I had to be back for National Honor Society, and we weren't moving, Aaron and I ended up getting out and running 2.2 miles up Grand to meet his grandma so she could take us to our car. Definitely made for some memories we will never forget!
3. Featured Posts
I've been so blessed this week, and it's been so very exciting to have featured posts on three different blogs this week! I'd love to share a little of my excitement if you'll let me. Women with Intention is an amazing blog that I link up to each Wednesday, and my post on What Rejection Taught Me was the most popular post of the week! The same post was also chosen as a feature on the Turn it Up Tuesday link up. Also, I'm beyond thrilled that Melanie Redd's Ministry of Hope blog featured me as one of her 100 Most Inspiring Christian Blogs on the Web. She is such an amazing woman with an amazing ministry, and I am so honored and humbled just to be mentioned!
4. So, so proud.
I've got to brag on the hubs just a little bit, folks. Not only did he run down Grand with me as previously mentioned, but he has also been all sorts of awesome this week. He's done a TON of work for our YoungLife trip (see below). He put me (a grown woman who's not super light) up on his shoulders during part of the parade so I could get some good videos. He was selected as his school's Teacher of the Month, and some students wrote some really sweet things about him including (and I quote), "I am choosing him because he is always there to put a smile on our faces." and "I chose Mr. Kleinmeyer because he is so fun and has taught me soon much since the beginning of the year! I didn't like social studies until this year." AND to top if all off, he also passed his Industrial Technology Certification test, which is a big deal. Gosh, what a catch. So proud of my great guy!
5. Non-Stop Weekend
More on this later when the location isn't a secret anymore, but send up a little prayer for us as we head off on a crazy 36 hour adventure with 60 high school students. It's going to be a blast with tons of memories, but I also know I'm going to get little to no sleep. Totally worth it though. I'll have photos to share soon!
Hope your weekend is wonderful!
