Lizzie turned in her schedule this morning. She decided to take the AP English, and cut back on some of her other difficult classes. Good-bye Spanish 4.
Hannah decided to take a semester off. Can you believe she didn't decide immediately to become a plumber after it was clearly drawn out of the jar? What the hey?
Anyway, she's going to attempt to clear her head a little bit and figure out what she wants to do.
Buddy has spent some time on the phone with the church missionary dept, and they would like him to clear up a medical thing before they proceed. So we're pushed back about 6 weeks. I'll let you know!
Mimi - I have no idea. Apparently on her registration card for next year she needed signatures from all her teachers, but not a parent. I asked her yesterday when she had to turn in her card, and she informed me that they did that last week.
Hope she took something good. ( That's the difference between the first child and the fourth. See, 8 years ago I would have marched down to the counselor's office and demanded to see the card. Now I know that she probably did fine, and heck, nothing is permanent. We'll deal with it in the fall if we have to.)
I love awards! I know they aren't, you know, going to be sending me any cash and prizes or anything, but it's fun to be noticed and appreciated.
I was so excited when Kristin gave me this:
And I decided to turn around and give it to some blogs that have recently made me smile. So this one goes to Heidi, Janell, Corrine, and Two Princess Girls.
And then Nancyface gave me this:
Which I would like to award to Lippy, and Lauren who are consistently excellent in having new and interesting things up regularly.
And finally -
The Candy Hall Of Fame
Now, as I said before, these are not supposed to be my favorites. They are just the ones I would say are the most classic. They have proven themselves with longevity and with appeal to the masses.
My final list is pretty similar to my beginner list. You brought up lots of yummy ideas, but not too many that were more classic than say, the Snickers bar. So here's my final list!
- Hershey Bar
- Reeses Peanut Butter Cup
- Tootsie Pops
- Twix - gets the caramel onto the list, and yet so much more!
- Junior Mints - yes, you convinced me that these are more classic than jelly bellies
- TWIZZLERS, ahem.
