Wow...long time, no blog. Sorry about that. :) We've been busy around here!
<~~~That right there is the FIRST PLACE trophy for the Tiger Cubs in the Pinewood Derby! Yay, Noah! (and Daddy!) Noah's litle pinewood derby car was zooming fast and he placed first in every race except one. He was SO excited! So he got 1st place overall in the Tiger division for his Pack. :D
Saturday David and I went to the Eric Clapton concert in San Antonio. It was fun...and LOUD. David is a huge EC fan, so I happily went along with him. A few observations from the concert:
1. Average age....45ish. 2. This age crowd does not stand up for the entire concert. (thank goodness, haha) Very helpful when you have floor seats! 3. The crowd was actually interested in musical ability, unlike the crowd at the New Kids on the Block and Debbie Gibson concerts I took my younger sisters to in the 90's. :D 4. When Jimmie Vaughan comes out to play for the encore with Eric Clapton, you don't need to introduce him. Guitar fans know who he is. 5. Not much dialogue is needed. I think Eric C. said maybe 30 words all night. 6. Each guitar player in the band needs a 5-minute solo in each song. 7. Obviously some people still think mullets are in style.
There was this chick there with a long mullet/80's female rocker hair, a huge fanny pack, and a tube of eyeliner on that kept dancing in the aisle, obviously thinking we all WANTED her to do that. She had a seat way up in the first section AND a seat in front of us. She would dance up and down the aisle, between the two seats, of course shouting, "whooooooooooooo!!" along the way. (translated..."look at me!") The usher was more than annoyed with her. I think I had more fun watching people than the concert. :) It was a fun night and David loved it!
I added another date to my class calendar. I'll be teaching at Lone Star Scrapbook Co. in The Woodlands. :) Classes are pending so stay tuned!
Working on classes, rearranging stuff in the house, making up some class kits for sale.....lots to do!
God bless you this week. :)
