Catching Up

It's been over a week since we posted anything, so here's what we've been up to since the Itta Bena Homecoming. 

Work and school has been taking up most of our time.  McKenzie's school allows parents to come and eat with their child from time to time and I took advantage of that last week.  It's fun to go and see a little piece of McKenzie's day and she enjoys it too.  Here's a picture of McKenzie and one of her friends.

Saturday, Andy, Caleb, Matt and I went to Memphis to watch the Grizzlies and the Boston Celtics play.  For some odd reason, Andy and I - two southern boys from the Mississippi Delta - are fans of the Boston Red Sox and Boston Celtics, so we were pulling for the visitors.  Of course, the first order of business was to ride a trolley. 

Matt loves trains so we parked and rode the trolley a few blocks and then ate at Rendezvous.  After supper we walked on to the FedEx Forum for the game.  Matt sang for us almost the whole way his version of "Life Is A Highway" from the movie Cars.  His version went, "Life is a highway. I wanna ride it, oh my Lord.".  For those of you who don't know, it should be "I wanna ride it all night long". 

This is the view we had at the ballgame.  Our sets were in the top section but the view was good - a lot better than I thought it would be.  We had a great time, but Matt told me he wanted Mommy to come get him just after halftime so he could go home and practice basketball.

This last picture is of Matt at La Cabana.  This is one of the many little tricks his idol, Caleb, has taught him.

~looks like y'all had a great "boys night out" in Memphis. We have sat in that area of the Forum; felt like I might as well stayed at home!! I know it was fun tho.
