I didn't get a chance to write something up for the weekend. We were really busy running around town. Friday was the "Treasure Hunt" at day care, and there was just way too much candy for those kids. Sheesh. Thank goodness I left work to be involved or who knows how much Jack would've eaten without me knowing! Some of the kids just started shoving it down. Crazy. I let him have some jelly beans, but I really didn't like the idea of chocolate sickness all over the place later in the day. Blech.

We left around 12:30pm and went home for naps. Yay! Jack never wants to take a nap of course, but that didn't stop him from sleeping until almost 4pm. Quite a hefty nap for someone who "is not tired." We got up in time to go to the baseball game at 6:30pm. That was fun, but cold! The wind had just not let up, and it was only in the 60s somewhere. They were giving out bats and baseball cards, so we got those. Jack got to have a hot dog and peanuts. : ) Concessions are ridiculously expensive though. The best thing was when they did the national anthem. They were letting kids under the age of 12 run out onto the field and stand with players during the song. I have pictures of course. ; )

We didn't stay the whole game because it was getting late. The Illini lost as it was. They were playing Minnesota who is apparently number one in the Big Ten right now. On Saturday, we went to the football game and the baseball game. They had some of those air structures for the kids, and Jack managed to climb up the big one this time. He also spent a little time in the jumping one. We had to go to the merchandising room because he dressed himself a bit too warmly, and we ended up with a t-shirt that is a little too big. Of course, he didn't mind. : ) I forgot that we also went to the free movie that morning, "Spirit." It was still good the second time around. The theater seemed to be having issues in the booth though, because they started it, stopped it, then started again 5 minutes into the movie, so we missed most of the colt-Spirit moments.

On Sunday, we were both tired, so we just wasted away the morning in the house. I needed to get things ready for our week in Peoria. By the time we were ready to go, it was time to head to campus for the meeting. That was interesting and worth it. Even though a lot of the discussion needed the input of people who have been involved longer than me, I plan on sticking around. We ended up leaving before it was over though. It was 4pm, and we needed to get on the road. Now, I am in my second .NET class, Jack is at Nana's, and the cats are probably all lonely. : (

I hope this week goes by quickly. We need to get back to the cats, the yards are growing quickly because of all the rain, and we are missing the rehearsals for the play.
