Raingutter Regatta, cultural event, Soccer game.
These six words sum up this week - at least by being the highlights of a super busy week. The Raingutter Regatta - one of the most looked-forward to events of the year for all the scouts in our cub scout pack - was on Thursday. My DS won both qualifying rounds but did not make it in the semifinals - he was still pretty proud though (as were we) since the boat was completely his effort this time.
This was followed by an annual cultural event at the kids' afterschool and finally, the last soccer game of the season which ended a all winning spree for our team. The kids were jubilant as we celebrated post-game with pizza and they were exultant when they got their trophies.
All in all, a wonderful though busy week.
This week reminded me of a wonderful line I heard in a movie, which I found by chance of it being in my recommended for you list on Netflix - 'The Shunning' - and which I learned is from an equally wonderful series of books by Beverly Lewis (I plan to get to reading them soon). So, for this week's Quote It over at Freda's blog, here is that line from the book/movie - The Shunning.
"The miracle ain't the life you missed, but the life you have got."
- Beverly Lewis
