may 25th through the 31st
no school on monday. memorial day. and the final day of kenzie's volleyball tournament. when it was all over, we came home to pick up max and madi and then we went and got bryan and went over to the bertrand's for a bbq. dana bbq'd some carne asada and chicken for some yummy burritos. max helped jude make some s'mores cookies and some cookies with the peanut butter cups in them. darric has been barely getting out of calls all weekend and finally he got one he had to run right when we got to the bertrand's house. that really sucked. especially since he had to miss darian interacting with his girlfriend, ariana.
tuesday was back to school and max's field day. kenzie had her first HS open gym at 2:00. madi got her yearbook after school today and had her last next level volleyball practice that evening at silverado. kenzie and max went with us and at 6:00 kenzie left us and went and waited for bryan's mom so she could sit with her at bryan's band concert. they got done right as we did.
tuesday, max brought home an envelope that coach wayne had given him. it was inviting us to the assembly the next day because max was getting an award for PE. darric was able to get off in time to go with me to it. not only did he get the PE award, he also got a math award from his teacher too. that was a nice surprise.
when max came out from save on wednesday, he had this long box in his backpack. it was a rock collection that he won at a raffle in his classroom. his teacher is raffling off a bunch of stuff she doesn't want to keep anymore.
wednesday evening, darric and i went to madi's award program. she was one of 100 students to get a presidential award (an award for getting a 3.5 GPA or higher). i thought they would have recognized the students in geometry, but they didn't. they gave out a bunch of other awards though and we were there for quite awhile.
after school on friday, madi went to mckiah's house. then her mom drove a group of them to battle blast to celebrate mckiah's birthday. me, max and kenzie went over to sandy and steve's house to celebrate coda's 7th birthday. it was a camping theme. with tents set up, games all over the yard to play. like bean bag toss, lawn darts, checkers and giant yahtzee. steve bbq'd some hamburgers and hot dogs and for dessert, ice-cream sundaes. then the kids each got a flashlight and glow sticks and we all made bags full of trail mix. it was an actual camp out (sleepover) but we had too much stuff going on the next day, so we just stayed until 9:00. then we picked madi up on our way home.
saturday morning, madi had a volleyball clinic out at durango high school. it was from 9:00 to 12:30. kenzie's nevada jrs coaches were running the clinic. darric and i ran her out there. then him, kenzie, max and bryan went out to dicks to get a new plyo box. it's taller than the other one we have. at about 11:00, we all went out to durango and watched that last hour of the clinic. madi was working on serving. she is now doing it the right way.
at 4:00 that afternoon, madi had her last next level volleyball game at henderson international. grace happened to have a game at the same time, so we got to sit with jen, dave and their out of town guests and mom and dad came too. madi's team lost the first two games and won the third.
sunday, madi and i went and looked at a couple model homes. max went into work with darric for a little while and kenzie went with bryan and his family to ihop for lunch.
