My Boy Rocks!

As you saw from my last two posts, I've had an insane/cruddy week. It continued in that pattern throughout the rest of the week, and I'm so glad it's Friday. Today, my boy had a simple, yet awesome and much appreciated surprise for me.

Each year, our fourth grade team goes to an outdoor museum that is kinda like Williamsburg, VA. It shows colonial life, and farms from the different countries that settled in Virginia in the 1600s. Usually we get a grant to go, and we get a charter bus plus the kids only have to pay like $20.00 each to go. This year, we weren't fortunate enough to get the grant, so we have to wait until next year to take the trip again (It's also a 3 hour drive from our house, and many of the kids don't get to leave our town, and they think it's sooo cool to go that far away). Personally, it's my favorite field trip we take. At the gift shop, they have the most AMAZING fudge, and I commented to my husband a couple of weeks ago that I was bummed because I wasn't getting any of this amazing fudge. When I say amazing, I mean better than my grandmother's fudge amazing. And that is saying A LOT because nobody's cooking can even come close to holding a candle to my Gram's.

Today, my boy got to go up near the museum to support one of his really brainiac kids in a Geography competition. He called and told me he had a simple, but big surprise for me, so I was antsy all day long to see what it was. When he got back in to town, the kiddo and I met him for dinner, then we went to the car, and he got out a small bag. When I opened it, it had 3 kinds of my favorite fudge from the museum gift shop! I am one happy girl because I got my fudge, and when I'm in a cruddy mood I like to have something junky to munch on. He was definitely right, it was simple, but greatly appreciated.
