Andrew had his final Manner's Club of the year. They celebrated at Coletta's (a fancy Italian restaurant) with a formal dinner where they could show off all their newly acquired manners. He told me he only "failed at a couple of the manners." Ha! I'm not really sure what that means, but I know he had a blast!
My grandmother, Mun, flew in from Minneapolis after taking care of my aunt and uncle. My parents drove to Memphis to pick her up. Lucky for me, we were able to meet up for lunch before they headed home. Best Tuesday ever!
They were hoping to ride the Dare Devil. They waited for over an hour. Mr. Mack, according to tradition, always rides the roller coasters with the 8th graders. After waiting for the Dare Devil for an hour, Mr. Mack was able to ride the ride. Clayton and his buddies sat down on the ride, pulled the safety bar down, and then were told to get off the ride. They were closing the ride because of weather. Bless them. They were so disappointed. I felt so bad for them.
Sunday morning we checked out of our hotel and then headed to the Georgia Aquarium. It was so nice.
We even got to see a Dolphin show. The show only made me feel bad about myself as an animal. Seriously, they can get these dolphins to do all these things, but I can't even get Dash to come when I call his name. Oh dear...
We really had the best trip. I'm so grateful for the opportunity to spend the weekend with these boys. Middle schoolers really get a bad reputation, but they really are a delight. A delight.
