Head on over to Sara's and check out all the other bloggers who linked up. It is a large group this year, so lots of fun. Here is my go:

Used my new Magic Bullet to whip up this yummy blueberry and banana protein shake. Had a big muscle workout this morning, and it is the only way I can choke down the protein powder. It is actually tasty.

I'd Like to Introduce My Son Andrew
It was CHUCK night!!! We all watched and I made chocolate shakes for the kids with...you guessed it...my new Magic Bullet. I have used that gadget more than my George Foreman Grill, Crock Pot, and Fry Daddy combined...I don't actually have a Fry Daddy...but you get the picture.

Bella woke up with a 102 fever this morning. She, however, got herself dressed and was ready to go to school because she had a soccer game and couldn't miss it. She must not have noticed that she could hardly stand up let alone kick a soccer ball and run a marathon up and down the field. Silly girl.

Band Concert Courtesy of Advil
Bella had her first fifth grade band assembly this morning. She really couldn't miss it so we threw some Advil in her and got her through it...then took her home. The percussion bug hasn't quite bit her yet, but she does alright.

Our Patriot Pete
We had a big basketball game tonight. Bella came home early again from school, but Andrew stayed to watch the game and we went to pick him up. We got to watch the 4th quarter which was not a great quarter for our guys. We ended up losing. Here is our mascot, he is one of my students...I love this guy!!

Andrew went to see the Green Hornet last weekend with some friends and really loved it. He thought we all would enjoy it too. So we talked him into going with us on Friday night. It takes a lot to get a teenager to go to the movies with his family so we had to bribe him with our favorite BBQ restaurant Red's before hand. You gotta do what you gotta do.

A Beautiful Songbird
I went to see my former student perform at a coffee house in Santa Monica tonight. She was absolutely amazing. She has such stage presence and such a wonderful voice. She was surprised to see me, and was glad I was there. Bella, Rich and I really enjoyed ourselves.
In Summary: I got some alone time with Bella as I nursed her back to health, and still this spleen-less gal didn't get sick (knock on wood). I also got some quality time with my Andrew too, AND got to document it (don't hold your breath that you will ever see him again in my pictures). I got to be a proud teacher and see one of my own use her talent and passion (that is such a wonderful thing). But most of all I got my money's worth out of that As Seen on TV Magic Bullet. Wow Andrew in pictures and a As Seen on TV success...I should go buy a lottery ticket.
