These two enjoyed a hefty mathematics conference in the middle of the night. Words like parabola, vertex, axis of symmetry, focus, locus and directrix tripped off their tongues with ease, but it sounded like they were speaking a foreign language filled with hocus-pocus to me! Even though I couldn't understand a darn thing they were talking about I thought they were a couple of very cute smarty pants!
Finn has been in the process of making some pretty big decisions about his academic future. After checking out all sorts of high school options and listening to the advice of trusted adults like my parents, Finn has decided to become a Shamrock for the next four years! Saint Patrick High School will be lucky to have him and we could not be more excited about his choice.

Not that we could ever play favorites among the amazing crop of friends and family we saw over the week-end, but Finn is missing these two quite a lot. He even commented this afternoon that he loves Hud and Cole like brothers. Here's hoping we can can get these three back together sooner rather than later.

Our annual leftover day celebration took an epic turn this year with 23 pajama clad folks in attendance yesterday. When the the phone rang in the middle of the day Leif said, "I am not even answering that because everyone we know is here!" We ate from a bountiful array of leftovers until we were about to burst and still managed to place a midnight pizza order to tide ourselves over until morning. We lounged on soft beds of pillows and blankets while watching six (yep, SIX) movies back-to-back. Leftover day is a lazy 12 hour affair and one of my absolute favorite traditions of the year!
