This was another one of those days where everything seems to fall on the same day. With Sharon out of town at the retreat, Jack had a morning baseball practice.
We rushed home to clean up and then took off for Jack's Rite of Reconciliation Retreat. The retreat was over three hours long. The first hour included skits and songs by the kids. The second hour was spent working with the kids on an activity in the classroom. The third hour was spent back in the church with the kids doing their Rite of Reconciliation. Afterwards, there was a reception. Jack and I got cupcakes on the way to baseball practice for the reception.
Heading back home, I ran on the treadmill and watched Cal battle UCLA for the Pac-10 championship.
After I got cleaned up, I headed to the silent auction, dinner and live auction for SEAs, Jack's school. I sat with the Cunninghams and the Santanas. I had a great time. At this point, I know a number of these families pretty well. We see them at the school, in church, at cub scouts and during the kids sports. I liken it to a small town where you know a lot of people and recognize almost everyone. I ended up winning a live auction for a ride to school for Jack and a friend in a police car. I got home about 11:30 p.m. dog tired from a long, wild and busy day.
