The craziness that is May has begun so with that in mind tonight I am sharing a post from my stay in Rehab. I wrote it after my first day and I was not a happy camper: Rehab Reality: It Isn't pretty If you have any qualms about privacy and bathrooms then this story is for you :)
It seems that everything this week was scheduled on the same day. Tonight alone we had 3 different activities that Patrick was a part of. He wound up having to miss rehearsal for tomorrow night's YouthQuake Live show, which will be his last. The first event of the evening was NJROTC awards. Wait a bit of drama just for fun. Awards start at 6:30, Cadets had to report at 6. Patrick had gone to a friend's house to get ready, she was driving. 6:40 no Patrick or friends. I can't get a hold of him on his cell phone ~ you know what I was thinking. Now I'm asking the kids who aren't involved at the moment do they have L's cell number or R's some thing's wrong. No one can help as the kids were instructed to give their cell phones to their parents. Just as my worry is reaching hyper mode the three kids come running in ~ thank heavens, then I chewed them all out. After that bit of drama I'm proud to say Patrick received a personal achievement award along with other unit awards. The Unit had over 50 trophies displayed that they won this past year :) Tonight was the last time he is required to wear his uniform; I however am making him wear it for Graduation Sunday at church.
While we stayed for a few quick pics we then (along with a few of his friends) loaded into the Van and headed across town to our next Award Ceremony of the Evening~ County Media Festival. That started at 7 but as they also give out awards to Elementary and Jr. High Media Teams we had a bit of time. We walked in just as they announced his Video has won Second Place. Another of his Videos also won Second. A highlight of the night was the introduction of a new Media Teams at one of the High Schools. All of its members are handicapped in one way or another. Watching their excitement when their video was played just made my night ~ Congrats RHS Sky Blue Team.
The night ended with laughs at our local Steak and Shake. It's only May 4th and I'm getting worn out~thank heavens I took a long nap today!! All in all a great nite
