Saturday night...Bethel style
There's really not a whole lot to do on Saturday nights here in Bethel. You could go to whatever sporting events are happening at the high school, but after spending all week there, that's kind of the last place I want to spend my weekend. I am so used to being able to go out on Saturday night. We used to go out to putt-putt, roller skating, movies, laser tag, the zoo...you name it, we did it. We always had some kind of plans for the weekends, even if it was just going to visit with friends. I miss having fun things like that to do on the weekends.
So, what do we do on the weekends then? Well, here is a fun pic of Chandra and I doing a puzzle at my house on a Saturday night. She came over and we did a puzzle while we watched Christmas movies. I supplied the puzzle, Chandra brought the Christmas movies (I finished the puzzle by the way). That was two weekends ago. This past weekend I was at the wrestling tourny all night Friday night. On Saturday, I was in class all day(do you think there will ever be a time in my life when i'm not taking classes?), after class I met with some of my robotics kids (more on that later) and by the time I got home I was so tired I just read and went to bed. On Sundays I usually watch football while I cook and clean all day. I usually cook/prepare several meals on Sunday, that way all I have to do it put something in the oven on a week night and it's done. Avery has been wrestling most weekends for over a month now. He usually hangs out around the house and watches TV or plays video games. He usually has a friend spend the night, too.
