Drew started the week with a swim test. He is starting swimming lessons this month, and he had to go take a little test to determine which class he should sign up for. He and his buddy, Joseph, took the test together.
When we got home, we filled out our NCAA tournament brackets. Jim, Drew, and I are competing against each other this year. Drew chose his teams based on their mascots, and Jim and I tried to choose by actual basketball knowledge (though mine is pretty limited). Drew is winning so far! The winner gets to pick the restaurant for a family dinner after the tournament, and if Drew ends up winning, he says that we will be going to McDonalds. :)
Drew's birthday party was Saturday morning, and we all came home tired after the party. Jim and I both fell asleep while the kids were napping that afternoon! Jim came in and woke me up at 3:30 to tell me that some friends had just called to see if we wanted to go out that evening for dinner and then a concert by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. We scrambled to get ourselves and the children ready, drop the kids off with Jim's mom, and meet our friends by 5:00. We had dinner at a fancy steakhouse (our friends had gift cards from a client that they shared with us), and then we drove downtown for the concert.
The Concert was called, "Mancini at the Movies." The orchestra played songs by Henry Mancini, and Mancini's daughter sang some of the songs along with the orchestra. My parents liked Mancini music when I was growing up, and the songs were almost all familiar to me. We seemed to be some of the youngest audience members, and we were amused by some of the people around us as they oohed and awed over Monica Mancini's stories and hummed and sang along with the music.
I made my main page with a Design A page protector, and kept things pretty simple with my photos. I wanted to include the concert ticket, so I combined the ticket, the program photo, and a strip of patterned paper on a 4x6 sheet at the bottom.

I hope you all had a great Easter! We did, and I am planning to post about it later this week.
