We had our own version of "March Madness" at our house this week. The grandsons - ages 4 and 5 - and their mom, our oldest daughter, came to visit for spring break. Our house was full of running, jumping, flying soccer balls, laughter, piano "playing", a few sobs and a bit of screaming. We did some jig-saw puzzles, played Yahtzee, dominos and endless games of fetch with the dogs, took rides in Uncle's semi (not his personally, but his job during spring break) and watched "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs" three times. They headed back to Albuquerque yesterday and we collapsed on the couch to listen to the silence. Fantastic visit - but we're not as young as we used to be!
Now starts the actual March Madness. Here's hoping it can be just as exciting. For the first time in many years, our Cats were not one of the "bubble" teams waiting to see if they would even get in. We were the #2 seed in the West region and defeated North Texas today, 82-62. Go State!
We have finished a couple books amidst the chaos and will try to get reviews up soon. In the meantime - what teams are you rooting for to make it to the Final Four? As long as they aren't playing against Kansas State (and they don't happen to be that rival team from our state) we'll cheer for your team.
