A trip with the EX?

Wednesday my lovely Syd had to go to district for her science fair project. I was so proud. She called me on Monday to tell me about the field trip and that she really wanted me to go. I told her OF COURSE sweet pea. Ahem, is your dad going?


At first after that I was debating if I should go or not. It was really up in the air for me. Because I don't want to make Syd feel like she has to choose between parents or make my ex and his wife uncomfortable. So, I call Syd one more time that week just to make sure that is what she really wanted.

Yes! Yes!

Okay, I manged out of my mouth I will go. I prayed that the time together will go smoothly. This was first for me. To spend all day with my ex and his wife. I wasn't really looking forward to it, but with God on my side it was a very pleasant day.

That's right you read it. A VERY PLEASANT DAY. For me. I can't speak for them but, I feel like everything was cool.  We even ate lunch together all 4 of us at one table with polite conversation. I thank God for that time to show them I don't hate them or dislike being around them. I do believe that if given the opportunity I could do it again. Maybe next time with a little more ease. So, Thank You LORD!!

The day pretty much consisted of movies, lunch, and judging. I will say Syd got 2nd at Hoboke* Ele. but her group didn't place at district. That is okay because they did a great job.

This was a dancing lizard. I wish I would have taken Bro because he would have loved it. Also, I could have counted that as an educational school day. How smart would that have been.?

There was lots of cool little things going on for the kids. I am so glad that I got to spend that day with my sweet daughter. Glad that I faced my fear of pride and hung out with my ex.
