last day


How can it be the last day?  Where did the year go?  The last day of school is always a mixed bag of emotions for me.  Excited that it’s the end of the school year, summer is starting, a change in a routine that has been fairly constant for 9 months.  While at the same time feeling melancholy that it’s the end of a school year and there is a change in routine right around the bend.  I know…I’m crazy. 

I am so very proud of these boys.  I’m one lucky mama and I count my blessings every day.

This weekend was lovely.

The weather was hot/humid, felt like summer.

We had a tball game


Miniature golf game


Piano/singing lessons

A visit to the plaza


End of season soccer party (Charlie was nominated as the best ‘celebrator’ for his team)

Watching a little harry potter.  looking forward to the final movie this summer (Ironically, I can’t get through the books.)

Playing with toys, amazing things happen when you force the tv to be turned off.

14 years

happy anniversary babe!

for the fun of it i'll share some pics.  we had the worst photographer, but at the end of the day i'm so thankful i have the pictures.

we opted to do pictures after the ceremony so we didn't see each other until i marched down the aisle.  i remember kind of laughing and my dad had to tell me to slow down.  :)

my dad looks so serious...ha!  he really does like jay.

in the last 14 years, these kiddos have grown up.  3 are in college, 1 is a senior in high school.  ok, who told them it was ok to grow up?

party time.  i have no idea what we were talking about.  probably something stupid like i wish this song would be over so we aren't out here by ourselves.
