Lauren told me about Thomas the Train coming to the Nokia theater and that the boys would love it! SO, we got tickets and off we went. Getting there was the easy part!
Leaving was miserable! Little did we know we would be stuck on 30W with about 200 million other cars. The thing we didn't know is that a local radio station had postponed their Cinco De Mayo celebration, and we were STUCK in the middle of all the traffic. It horrific! WE SAT STILL FOR 1 HOUR! We only needed to go 1 mile. 1 MILE! It took us 2 hours to go 1 MILE! We saw people getting out of the car and taking care of bathroom emergencies on the side of the road. Thankfully we didn't have to do that.. and the boys didn't have to do it. I did miss Parker's first indoor soccer game though. I made him a video of all the traffic we were sitting in and sent it to Stacey so he could see we weren't just out partying with Thomas! WE WERE STUCK!
Today was the end of the 2010-2011 preschool year. WE MADE IT! It was a bit sad knowing it was E's last year, but I am very excited to see how she blooms in kindergarten next year. Bowden, well, he is Bowden and will be joining me again next year. I should be praying for his teachers.
I love my preschool. I love the women who work there. I love that I work with friends.
Love. Love brings me JOY! AND that is my word. JOY!
Oh sweet Emaline... maybe this is second child syndrome, or only girl complex, or maybe because we are paying for Stacey's raising (HA), but this girl challenges me. CHALLENGES ME!
I do want to document one of her E'isms from yesterday.
We were taking communion... and I should say we were at a church that we don't usually attend. At our church the children aren't in the worship when we take communion, so she was seeing something she doesn't see often.
I take of the bread when she tells me she wants some, no please, no may I, but I want some. I quietly tell her..... no Emaline, you will need to wait until you are baptized.
MOM! I have jumped in water before!
straight face. her's not mine. Mine, smiling from ear to ear, stroking her hair.
The night before Mother's Day, we let all the kids sleep together. I walked in around 11:00 and this is what I found. Then we moved them around to hopefully allow them to sleep a bit better without cramps!
We had a great year this year at school. Here is my little ladybug! Not so little anymore!
Check out his curls! Sibling love! NO! She can't be this old! She will be in Kinder next year! Say it ain't so! Parker made bread this day at big school. He brought it home and couldn't wait to spread the love, I mean butter all over it!
I'm trying to do some catch up, if you can't tell. I found these photos that I thought I would bless you with. Emaline is my child who fights naps. FIGHTS! I'm not tired. I'm not tired. THEN, she crashes. Here we are after leaving Steak and Shake in Arlington on our way home. CRASH! Lunch with daddy! This is one of Stacey's favorites! Salmon Croquettes. I don't remember why he wasn't going to be home for dinner, but he wasn't, so I found it fitting to stick to my menu and cook them anyway. I took a photo and emailed it to him as a reminder of my menu. He ate them when he got home. I am not usually that cruel and it was so long ago I don't remember why I was so mean!
