So, May came and went. I thought November and December were busy, but May put them to shame. The end of school madness is drives mamas to the edge of insanity. It is finished now. These pictures are not necessarily in any particular order because, well, I don’t feel like moving them around.
A good portion of a couple weeks in May were consumed with Teacher Appreciation Week. We LOVE our teachers at Primary, and we make sure they know it! Our dining room table became the hub for everything appreciative.
This was my look for approximately 2 weeks before LASIK. I had LASIK the afternoon after field day. I had every intention of taking a shower before surgery, but then, I didn’t. I was SO FREAKED OUT about surgery, but it was a piece of cake. I took a Valium, and they deadened my eyes…and then they shot lasers into my eyes. No biggie. It all seems like a dream now. I never got panicky or anything. Praise the Lord! I remember coming back home and looking for EK’s ear, then taking a shower, and then trying to find her ear again (it had been lost earlier in the afternoon). Eventually I got so tired (because I was on Demerol and Phenergan) I went inside and put the shields over my eyes and taped them on top of my hair. That was not fun when Jeb had to put the drops in my eyes later that night and rip the tape off of my hair. My hair was so tangled in tape, it was awful. But, then I woke up the next morning, and I saw 20/15. LOVE LASIK.
Mother’s Day was great. This was the card Caden made for me. Please notice at the bottom it says: just made this a few minutes ago. I love honesty. I can’t remember what else we did, but I know I felt special and it was a great day.
Like I said earlier, these pictures are not in order, so here’s the teacher appreciation luncheon. Isn’t it cute? Those daisy’s were some of the prizes we gave away. They were the first things to go.
Here’s the final product for the Haiti shirt. I haven’t actually placed the order yet. Oops. This kid cracks me up. We got these Minnie Mouse pjs from a friend in Sunday school. We turned around and she had put them on top of her dress. She loves Minnie and she loves to dress up.Jeb works 2 Saturdays a month. We go to Target. It’s simple.
These 3 are precious. I am so blessed to call them mine. Here’s my mother’s day lunch photo. We ate at Backyard Burger. Yummy! They have fantastic salads. This girl had her first ponytail! How cute is she? This guy graduated from Pre-K. We could not have had a better year. I wish we could take Mrs. Amy with us to CCPS. We LOVE her! JL would run and jump in her lap and give her a huge hug every morning. Here is the happy little couple. JL asked Sadie to marry him a few weeks ago. She said yes. I’m so glad he found his soulmate at the age of 2. I found a valentines day card Sadie made him when she was 2. Melts my heart. Love her. We were blessed with the BEST teachers this year. Not only did JL love his teacher, but EK and C loved theirs as well. It makes it so much easier to be able to drop the kids off when I knew they’re being loved on by these sweet ladies all day long. And here are some comparison pictures for you. JL first day and last day of school. Caden’s first and last day pic. EK’s first day at the school for hearing (in September) and her last day as a Firefly at CCPS. We ended up in Huntsville for some reason or another. I can’t even remember why we were there now. I do know we went to the cookie company and dropped $10 on 4 cookies though. The kids thought it was totally worth it. :) And this is so typical of JL. They all had their baths and asked for a “variety tray.” A variety tray is a tray with lots of different snacks on it. Then they sit down to watch their show…and JL has on an eyepatch and a telescope. Any time is a good time to be a pirate. And in between all of this we had a few house showings. We had Field Day. We had bye bye brunch. We had other various and a sundry things going on as well. May was so full! I thought June would bring slower pace, but alas, it’s not the case. So thankful to have this house full of munchkins to keep me busy.
