On this day graduate...




my little boy has graduated from pre-kindergarten. I simply cannot believe it!! He is growing up so fast and I relish the little kisses I still get from him. Just the other night he woke up and came into our room and asked to get into my bed. These times are few and far between and I usually tuck him back in his own bed, but since this milestone was looming I had to let him crawl in bed with Paul & I. Oh how this will not be the case someday when he is all grown up and feet hang off the bed =) Reminds me of the book I love you forever!! I still hear him say camote for remote, gator-egg for Gatorade, gril for girl...always be my baby!



Annalise & what is left of her first birthday cupcake...
More time flying...my two sweet granddaughters just turned one!! Annalise & Isabelle {who were born in the same week!} are both one. i am so lucky to be in their lifes. We got to celebrate with Annalise & her family at her party last weekend. Such fun!!! I would have loved to travel to Michigan to be with Isabelle...but I will be seeing my family this summer because my newest cousin Jaxson James was born!!!! hooray!!!!
& more babies ~ Betsy had her twin boys! River & Jude were born today! They are a little early, but are doing fine.

The four of us got to see our good friend Tiff's new place in Grant Park last weekend. It is so cute! I love her building & grounds...which is close to 100 years old. We went to eat at a fun place {dakota blue} that had chalk for the kids to draw with along the sidewalk tables. Inside there were books & toys....talk about child-friendly. The best part though was the veggie chili cheese fries & chocolate pie! =) Next visit the zoo! I have to show the house-warming gift we gave her. I heart Target! Who doesn't..oh I don't want to meet that person. I just love the bumblebee salt & pepper shakers!! I knew these plate settings & tray would go good with her decor, so I had to grab them. Gosh we have been friends for years ~ since 7th grade. Renaissance always
& to close with some more great news~ I got a new job teaching second grade!!! hooray!!!! Never would have happened in the first place with out Missy! It makes leaving my school somewhat easier..knowing I am heading to a good place. It is a strange, but good, feeling.

I love those salt and pepper shakers! I have to go to target with a purpose otherwise I can walk out with all sorts of things. Luckily my three boys usually detour a long visit. Arent milestones bittersweet. I feel like I find myself using the video camera more and more because I have already begun to forget some of their mannerism of years past.
