Three - it's a magic number

Three weeks of school left. That is it for the year. How exciting. We are starting our list of summer goals - getting rid of lots of things is first. I really have the fear that the "Hoarders" television crew will be pulling up to our house one of these days. I have to let go of things we do not need anymore - like the old comforters and bedspreads we have not used in years. [ but I LOVE that Laura Ashley stuff !!!]

Baseball has started, and the monkey is playing short stop. He just looks so tiny out there - I am having a hard time accepting that he is going in to junior high. The ladybug is going to a four year old program next year, and we are all fired up about it - she thinks she is Big Time now.

I would love to say that state tests are over, but they are starting Tuesday. We are ready to get those done, I can tell you.

Have a good week -

The Princess is four

I don't think there was ever a child who had a better time at her birthday party. We ran, we jumped, we put on pink eyeshadow, we had cupcakes and castle suckers with visiting Princesses, and we ALL behaved! Amazing !

Peter Cottontail, I love you

Easter ! Such a wonderful holiday ! I love singing the hymns each year - they touch me in a new way , every single time. I put the ladybug's hair in sponge rollers the night before (even though she thought it would hurt) and she had the cutest head of curls. Some one (not naming names, but it was the monkey) called her "Oprah" for some reason, and that just hurt her feelings. God love them ......
We went to church with Meme - and all three of my sisters were there. I wish our brother had been able to make it, but they had a family vacation, and I am sure they were having a wonderful time.
Now the countdown is on - Ladybug's Princess Party is this weekend, we only have 29 days of school left, and we have already started planning the Monkey's birthday function - gonna be a big deal !
