What? The School Year is Over!

Brooklyn finished kindergarten! I can't believe how fast the year went by. I only wish my school years would have gone by this fast. She loved just about everything. Her favorites were PE, recess, running the track, specials, and making crafts for family and friends.

Brooklyn also lost another tooth.

Hooray for Grandma Irene!

This past weekend we were lucky to have my mom here with us. She is a trooper. She stayed all night in the airport to catch a flight out to NC. I love my momma and everything she does for me and my family.
Nope that is not a trendy photoshop haze action. It is our lovely NC humidity.

I'm So Excited!

I finally found some fabric I love for the girls room. Well I think I could use it for every room in my house I love it that much. Of course I got the idea for this fabric from The Little Green Notebook. Her blog is definitely one to check out. I am going to make these pelmet boxes for their room. I think it will be fabulous.

I have so many projects that I am excited about. I can't wait to complete one and start a new one.

My Moms

Well May is over. I am not sure where it ran off to. I originally stated I wanted to write a post every day about motherhood. Ha, ha, ha. Who was I kidding. I usual am crashing putting the kids to bed. However I did think a lot and did find myself looking at more positive parts of my life. The bottom line is I love it. That still means I have days that are difficult or I wish I were somewhere else.

I was blessed with an awesome mom. She can be silly at times and we tease her a lot. I miss being near her however we talk and email on average daily. She allows me to call and vent about the little things and the cool thing is she understands. My mom was a very loving mom and shows just as much or even more love towards my kids. I love when she comes for visits. I get a lawn buddy.

I was blessed with an incredible mother in law. I know a few people that can't say that. First she raised Brandon and from the stories I have heard that is a huge accomplishment. So there must be something great about her because I have Brandon. She shows a lot of love towards me as a daughter and also shares that love with my kids. I also miss being near my mother in law. I am thankful when she makes her visits out to see us in NC.

Crystal and Linda's Visit
So much to say but hard to express with a non functioning brain. I am thankful for my friends and family that are huge examples for me. I am also thankful for those that make things easier for me by watching my kids, holding my babies, and listening to me. Thanks!!!
