field day

Abby had field day today and it was so fun!  The kids were put into groups and a 5th grader led them around and they went from station to station.  Fun morning!

The girls were smiling as they bumped into each other trying to knock each other down.

Tug-of-war between the classes.

Abby got hot and tired so Hunter was more than happy
to step in and participate for her!

our week

Things are starting to wrap up and summer is almost here.  H finished soccer tots
after a year of playing with this crew.  We may go back in the fall but right now 
we are trying little sluggers for the summer.  

He loved the first class.

Abby had dance pics this week.  3 costumes and 3 different hair styles about
did me in. I am no dance mom but Abby loves this part of it so if it
makes her happy.....

Abs has been talking alot about her cousin, Reese lately.  She insisted on wearing her 
Race to Remember shirt to school the other day.  In the bathtub the other night I heard this conversation:
A:  Hey Hunter did you know we have a cousin in Heaven?
H: Yes.  Reese!
A:  You are right, Hunter!  You know what else?
H:  She is beautiful.

My heart just smiled.  I love that my kids know about their cousin and
talk about her.  Yes, Hunter, she is beautiful and you will meet her one day.

Abby still has 2 weeks of school...bless her heart!  We are all about done in this house and ready for lazy mornings and lots of fun summer plans!  Can't wait!!

klyde warren park

The weather has been gorgeous this weekend!  Saturday we took the kids to Klyde Warren park.  We played, ate lunch from the food trucks and then let the kids get wet in the fountains.  Of course, that was the highlight for them.  I wanted to go before the weather got too hot. 
So glad we did and I hope to get back before the heat hits Dallas.

park field trip

Today Abby and her whole kindergarten took a field trip to a park in the neighborhood.  It was the perfect morning and the weather could not have been better!  Hunter and I tagged along and had a great time with all the kids and parents.  

Love these two

Precious girls from Ab's class

The best part of the day came when Abby asked me to come eat lunch with her.  For most, this isn't a big deal at all, but Abs hasn't wanted me to come all year long because it would make her sad when I left.  While we were at the park she asked me to come eat lunch with her today.  
 Big day for her.
Love this girl and her big, toothless smile!

fun weekend!!!

This past weekend was busy but so much fun.  Saturday morning Abby was in a play.  She was so excited to be the Town Crier #3 in Cinderella that you would have thought she WAS Cinderella!  
We were so proud of her!  It was a big day for her for sure!!

Abs and her friend E....two peas in a pod.

Saturday afternoon we were able to spend some time with our friends from Seattle.
They had been on a trip and stopped thru Dallas for a night.  It was so much fun to see them after 8 years and catch up!  No one wanted to go to bed. We had too much to talk about.

Sunday was Mother's Day!!!  I loved the day with my little family.
Church, lunch, a nap, the pool and a special dinner = perfect day.

I was sad to be away from my mom on Mother's Day but we will all be together soon. I am so very thankful for her and for all she taught me about being a mom.  I am also thankful for my mil who raised a precious son!  So blessed to have them both in my life!!!  Love to you both!!!
