School's out

It is hard to believe that School is out already.  I imagine that my sisters are having a very emotional day today 2 of my Nephews are graduating in the morning.  Tomorrow is going to be a wonderful day of celebrating these to young men, it seems like yesterday they were sitting in high chairs and eating Ice cream cones at mom's house.

My Mary finished Kindergarten winning the distinguished character award for her class, she is looking forward to first grade especially since she will still see her teachers when she walks Jamie to Pre- K. 

The pool is up and ready for use in fact we have already been in it a couple of times, now if I can make the girls understand that we cannot buy from the Ice cream truck every time one drives by we will be all set. 

If you need sun screen the anew really does help to reverse skin damage (my mom swears by it) and the skin so soft works great at protecting you from the sun and the bugs, my girls really like the one that goes on blue.  You can even get free shipping with the code:  FSMAY3

Authors Tea

Today was the Authors Tea party at Mary's School.  Each of the kids wrote a small paragraph and then read it to the parents.   They all did a great job, it really amazes me how much they are learning in Kindergarten.  I think we only learned letters and numbers not reading and writing.

We are settling in to dog ownership now he is still having a little trouble adjusting at night but other than that we are getting along just fine.  The hardest part is keeping the kids out of his crate.

Sweet Louie

After 4 years we have decided to get another dog.  He is a seven year old Chocolate lab.  Very sweet and pretty calm unfortunately he is afraid of stairs and we have a split level house.  My new morning routine includes coaxing a 90lb dog down the stairs every morning to go outside.  He seemed really smart when we first got him picked up playing Frisbee right off the bat.  He loves the girls as much as they love him and is a great kid  herder every time one of them would start to wonder away at my Mother-in-laws he would quickly turn them back to us.

Getting back to normal

The holiday's are over and now it is time to get back to normal (if there is such a thing). 

We spent Christmas with my in-laws this year, the weather was beautiful though not really Christmas like.  I think it hit 80 on Christmas, the girls loved to play with there little cousin and seeing that side of the family seems we just don't make it down to see them nearly enough.  Mary being in school makes it even harder than before.

We are working on Mary's 100 day project for school now that would seem to be easy using 100 items for an art project.  She did make the 100 club shortly before Christmas break so she gets to go to the party and assembly.  I can't wait to see her get her certificate.

Avon has some new products coming out for kids part of the Naturals line the girls love it, and the bathroom smells kinda like fruit salad when they get out of the tub.

My Mom had knee replacement surgery a couple of weeks ago she is back home now,  This is the second knee and she is doing great with her recovery we keep teasing all the kids that they won't be able to keep up with her this summer.
