I am still trying to decide what type of t-shirt the little Monkey needs in order to display the quote:

just as long as we didn't get too close to Mr. Potato Head...
or the cow.

I was not prepared for today.
Well, I am not "officially" going to allow myself to be called that until August.
For now, I am officially the Mother of a son who just finished 5th grade and just so happens to be the best son in the world.
The one who got an award for art...
and for the A/B honor roll...he missed the A honor roll this last nine weeks.
You know what...he has a lot going on, a lot that most other kids his age will never have to encounter, so for him to "slip up" and make a B...it matters not one bit.
I think we have both learned over the years that the students who don't make honor roll are just as important as the ones that do - some kids just have to work harder or struggle more than others.

(Once again, I don't know what was going on with my camera - the picture quality is horrible!)

Monkey's teacher: "Can I tell you how smart your daughter is?"
Me: "Absolutely, please tell me!"
Monkey's teacher: "Monkey saw your car and turned around and looked at me" and she asked me..."My Momma?"
Me: ....absolutely ecstatic....went and grabbed Monkey up and gave her a big hug!
Monkey's teachers were thrilled, Chris and I were thrilled - this is just wonderful!!!
Not only did she recognize our car, but she thought to ask her teacher if it was Me (and her Daddy). I could just imagine the thought process taking place for the little Monkey!
What a beautiful, beautiful day and what a beautiful sight for those who were witness to that moment!

I have decided that the balloons that were given out as a party favor will be given out at our next party.
It was the simplest, best idea and the kids had the best time and it was great because we didn't have to worry with the balloons popping, just with the kids bopping each other on the head with them.
It is the simple things in life, like bubbles and balloons, that make Daisy and Addie happy.
I think we are awfully lucky parents!This is the sweetest picture of Daisy and Addie!
