Here and There and a Bunch of Other Random Stuff

Been awhile, huh? It's that time of the year...busy, busy, busy. Does anyone else find the end of the school year...the whole month of May...just crazy? So here's a quick post with a few pics to show you what we've been up to.

Last Thursday, Patrick's preschool class had their May Crowning ceremony. It was darling and the kiddos learned about the importance of the Blessed Mother.

Here's Patrick before he walked into the chapel with his flowers for Mary.
After the May Crowning, the mom's were invited back to the classroom for a muffins, photos and crafts. Patrick made me a beautiful necklace and I got lots and lots of hugs. Watching him with his friends and how much they've grown makes me realize he really is ready for Kindergarten. In three short months he'll be in "big" school. I'm going to enjoy this summer with my "little" boy.

Here's my little guy and me at his preschool Mother's Day party.
Saturday morning I got up and did the Ready, Set...Run! I was on Team Logan's Storm Breakers. The Storm Breakers is Yogi's son's team. Everyone wanted to be on our team, but there is simply only enough room for greatness, therefore, it was me and Yogi. I'm sure I was running so fast that storms were breaking. Not really. It was a great run and a great inspiration to see these families who are so dedicated to their children. Thank you, Yogi and Logan for letting me be on your team. It was GREAT!!!

I don't have a pic of me at the race--but Yogi does and so does Baloney (who didn't run because she doesn't believe in sweating. I'm also starting to believe that she's using her shoulder as a good excuse to get out of anything that involves sweat. Am I right? Totally kidding)!! So go check out Yogi and Baloney to see proof that I was there.
There was a little t-ball action after the run. It was hot but I was still sweaty from the run, so it was all good.

Crush it, Patrick!!!
Sunday was a day to celebrate moms! I love being a mom--I would never be able to put in words how blessed I am to have the three little munchkins I have. And I wouldn't be the mom I am today without the example set by my mom. Who I love with all my heart. (and who is going to kill me that I posted a pic of her).

Here's my mom holding Katie when Katie was about 12 weeks old.
Sunday afternoon was filled with family time and messing around the house and little shopping with my Katie. A great dinner made by WM and topped off the evening watching The Real Housewives of Orange County (my first time watching and are you kidding me?!?!).

That brings us to today. Katie was scheduled to get some fillings today. Which she, look! They also pulled two teeth. Surprise! Didn't know about that until we got there. She wasn't happy. She's still not happy. Bless her heart. She's one brave little girl.

Katie's missing teeth. I think the Tooth Fairy owes her BIG TIME!
Tonight is more t-ball, dance photos, homework, getting ready for tomorrow's Patriotic Concert at Katie's school and Fun in Sun day at Patrick's. Like I said...just a busy, busy time of year. I'm going to do my best to keep up and post regularly.

XOXO--til tomorrow!

You've been very busy. I can vouch that you were there at the 5K and burned up the whole field.

Your son has a great swing. You can just see the twisting and weight transfer in your photo.

Poor daughter with the tooth pulling. I hated that when I was a kid. I thought one time that the dentist was going to put his foot on my chest to get some leverage.

I saw some rockin' pics of you over at Yogi and Jonni's place. Good for you girl! can I tell you something? Teeth freak me out. I'm not sure how I'll ever handle Emma's teeth coming out! Well, first she has to get some. She's 17 months and has 6.5 teeth. It's insane. WHERE ARE HER TEETH?

Ok..that is all. I enjoyed all the pics (minus the teeth). I got a little queezy.

Happy tuesday!
