Music in our home...

I love music.
For me, music is morning coffee.
I'ts mood medicine.
It's pure magic.
A good song is like a good meal -
I just want to inhale it and then share a bite with someone else.

last day of school

There was a mixture of emotions this day...last day of elementary school for Ben.  On to bigger things next year as he transitions to middle school.  Trevin will miss him so much.  Trevin has lost most of his patience with school/his class - "Mom, they don't behave & I'm the only good one there."  Poor kid! I think everyone else in his class has a major dose of spring fever...or maybe summer fever.
Looking forward to our summer adventures & having the boys home this summer.  I want to enjoy each day to its fullest!  At the top of our summer list:  learn Spanish!

5th grade Party

We hosted a celebration supper for the 5 5th graders in our area.  It was a special evening and they loved each having their own cake (with a surprise donut in the middle).  Quite clever, I must say.  Lori did a great job on the cakes. 

Trevin is quite pleased  to find himself in this picture.  The other kids were protecting their cakes from little fingers!

Finishing strong...

These last few weeks of school have been difficult....the boys were just done!!  So, I wasn't sure if this sentiment would be reflected in their grades, attitude & behavior at school.  However, their awards indicated otherwise.  Trevin:  Super Reader Award & Integrity Award for his 1st grade class.  So very proud of him.  Ben:  5th grade graduation certificate & Presidential Academic Award.  Summer has begun & we have very big smiles!
