One last kiss

 My precious Grandma passed on into eternity just this week.  I love these reminders of our last visit with her.  I had wondered....could this be the last one...the last kiss...the last time we hear her tell her testimony...the final hug?  I'm amazed how quickly she decline in just a few short months.  Now the struggle is over and the race won.  I will be forever thankful for her steadfast life & wonderful example.

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!
