I figured time for an update! Everyone is doing great, ready for school to be DONE! The kids are good but getting up in the morning is dragging. I am constantly met with "is today school? again? when is it done????" and that gets a little tiring day after day. Still, we keep plugging ahead! There are enough cool things going on for end of the year that it keeps them in check. We had field day on the 11th. We had good weather! You never know what will be in May. It could be 75, it could be 105. Luckily, we were 78 but pretty windy. I was at school from 8am to 2:30pm. I had a one hour lunch break! The day was very fun. I worked the 50 yard dash with my two other PTO Friends and the phenomenal music teacher! The kids did great :) Coach Stowers put together a wonderful day and had water slides for in the afternoon. PLUS the QC Fire Dept showed up and drenched the kids (and many teachers) with hoses at the end of the day! PTO handed out 700 otter pops to the kids as well. I had a great day!
We had Cassandra's 5th grade orientation on the 11th as well. In our school district, 5th and 6th grade go to the middle school. So we did the tour, listened to presentations, Cassandra visited the club tables for Battle of the Books, Video club, etc. She seemed less down about the whole thing after we left that night. I am glad. It's a big step for her and some days are definitely better than others when we talk about it!
Mother's Day weekend was great! We had a wonderful breakfast with my Mom, Dad, Brittany and Elijah on that Saturday! We did shopping afterwards and then my niece's bday part was at Peter Piper Pizza at noon. We partied for about 3 hours there! Sunday I taught Sunday School and we did crafts for our moms. The service that day was "youth Sunday" and everything was led by the kids in the youth groups. It was really good! Shane and the kids took me to lunch at Blue Adobe afterwards and then I got to play World of Warcraft sorta uninterrupted for about 3 hours :) Shane got me my Sookie Stackhouse book 10 and gave it to me early. I finished it in 2 days because I forced myself not to do it all in one day. I loved it but the bummer is I have a whole year to wait for book 11 LOL! The good news is that True Blood is back on HBO on June 13th so you know where I'll be every Sunday night ;)
I think that is everything for now. We have Griffin's Kindergarten Graduation at the QC PAC on May 24th. I am so excited and proud of him. I can't wait to see what songs they will be doing! We usually take them out to dinner after and then he doesn't know it but I'm getting him a cake to have after dinner. It should be a fun evening. Our last day of school is a 1/2 day on May 27th.
PTO is great, we are winding down! WOW is great, I'm level 65 now. My friend Shari plays with me a lot and she keeps me going :) The weight loss is still good, slowing down a bit but still coming off. I need to mix things up a bit to get it back up where it was on the weekly loss. I am hoping that with swimming, no PTO and no school schedules I am able to get more exercise in than I had been doing since after Christmas!
I hope you are all doing well,
