Summer has officially started - Day 1

After a crazy last week of two super cute performances, two celebrations, and lots of weeping mommies, we have officially entered into summer. My little Mouse sang a darling song about growing into a flower. My seats were not the best so I had to throw a few elbows just to get this shot. I cried like a baby!

She was the "K" in her poem about Kindergarten. I cried like a baby!

Its done, its over, I officially have a first grader. How is that possible? I am crying like a baby!

And then there is my Jedi. He was the most darling little cowboy for his preschool performance. His teacher is so super creative that she had them make these cute vests and stick horses to ride into their show.
So cute! Although we would have rathered the horse be a light-saber, and the vest be a dark cloak, I think he survived!

The kids made items to raffle off. I bid on this great western themed mural that all the kids made. I won it! My playroom is going to be sooo cute with this in it!

I officially have a Kindergartner. I might add that he is a cute one too! Such a happy little Jedi. I am crying like a baby...again!

That brings us to our first day of summer today. I think it is summer anyway. (confused face)

We did okay..

1. The cable TV has been officially turned off. NO TV at all with the exception of the DVD player that is still connected because I am not willing to give up Friday night movie night. I am a salt addict after all and when else am I going to overload on popcorn?

2. I took care of 2 other children. One of which ended a long bout of constipation in my bathroom and flooded it after the toilet clogged. Happy for her. Not happy for me. :) Child is okay, bathroom is cleaner than it started, toilet has been plunged.

3. One child crashed into the side of the house while riding the quad in the backyard. Lessons will be given on quad riding tomorrow. Helmets will be become mandatory. Child is okay, house is okay. Mommies, near death rapid heart-rate has subsided.

4. Princess dress wearing child has realized that floor length princess dresses and bicycle chains sometime mesh and require scissors to untangle. Child okay, bike okay, princess dress is a little shorter than normal. 

All in all, I think it was a good solid start to the summer. Now, we just need to work on this weather so that mommy can be poolside while watching floaty clad children learn how to rightfully swim!

Also, please keep me in your prayers. This TV thing is going to be hard, I'm not going to lye. Something has got to give because of it, either my sanity or my mount Everest pile of laundry will only get larger. Happy summer and late Taco Tuesday!



  1. My son just finished preschool, too. Now he is going to Kindergarten. My daughter will be starting preschool in the fall. How crazy is that?! It makes me almost want to cry.

  2. I love all these rites of passage--and I'm excited to hear how your summer sans TV goes . . . I think it will be awesome!

    Come to Berkeley! I am home with the kids Monday and Tuesday . . .
