First Grade ~ Almost Over!

I can hardly believe our baby only has a day and a half left of first grade.

It has truly been a wonderful year.

He was blessed with a terrific teacher, Mrs. Stacey.
He has grown so much this year academically and socially.

I am just so very proud of our very sweet, smart, funny and unique 7-year-old.

We love you Griffin Michael ... you bring joy and happiness to our lives each and every day.

Outdoor Shower!

With two active dogs in the house it has become all too apparent we needed a way to bathe them outside.

The water out of the water hose is waaaay too cold for that ... so Mike created an outdoor shower for us with both hot and cold water!

I am always in awe of Mike's ability to create whatever we need for our home.

I enjoyed watching him at Home Depot picking this and that out knowing he had a plan in mind

All of the pieces looked pretty confusing to me ... it was like a puzzle.

I can tell you bathing the boys on Monday was actually quite fun ... I got soaked ... with warm water and it was okay.

Please take the time this weekend to give thanks and remember the past & present armed forces for fighting to give us the freedoms we have.

On a personal note thank you to my brother-in-law Gunnery Sergeant Kevin Glave for your many years of service in the Marines.

Be sure to check out this Monday's "Today Show".

The Quantico Marine Corps Party Band (of which Kevin is a member/leader) is performing at the start of the 4th hour with Kathy Lee and Hoda.

Teacher Appreciation Gift.

It is Teacher Appreciation Week ... we've put together a photo album for Griffin's teacher to say thank you. Each child wrote a thank you note, a single word to describe her or they drew a picture. Then we put their creation along with their picture in a sweet little photo album. This is Griffin's page. The kids will present it to her tomorrow morning.
