For this child I prayed, and the LORD has granted me my petition that I made to him. 1 Samuel 1:27

Last week of school!

    I can’t believe it’s the last week of school! The first semester was really hard, but this semester has been wonderful. It will be hard to let this group of kids go. I have big plans for the summer, though. We’re going to the beach. We’re going to visit family. We’re going to do projects on our new house. And we’re going to sell the old house! 

    We had a busy weekend. Sean made picture frames for all of my students. While he was at it, he made a beam for our bedroom. I stained the beam in the living room. We went to Izzy’s birthday party this afternoon. We’ve got a crazy week ahead, but we’re ready!!

Lukey is 4!

We had a big weekend celebrating our Luke! He turned 4 Saturday, and all he talked about leading up to Saturday was a helicopter, a monster truck, and a purple cake. He got the helicopter and the monster truck. Thankfully Mrs. Peggy talked him out of a cake that was entirely purple. We started off the weekend with Pop and Linda, going out for supper and ice cream. Saturday morning, I let the boys paint their bird houses. Then, they played Splash Face, which Pop and Linda brought. It was hilarious!! Then we had lunch and naps. After naps, Nana and Frank came over for Luke’s party. He opened his presents, and he loved every one of them. Then we had cake and ice cream. After playing a while, we all went to Mi Toro, one of Luke’s favorite restaurants. Today, Pop and Linda came over with doughnuts and stayed and visited for a while. We met up with Nana, Frank, and Mawmaw for supper. Then we came home and got ready for the week. It was a great weekend celebrating Luke, a great visit with family, and a great Mother’s Day!
