Great Pics

Baseball season may be over, but I was so excited when one of our neighbors gave us these great pictures she took of Reed.

I just love them!

I'd say this one was taken right after a strikeout! 

Speaking of baseball season being over.  Reed played in a tennis tournament at our club yesterday and we were laughing that the 2 boys that ended up in the finals are the ones that just came back to tennis after taking baseball season off! 

Reed was the runner-up, but he played some great tennis (finishing up the tournament in the rain)!

I'm staying about one day ahead of doing everything I need to get done these days.  
My talent show is on Tuesday and we have 5th grade graduation on Friday. 

 But even though I should have been home writing a script for the talent show hosts, I went to see The New Kids on the Block Wednesday night.

My sorority sister, Meredith, and I went and had the best time.  Jason got us 9th row tickets, and even though we didn't get to touch any of them, Donnie was super close to us (and he's the best New Kid!)

I'm so glad I took the time out of a busy May to go relive our youth!

On the Road Again

JR's choir had their pop show Saturday night.  It was supposed to be Friday and Saturday, but since school was cancelled it became a 1 night show.

The theme was "Legends" and we were really excited when JR auditioned and was picked to sing a solo as a freshman.

I couldn't have been more proud of him, and loved every second of his act. 

They also sang Bohemian Rhapsody as a full choir (which was awesome) and Sweet Caroline as the freshman boys (which was adorable)

Pictures of Sweet Caroline

It was a great show!

Happy Mother's Day

We started the morning taking a fireplace Mother's Day photo.  

I guess you can say it's been awhile since we've taken one.

They had a cute photo-op at church so we did all the groups of pictures with the moms.

The grands

We went to the Racquet Club for lunch (which was delicious) and then I came home and took a 2 hour nap which was the icing on the cake.

Oh, and I totally adore my mother's day present!

Another Last

These next 2 weeks are going to be filled with lasts.

Yesterday was my last Hunters Creek Mother's Day Luncheon.

It's always one of my favorite days of the year, and this year was no exception. 

We've had terrible weather this week so school was canceled on Friday due to flooding, which meant none of our kids were in school so we didn't have to "rush off" at 2:45 to go pick them up.

And there certainly wasn't any rushing since we left about 6:30.  

Not surprisingly, the exact same moms (except 1) that were the last to leave 2 years ago, were the ones left yesterday.

I will definitely miss one of my favorite Mother's Day traditions I've enjoyed these last 4 years.

The Yearbook

When I was in school getting the yearbook was just about the most exciting thing ever.  I don't think it's that big of a deal now that the internet exists, but I still get excited when the kids bring theirs home.

Kyle and Reed are all over their 5th grade yearbook. It's hard to turn the page and not see them.  But I just have to hit the highlights.

Look how cute their 5th grade picture is.  Reed is easy to find since he made himself front and center, but I circled Kyle in his red shirt.

And look how good I did on their 5th grade graduation shout out.

I never saw Kyle or Reed's class picture, and I laughed when I saw that Kyle was wearing a Hawaiian shirt in his.

But I laughed even more when I saw what they did in Reed's class.  His teacher was absent so another teacher held up a big head of her!

SMU was Good to Kyle

Granny Sherry and Kyle had the best weekend in Dallas at SMU this weekend!

 I was working out Friday morning and after class checked my phone....and started screaming.  

I had texts waiting for me that Kyle had finished 3rd on 3 meter...which means he qualified to move on to zones this summer.

I was so excited for him.

On Saturday he placed 1st on platform (5 meters) 

and Sunday he placed 3rd on 1 meter.  

We couldn't be more happy for him.
