Yesterday I attended mini#2's last day of preschool party. One mom made the above cake. If you recall, they were in the duck class. I would get "notes from the duck pond" after each class and everything was just ducky all year. I signed up to bring bottled water (for once I had something easy to bring!), but felt a little inadequate when I saw that cake. Alas, I learned that this woman decorates cakes as a side job so I happily drank my water as I enjoyed her cake! The second photo is of a memory book (snapfish) that his teacher made for each student! We're calling it his "yearbook". It is so sweet. Each page has the month written at the top and a collage of pictures of my child from that month. Then the last page is a class picture and a separate picture of just him with his teachers. It's great. How thoughtful. Mini#2 is attached to this book let me tell you! We're both going to miss this duck class. Now what do I do with mini#2??? I do have a slightly formed plan that includes the library, the pool, playgroup and various parks. Then I plan to sign him up for a beginner basketball skills class in our area for 4 year olds that will meet once a week beginning in July when mini#1 returns to school (year round). He's pumped for that! Then the check is in the mail for his first organized team sport,soccer, to start in the fall. Whew! Let the games begin!
Let's not forget about mini#1. He's taken a few group golf lessons and really likes this sport (could care less about most other sports). So we decided to sign him up for some private lessons. He's had two already. He can move that little ball! I'm impressed. Now his undiagnosed as of yet ADHD kicks in a bit when the golf pro turns his head or goes to move a flag, but mini#1 regains his focus once the pro begins the teaching again. It's fun to watch him out there.
Lastly, my brother got to meet VP Joe Biden yesterday. He's been working crazy hours in preparation of the VP's visit to the embassy where little bro is currently stationed for two years. Here he is (after little sleep)in front of Air Force Two (is that the correct terminology?). Pretty cool. Happy early 35th little bro!! All I did yesterday was eat a duck cake with my little duckling!
