Some things I'm thankful for today:

1- An excellent report card today from mini#1- 4th grader. Woo Hoo! So proud!


Mini #2's birthday sports-themed party was a great success yesterday and is over!!! Soccer cake, make-your-own-ice cream sundaes and sports games. His actual birthday is on the 14th, but we tracked out of school today so we had it early before everyone started traveling. My fake smile above was due to Mr. Pink filming on video and then taking a photo so my smile had stopped being genuine minutes earlier!


I gained a sister-in-law over the weekend!! Unfortunately the wedding was in Bosnia so we couldn't go. He finishes his assignment there in April and then they're back home for two months until they move to Stockholm, Sweden for 3 years. Can't wait to see them both.

4- I don't have to make lunches or get up early for 4 weeks.... Yippee!!

I could use a break from making lunch. That is one of the things I love about the summer. I do not know why I dread it so much. I guess I feel so uncreative and like I do the same thing day after day. I wonder how many school lunches I have made when you add all three girls together from preschool to high school. That is a lot of peanut butter sandwiches!

I've always thought I would enjoy having my kids here in a year round school, but I think I'm the only one who thinks that! Congrats on the birthday being a success and gaining the in-law!

You've had such good things happening. Isn't that nice? Congratulations to your mini on the good grades and on gaining a SIL. :)
