Schools Out For Summer (you know you're singing the song in you head)

Malik is so funny. I woke him up this morning and said, "It's your last day of school!" His reply was, "No, I don't want it to be the last day, I love school!" I quickly answered with a grin "Oh good, cuz you have 10 years left!" I love that he loves school, I hope he keeps that attitude. It has been so fun to watch my oldest grow up and find his person. He makes me proud.

My Rhysie, Fact or Fiction?

Rhys is at a hard age for me right now but he is so funny sometimes. I have to tell one of his most recent stories. Rhys has a super imagination, and I wonder sometimes if he really believes his stories.

Last night about 3ish, Rhys came into our room crying hysterically. When I got him to calm down enough to tell me what was wrong he said, "My shoulder hit my head really hard!" At this point I usually think he is sleep talking, like he, Malik and Corey do quite often. Then this morning at breakfast an even better story was told...
Me - "What happened to your head?" (Scratches on his forehead, top right side in picture)
Rhys - "Member, last night?"
Me - "When last night, I don't remember?"
Rhys - "Member when I came in your room last night after I fell off my bed?"
Me - "No, I didn't know you fell off your bed, I thought your shoulder hit your head."
Rhys - "Mom, that's wacky."
Me - "How did you fall off your bed?"
Rhys (totally straight faced) - "Well the wind was blowing so hard I couldn't hold on and it blew me right off my bed onto the floor on my toy and I banged my head."
Me - "Wow!"

I really think that he believes there was a pretty stiff breeze in his room last night and the fan wasn't even on. Silly Kid!!

Rhys' Preschool Program

Rhys had his end of year program and art show today for the parents. He was so cute, they performed some of their favorite songs that including you are my sunshine in sign language. Then, at the end they made the parents stand up and do the kids favorite song with them, The Freeze, we had a blast dancing and freezing. Rhys pulle me around the room showing me all his fun art from the year and had me take a picture with him and his teachers, Miss Jenn, Miss Mullet and Miss Connie. We also took the opportunity to takes pictures with our good friend Colton and Rhys' "girlfriend" Audrey. Preschool has been great for Rhys this year, he has learned ton and can't wait to be back for one more year before kindergarten!

That's right, I am one lucky mother! Corey and the kids were so sweet to me on Mother Day. My day started with breakfast in bed, then, you may want to sit down for this one, I was able to shower and get ready for the day ALL BY MYSELF! As if this wasn't already enough, my cute family made me the BEST dinner and we all sat down and ate at my my mother's day present, my new table. Malik made me a cute sign out of scrabble letters wishing me happy mothers day and set them next to my place at dinner, he is so cute! So you're saying to yourself, "What a lucky mother," yup, because after dinner, Corey cleaned the whole kitchen (keep in mind he used every dish in the house for his awesome dinner). I can't imagine not being a mother, I love you guys! Thanks for making my day so special and relaxing. Corey, thanks for being such a great example to our boys. Man, I am one LUCKY MOTHER....

Rock on.....

Malik started guitar lessons just over a month ago and is loving it. I was listening to him practice last night and was so impressed..... he sounds great! He got to choose his first song to start learning, Malik chose to learn Star Wars, it's pretty cute. I am so proud of his determination and his effort he has put into learning how o play the guitar. Great job buddy, ROCK ON.....


I know it seems trivial but I finally have my very own craft room!!! I can't even express the happiness I have!! I don't have to put away my projects I can just keep them out until they are finished and I don't have to listen to Corey gripe about my stuff always being in our bedroom. Thanks honey for working so hard to get it done for me, now his next project is to finish the rest of the basement!!!

That's my Girl!

OK, I just need to post some pretty funny pictures of my baby, she is so fun!
