-Jack had a dream where he met his best friend on the playground and played during recess. He said, "I played with him until I woke up and then I realized it was a dream."
Which led to taking a trip to Paris...
I needed to clean out a couple of things so they (and Aunt Janice...Yahoo!!) just went with me. Wade came over and played with Andrew. Lee came after karate. And then Caleb and Bennett played for a while and then they all wen to tri practice together. It was a much needed visit for all of my boys.
When my boys got to the house it was like Christmas morning. Andrew was jumping up and down begging to bring this and that and this and that home with us. We came home with another car load of various toys. Awesome.
When we first told Clayton we were moving one of his top three concerns was his Legos. I think he thought he would have to take them all apart and reassemble them. He was quite distraught over this. Enter Aunt Janice. When she heard of Clayton's concern she told him that she would pack his Legos when the time came. They unloaded them all and packed them together.
On Sunday mornings Fred and I, along with several others, meet and pray before the service. I usually leave there and head straight to the choir loft. When I came out of the room Clayton was standing there and said, "Oh mom, are you singing in the choir today? I was really wanting to sit with you since it's Mother's Day." Nope. Not singing in the choir. I'll sit with that sweet boy any time he asks.
After church we did a little divide and conquer. I headed to Jackson to see my mom and Fred hung in Memphis with his crew. Aunt Janice fixed a feast! It was beyond delicious! My brother even came. And we got a picture. It was epic. Taking a picture with five boys is no small accomplishment. Be amazed.
Our good friends Jeremy and Lauren had a baby. We got to visit them at the hospital and then we had their girls on Friday night. It was a great time. The kiddos just picked up right where they left off.
Andrew's preschool had a precious program Sunday night. He loved it, even though he's not smiling. He, along with all of the kiddos, was just precious.
Since it was the last day of tutorial we celebrated at Taco Bell for breakfast. Taco Bell for breakfast?!? Yes. The boys really wanted to try the waffle taco. It was a hit. Jack, who was made for breakfast, just did not quite get enough to eat though. Bless him.
-I took this guy to register for middle school this week. What?!? Yes, I did. Since when do they take four year olds in middle school? I cannot believe we are starting middle school.
On a different note, they gave us a list of required summer reading. One book is for everyone. And then there were three books that you had to pick one, giving a total of two books. Clayton read the list, looked up at me and said with all sincerity, "Can I please read all four?" Why yes, yes you can. Grin.
