Monday the boys played at Renee's while I worked with a sweet friend. Each time they play at Renee's I'm reminded that this will be one of the last times Andrew and Zachary play together. They are each starting kindergarten and it hurts my heart a little to think about how much things are going to change for them.
Once Stephanie and I finished working we met up at Emilee's school to decorate her door. Honestly, is that not the cutest door you've ever seen?!? Could anything welcome some sweet little first graders better?? (Stephanie and I also enjoyed a delicious lunch at Las Delicias...because we worked SO hard!!)
While I was at Clayton's school his new language arts teacher asked me if Clayton would mind reading a book and then reporting it back to the class. Apparently, his teacher from last year recommended him for this task. I smiled and agreed to this proposition, knowing that he still has not read his second required reading book. I used my great experience with the grin and nod move. Good times.
When Fred came home from work he loaded up all our bikes for a ride down the greenline at Shelby Farms.
Andrew went for an eye appointment to check the progress. He has improved to 20/30. We are so proud. As a reward for wearing his patch he got to make a dog at Build-A-Bear. He could not be happier. He named him Snuggles.
That night we all scattered. Mimi stayed at home. Fred, Jack, Andrew, and David (a friend staying with us) headed to Union Missions. I met two friends at Swanky's Taco Shop for a much needed girl's night. Clayton headed with Mawmaw and Pawpaw for his "birthday date". They went to Dyer's for a delicious burger
On his actual birthday we woke up for our traditional donut breakfast. Then 12 friends came over for pizza, cake and putt putt.
Delicious cake made by a precious man at our church.
