Weekend Recap: Meeting Elsa and Performing in Plays

Hey everyone!  Happy Monday!  I woke up this morning with a nasty little cold that I can thank baby J. for so generously sharing with me.  It's a beautiful 60 degrees outside and is supposed to climb to 71.  I, however, am inside shivering and wrapped in a coat and blanket.  -_- I hate being sick. Fortunately, the yuckies didn't make their debut this weekend which was great because it was an awesome weekend!

High School Orientation...already!!!

Last night, I walked with my husband and children into the doors of a high school that I'd been to plenty of times before--for concerts, for games.  This time, however, was VERY different.  This time, we were there for Bug's High School Orientation.

Oh my goodness!! I have a TEENAGER!!

It's official.  At 11:55 AM, I became the mother of a teenager.  Oh. my. goodness!  Has it really been 13 years?!  The time has flown and I am so thankful.  I have this amazingly kind and loving son who is so great.  He's respectful.  He's sweet.  He's considerate.  He's my son.  What a blessing he is.

Last Day of School!

It's finally here.  The last day of school for Honeybee and Bug.  Today, my Honeybee completed her last year of preschool.  She is officially a kindergartner and ready to take on the world.  Bug is an eighth grader.  Last year of middle school coming up!  Wow.  That was quick!

That was different...

There was actually a really cool moon graphic for the other "O", but I couldn't get it to show up :(
Hi guys!  Last night was Bug's Back to School night.  For as long as I can remember, Back to school night has been an opportunity for us to go and see what the students have been working on thus far, meet with his teachers, and get a lay of the land before engaging in parent teacher conferences if needed.  Even last year that appeared to be the case as we strolled six grade halls looking at work proudly displayed.  This year...not so much...

Happy Birthday, Bug!!

Time waits for no man.  Truer words were never spoken.  Today, my first born turns 12 years old.  I'm so proud of him and the young man that he has become.  He is kind, respectful, sweet, and sincere.  He's an excellent big brother, a fantastic son, a lover of Christ with all his heart and soul.  He has a genuine compassionate nature and I am excited to see what God is going to do in his life.  I pray He allows me to live to see it.

Twelve years ago, I greeted this amazing little person and today, I get to celebrate him all over again.  Join me in celebrating my Bug.  As is our custom, we will have a family dinner at the place o his choosing, followed by cake, ice cream, and gifts when we get home.

I'll make sure to give a bit of recap on that later, but for now...happy birthday to my BUG!!!!
