Happy Mother's Day to me!

Tera slaved in the kitchen all day.  She prepped dinner--crepes with homemade cream, homemade lemon curd and blackberry preserves AND bacon!  Tera also made us lunch today as well.   She is definitely the sweetest daughter ever! 

Flowers, card and sweet treats from the kids.

JP has been in bed sick for the last two days.  My one request for Mother's Day was fixing up our back porch with a new umbrella and chairs.  He is also re-doing our patio table to match.  Between rain storms and sickness, that request is postponed a bit, but we'll get around to it soon!  

Our annual picture and daily goofiness

I wasn't feeling well this morning, so I took the opportunity to spend the day on the couch reading.  It was a nice departure from my normal daily activity.  Also,  it was a nice respite to gear up for graduation week!  I am blessed this day and every day!

Fun Fridays: Finale

We officially ended Fun Fridays for this school year!  Fun Fridays was the highlight of the school year for Michael and I.  I cannot wait to see what kind of fun we will have next year!

Playing Michael's new-to-him Lego game.  (It's amazing the Lego things I can find this boy at our local thrift store!)

Veggie Tales and snacks

Ice cream sundaes

Just playing and having fun!

Such a sweet graduation present for Tera!

What a great finale for Fun Fridays for the year! 

This and That

Beautiful flowers

Shopping and hanging with my girl and friends.  Then, getting drenched in a torrential downpour.

More sweet friends!


On Monday, we traveled almost two hours away for Michael to present his 4-H horticulture demonstration, "DIY Portable Flower Press".  He has worked so hard this year on this presentation.  It will sound like I'm biased when I say this, but Michael has a gift for public speaking.  He was one of the best speakers in our room of competitors.  Everyone who sees him present will say he is a natural.  He never looks nervous, although he says he is--before he goes up there.  

He wasn't feeling 100 % the day of the competition, but besides a mild croaky throat during one step, he did great! 

1st place in the sub-regional 4-H Horticulture Demonstration for 4th grade! 

So proud of all his hard work.  We were relieved, but also disappointed that the sub-regional competition is where it ends for 4-H demonstrations, but he has his mind turning about the speech competition in December.  So, we'll see where that takes us!
