we celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary on may 26th.
each year, we take our family photo on this date.
to watch our family grow.

this year, we headed out to the backyard and hoped that no neighbors were watching :)

happy anniverysary to my best friend.
the one who drives me crazy.
in all ways :)


class of 2009

we have a little graduate in our house :)
one of those moments were i am so proud, happy and excited, yet so sad at the same time.

lilly's preschool is one of the best there is.
it is truly an amazing place.
(i will actually miss loading and unloading the van of 4 kids each week.)

i am so proud that she was able to be a student there.
we have met so many wonderful kids, parents, families, and teachers over the past 2 years there... and now we are happy to call many of them our friends.

lilly, we are so proud of you!!
you have learned so much.
you are reading and writing and spelling now.
you know how to help a classmate.
you know how to be a friend.

Lilly, Congratulations on your Preschool Graduation!!
we love you :)


since i've been gone.

i'm in a major blog funk.
actually it's just an all around funk.

a few people asked when i was going to blog again.
that made me feel good.
made me feel like this thing is actually missed.
thanks mardee and susie :)

i do want to blog.
i think about things i could blog all the time.
but sometimes i have to try to get other things in line before i give myself time for this.
