Memorial Day Festivities

After a weekend at the lake, we spent the day at the MCC pool and then had a picnic at the park with our good friends. It feels almost wrong that we have to get the kiddies tucked in early tonight, sunburn and all, for another week of school. The "feeling" of summer is officially here.

Summer is almost here

Unlike Fargo schools who only have two days of school left, we on the Moorhead side will be going until June 5th. The kids got some good practice in for summer today with the season debut of the sprinkler.

My Favorite Shows

If you are a Grey's Anatomy fan, I hope you caught the season finale last night. If you missed it, it is on my Tivo and you can come and watch it! I have already watched the last ten minutes three times...mmmm,mmm,mmm. So good. Best show on television right now in my opinion.

And for my favorite sitcom.... The Office. The season finale for that was last Thursday which was also delicious! The first season is available on DVD and the second season should be available this summer, so you can catch up before season 3! Funny, funny show.

And my guilty pleasure this spring has been my favorite "reality" show, 8th & Ocean on MTV. I'm alittle embarrassed to even admit that I watch this. It is pretty much just a bunch of beautiful people behaving in destructive ways, but I'm hooked.

Happy Mother's Day!

Check out the mom wizard at to see what the average mom is worth! I did my calculations and should be earning over $119,000 per year for all of my mom duties. Oh, but that's the best thing about mothers...we love those kids so much we do it for free.

The end of an era....

I'm not sure if six years qualifies as an "era", but it should. Preschool days are officially over at our house. We have had kids attending Little Lights for four of the last six years, and today was our baby's last day! The photo is of her receiving her graduation certificate from her teacher.
I have never really understood mothers who wanted to hang onto their children's younger years...until now. I have informed Kennedy that if she never wants to start kindergarten and stay little forever, that it is okay with me. I have also never been a mother to cry when sending her children off to school ("better in your hair than mine" was what I was thinking...what a horrible mother), but I'm willing to bet that a few tears might be shed come next September!

Eleven Years Old

I'm not sure either of us new what we were getting into eleven years ago today. We look so young...we WERE so young! It has led us to a wonderful place and a wonderful family. Happy Birthday Katelyn!

New Toys

Here are the boys...up way past their bedtime trying out their new Nintendo in their new sports room. It was quite a birthday weekend! I think dad had just as much fun with the new toy as the boys did. Posted by Picasa
