Take Me Out To The Ball Game!!

Summer is in full swing (with the exception of the low temperatures and lots of rain). We did manage to go to a baseball game on a gorgeous Sunday!  It was a perfect day for a game. Blue skies, sun and mild temperatures. We got there early so the girls could watch the players warm up, hear the national anthem and get settled in. Between the food, the treats and being with lots of their friends I would say it was a perfect day!

Six Years Ago

Six years ago today we met Lucy for the very first time.  I can still remember every detail of that June day. It will forever be one of the happiest days of my life. When I look at the pictures from that special day I can't believe how little Lucy was. I can't believe that six years have past and that sweet, little girl is about to be in First Grade.  Not a day goes by that I don't thank God for bringing our sweet Lucy into our lives. She brings us joy and happiness every single day. She wakes up with a smile on her face and goes to bed with the same one. She is funny and sweet. She is kind and generous. She is silly and determined. She is very inquisitive and very talkative. She loves to get in bed with me every morning and snuggle until it is time to get up. She is never short of hugs or kisses. She leaves me little notes around the house that tell me I am the best Mom in the whole world and she loves me to pieces:). She hides them in my desk and my purse, my calendar and my vanity. Each one brings a smile to my face!  She is a good friend and the best sister in the entire world!!! She lights up a room when she walks in! Happy Special Day to our very special girl!!! We love you to the moon and back sweet Lulu!!!

A Short But Sweet Trip

After school let out we took a trip home for a very short visit. We had such a fun weekend. The girls got to go to Uncle Joe's farm, see all of their St. Louis cousins and  their aunts and uncles at Catherine's graduation party and best of all we stayed with Mimi and Grandpa! We can't wait to see everyone again in July!

Kindergarten Graduation!

It's hard to believe but Kindergarten has come to an end. The year flew by and now the girls are enjoying Summer vacation. They had a great Kindergarten year and they learned so much! The made new friends along the way. They did so many fun things this year and one was sweeter than the next. Their Kindergarten Graduation is right there on top as the sweetest. Their class sang the cutest songs and each graduate seemed so excited. They received their diplomas from the Principal and then enjoyed a little cake with their buddies. They were dismissed early and we went out for a celebratory lunch with a few of their friends. I think Kindergarten was a special year and one the girls will always remember. I know I will!

Getting ready for their last day of Kindergarten!

All ready to perform!

Anxiously waiting to receive her diploma!

It's Lucy's turn!

This picture just makes me smile!

They had surprise guests - who made their day!

We had a perfect day!
