It FINALLY Feels Like Summer!!!

Today is June 23rd and it finally feels like summer. Spring took a long time to get here and then lasted even longer. It's so nice to feel the warmth of summer. Although I am totally fine with the 80 degree range and would be completely happy if it stayed that way.

This past week Brooklyn celebrated her 2nd Birthday!! Sadly, I missed her day while I was at drill camp :( Then only thing that even makes me feel a little less guilty is the fact that she is only 2 and will never remember. Right??? I can't believe how big she is getting and how her little personality is growing!! I just Love her so much!

Andrew will celebrate his 4th Birthday this Saturday!! He gets to do it by playing in his first t-ball game!! I can't believe he's old enough to play t-ball. He's such a smart guy and continuously makes me happy. He's a joy to be around!!

My children are the apple of my eye! I love them more everyday and am grateful to be their Mom! There isn't anything I would rather do or be.

Summer Begins!!!

So most people would kick off there summer by going to the pool, a water park, or a vacation. Nope, not me. I started my first day of summer at the high school for drill team practice. Afterwards, I decided to start the Insanity work out. Insane huh? Today it was only the fit test. Let's just say I didn't feel very fit once I was done. It was kind of a slap in the face to how I viewed my fitness level. However I have never done exercises like this. I'll keep you posted. Here's hoping to making it to day 2.

Today has also been kind of nice. In order to hold our spot at our day care that we LOVE!! We decided to keep the kids in part time so we can have our place when school starts again. This lovely free kid time allowed me to get insane, fold laundry, and shower. I do have to admit, it feels really weird not having the kids running around. It's a little to quiet without their giggles, little voices, and constant toy fighting. But at the same time, every Monday and Friday will be my little stay at home vacation. Or cleaning time which ever what ever.

Well that's all for now! Peace out and enjoy your first week of SUMMER!!

Graduation Day!!!

My nephew Jake made it!! He succeeded at passing high school and finally graduating. For a while it was a little touch and go but he did it with much prodding from me, a principal, his counselor, and all family members. I am so proud of him and his accomplishment and glad to see him finally do it! Way to go Jake!

Three years ago they started making the faculty wear robes. So here we are in our graduation attire together!

Me, Jake and Barry!

Proud Mama Cathy, Jake, and Me!
