May 19 - May 25, 2014 | Week 21
Sam's last day of preschool, we say goodbye to our special guests, and pool season begins.
This week was full of pictures. Lots to document! This is also where I start mixing and matching my kits with each week. I was on a long binge of catch up, and I wasn't putting anything away. I had piles off all sorts of things all over my deck and floor. So, I just went with what was calling to me. This week, the water color card and the colorful stripes were my starting points.
Elsie brought home her big stack of art she had created at school. She sat down on the floor and told me her story for each piece of art work. The little guy has been napping in the corner of the couch. It is still so surreal to see this guy, especially when I dress him daily in Sam's old clothes. What a trip down memory lane. Like I said before, Sam is all about John. He is such a great little helper. My dad actually took these shots of us bathing John. I really love that he just grabbed my camera and snapped away. Since I am the only one that feels the need to take pictures, I only get in front of the lens if I set it up on timer. Sad, but true. I treasure these pictures. There really was no way for me to ever get a picture with a timer of these kinds of moments. I had my hands full.
We celebrated Sam's official last day of preschool and after three years of dropping this guy off at these doors have now come to an end. So bitter sweet. We have also been working our way through all of the Star War movies. I am afraid to say that these movies have not helped is complete infatuation with Star Wars. This boy is a Star Wars nut. We also said goodbye to my parents. After being here for a few weeks, they were ready to head home. It was so nice to have them here to help, and sad to see them go. BUT the good news is that we officially had our pool up and running for summer. Yep, they actually chose to go home the day before the pool was ready to swim. Crazy parents of mine.
Looking at this picture makes me long for this view again... I am sure the little guy sleeping in the chair will be running wild instead, but I am so ready for it. Bring back summer.
