It's Finally Here!


Will finished sixth grade.

Sarah finished fifth grade.

Abbey finished first grade.

And I shed a few (hundred) tears. Tears of sadness, gladness, and tears of pride and joy in the amazing kiddos God has blessed us with. My heart is very, very full.

And now that school is behind us, we can welcome summer!

(See how versatile this plate is? I love it, Jillian!)

To celebrate the end of the school year, we took the kids to Five Guys for dinner. Seriously, that is my most favorite place to eat these days. Probably because no one complains about the menu. (*wink wink*).

Know what's on the agenda for the weekend?

N-O-T-H-I-N-G. Well, maybe a matinee with the kids. They're dying to see the new Night At The Museum movie. But other than that...nothing! Which is just the way I like it! Happy Long Weekend to you all!

I'm drooling over your dinner. I think this must be a boy. :)

Drew and Madeline will only be a year apart in school also. Adelaide trails a little but not as much as Abbey. We're steadily increasing our gap -- ha!

Have the best weekend!

Amber said...

HOORAY for summer!!!

I love your plate so much!

Enjoy your week! And I'm so glad that now the only thing that makes weekends different for me than week days is whether Kirk is home or not. So relaxing!!!! :)

Enjoy your relaxing weekend! It IS always sad to see another year go by, and the kids get older and older...I want a pause button! :)

Kendra said...

What a milestone for your kids. Enjoy this weekend! Enjoy your movie! Think of my while we're assembling a wooden swing set/fort.

You are so creative with that plate, Missy! Enjoy your nothing. Well earned, i'd say.

I feel the stress just melting away with every bite of that fantabulous burger.

I'm a week behind you ... we still have end of year class parties and awards days next week, then we're finished. Fortunately, we head for vacation the day after school ends!

I love what you did with the plate. Great idea!

You do have amazing kids ... and,they have an amazing Mom! Happy summer to all of you!

Ah, milestones.

Don't want to freak you out or anything, but in NO TIME you're going to be posting about high school graduations and such. Enjoy the moments you have with them!!

I hope you all have a wonderful summer vacation and that plate is adorable!

Jackie said...

I know I've said this before, but I totally love your plate. It is adorable, but I think mostly because you draw such cute things on it!

Is it just me or does your son look an awful lot like you??? He is just so handsome!
