Mother's Day is this weekend!!
In honor of this special day, I thought I would send out a little reminder for you to take a minute to recognize a special Mom in your life. (If you think you don't have a special Mom to recognize, look around you. I bet you DO know someone who takes care of people or someone who nurtures or someone who loves like a mom. We are everywhere - regardless of our child-bearing status.)
Here's a fun little collages of the special boys who call me mom. I couldn't be more blessed to call them mine.
And a special shout out to my mom for being pretty darn awesome! I am so happy that we get to spend so much time together. With each passing year I realize how precious that time is and wouldn't trade it for anything. Love you Berber!!!
Go say thank you to your mom (or send up a prayer to her in Heaven). A little recognition and a sincere "I Love You" beats flowers and candy and perfume any day!
Brief updates on life stuff...
- Spencer's last day of football try-outs is tomorrow. They finish out the evaluations with an intrasquad game. The starting lineups for this game were shared with the 90+ boys trying out yesterday. Spencer is starting the game as a defensive tackle - as a 6th grader. This is a REALLY big deal. We are so proud of him! He hasn't officially made the team yet (the team gets announced next week). but this is a really good sign that he won't be one of the ~50 kids who are going to be cut. Stay tuned!!!
- This weekend is the last weekend of lacrosse for the spring. We will have somewhere between 2 and 6 games starting on Saturday morning. And then we are done with organized sports (not counting football conditioning if S makes the team) until the fall. It's almost time to breathe again!
- The boys only have 10 days of school left. Half of Quinn's days are filled up with fun 5th grader stuff. Spencer has completely checked out of school with all his focus and energy on sports right now. It's good that he doesn't have to worry about his grades... And Zane is preparing to graduate from Goddard Kindergarten. He's SO ready for the big school Kindergarten! Last night he read "Giggle Giggle Quack" - by himself - from front to back. Lookout Whitlow Elementary!
Have a great weekend everyone! And be sure to thank a mom! My biggest desire for Sunday is to get to chill out with my boys a bit. A dinner with everyone at the table would be a luxury! And to get a new picture of them all together and happy. Cross your fingers for that last bit! I'll be more than happy to share any successes!
