Promotion

Not that I've been lax in my postings...OK well I have but it's summer people give me a break! Why do I think every summer things will slow down and I'll just have more time in general?  I never do, well at least not since they've gotten older anyway.  I tried to remember back when they were super little and it seemed a more laid back time.  Funny though what I fail to remember until later is the fact that they were little toddlers and all that having toddlers entails.  No wonder I feel like I'm busy all the time. The kids are no longer toddlers and in theory that is easier...when in reality it's not easier it's just different.  Yes people there is a difference...how can you tell me that raising kids is different when every waking moment they constantly have you questioning your own sanity??  Tell me!
 
Well onto this post.  I don't think I've posted yet about Ian's promotion from 5th grade to Middle school.  On a quick side note, if they continue to have these 'promotions' will their high school or college graduations mean much to them or will they just shrug it off and go whatever?  Just wondering.
 
Anyway, they have a little ceremony at the school and it's very sweet and yes I cried, BUT only after a friend of mine started crying and looked back at me.  It was 0-V-E-R!  The kids brought a single rose to a parent...most took to their moms, of course!  It was all exciting for the whole family.  The little boys got to be a part of something exciting and something their big brother was a part of.  We all got to sniff back the tears for awhile and wonder at the memories flowing by asking where exactly did the time go with our babies?

All in all it was a good night and special for Ian.  He has a special diploma and got a gift certificate to a Fro-Yo place and a whole new outfit!  Score! 
 
Well and of course school is out for the summer!

Goose Egg

So....here is what I did for fun on Friday!  Had a blast...however I'm not sure I'll do it again.
That is my goose egg...jealous?  Yeah I knew you would be.  Want to know how to get one?  Well I'll tell you how to get one.  Help your husband load the truck up for a dump run and then get a bungee or two and help strap down said garbage.  While working on strapping things down, hold one end of the bungee while said husband works to get the other side down.  Make sure it is either hooked or it slips out of your hand, that way it can lung back at you.  THAT is how you get a goose egg like mine!  This picture was pretty much right after it happened...Frank took a picture...I thought I was bleeding profusely from my head, however that was just my head swelling.  Gorgeous!!!
Here I am later than night after an hour or so of icing it.  I had a pretty good headache going and way tender!
Now you see by Sunday night the pretty colors of the rainbow are making their appearance.  It&…
