Mother's Day~2017

I actually got to sleep until almost 10am on Mother's Day!!!
That was the best thing ever! Haha! 
I also got to wake up to Gentry whispering "Happy Mother's Day" in my ear. :)

It was an awesome day! 
My boys made all kinds of sweet things for me at school,
they picked me out a cute kitten purse when they were at the festival Saturday with their daddy,
and Larson got me the sweetest mother's ring with their birthstones and their names engraved. 
I'm a blessed mama for sure.


My sweet card from Jubal.

A card from Gentry.

The envelope Gentry presented all my goodies in.
He decorated it with his own writing & artwork. :)

Gentry knows his mama well.

How sweet is this?!
He said he's blowing me kisses.

This was such a sweet surprise!

A treasure to wear close to my heart.

Larson made it okay with the sellers at the festival
for me to be able to exchange this for something else that I may like more.
My boys picked this for me, so why would I want anything else?

My sweet, simple mother's ring.
Super proud of this, too.

I especially love that it has their names engraved.


Later, around lunch, we left to spend the day at the river. 
I had such a fun time with my family and some of my
old friends that are mothers now as well. 
While the boys played with all of the kids in the water,
I was able to sit & talk with other grownups, which is not
something I get to do uninterrupted very often. 
It was nice.

It was such a great day for me.
I am so thankful to get to be their mama!!

First Grade Awards Day

Yesterday was Awards Day for the first grade.  We received an invitation last week informing us that Jubal would be receiving an award.  He won a one day admission to Six Flags for participating in the "Read To Succeed" program.  We are super proud of him!

Now, we're all just praying that the last day of school will get here quickly because my boys are ready to be out for the summer.

He searched for me when entering the gym.

Can you tell he was happy to see his mama? ;)

Receiving his award from the VP, Mr. Eubank, & Principal, Dr. Kaiser.


That's my boy!

So proud of his accomplishments, big & small.

Last Game Of The Season

Jubal had his last game of the season Thursday evening. Even though we love being at the park, him playing the game, us getting to watch, we were thankful the season was coming to an end.

Being involved in sports is definitely a commitment.  We all know, though, winners never quit, and quitters never win.









It was a great game to end the season.  I'm very proud of all Jubal learned this year.  The other coaches wanted him on their All Star team, but he isn't old enough yet.  That's too bad, but I'm happy he's playing for the fun of it right now anyway.

Walking Field Trip

Gentry went on a walking field trip after our breakfast date Thursday morning.

I didn't get to stay for that, but my friend, Erin, took pictures for me.  I'm thankful for good friends that help me look out for my boys, and keep me in the loop when I can't attend a fun event.

Line Leader

Gentry is all the way in the front with Ms. Alisa.



After lunch at Dairy Queen, they played in the park behind it while having ice cream.
It was a treat on this hot day.



This boy worked up a sweat.

That cold drink was just what he needed. :)

Donuts With Dad

Since Father's Day is in June and the boys will be out for the summer, Gentry's Pre-K class planned Donuts with Dad so the kids could kind of celebrate with their dads, too.

Larson wasn't sure he was going to be able to make it, but he ended up taking the day off so he could go.  Gentry was one happy little boy.


After breakfast together, since Larson had the entire day off, he surprised the boys by signing them out of school early so they could spend the day with my GiGi & Laney who had come in the night before for a weekend visit to see my mama for Mother's Day.

We had two excited boys.  We've never signed them out early like that, so neither was expecting it.

They enjoyed the day "playing hooky". :)

Muffins With Mom

Since it is getting closer to the last day of school, both boys are enjoying having many fun end-of-the-year activities.

Today was "Muffins with Mom".  I got to go enjoy a breakfast of muffins with my baby boy, Gentry.  It was a sweet gesture since Mother's Day is Sunday.

He was happy to see me. :)
 
He also gets to take a walking field trip to Dairy Queen this afternoon for lunch & ice cream.  I won't get to make it to that, but I wasn't going to miss having muffins with him for any reason.

My friend, Erin, photobombing. 

That's our good friends, Erin & Remy behind us. :)

Yesterday was his field day, and today is Jubal's.  They have a water day coming up, and their "graduation" programs coming up, too.  It's a busy time, but we are ready for a fun summer.


The first thing Gentry said to me this morning was how excited he was to have muffins with me.  While I was there, he held me and gave me Eskimo kisses, followed by big smooches.  He's my little kind-hearted, empathetic, tender, loving baby boy.

I'm so happy I got to share this morning with him. :)

Playing With Chicks

The boys got to go stay at Mrs. Melanie's house while Larson & I worked on Saturday. They own several chicken houses, and Mr. Al took the boys to see the new baby chicks.

Jubal & Gentry always have the best time with Melanie & her family.




Also, we got the boys a new kitten.  A little male kitten that the boys named Jake.  Why Jake?  I'll never know, but that's the name they gave him.  It is what it is.  Ha!


I must say that I think this kitten is going to be a wonderful extension of our family.  It took him a few days to adjust, but he is the sweetest little kitty ever. :)
