Mother's Day Program

On the Wednesday after Mother's Day Chloe's class invited all the moms to a "mom and me" lunch and show. Layla and I joined Chloe for lunch and then went to watch her show. It was ADORABLE! I'm pretty sure I may have cried a little as we listened to each child say what they wrote about their moms. Afterwards they sang a couple songs for us which were super cute!
  Here is what Chloe said about me...
THE IMPORTANT THING ABOUT MY MOM IS
She helps me with my tests and she loves me a lot.
IT IS TRUE THAT SHE
that she takes me a lot of fun places.
BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING ABOUT MY MOM IS
she loves me a lot.
 
I would say she knows me pretty well because I sure DO love her a lot!
So proud of you Chloe Kay!!

Camping Trip #1

Mother's Day weekend in 2015 looked like this....CAMPING!!! I have had a lot going on the last month or so and this was a perfect mental break for me. Clay had EVERYTHING packed on Friday when I got off work. I literally did nothing besides grab clothes for the kids and myself. It was awesome! I appreciate all the work he did to make this trip even possible. We went with friends the Odenrider's and the Barta's. All weekend we just enjoyed the beautiful weather, 4-wheeling, camping and the company of great friends.
