Mother's Day, 2018

Happy Mother's Day, ladies!

This year we celebrated with a trip to Suncadia for the weekend.  Kevin and the kids surprised me with this trip and after George's karate class on Saturday, we headed to Roslyn for a fun-filled 24 hours.

Four and a Half

G Man is four and half, and you can be certain he's one proud dude!

George takes birthdays very seriously (namely gifts / toy procurement) and while he didn't receive any gifts today, we did splurge on Girl Scout cookies with a candle and song which had him giddy with delight.

Kevin and I spent a week in Trocones, Mexico (a small beach town just 20 minutes North of Ixtapa) last month to celebrate a close friend's birthday.

Six And A Half!

I've decided that I will never stop calling my little girl my baby.  Abigail may have just turned six and a half, but she will forever hold a place in my heart as my first precious baby.

Third Grade Buddies

St Joe's is split into two campuses: Preschool-3rd grade in Issaquah, with 4th-8th grade in Snoqualmie.  This give both campuses a very intimate relationship with those around them and the third grade buddy program in Issaquah is especially sweet.

At the beginning of the year, a Third Grader gets paired with a incoming Kindergartener.  They go to Mass with them, do Kinder/Third activities together, and have opportunities to play with them at recess.

Abigail's buddy is Dylan Haugen (funny enough, I used to work with her Dad at Costco!)  Abigail and Dylan are adorable together.  Fiercely loyal and protective, they constantly seek opportunities to connect; whether to play or just give each other a hug.

I cannot tell you how sweet this has been to watch and what an amazing relief it is to see my little girl feeling safe and accepted in her big new world.

Here are a few recent pictures and items documenting their cute relationship (it's also worth noting the amount of artwork Abigail makes for Dylan on the daily!):

Getting Tea Party ready!
