Oh, it's been so long....

I wish I could blog everyday. I guess I need to start keeping a notebook of everything I want to say, so I can then post it.

Seems like I get things on the mind, and then get busy and forget what I was going to say.

It's been over a month since my last blog, and things have been so crazy.

The middle of April found me in Colorado for a week. I finally got to see my beautiful new nephew who arrived April 7. It was a busy trip, catching up with family I hadn't seen since Christmas, and of course, helping the sis with the new baby.

Then after I got back from Colorado, the end-of-the-year activities started at school. I, after years of not being on roller skates, found myself volunteering to help the gym teacher conduct lessons for 1st-8th graders. I also managed to squeeze in helping as a lunch volunteer.

For 3 hours a day for 4 days, I was on roller skates, helping the youngsters learn how to use their second set of shoes..lol...I must say, I was in lots better shape at the end of the week than they were. I was proud of that.

Then my hubby was gone for a long weekend to Montana to watch his nephew graduate Valedictorian.

That left me that weekend shopping and decorating for the Kindergarten Program and Graduation. Oh my!!!! That Friday was the longest day I had had in a while. But so well worth it. That morning, I used up my time as a classroom volunteer, before heading out to the gym to setup for the reception. We decorated and set out cookies and snacks for about 200 people. The children had a ball. The program was Goldilocks and the Three Bears, and the gym for the reception copied the theme. It turned out MARVELOUS, thanks to other hard working moms and dads.

Pile on top of all this the daily routine of laundry and meals, I will have to forego the cleaning at this time, as my home did suffer during that week.

So we have finished out May with graduations and Memorial Day. The church had a big picnic hosted by one of the families, but the four of us in my family were finally together without interruption or anybody visiting, so we enjoyed the nice day together.

June looks to be much queiter, I hope! School is out and with gas prices pushing $4/gallon, I am trying to stay home as much as possible. Looks like we will have to use our imaginations to make some fun during the summer.

So life is crazy, and it's also beautiful. I am blessed for each person who is in my life.

Till Next Time.....
