As promised another day of photos then I’m off to turn on the lawn tractor. Finally seeing some green grass!! :) Would you believe we are under fire warnings? Dry, dry, dry out there. I have been watering every chance I get, but the ground under the lawn is still crunchy. Crazy!
I love to cook dinner for my husband. Even better when it is nice and we can sit outside. One day we’ll be drama free and I’ll have the time to do this every night.
Emily’s 6th Grade Celebration was Friday. Our girl was absolutely stunning. She made a very appropriate dress choice (very proud…some were very short). We got up at 6:30am to do hair, nails, etc. She was so happy…. very excited about going on to Middle School.
There were presentations, awards, singing and then lei’s and handshakes.
She was so surprised…. Homer and Lucas met her walking out with bouquets of flowers. I had picked one up for the boys and Homer showed up with one of his own. We all love our princess so much.
And there they are (half of them) officially out of 6th grade.
Again, Elijah couldn’t come. He was in finals as this was at 10:30am. Olivia wanted to stay with her class and friends.
We did so many photo shoots with so many pretty girls. These are three of her best friends.
The other girls were messing around with “duck lips” and there she is sitting perfectly with her flowers looking like she just won the Ms. America crown. :)
There were cakes made for each of the three classes and a wonderful buffet of meats, cheeses, etc. to make your own sandwiches.
And one last shot in front of the net. I don’t think U-Park has ever strayed from the tropical theme although this year it seemed half the girls were dressed in black & white so maybe they might want to consider it. I’m so looking forward to the next few years of giggling girls and boyfriends and teenage drama. I think we are going to have some fun.
After spending a lot of time with Emily we headed out to Olivia’s picnic. We didn’t eat again, but did say hello.
She was doing her best to have fun. She’s still running a low grade temperature.
Both girls wanted to stay and ride the bus home for one last time. The boys and I headed back to the house.
And Saturday…. Elijah had a baseball game out in North Pole against Eielson. We 10-runned them in the 5th. Elijah didn’t take the field this game and played as designated hitter.
He walked twice, one hard hit to 2nd that was bobbled and a hit to third that was fielder’s choice so he was on 4-for-4 scoring a couple of those. It was one sunny day. Nice.
Well, tomorrow is the big “trial” deciding custody of Elijah and Emily. This has been one trip to the courthouse after another since November of 2010…..18 months of hearing, filings and endless papers. It will be what it is, but it sure will be nice to have this particular elephant off my back. I’ll still be carrying a giraffe and a few zebras that I have to deal with, but I’m sure (please Lord) that my stress levels will go down.
They have to.
