Room Mom Gift

I was the room mom in Joseph's class this year. His teacher got me a little thank you gift of chocolate and wine.

Here's the story:

Mrs. Leonard: Joseph does your Mommy like chocolate?

Joseph: No, she likes wine!

So I got both! LOL

Well I don't drink too often, but I do like it. That crazy boy!

Still in Love!

Eleven Years ago!

The Bike Rider

We took Joseph's training wheels off months ago, and that
sort of worried him so he hasn't ridden his bike in forever.
One day a few weeks ago he came into the kitchen with his helmet
and asked me to help him put it one. He then said "I'm going to ride my bike!"
And, He did!
Had a few falls making turns at first, but he was totally riding in about 30 minutes!


Brendon and I headed to Charleston for our anniversary a few weeks ago.
There are some pictures below. It's always beautiful there! There were tons of weddings taking place at every church in town that weekend. It was so sweet and romantic! We ate at Fig on Friday and it was yummy! We took a walking tour one day and went to Middleton plantation another. The house you see is not the plantation, that was destroyed mostly by fire in the war and finally an earthquake took it totally out. The house is the gentlemens place. Poor things, I really have no idea how they managed in such tight quarters. We toured the house and gardens and also took a carriage ride around the estate and Sir Ian McKellen was on our carriage (Gandolf in Lord of the Rings!) I will confess I had no idea who he was, but when we got off the carriage Brendon told me! Of course I had to call and check on the rascals when I got the chance! It was a nice weekend!

Update coming soon!

This is the last week of school and we are running around trying to tie up loose ends. I'm the room mom in Joseph's class and so have some xtra things going on with that as well.
Brendon and I went to Charleston a couple of weekends ago to celebrate our 11th anniversary.
Last weekend we were up at Mom and Dad's lake house.
We are looking forward to having some unscheduled free time this summer!
I will soon have time to post some picutres.

Family Fun Fest Day in the Park!

We went to Family Fun Fest today which was put on by the school. We stood in line
to have our faces painted! (like 1.5 hours!)
It was worth it! They look awesome and the kids are thrilled!
Take a look!
