13 Years Ago TODAY -

Chuck popped the BIG question!! Here we are my sorority sister's wedding. He proposed right before we were supposed to go down to the wedding. He was sitting in a chair in the corner of the hotel room while I got ready and I asked him if he was ok. He was looking a little nervous. Then he popped the question. His big joke is that I said "Oh my make-up!" since I had just gotten ready for the wedding and then had tears streaming down my face when he proposed.

I can't believe it has been 13 years!! This August we'll celebrate 12 years of marriage!

June Stamp Class Project

I'm going to miss this stamp set. WILD ABOUT YOU ended up on the SU! Retiring List. I knew I wanted to use it for June's stamp class. When I saw the Faux Alligator Technique, I knew it would go great with it! Love that little alligator! We used some of the "Good Morning Sunshine" Designer Paper too since its retiring also - too many good things leaving the catalog! :( Of course, we had to layer it on Kiwi Kiss cardstock. Gonna miss those In-Colors too! (The new ones are super cool though, so I'm sure I'll get over it!) lol

We did another project using some of the same items. I'll get that posted this week - hopefully! Summer Break is here and life is getting busy!

Last Day of First Grade!

Kayley's last day of First Grade with some of her classmates. The kids had an ice cream social and then watched "Monsters Inc". They also had fun playing games and signing yearbooks.
Kayley hates it, but I always make her take a picture in front of school on the First Day and the Last Day! She'll like it when she's older!! :)

Awards Day for Kayley!!

We are so proud of Kayley! Wednesday was the 1st Grade Awards Assembly. We were surprised to find out she had the Most Points for Accelerated Reader for her class!! Way to go my little book worm!

She also got a Citizenship Award and Perfect Attendance for the 3rd Trimester and the Year!!

We are so proud of her hardwork this year! I still remember her comments at the beginning of the year when she was talking to my mom on the phone. She told her that "This year is going to be very hard - first grade is hardwork!"

Here is a picture of her First Grade class. She had an awesome and crazy teacher - Mr. Maglinte. The kids love him and we've gotten to know him also. He's a great guy! We're so blessed Kayley got to have him as a teacher.

Today is the last day of school - I'm off to help with the Ice Cream Social!! This year just flew by - I can't believe my baby will be in 2nd Grade next year. It feels like she just started Kinder yesterday. Was it coindidence that when I started typing this post the Abba song "Slipping Through My Fingers" came on???

I am wearing a pair of shoes.
They are ugly shoes.
Uncomfortable shoes.
I hate my shoes.
Each day I wear them, and each day I wish I had another pair.
Some days my shoes hurt so bad that I do not think I can take another step.
Yet, I continue to wear them.
I get funny looks wearing these shoes.
They are looks of sympathy.
I can tell in others eyes that they are glad they are my shoes and not theirs.
They never talk about my shoes.
To learn how awful my shoes are might make them uncomfortable.
To truly understand these shoes you must walk in them.
But, once you put them on, you can never take them off.
I now realize that I am not the only one who wears these shoes. There are many pairs in this world.
Some woman are like me and ache daily as they try and walk in them.
Some have learned how to walk in them so they don't hurt quite as much.
Some have worn the shoes so long that days will go by before they think about how much they hurt.
No woman deserves to wear these shoes.
Yet, because of these shoes I am a stronger woman.
These shoes have given me the strength to face anything.
They have made me who I am.
I will forever walk in the shoes of a woman who has lost a child.
