Amazing Wonders Aviation-VBS 2012

We had an A-M-A-Z-I-N-G week at VBS this week.  I had the privilege of being the Pilot for 2nd grade Red team.  Abby & Jadyn were on my team and I love spending the week with them & their friends.  Thankfully Tropical Storm Debby did not slow us down. We had a great turn out despite the bad weather.  And by Thursday (I think) we had beautiful sunshine.

Here are a few pictures from the week.

My nephew Jake came to VBS this year. He had a blast

What Do You Do During A Tropical Storm?

Play in the rain of course.  LOL

Now before anyone thinks I'm a bad mom, the tropical storm is out in the gulf.  We are just getting some outer bands of rain.  No lightening. No big winds.  Just a lot of rain.  So the kids played out in it for a little while. And for a while, I was "the bestest mom EVER!"   :-)

Look Who Has a Volunteering "Job" This Summer

We are so proud of Miss Tiff.  She started volunteering today at the All Children's Outpatient Center here in Brandon.  She said today they worked on charts.  Thursday they will get to work with the physical therapist team.  She is super excited.

Tiff has shown an interest in nursing. I hope that working this summer here will keep her excited and let her know if nursing is what she should pursue.

Keep checking back for future updates on Miss Tiff.  :-)

Does Not Feel Real

Today, I took Tiff to get her senior pictures taken.  I am in denial. There is no way that she is old enough to have senior pictures taken.  I wanted to cry while we were waiting for our turn.  But I didn't. I didn't want to embarrass her.  :-)  I don't know if I was allowed to take pictures, but I did. And I think the photographer saw me and he did not say anything.  So here are a few.  I can not wait to see the proofs. And then I plan on comparing her senior picture with my senior picture. :-)

Patiently waiting for our turn

After almost 2 hours of waiting, Time for pictures.

I promise I will be crying when she wears this for real.

Summer Is Here!

Today is the last day of 2nd grade for Abby & Jadyn.  Where has the year gone?  It's been  good year for them. They loved their teachers.  Abby came home crying yesterday because yesterday was her teacher's last day (she has family obligations today).

Tiff finished school yesterday. She is officially a senior now.  Unfortunately she did not really pose for a picture for me.  She was home for 10 minutes to pack some clothes and then she was off with friends.  She is officially a senior now.  Makes me want to cry.

But, since Abby & Jadyn are still willing to take photos for me, I did snap a few this morning.  I will put a photo from the first day of school and from today, the last day of school.  My how they've grown!!!
