Project 52.May

We spent another busy weekend reminiscing at Annabelle’s preschool graduation held Friday night and then we trucking it over to Augusta to help celebrate “Jackson Cousin” and his 4th birthday on Saturday.

Exhausted again. But in a good way.
Friday evening was very special for our family and others who have been taken care of by Little Dreamer’s Academy for a long time. We missed Madelynne’s graduation last year because my sister was graduating high school the same night, so Belle’s was our first and our last for a few years. LDA has been a second home for my girls while I have worked full-time for the past six years and it was both joyful and sad to see them graduating from this place of security and love into the whole new world of big school. I broke when a video of the children sharing what they would miss most about pre-k featured this sweetheart saying, “Annabelle.”

Sob.  And Madelynne put her arms around me and said, “It’s okay, Mommy, it’s okay.”

We perked up early on Saturday morning and once fueled by the chicken breakfast burritos from Chic-Fil-A (so yum, oh CFA, when are you coming to my hometown?), headed south to one of my sister’s bigger-is-better birthday parties for my nephew who apparently has an obsession with Sharkboy, which I evidently am depriving my kids of since we haven’t NetFlixed it yet.  Wow, run-on sentence.  

It was great fun and even more fun to try to capture some of it creatively through the lens.  I’m pretty pleased with some of the shots I got.  If you’re interested in all the fun, check it out via my Picasa album.  And viewing it will make #65 make sense.

One Thousand Gifts…

  1. I totally started crying again when I read about the Pre-K graduation and how Madelynne comforted you during it…. so sweet!

    I LOVE that you're doing the one thousand gifts!
