HELP! School's out

Yesterday was the last day of school. YIKES! Summer - again - already? I can't believe it. Ryanna is very excited to have her very first boy teacher Mr. Cook. Brayden is excited for first grade. His teacher is Ryanna's favorite teacher of all Mrs. McCormick. I think both of these teachers will be great so now I can sit back, relax and enjoy the summer RIGHT? Yeah right. I'm still trying to convince myself.
So last night Ryanna had her first boy/girl end of school party. She had me write on the invitations END OF SCHOOL IT'S TIME FOR KIDS TO RULE! There were 10 kids, 4 boys and 6 girls. They ate pizza, played outside, watched a movie, had a pillow fight ate candy and popcorn and most of all had fun. Ryan was so for the party and then he ended up going to graduation and getting out of it. I'm glad he could go support his youngest brother Riker. By the way Congrats Riker we love ya!

I would like to tell my mom "HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY" and let her know how much I love her. I feel so blessed to call her "mom" She is so funny, she can make anyone laugh and not just any laugh she has a great sense of humor. She is also a good grandma to my kids. Thanks mom for being "you" and all you do for us. WE LOVE YOU!

Now for my mother's day. Ryanna made me a keychain at school and a Mother's Day booklet. Here is one page from it: ONLY ONE MOTHER
M any things you do for me.
O ne person that understands.
T housands of people but only you.
H ere when I fall.
E veryone would want a mom like you.
R eady to face anything.
She also wrote a Mother's Day essay and won first place. I still need to get a copy of it. She won me a rose (it is beautiful) Thanks Ryanna I love you!

Brayden made me a picture it has his handprint and a cut out heart in the middle of it with a stem like a flower. Then there is a poem:

A "piece of me
I give to you.
I painted this flower
to say, "I love you."

The heart is you.
The hand is me.
To show we are friends-
The best there can be.

I hope you will save it
And look back someday
At the flower we shared
On your special day.

Thank you Brayden. I love you too!

All you mother's out there have a HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!
