Out of Body Experience!

Well, I can now honestly say I have had an out of body experience. I picked up Caitlynn today from school - she has been begging to be a car rider, but I just despise sitting in line for 30+ minutes inorder to pick her up from school.... Anyway, she got in the Jeep and we were discussing her day at school on the way back to the office when she pulled out her Kindergarten Graduation photos. Now I saw the photos when we ordered them, but it was a tiny proof, so I didn't get the whole experience in seeing it. In the bink of an eye, I saw the last 6 1/2 years flash thru my mind, and the next 12 years came racing thru as well! I saw the day she was born, her first steps, first day of school, etc. all the way thru learning to drive, dating, and untimately graduating from High School. I must admit that these days I might be a tad emotional with the end of school approaching - I can't believe my little girl is about to finish her first year of school - comlete with a purple graduation gown similar to the one that Charlie & I both wore at our graduations! I think it is cruel and unusual pumishment to make a parent see their child in a graduation gown at 6 years old!! Does the school want me to go into cardiac arrest at that sight?

School is almost done!

We are counting down the days until school is out for summer. Graduation invitations are flooding our mail box, and we even have a graduate living in our house! Caitlynn graduates from Kindergarten next Monday, June 1st at 8:30 AM. I guess it is time to start stocking up on the tissue!!!

Couples Conference was a success!

Many of you may know that Charlie and I went to a couple conference this past weekend in Salado. No, we are not having major problems or anything like that, it was more of a marriage maintenance seminar so we don't get to that point. Anyway - it was an eye opening experience and it made us realize that littles things left unfinished can become major thorns before one even realizes it. We watched the movie FIREPROOF, and let me say, if you have not see it yet - YOU NEED TO!! It is well worth it!

I hate to move!

No, we are not moving our house, we are moving our office! Shin Oak Realty is relocating to a better location on Hwy 29 - more visability and traffic. It is going to be a great opportunity, but I still hate to move. BJ & I have been helping out with the painting, and all the preparations that go along with getting a place ready to become a booming Real Estate office. And tomorrow is the big day! The movers are coming in the morning - luckily I will be at Caitlynn's splash day! Hope the movers are done by the time I get there!!!

Summer is here!

I drove home today from picking up the kids from school today, and was amazed that the thermostat in my Jeep said it was 95 degrees outside! I could not believe it! So needless to say, the my kids are water bugs and with it being that warm outside, I thought it would be a good idea to get out the Slip-n-slide. And it is just a basic slip-n-slide - not a cool one with all the bells and whistles like the built in sprinkler.... Regardless, my kids love it - especially the boys. I think if they could get away with putting the thing in their bedroom, they probably would. They will sleep good tonight!
