Last Monday With Mom

Since Jenna is off on Monday I decided to take our Mondays and really make them as special as I could (I did this with the boys too but did not keep a good "record" of it). Every Monday morning we head to gymnastics then on to something fun. Sometimes we went shopping, out to lunch, got our toes done. Sometimes Daddy was home so we would spend time with him. Today was our last opportunity to spend the day together alone since Jenna will enter 1st grade this year. The Lord really blessed us with a great day at the Georgia Aquarium. They had a special going that gave us free parking and a great price on admission. It was not crowded so we were able to really enjoy it. Our favorite was Grace the Otter. She was so funny and we stood there for a long time watching her show off. Jenna also loved the whale slide and has decided she wants to spend the night there sometime (they actually do that). Don't know about that one.

As most of you know, my life is about to really change and I am not liking the phase at all. All my kids will be in school all day, every day and I will have two middle schoolers. For 14 years I have had a preschooler in my home. Always someone to be with and take care of. What I am excited about is watching what my children are becoming. I am excited to watch the boys grow and change into young men. I am so overwhelmed with thankfulness for all the Lord has given me and will embrace this phase because I know another one will be around the corner!

Happy (belated) Birthday Jenna

On May 5th Jenna turned 6. Wow. No more preschooler. She's moving on to be such a "big girl". We had a pizza, pajama, and pedicure party with all her Kindergarten friends and boy did we have fun. We painted 70 little toes that night and the girls danced to Hannah Montana. Here's what's going on in Jenna's life these days:

1. Hannah Montana. We saw the movie opening night and I really liked it.

2. Her dog Angel.

3. Friends-she is very social and loves all her friends.

4. Taking showers and putting on PJ's.

5. Lost her first tooth a couple of weeks ago.

6. Loves church and her new Adventure Bible.

7. Likes to play her Nintendo DS.

8. Can read really good and does great in school.

9. Wants to ride a horse.

10. Enjoys watching movies and eating popcorn.

Jenna, we love you so very much and are so blessed by you every day!
