Crazy Busy Weekend

School is almost out and it seems we cram all the fun the last weeks of school. We started out on Thursday going on a field trip to the AGI gymnastics in Arlington and I came along to help out. It was lots of fun for the kids and we were all exhausted after it was over.

Friday Hayden had field day all day and Mason was honored for good character- trustworthy so they got to sit at special tables with their parents at lunch and got a medal and certificate.

Friday night we had a sleepover for the 3rd and 4th graders. They were promised that they would have one if the school ended up being Exemplary on the TAKS tests this year and they did it! Here in Texas once you start 3rd grade up until 12th the students have to take these standardized tests and basically that is how the schools are rated so this year we had over 90% of the students pass which ranked us exemplary. It started at 7 pm and they had dinner and then they could do several different things until bedtime at 11pm. There was karaoke (which I was in charge of), hair and nail salon, video games, bounce houses, and crafts. The kids along with me had a great time. I didn't get a whole lot of pictures of Hayden because I was in the Karaoke room but I did video this cute little boy who pretty much stayed in the karaoke room with me and sang the whole time. He was hilarious! At first we couldn't tell if he was for real- check it out for yourselves.

Saturday we had Callies last volleyball game and they ended up this season in 1st Place. They got their trophy's but the coach took them back because she promised to get their names engraved on them if they got 1st place.

After the game we rushed home, we made treats and got everything ready to host a baby shower for my sister in law- Nikki. She lives in Lewisville so we had it at her house. It was lots of fun and my mother in law drove from Tyler to come to it and help out. Notice the diaper cake I made and the blanket, bibs, and burp cloth that I embroidered. Next week is another sister in laws shower- lots of babies this year! Next Saturday will be the 5th baby shower in 2 weeks!!! I've have been doing alot of blankets lately.

Did you end up spending the night as well? That looks like a lot of fun. Annalise doesn't get out of school until the 17th. So her field day isn't until next week. You did a good job on the baby gifts and the diaper cake!

Looks like ya'll are just as busy as we are. It's crazy! I really want to have you over to swim but I seriously can not find an open day to do it. We have so many class parties and stuff this week and then I'm off to girls camp next week and Rob is at Scout camp the next week. I promise we'll get together soon. Miss you and your kids. I LOVE your hair!!!! IT is super cute and you look fantastic!
