Last day of First Grade

I can’t believe that first grade is already over.  It seems like yesterday that I was just dropping her off for her first day.  She has grown so much this year.

Meg was excited to get up and moving on her last day of school.  I was able to convince her to let me snap a few pictures of her before I took her to school.  I know that in a few years, getting her to pose for pictures is going to be the hardest thing.  Right now, I can ask her nicely and she’s a willing participant. 


Meg did a lot during first grade.  She pulled a few more teeth, which meant a few more visits from the tooth fairy.  She started in an after school program because I went back to work in an office.  She loved roller blading so much that she joined an inline speed skating team.  She out grew another bike. 


Meg welcomed two new little boy cousins into the family, Jackson Bradley and Parker Ramsey.  She got to see a handful of plays at Casa Manana’s Children’s Theater, including Snow White, Rudolph, Brer Rabbit, Pinocchio, and The Wizard of Oz.

This year was incredible, I’m looking forward to what next year has in store for her.  I know it will be absolutely amazing!  I see you! 


First Grade Musical

Meg’s first grade class did Seussical the Musical for their musical production this year.  All the children wore red or white shirts and had on Cat in the Hat hats.  She was super excited about the production this year.  I love her enthusiasm for anything musical or stage related. 


I video recorded parts of the production, I will download them and post a few.

Memorial Day

Meg, Jarrad and I went to San Antonio for Memorial Day this weekend.  It was the PERFECT weekend.  We left out Friday mid-day, which put us in San Antonio in time for dinner.  The timing worked out perfect since we were bringing some yummy Fajitas down. 

Friday night, we were pretty low key.  Dinner with Meme, Poppy, Taylor, Ruth and Luke.  That night, Jarrad and Meg got in the hot tub for a little bit while Meme and I visited inside. 

Saturday morning, we woke up and went to Wimberly to see Bombone.  After our visit with Bombone, we went to downtown Wimberly to walk around and grab a bite for lunch.  After that, we headed back to Meme and Poppy’s house to lay around the pool.

Jamie, Lath, Maddie and Layton came over that evening for dinner and swimming.  We had such a great time visiting with them.  I wish we got to see them more often than we do. 

Sunday, we had a small gathering at mom and dad’s house.  Kyle and Sheryl spent the day with us.  Taylor, Ruth and Luke also came over for swimming and relaxing.  The Middleton’s came back over too, as well as Grace, Paduka and Hank.  It was an beautiful day for family, friends and BBQ.

More pictures to come from our amazing weekend.

So far behind!!!

As hard as I try, I can’t seem to find the time.  I love blogging and love having my blog to look back at.  I’m going to try my hardest…again! 

I think part of my problem may be that I’m not taking as many pictures as I used to.  I need to get my cameras batteries charged and throw one back in my purse.  I’m missing out on so much and time isn’t slowing down. 

Next post – Memorial Day in SA.  Better late than never.
