May update

Since I have been "spoken" to by both friends and family, I guess I should update. :)

Today I had Jack and Mackenzie for a few hours. It was the first time I've had them both. Jack is such a big boy. Brittainy says he's about 16 pounds right now.

I was without my car for 9 days while it was being repaired. Rich had to bring me to school every day. I'm lucky to have good friends who were willing to bring me home from school. It's good to have my car back. The repair shop did an excellent job on it.

We are down to 23 days left of school. This is really a busy time of year for me. Not only is there the regular day to day "teaching" but there's class lists to make for the outgoing and the incoming kids. I'm "learning" how to write our kindergarten grant and have an accreditation yearly update report that I am working on with one of my friends (who happens to teach with me).

Mother's day was lovely. Tim made me a lovely tissue paper flower and card. He and Rich got a candle holder that is very pretty and a g/c to A.C. Moore. Mackenzie made me a peanut butter, pine cone bird feeder that is hanging outside.

I knit a grocery bag for my mother and bought her a lobster for mother's day. I'm not a fan of seafood but I thought she would like it...and she did.

take care,
Dawn

My goodness, he is a big boy! And a completely adorable one, I might add!

Hope you survive this year-end madhouse! And then you'll be one happy girl, won't you?

Be still my heart. I knew you were hiding out somewhere. It sure is nice to see you here.

That Jack is too adorable. I sure would like to kiss that sweet little face. And Mackenzie is such a big girl to make you a Mother's Day present.

Twenty-three days and counting sounds wonderful. You'll make it because you are a champ.

And, you're not boring. Just don't listen to you saying such a thing.

Good morning Dawn, thank you for visiting my site so early. The waterfall is not near my home. Please visit my site again, my post was lost and had to be rewritten this morning. Computer challenged, thats me!

I know how hard it is to lose your transportation, my daughter just went through that and she is a visiting nurse. Her friends came through as well. Life can be so good. Thank the Lord.

I enjoyed your updated news blog. Now, I know you so much better.

Blessings today, Jeanne
