Outside my window it is gorgeous and sunny and HOT! The one thing about the Ohio River Valley..the seasons are so unpredictable! It goes from one extreme to another. For example, we started out the month with 20 days of rain and now it's hot and muggy! Oh well! At least it's not raining anymore!

Happy belated Mother's Day to all my mommy readers! I hope you had a great and blessed day with your children, grandchildren and families. Our weekend was nice, but busy!
So I spent most of the day in pain, but it was still a good day. My kiddos got me bubble bath (milk and honey-yummy!), jewelry (a cream and shades of gray pearl necklace, bracelet and earrings) and a really cute tunic top (which I thought was a dress and I thought that my husband had gone crazy because it was SOOOOO short! LOL!) and a bag of Swedish fish (one of my favorite candies). My mom got me some Daliahs to plant in the flower bed outside and I can't wait til it warms up so that I can get them in the ground! We spent the evening at Steven's aunt and uncle's house with that side of the family, while my mom enjoyed a quiet evening at home with Michael watching movies and eating pasta! (Afterall, she's with my kids all the time! The best gift we could give her is a quiet evening to herself right?!?!?!)
All in all it was a great weekend! I am such a lucky mommy to have these three amazing and beautiful children! They make my heart happy and have shown me what it really means to love someone with all your heart and soul. (Even on their worst day!) I am so greatful that God saw fit to give them to me, even on the days when I don't feel I am doing my best. He knows how much I needed them and I'm thankful that he chose me to be their mother! Again, happy belated Mother's Day to all the mothers out there! I hope it was great!

This past Sunday at St. Joe's was the closing for their Sunday Bible School. Brianna started in it when she was 3 and this year she graduated from the program! Next year she will start in the Parish School of Religion (PSR) program which her daddy is in charge of. Jonah started in the program this year. The girls who run the program are awesome and they have let our children start earlier because it really helps us out since they meet at the same time that the PSR program does. So for one hour we don't have to try to juggle them and the PSR, and they get to go learn about the Bible. So even though Jonah didn't turn 3 until December they let him join the 3 year old program as a favor to us. He has loved it! The decision we have to make now is whether to keep him in the same class that he was in this year again next year, or go ahead and let him move up with his class. If we let him move up then we would have a one year lag between when he'll be able to start PSR and when he'll graduate from the Bible program. (Mainly because I don't think he'll be ready to start Kindergarten as early as Brianna was!) So we have a decision to make over the summer!
For the closing the children perform some songs for the parents and family members who can come. They are sooo cute! Of course I had to take some video, but blogger has lost my upload videos button (I can't find it ANYWHERE on my toolbar!!!) so I'm just going to have to post some pics instead.
Jonah was in the front row, and Bri was in the back so I didn't get any pics of her until it was over and she was coming down the stairs with her goodie bag but here you go!
