Pre-K graduation

 Can it be true?  Our little boy is already graduating preschool?

 He's almost 5.  Wow.  In a blink of an eye, it will be high school.

Here he is after receiving his diploma.  He sat so seriously and calmly taking it all in.

 He's graduated!

 His celebration cake.

His helium balloons with his diploma decoration that was on his cubby at school.  Such a proud boy and a proud family!

There is so few photos of the graduation because I videotaped the whole thing.  I planned to post the video on the blog, but since all 13 graduates full names are announced, I decided for their privacy and Matthew's, not to post it.  If anyone wants to see it, contact me and I'll send it to you.

Mother's Day

 Hello all you lovely mommies!  I hope that you all had a fabulous day with your kids and family.  We visited and ate lunch with my Grandmom.  She enjoyed the balloon and corsage we brought her.

As for me, I was shuttled back to bed yesterday morning (after I'd ate half a breakfast bar) and a bowl of peas and a biscuit showed up for breakfast in bed.  It was the best peas I ever ate.  I was also presented with this beautifully decorated pot.  It is a dinosaur and butterfly trying to outrun the blue tornado on the left.  (Matthew has decided tornadoes wiped out the dinosaurs.)  After lunch we went to the garden shop and picked out a toothache plant and the trailing plant that isn't petunias, for the pot.  It was an awesome day!

Where in the world is Phil?

 But first, the boy!  Posing beside the mud "artwork" Matthew painted on his Poppa's truck hood.  Luckily, his Poppa was proud.

May Day baskets.

Phil moved back to Hood on the 13th.  We decided that it would be easier, at this base, to get base housing, so he got to move in a week later.  Matthew and I have toured the house via Skype.  The first few days there, were spent begging for a job.  Since he didn't have much luck, he was sent to lifeguarding class and has successfully passed.  He will be working as a lifeguard on post till November.  In the meantime, he is working on turning in his packet with the hope of going back to recruiting.  Well done dear!
