Kindergarten Graduations and Mother’s Day

I have been absent the last few weeks, but it’s not because I haven’t wanted to write, it’s because I just haven’t had time! I can give you a million excuses, but here are just a few.

I have been planning my sons Kindergarten Graduation. While I am so excited to see him ‘graduate’ and wear his little homemade graduation hat and stand with his classmates, I have to wonder, if planning a graduation for 50 six year olds requires this much planning and detail, how much detail goes into a high school graduation ceremony? I better start planning now!

My kiddos also had an entire week off from school the last week of April and the week they were home I tried to sit down, many, many times and blog, but somehow I always got interrupted. My favorite interruption was the one where my middle son came to inform me that my youngest son had pooped in the garage. My youngest son has been potty trained since October, mind you, but apparently he wanted to try out the garage instead!

What happened? It goes like this. This fellow left his home Wi-Fi network unprotected, and a really bad neighbor piggy-backed on his "free" wireless network to visit thousands of child pornography images.

Breckinridge Rezfest – Mercy Me

Wow! What a night at Breckinridge! If you didn't make it to the Rezfest this year, put it on your to do list for next year. The artists put on an awesome show. Kids, teenagers, adults, grandparents - all ages were there. 3,425 people attended.

At the start of the concert, there were fireworks and the National Anthem was sung. Glen Dry then announced that different youth groups came out the night before and prayed in each row of seats for the people that were there tonight. I thought to myself how moving it is that our youth did that.

If you have a little one, you will definitely want to read this.

I believe birthday parties are more important than holidays because it's that one day out of the year to celebrate just them and make them feel extra-special. I have a seven year old boy so we have had many birthday parties at different places over the years. Every year I look for somewhere better than last year. The best part about having the party away from the house is there is no clean up. Here are a few places below you could host your child's birthday party.
