The zoo

This past Monday we all went to the Dallas Zoo and had a great time. Brooklin had never been to any zoo and Mason is in love with all the animals. It was a great family day.

Here is our little one playing with a monkey statue, those were her favorite.Here they are tired and hot, but being nice to each other and yes that is worthy of a picture and a prize.
They did great, believe it or not they did not whine or complain about being hot or that they were thirsty or hungry the whole time. It was a great day and we all had a fun family time that we might actually do again. Please forgive the picture size and the quality I am still figuring out how to put pictures on my blog.

Last day of school for me

Yesterday was my last day to teach those little angles and it was bitter sweet. I am sooooo going to miss there hugs and smiling faces every week. I am sure that next year I will have another 12 that I will fall in love with all over again but I never dreamed that this was the place God had for me. I told my husband the other day that I will not be quiting this job, I feel like I belong here and those little ones have touched my heart in ways that I did not know possible. I will miss them and I hope they grow into the people God has planed for them.

How to be friend ...again

Well this week I got an email from some friends that hurt us and then I never heard from again until now. The email was to say hi and see how we were, I responded politely and we have emailed back and forth a few times now. I really do not know how to feel about this, on one hand we have really missed the connection with them and on the other the hurt is still there. I am tiring to have an open heart and an open mind, to try to think like the Christian I am. I really want to have a close friendship again but I do not know if Eddie is willing to forgive them. I know that we all make mistakes and friendships are not black and white. It has been so hard for us to find friends that we both get along with and is close to the same walk of life as we are and that live close to us. I have a few friends and he has a few friends but most of them are much older or work hours we don't or I do not get along with girl or he do not get along with the guy. It just has been real struggle for us we never really go anywhere with other couples and we need that fellowship. I really think this can be a problem for many couples and instead of us having singles sites every where we turn, we need couples needing friends sites so that this whole thing would not be so complicated. There goes a another million dollar idea I will never act on. Any ways I guess I just need to vent and think on paper (so to speak) to try to figure out how I can be a friend again to some one who has hurt me and I hope that I can be the Christian that I should be in this situation.

Crazy Week

This week was busy and the kids are even nutter than usual. Monday started out fine and easy going but the kids went nuts after school and before I knew it the house was a mess and so were the kids. Tues I had work and then a playgroup meeting where I had to sadly tell everyone that I am leaving the group due to work, it was a hard decision but I really had to do it. Wed Mason through a fit before we even made it to school and was even worse when I picked him up (I am so ready for him to be out school for summer). Thur I worked and I had my evaluation it went ok but the lady that I work with really got slammed by one of our parents (she had few things to say about me to, yes I cried to hear that some thought I did not care about there child), I did agree with a few of her points but she was harsh. Friday was run around town day, Brooklin and I were non stop all day- Wal-mart, Banks, Target, and a few garage sale drive bys. Well now we have today, so far so good we have a birthday party later that the kids are looking forward to, hopefully every thing will start calming down so that I can see about what the kids are going to do this summer.

A birthday party and Mother's day

This weekend was a rush of events for us. Brooklin's birthday party was Sat., she had a blast playing with all her friends. We had the party at my mom's house and it was packed. After it was all over and we were just seating around I realized I did not give her the BIG gift from Mommy and Daddy!!! So she got her Dora four wheeler after all her friends left. Mason has had a hard time dealing with it being sisters birthday, he has not felt very special this weekend. We have tried to cheer him up but with out a party and gifts its not the same, some thing you just got to learn the hard way. Mothers Day went well, we had lunch with Eddie's parents and diner with my mom. The day was peaceful which is always a good thing!!! I hope all of you mom's had a great day.

Mom's rehab

I know alot of you asked what cardiac rehab is so.... It is pretty much regular rehab, alot of tread mill and row machines from she has told me. She does watch a video every time she goes to help her with making changes to her every day life. I am very proud of her for doing all that she can to improve her health. Today she watched Brooklin for the first time since the heart attack, I know Brooklin was happy to be with her Nanny. Saturday is Brooklin's 2nd Birthday party and her and Nanny talked all about it today.
The kids are doing well, Mason is finishing up his kindergarten year and I now know what people are talking about when they say the kids change. He has been so whinny and he is so hard to get up and going. Brooklin is doing great she can not wait for her party. And I am getting ready for my last days at the preschool by making memory books for the kids, I really am going to miss them. Well off to bed I go... Good night.

What a joy to work with kids

Today was a testament to why I love those 11 little kiddos. The kids in my class today had an open house and were so proud to show mommy and daddy what they had worked so hard on all year long. After the parents left we went about our day starting with circle time and then potty break. Some where between all of that my two sweet heart girlly girls came and gave me big hugs (as usual), then one little boy came gave me a hug, and then another, and another and then they all came together and gave me a huge group hug (it was the best). Then my co teacher asked where her hug was and one of those angles said but we love Ms.Rebecca. Its days like this that make every day worth being with those gifts from God. I know I talk about these kids like they are my own but that is because I love them all for who they are. I am truly going to miss them all next year and then I will have a whole other class to love on.
