Hello to All! TGIF, right? It was a crazy busy week around here, but not that I'm complaining. There was a lot of fun "action" going on - but I am looking forward to a slow-down kind of weekend. I didn't get to post or visit yesterday as it was the big carnival day at school. It was a lot of work in the making and a ton of fun! But boy was I exhausted at the end of the day! More on that later in this post. For my five things today I thought I'd share a bit of what was making up this busy week.
First of all, it's the final week of school for my kiddos. One day this week my daughter had a presentation of a book that her class had made and they each read their section and served us iced tea and snacks. It was very sweet and they did a great job! Here's a photo of my daughter that day - all dressed up and shining bright on a gray day:
There was also a "moving up" ceremony for my son at his school:
This means my son has officially left middle school and is moving up to high school. Yikes! Where did the time go???
I've also been trying to spend more time here:
I try to walk outside when the weather cooperates, but otherwise I use my treadmill down in our media room. It's rapidly becoming the season when I need to wear less clothing, which means showing more of actual "me" (super yikes!), so working on toning up quite a bit more. It's a never ending battle but always a stronger focus in the summer. I truly focus on exercise to maintain health too.
On the more pleasant weather days, I've also been out enjoying my flowers and caring for them and I love this bouquet of lilacs I showed you the other day that I picked from my in-law's yard.
\This week has been about peak for the lilacs and blooming apple trees all around town. It smells so wonderful everywhere and is pretty to see when driving here or there. I've soaked it up all I could this week!
I also wanted to share that today is the final day of school for both kiddos and I was able to snap this photo of my daughter after she was showered and all ready and just about to head out for her last day!
she's growing up so fast ::sigh::
