Bridging to Junior GS

No more Brownies.

On to Juniors. Things will be different next year. Cora and Apoorvaa are moving and we aren't sure just who is going to be a part of our troop next year with it's new leaders (of which Roz's Mom is one).
Patrick says that Roz has no idea how much I love her.
She doesn't.

Big Celebrations!

Not only was there this huge wedding across the pond this weekend (that Roz reminded me about on Saturday morning), there were some pretty special people celebrating their birthdays! On Friday night (birthday eve), we got together for Mama H's 50th! 
While the mamas got the party started, Mimi & DG took the girls to the Green Bear Palooza for games, grilled cheese and slushies.
Then Patrick picked them up and surprised Mama H! We had such a great time!
And only a few people reminded the birthday girl that she was almost 50!
Since Mama H and Ella share the same birthday date, the party continued on Saturday! Some of the same characters just a different location!

Roz had one more special person to celebrate that same afternoon. Rah Rah's friend - Cora.

The weekend would not have been complete without the celebration of our neighborhood Block Party! The Palooza (from Friday) left out some of the games and the jumpy house for yesterday's event!

 Our weekend was busy but full of laughter, love and friendship!

Going back in time.

On Friday the third grade class (and their chaperones) went on their last field trip for the school year.

It was a fun day! We all had a great time!

Celebrating ALL women.

Today, we had Mother's Day tacos. See a trend? Mimi loves them!
We relaxed and laughed and spoiled each other.
It was perfect.
Just what this Mama Cat needed.

Cinco (and seis) de Mayo

It was a fantastic weekend filled with moments of celebration! We started Saturday morning by representing Derby Day with these sweet little hats Ella's Grandma and Papa bought for the girls.
Then we enjoyed some cheese dip, fajitas and a few margaritas for lunch!

On Sunday, the fun continued. Roz and I (without hats on) joined some friends for CUB. Confident. Unstoppable. Brave. Girls!

 And Roz was on the news on that night!

North Classton

Today was Third Grade City. The kids prepared for weeks. What a great way to make economics fun! And learn some life lessons.
Roz really wanted to be on City Council. She even had to run for the position. Speech and everything! (The Banker position was considered - but "it might be too hard".)  Happily, she was voted in and did a fantastic job!
("Mayor, Vice Mayor and City Council")
K & R Pillows was the business she and Kiersten made up. This was second priority for Roz. The only thing she was pretty excited about was the name of their shop! And they sold out before I even finished shopping! (We think Roz ran for City Council because she thought she wouldn't have to have a "job".)

Once all the shops closed for the day in North Classton, the kids went back to their normal Friday school day. Roz was all smiles when I picked her up and it may have been windy but it was beautiful outside so we stayed an played for about an hour.
Happy Weekend and
May the 4th be with you!

Before April Ends

The Wonderful World of Roz weather has still been iffy but we've had some great days!  
 The kids played after school for over 2 hours on 2 separate days!
 We have had some quality time with Aunt Leigh.
And Ella.

Thought we were going to make it into May without anymore ailments.... Nope. Henry started limping this weekend and Roz complained of a headache and sore throat. This morning she woke up with a fever of 101.5 and we found out Henry tore a ligament. It's a sick day at our house.
 Amazing what a little Tylenol will do.
