Thursday Tidbits

The last week and a half has been such a blur for me.  We had Sir K's First Communion which was such a blessing.  He took the Sacrament VERY seriously.  He was very concerned after the rehearsal last Thursday night about the sipping of the wine part.  After we left the rehearsal he asked me if he could drink a bottle of wine when we got home to prepare himself for the taste of it.  Kids say the darnest things.  I think I have mentioned this before but Sir K is probably one of the niciest people you will ever meet.  After Mass, he went around and told all the girls that they were beautiful in their dresses.  It was so sweet to see him in his suit working the ladies.  Willy and I are so proud of him and who he is becoming.

After Mass, we headed over to the Marriott Westfields for brunch.  The brunch was spectacular.  The grandparents loved it.  We presented Sir K with a few gifts (his first official Bible and some hot wheels cars - perfect combination don't you think?)  We also seized the opportunity to celebrate Sir T's birthday which was last week.  All in all it couldn't have been MORE perfect.   These moments are what it's all about.  Such joy!!!

In other news . . .

Sir T's soccer team is on a roll.  We have won 2 games straight.  We are definitely not all about the wins but we have been "NOT" winning for so long, it's nice to enjoy a few wins.  This weekend we are travelling to St. Mary's County for a game.  Should be interesting.  Word on the street is this team is fast and big.  Wish us luck. 

Sir K finished up with First Communion and now is pumped for an upcoming trip to Hershey Park, PA.  Like me, this is one of his favorite places in the world.  We have been going to Hershey now for years but we always go in the winter time (for Breakfast With Santa) so this will be our first "official" visit to the amusement park.  He is over the moon with excitement.

Lady E is doing fantastic.  I had to give her a big pat on the back this morning.  This week has been a little hectic with all the Teacher Appreciation activities going on.  With 4 kids, it's quite a full time job to keep track of what kid needs what each day.  This morning when I woke Lady E up and said don't forget it's wear blue day for your teacher (it's her favorite color), she said (and I quote) "got it covered mom".  She reaches under her pillow and pulls out an adorable blue top with little blue shoes.  She said when I mentioned it to her last week, she put the outfit under her pillow so she wouldn't forget.  I LOVE THIS GIRL.

Lady A is as happy as ever.  She is also participating in Teacher Appreciation Week.  They have a schedule for us and each day we bring something nice for her teachers.  She strayed a bit this morning.  Instead of taking cute school supplies for each of her teachers she wanted to take a small back of potato chips for each of them.  We didn't fight her.  Nothing says I appreciate you more than a bag of chips.

Willy is doing fine.  He's participating in a 7 mile race this weekend with a cousin of his.  We have a few local soccer games and then the FAR AWAY game.  The construction is almost completed.  The team told us this morning that 98% of the job will be done by tomorrow afternoon.  They plan on returning a few times next week to finish up the punch list.  We are very pleased with the results. 

That's about it.  I hope you are cruising through your week with ease.  Until next time . . .
