Do you hear angels singing???

I packed my last lunches of the school year this evening (cue the chorus of angels)!!! Friday is the last official day of school for Chris and Emma.

Although I'm still a full-time (year-round) University employee, I'm only responsible for "ME" and only "ME" starting next week. No more running around searching for Josie's cuddle buddy, gym shoes, the flute case, or making sure Emma is ready for the 6:40am band bus.

Even BETTER, do you realize how glorious it is to have a Mr. Mom home during the summer with the girls?

My Mr. Mom can even start the laundry and load/empty the dishwasher. I'm a lucky girl.

In other exciting news,
we celebrated Josie's official birthday this evening.




One of her favorite new toys is this wok that I picked up at Tuesday Morning.

It comes with all kinds of food and it even makes sizzling sounds (with the help of a couple of AA batteries).


Only 3 days until Josie's RAINBOW party!

Happy Birthday, Josie!! That is an adorable cake! :) I hear you about the lunches...so glad you get a break from that. I quit making lunches because my girls continually complained about my choices, so I finally told them to just make their own. They were fine with it and ta-da...no more lunch making for the big kids! :)
