Friends, family and summer

Friendship is so important. As my children have gotten older in the last few years it's been so refreshing to have time to go shopping and out to eat with my friends. We all have the best time, laughing and sharing our parenting stories and wisdom with each other. This was one of our last mom days of freedom before school let out. I just noticed we all have colorful lens glasses on (:

 We went to the drive in a couple weeks ago with my friend Shannon and her kids, we saw Solo and the start of the Avengers movie. My kids already saw that of course, they are huge Marvel fans just like many people. I am starting to open my heart up to what I call fantasy soap operas. They are not my go to movies but my kids love them so much. Black Panther was not to bad, Thor was even better but I finally watched Guardian Of The Galaxy and that was my favorite one so far.
Rob and I went to a Astros game, and nothing is better then when you get sit in the corporate rooms. Unlimited good food and drinks. This year his company got some more tickets so he gets to go more, I am jealous!! Loved all the wonderful Tex-Mex food and the Astros, such great guys!

My fur babies, they are so sweet. Apparently after two years they are friends. I came home one day and they were laying together! Jaden is really growing up lately, eyebrows and hair darker. No more little boy!! My beautiful friend Allison and I, one of the sweetest people ever.
End of Year school mom and kid party at Jen's. A fun time was had by all!! Hello Summer!!! We are already back from the Happiest Place On Earth and it was awesome!!

Almost summer, Mother's Day, Awards


So much going on.. Same story but we are always busy and running from thing to thing. Kids last day of school is tomorrow I can't wait! Drew finished tennis and got to go to the district meet, he was eliminated but it was a great experience for his first year in a large school district. Kids are growing and eating non stop, I think I spend half of every day at our local HEB. They even know me when I come in. Drew took Human Services this year, think Home Economics back in my day. I really loved this class for him. He learned how to do laundry, cook and budgeting. He even helped me make a meal for one of our neighbors and didn't hesitate. He really will make a good husband some day.
So cool last month we went to a Pro Golf Tournament it actually was really fun and we got to see the senior pro tour, it was right in our area and on tv.
Lauren had her last school project on Australia, she made Lamington's. She really enjoys cooking and she was so proud. She really is great at presentation and cutting up vegetables and fruit. Kids love jobs and to help, I think it makes them feel very proud.
We have been having tons of fun with our Texas Family. I just love my friend Shannon! I met her back in February I think. We have so much in common it is scary and get each others sense of humor. Her son and Drew are buddies too and we go to the same church. Its been great to meet her and hang out. We saw the new Melissa McCarthy movie last month and had a great time. Jaden and I also have been volunteering every Saturday at Petsmart with their cat rescue group. We clean cages and let the babies out. Jaden loves it so much. Volunteering is so important, it overall brings so much happiness. Jaden is also earning volunteer hours for high school so it's a win win plus we love it!! Pirate is below he only has one eye.  A lot of our kitties are special needs. Some have had surgery or taken out of bad situation or neglected. We also get kittens that are so cute.
Look who came and saw us!! Lily our foster dog, her new owner Miss Fran surprised us and brought her to see us. She remembered us and was as sweet as can be. I had a great Mothers Day a few weeks back. Rob and the kids took me to the Drive through animal zoo. I have never laughed so hard in all my life. They were following us the minute we drove in, several heads at once all wanting food. The animals are great and friendly but they looovve food. There was slobber and drool it was so funny. At first it was so overwhelming the kids were screaming because the ostrich were so aggressive but they were not mean they just wanted food. They are so big, especially when their enormous eyes and beak are 5 inches from your face. Jaden and I got to hold a baby monkey and otter. Jaden used to say monkeys freaked him out but I think his fear is gone, the little baby was only 6 weeks old and adorable. We fed the giraffes lettuce it was a little hillbilly but all and all one of the best days of my life. It was the perfect family day! 



We had burgers and the kids got me shoes, you may have heard of them. They are online only so I kept holding out, but they are good.. I think the box alone sold me and the flower.
So proud of my girl, today she had her awards ceremony. Lauren got all A and B's all year and got called up for a special science award. This girl loves science so I was so proud of her. She is the same kid that got up at 4:30 am to see the lunar eclipse. I hope that she always loves science. She loves math too!! I love that she is smart and funny and nice. So many great qualities in this kid. More to come soon! This summer I am going to organize and get caught up. I am afraid I have missed so many stories and lessons but I will try and post what I can remember so I have these memories one day. Happy Summer Everyone!!
