Claire is turning 6 on Tuesday!  She had her party today!  We helped by taking her to her soccer game and Shane came too!  It was fun watcher her team, the Red Dragons win!  

Shane was in time out when we got there...

Sad face.

Loving the jumpy house.



Aunt Jess.

Bee swarm on the field.

At the party later....

Mom had plans to document the party....

But other things got in the way.

Mainly this ones pouting and unhappiness.
It's all about mindset.  Seriously.  

Oliver is off for a trip with his dad, his girlfriend and her son tomorrow.  Mom will see Oliver in about a week.  She hopes he has fun, stays positive, and tells the truth about his feelings.  Mom will miss him.

Last Day

Today was Oliver's last day of 4th dropped him off down the street so he could walk to school.  She's sad he's getting close to no more elementary school.  

So sad, that she went to a lot of trouble to get Cherifer
to sub for her so she could get Oliver after school.

But first she turned in her ballot at school.

And taught a ton of kids....

how to paint rocks.

Then she picked him and Ben up in Greg's classroom.

Then him and Ben looked at bikes...

and made sundaes.


but really gross.  They had fun though.

Maybe too much fun.

Oliver had fun at jj and mom and Ben had 
fun walking.
Yay for summer break!  Oliver will be
off with his dad in the morning, mom will
see him Friday for a nice summery together weekend.
