I'm so far behind on posting, but trying to catch up here.
I do have new posts up at Parentella, but instead of posting individual links, I urge to subscribe to their blog and read everyone's contributions.
Here are some pics from our Mother's Day. We met up with my sis and her family and my parents at Bubba Gump's in Santa Monica.
My nephew took this pic from the Ferris Wheel.
And I've never seen this one before, but thought it was cool.
Disneyland, but those views from the Ferris Wheel reminded me why I love living in SoCal.
It's also always nice to spend some time with my family, especially my sister. Once again, as always, we ended up both saying the exact same thing at the exact same time with the exact same inflection! I may not see her as often as I'd like, but she will always be my best friend. When my girls are getting along, I see their future and I know how much that bond will mean to them in their adult years.
Last night was Sylvia's spring choir concert. I will most likely write a Parentella post about these experiences in the middle school years. For right now, I'll just say I'm glad it's over! She tried out for Choir for next year, but doesn't seem to want to do it anymore. And that's fine with me. I'm actually glad that she's had both experiences of being a cheerleader last year, and in the choir this year, but next year, I think we really need to keep her extra-curriculars limited to what she does at the after-school program. The experiences are more rewarding for all of us!
OK, I'm not liking the new Compose platform in Blogger. I'm also really really sick of my template.
I have one more event to get through this week, and then things should calm down for a while.
