Crazy Busy Life

I have been neglecting the blog as of late and I apologize. I know it is no excuse, but it is the end of the school year and May seems to be jam packed with those kinds of events. Not to mention putting in our garden, spring cleaning, and just busy mom of 4 kids life. Oh and Clark is now cutting teeth! He got his first one on Thursday and I am pretty sure #2 is not far behind with the attitude he has been pulling these last couple of days.

Ally and Emma have a Dance Recital on Friday May 15th at 7:00pm at Hillcrest High School if anyone is interested. It is free so you don't even have to pay to watch them. Trust me when I say it is going to be a fun night though. The girls have practiced hard and the older classes are kicking butt in competitions this year. Well worth your time to come and watch.

Here is my TO DO list for this lovely 10-4 Tuesday morning.

1- Purchase end of year gifts for teachers. Both dance and school. Decide what those gifts should be. Any thoughts?

2- Help in Emma's Kindergarten class. I have missed the last 2 weeks and am starting to feel guilty about it.

3- Figure out how to juggle going to preschool graduation and Kindergarten graduation on the same night.

4- Write script for the MC for the dance recital. Who by the way is my hubby! Which means no matter what I write he will probably change it anyway.

5- Make scrap book pages to send to cousin Mandy for my Grandmas gift to present to her at family reunion on Memorial Day. Need to have them mailed yesterday and I have not even started on them.

6- Print pictures on jump drive for Grandmas scrap book pages. (Note to self--drive is in pocket. Don't wash it)

7- Mail Mothers Day Cards from kids to Grandmas. Make Mothers Day cards first. Buy stamps. And envelopes.

8- Meeting for new calling tomorrow. Not official yet so no more details. More on that later!

9- Go to the temple before Sunday. Find a babysitter. Figure out when we might have time to actually do that. Pump a bottle for Clark. Teach him how to take a bottle.

10- Use our free tickets to Star Trek ( I got them for buying groceries! I know!) Find a babysitter. Find a free night. (see #9)

11- (FOR RYAN) The Yearbooks are scheduled to ship tomorrow. That means he will be getting them and distributing them next week! Fun for him but lots of work too. I put this in because it means I will see less of him next week than usual.

This by the way is just THIS WEEK! Don't even get me started on next week. I am not even sure where to begin.

So sorry I am not paying much attention to you. I wish I could. I wish I had a few hours to sit and use the computer. I don't. I miss my lazy winter days.

I will be at home Thursday night watching an 11 month old between 5-ish and 7-ish. Want to drop your kids off? We'll have a party in the backyard.

Here's a fun teacher gift idea - and something different than the usual mug, candle or whatever. I had a lady come through my line at Lowe's and she was buying some cheap flowers and little pots and planting one flower in a pot for each or her kid's teachers. I thought that was fun - and cheap! Plus something different than the norm. They can transplant them into their flower beds or else just put them in the kitchen window or whatever. And did ! mention cheap? I'm all about the cheap.
