Erin Paige Graduation

Well, as promised I would provide a few pictures from Erin's 8th Grade Graduation from St. Jude School, Chattanooga. The whole crew was there (me, Jo Jo, Micah, Patrick, Kathleen, my parents and Mi Mi and Paw Paw). Thank goodness we had lots of hands to watch the three 19-month olds. Their not much on sitting still for long and since graduation included a full Mass, they got a little restless. However, they were very excited to see EEEEEE. They absolutely adore their big sister. Here she is as she is starting to the front. Enjoy.

Erin at Outback after graduation. She is growing up way too fast (check out the pink heels).

Here is Erin and one of her very best friends, Katie.

This is the brood after graduation at Outback (Erin and Jo Jo's favorite place for red-rare meat). (l-r) Kathleen, Katie, Patrick, Erin, Micah

Does this appear that Micah has seen someone do this before?

I hope everyone has a great and safe Memorial Day Weekend. We should all remember the reason we are celebrating.

Mowers & New Swing

Let me start by wishing everyone a Happy Mother's Day (a day late). As a mother of three 19-month olds I realize just how blessed I am. They are three great children. They are three that absolutely love being outside. We now have new things to occupy us (keep scrolling to see it all).

Since Jo Jo has been out of town with baseball and it has rained almost everyday for the last two weeks, my dad mowed with his riding lawnmower last week. As soon as Patrick got out of the van from school this is where he went and did not move until my dad was finished.

And then the other two had to come watch. Do you think they will like the lawn mowers as much when they are actually big enough to use them?

Here is our most exciting news: We have a new swing set (compliments of Mi Mi and Paw Paw). It was finally installed this weekend when there was a bread in the rain. Here are a few pics showing you just how much they love it.

Now for once last picture. I try very hard to put pictures of each of the trips up equally, however, sometimes it is difficult and it is because of this cheeseball (Patrick). He is always doing something funny or making a funny face. By the way, that is an ice cream sandwich all over his face.

We will be going to see Erin graduate from 8th grade Friday so check back next week for more pictures.
