here's lily with one of her teachers and medal.
friday was also gracie's last day of school. we did our regular "thank you berry much" cookbook where she decorates the cover. usually we pick strawberries, but they weren't ready yet. grace had a great year and won awards for academics, dance, vocal and brass instrument (the recorder).
we went out to dinner on saturday night in honor of father's day. pat then took evan out to by some new shoes. he came back with size 8 shoes for him, and i had been cramming in his foot into size 6!!
we had a mellow father's day on sunday. the girls' made a yummy dessert, i made a yummy dinner and jake made a fabulous card that i scanned in, but can't seem to upload. i had planned a combined musical number with the teenage boys at my church as well as my primary children that turned out well. my sister-in-law became "famous" this day as one of her pics was posted on the "how about orange" blog.
tuesday, i was frustrated and spent a good part of the day debating which i hate more: seizures or seizure medication. (felt even worse for jake who has to actually experience these things.)
today, wednesday, was an absolutely beautiful day. we went strawberry picking, made a chocolate cake for friends, hung out at the barn while grace had her horseback lesson, took a walk in the afternoon rain (that started right as we were getting ready to go), bathed the kids, ran to the store and then came home to watch "so you think you can dance." now i'm getting "berry" thank yous together for jake's teacher, aid and therapists since friday is his last day
throughout the week, i've been slowly plugging away at my "to-do" list since i leave for utah two weeks from today. (our plans have changed and instead of going to wisconsin this summer, we are now driving out to utah. i'm actually looking forward to the cross-country trip and spending time with family. sorry stace and caitlin - won't be visiting you this summer. ) summer vacation, here we come!!!
