First Swim of the Season

Jack got a swimming pool for his birthday and today was the perfect day to break it out! The water was freezing, but that didn't slow him down. He came down that slide 90 mph and would scream and shout "Oh WOW!" when he hit the cold water. He's such a fun boy. I cannot believe he barely has any trace of baby about him anymore!

We have been wanting a kitten for quite some time now. I just love cats! She is definitely going to be an outside cat once she gets a little bigger and can defend herself against Flapper. She's only six weeks old now and just precious!

Jack loves her. He loves to hold her (which she doesn't love) and has given more kisses than Clint cares to admit. He runs around the house screaming "Find cat! Find cat!" The poor little kitten hides from him most of the time. You can see in the second two pictures that he is letting her play with his train. So sweet!

In other news....Terry and Sara got married on Saturday. They had a beautiful spring morning wedding and we are so excited for them! They are currently on their honeymoon to New Orleans, but Clint and I look forward to having the newest Iles family over for supper when they get back.

Clint is having hernia surgery Thursday, so please keep him in your prayers as he recovers!

LSU Graduate!

My sister Jennifer graduated from LSU on Friday. We are so proud of her! Not only did she complete college in four years (difficult for an education major), but she also got married during those four years. Also, she got a job on Thursday! CONGRATULATIONS JENNIFER!!

Laura's boyfriend Bob also graduated with a degree in Landscape Architecture. We were able to spend some time with his family on Saturday, also. We love you, Bob! Laura and Jack played on the slip and slide in Jenn and Drew's backyard. She is such a fun aunt.

Mother's Day

I had a wonderful Mother's Day! I can hardly believe this is my third Mother's Day. Time really is flying by, and I can't seem to make it stop!

Clint and Jack really did good on Mother's Day! I got a gift card to a day spa. I plan on getting a facial this summer.

Jack got me this really sweet card. Can you believe he's writing already (just kidding...he had Daddy there to help)

And I got a kitchen herb kit for my windowsill! I'm excited about the basil, thyme, and sage that will be growing there!

My sweet, popsicle-loving two-year-old boy...who needs his hair brushed, his teeth brushed, his clothes changed, and his face wiped. Don't judge me.

Today I came down with pink eye! I went to school anyway, then my principal sent me home. The doctor gave me some drops and a refill for if (or should I say when) Jack and Clint get it. I was really hoping to make it the rest of the school year without missing any days! Oh goes the life a working mother with a toddler. So, I really had a relaxing day!

How Fun!

Well, while my sweet husband has taken Jack to town to run errands (part of my mother's day gift - a couple of hours to myself) I am surfing the internet and sewing. Check the sewing blog later for updates. While surfing for some new FREE patterns, I found this amazing video. I know it's four minutes, but watch it all the way's worth it.

I love how surprised the spectators are and how the whole thing just looks spontaneous. Hope this brightens your day!
