it seems like this school year will never end! I have 3 very excited kids that are thrilled at the nearing journey they will take. We have 8 more mornings of getting up for school and attempts to learn a couple more things. I am pretty sure they are all tuned out though at this point. just killing time for now.
We celebrated Trevor and Elise turning 7 over the weekend. With all the May/June craziness we lumped them together with cousin Caleb (turned 12 June 1) and Uncle Cory (younger then me!). Presents were opened, bouncing on the trampoline with cousins and watching the bigger people ride around on Michaels new(but yet quite old) "moped/scooter/2 wheeled transportation". Pretty funny how something like that brings everyone out to give it a try. If gas keeps on climbing we will be doing rock/paper/scissor to see who has to drive it to work!
They are thrilled to be creeping up on 7 years old. I was advised they will still need a birthday cake on their birthday. What fun to be so young and really only worry about whether you will have cake or not. What a shame you don't know how lucky you are until it is too late!
Oh yeah, 11 days till we fly off and have a total kid vacation... I am glad we both have some time off afterwards to recover at home. Disneyland will be a blast I am sure, neither Michael or I have been in so long it will be like a brand new experience. Now if we could just convince Michael that the Goofy character breakfast on Fathers day is solely in his honor. Poor guy has to get up way to early then deal with larger then life cartoon characters hassling him on his "special" day.
