We can now say, with raising two boys, we have had our first health emergency due to playing too hard. Adam was playing at Charlie's house, and the two of them were so excited coming down the stairs because we were talking about going to the pool for the first time this summer. As Adam approached the bottom of the stairs, he squatted really low and jumped up really fast, I believe to jump off the 2nd step. As he jumped up, he hit his head VERY hard on the corner of the banister. OUCH! It was bleeding immediately, so my friend Jenni ran quickly upstairs to get a washcloth as I stayed with Adam. The wound began to clot pretty quickly, so the bleeding wasn't so bad. I was afraid his hair was getting caught in it and that's why it was not bleeding as much.

Ben completed his second triathlon on June 7th! We are so proud of him! He shaved 45 minutes off his last finish time, coming in this year at 3hr 41min. Our neighbor, Rob, was Ben's canoe partner. Rob finished the triathlon in 3hr 10min. Way to go boys!

Well, since I'm finally catching up on some posts from way back when, I might as well throw in a post on Mother's Day. I had an awesome day from two awesome little boys. After church, I was treated to lunch at Waffle House - YUM! Then I got to take it easy all day, and it was fabulous. I sure love my boys!!

Adam had such a great year at school! Ms. Judy and Ms. Michelle will truly be missed this summer and next year. Adam loved going to school, and he would actually talk about it on the way home, as well. At first, he had no interest in doing the "artsy" activities, and I don't think he ever put his hands in the colored sand boxes. But by the end of the year, we did receive a binder of his artwork that will be cherished forever. Adam would always talk about his friends at school, so I'm hoping we can get together with some of the kids over the summer. Unfortunately, Adam won't return to Sonlight next year as we are moving him to the preschool at our church, Kids' Academy. We will miss Sonlight!

As the school year came to a close this year, so did piano lessons. For the summer, that is. And as my first challenge ever to my students, we held a recital at the end of May. It was a great success! I am so proud of all my students - everyone memorized three pieces to play, and they all did a great job performing! I've really enjoyed teaching my girls this year, and I look forward to seeing them come back in September.
