Sac Town

Always fun to head up to Fair Oaks/Roseville/Rocklin for a weekend. We went over Memorial Day weekend to celebrate Paul's parents' 50th wedding anniversary!

Gelato with Paul's sister Julie and her daughter Alexa:

Alexa is off to college soon! She's going to FIDM in Irvine, so we'll get to see a lot more of her. Yay!

PF Changs with some Slade crazies. Always good to get together, but I didn't get any pictues of cute Sam and Jake.

Sara, my Sara:

Uncle Johnny and Lily bonded:

The anniversary festivities began with a picnic in the park in Fair Oaks. Here are the boys digging up a squirrel hole because a little ball from a game fell down there. They never did get it back. But good times!

Fun with cousins! Ashley and Lily:

Beautiful Samantha:

Sweet Jessie:

That night we had a nice dinner at the Kloepfer's, then wedding cake! How cute are my in-laws?!

They cut the cake with a sword, just like they did at their wedding in 1960:

Happy 50 Years Together, Ron and Connie! We love you!

Then Lily got sick that night. No need to get all the cousins sick too, so she and I spent the whole next day just chilling out at Julie's house with Lily's favorite dog, Junior.

It was a quick trip, but so fun!

I'm Procrastinating

I've been telling myself to go to bed, but I just can't. You see, tomorrow just can't come yet. I'm not ready. I'm not ready for my boy to be finished with elementary school. I'm not ready to watch him say goodbye to the teachers and principal who have been there for him for the last 6 years. He has come so far. From hiding under the table in Kindergarten to writing poignant and humorous prose in 5th grade, from tears of frustration to tears of pride, the changes have come, and they are vast. I am such a lucky mother to have been able to witness and share in his progress all these years. He has overcome so many challenges that life has dealt him, and I am so proud of this young man. But still . . . .

Tomorrow, can you wait just one more day? I'm not ready. Even though he is.
