The Reset Button

It's been so long that I couldn't remember how to log into this account, haha!! So let's hit "reset" and call this my New Year's post...

So much has happened since last Fall. The Monkey made both his First Reconciliation and his First Holy Communion. He's had two solos--one for his First Communion mass and the other for his choir concert. And I can't believe he has less than 2 weeks left of 2nd grade! In 11 days he will be eight years old!

We headed down to San Diego for a nice little Spring Break after Easter. The Monkey was (and still is) majorly obsessed with the Titanic, so we headed to the Natural History Museum to experience the artifact exhibition. A nice respite from the madness of early morning work and school prep. Just some good old family togetherness.

But not all fun was had away from our local haunts. The 17th Annual Festival of Books was at the University of Southern California for the 2nd year and we headed in to see some of the Monkey's favorite authors. We had an amazing time listening to, meeting, and getting autographs from Marc Brown (of the Arthur series) and Diary of a Wimpy Kid author, Jeff Kinney. Wow!

Most recently, our days have been consumed by end-of-the-school-year preparations, birthday planning, and Cub Scouts activities. Over the Memorial Day weekend, the boys participated in the flag placement at a local cemetery. This was their second year and it really helps to remind them of what the holiday is all about.

What's in store for the rest of the school year? Well, if I can muster up the energy to remember to post, I'll show you what I'm planning for the Monkey to bring in for his class birthday celebration. Fingers crossed! :) So.......that's it for now. Let's hope it's not another 7 months before I post again.
