My baby is 6 years old today!!

Happy Birthday Joshua!! I love you very very much.

I can't believe it's been 6 years. Where does the time go? He has grown so much and learned so much already. He just graduated from kindergarten a few weeks ago and it seems like he just came into our lives. He is a great big brother to both of his sisters. His love of all things Star Wars is well known to family and friends. I look forward to all the new things he will do and see throughout his life.

Here are some pictures, then and now.

Sounds Like Life

Yeah, when our life starts getting to be too much I need to remember to listen to this song. I really do love this song and it is SO our life right now. LOL

Wow, only one blog post in May?

Bad blogger! LOL No excuse really other than the baby keeps me busy. I usually have her in my arms and it's hard to type one handed. Lots going on though.

Joshua's kindergarten year is coming to a close and we've been busy with end of the year stuff. I can't believe I'm about to be the mommy of a 1st grader!! Doesn't seem possible.

Ari still has one more year of preschool before I have to send her off to kindergarten. My babies are growing up way too fast.

Sammie is doing great. She is now at 10 lbs 1 oz and still has all of her hair. It still stands straight up too. I've been trying to get her to take a bottle in anticipation of going back to work in July, but so far no luck. She just doesn't like them. This could be bad!! LOL She is smiling and "talking" more now and loves to stand up.

As for me, I'm moving from kindergarten to 2nd grade next year. It will be a busy summer getting things moved and a new room set up. I'm kinda looking forward to it and kinda not. The move was a surprise to me and I can't say that I was all that happy with it, but I'll make the most of it. Who knows, it might satisfy that "I need to move" urge that I get every couple of years because it looks like we will be in this damn apartment for another year. *sigh*

Michael and I are beyond stressed at the moment too. My disability check stopped before I had anticipated (didn't refactor everything after Sammie was born and she was early so the checks stopped early! Ugh!) so now we are scrounging to find rent (not even thinking about other bills at the moment) money for July and August. I won't start getting paid at school again until August 15. It's going to be an incredibly stressful couple of months to be sure. If you know anybody who can spare a couple thousand dollars......................you know................hook me up! ;)

With the money issues we won't be going to Florida for vacation this year. Nor will I be able to go to my 20 year class reunion. I'm very upset about the no vacation thing. I've always gone back home in the summer. I'm not going to know what to do with myself. It will be a depressing summer for me no doubt.

Ok so now that I've depressed you with my life I'll share some pictures of the kiddos.
