My previous post caught you up to last Tuesday, in pictures at least. No captions or explanations, but as the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words.
Moving on Wednesday of this past week.
It was the last Gopher Buddies for the year - a relief to not have one more thing on the schedule, but a dismay since the program is so wonderful and Grady Lee loves going. This past weekend the kids (all 100+!) played on the playground and enjoyed a special treat for an end of year celebration.
Seriously, how cute are these kids? Love them all. Even the wiggly ones. Even the can't-keep-my-hands-to-myself ones. Even the eager-beaver to answer every question ones. Love them all.
My heart is still in my throat when I look at these pictures. I can't forget the split second when Micah ran across the playroom and stepped on Judah while flapping a foam sword in the air. Yes, stepped on him. My cousin didn't flinch, just took it in stride, while I yelled and almost cried. Ay-yi-yi...
We spent the afternoon outside swimming and playing... and counting the seconds until Daddy would get home. By Friday I was tired of being a Mom and was looking forward to reinforcement arriving to help.
