Can't Believe it's Over

Braeden had his kindergarten program today.  He's DONE with kindergarten!?  When did THAT happen!?  Where has the time gone?! :)

I left school to travel to his school in the afternoon and watch his program.  Hmmm... was that a good choice of my work time...  I lay the following in your hands as evidence... you decide :)

OK, class is ready to start... but we seem to be missing the person who is supposed to be standing in the front and center... yes, that would be MY six year old who decided he HAD to go to the bathroom at the last possible second!

Oh yes, here he is!  Oh but isn't the class supposed to be standing and ready to sing... I thought so, but MY son decides to sit on the floor with his back to the audience!  See the little guy in the back with the blue and orange shirt watching him?  That's Braeden's buddy... found out he lives only a couple streets over from us, so hopefully the two can get together over the summer.

OK, he's standing with the others, but not quite on that elusive piece of tape stuck to his spot on the floor...  the head down could be a problem too... and now two little ones are watching him...

Looks like most of the class knows where their feet need to go... except for MY son! :)

OK, on to the Month Macarena... nope mom I'm just going to step behind this girl in the front row and shoot you evil death glances, don't smile at me mom!, don't point that camera at me!, don't look at me I'm NOT singing!...  think I'll chew my nail...

Phew, we're done!  Yes, I'll go get my kindergarten "yearbook" from my awesome teacher! 

That was our program in a nutshell... poor kid.  I wish I had thought to suggest she place him in the back row.  He doesn't perform at church either.  He gets so embarrassed.  The last time they performed at church they made him a conductor!  It worked though! :)  They did a very cute song this morning called Rock the Alphabet, he sang it to me later as we waltzed through Mickey D's parking lot! :)  Mom was too tired to cook and it's a bare cupboard in the kitchen anyway, what a week!

Lol. He is too cute even if he didn't want to participate!

Every summer my camp does a show, and last year I had a 7 year old take one look at the crowd and literally LEAP into my arms as my kids were walking across the stage. I stood there the entire time with him in my arms. One of the lifeguards convinced him to let go of my neck and eased him to the ground. Oh no. He climbed back up my body. lol

Luckily his parents, like you, totally understood.

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website:

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
