The Busy-ness must slow down

Last week was another full week! Monday was Ryder's kindergarten program. They were so cute singing!  Tuesday, Quay and I volunteered to help with their class picnic. We walked from the school to the park to eat and play, then back again. It was a wonderful day for it, not too hot. Quay found a pink ladybug on his shoe, Ryder had fun showing the kids this interesting bug.  I am so glad we both went, as Mrs. Kaylor was in a car accident the weekend before and she still wasn't feeling very well from her concussion. But she is a great teacher and just didn't want to miss out on the last fun week of school.  We were so happy to help her out with the kids.

Thursday May 24 was Ryder's last day of school.  It was a very bittersweet day for me.  As much as I didn't want to let him go last fall, this last day was almost equally heartbreaking. The year just went too fast; which means each year following will  do the same.  I just hate to see my boy grow up.  I love having him little.

So now we are onto the weekend.  Ryder has been sleeping in and playing.  We are all going to be playing in the next few days, as we are taking a little trip to Minneapolis. We are excited to get out of ND and make some new memories. 

I have done a few crafts lately. I made my mom a sign for Mother's day.  I spray-painted the frame, then hot-glued the glass into the frame. I cut out the words with my Silhouette Cameo. 

I made Mrs. Kaylor an end of year teacher gift.  I bought the little bucket at Target in the dollar section, then cut out the letters with my Silhouette Cameo.  Ryder helped me pick out the flowers to go in. She loved it!!
