Today was a special day

Mark's Birthday, Connor's 5th grade continuation ceremony and last day of school for both boys

Today was Mark's 43rd birthday. We celebrated with Grandpa yesterday by having DQ ice cream cake (Mark's request). Don't worry Mom we will have a real birthday cake when you come. ;-)

Tonight he opened a few presents from me and the kids and then we went to Rubios for dinner. It was nice to just sit and relax with the kids as they told us all about their last day of school.

Connor's Continuation Ceremony

Today was my Con's last day of elementary school.. He is now officially a middle schooler. It's funny how it all came and went with not very much fan fair. Much the same as other meaningful moments seem to pass by with us hardly noticing. They had a nice ceremony at school. Connor and another classmate gave a little speech and he did a good job. It always amazes me how poised he is in front of an audience. Mark and I always say we have no idea where he gets it. Not from us that's for sure (maybe Grandpa).

He looks so handsome in his shirt and tie. Could you just cry that he's all ready for middle school and doesn't need his mommy when he gets on stage?! (I way too sentimental/ emotional!)
