Little Celebrations

It's been another busy week around here. With Scot getting back from his work trip, to me getting sick with a sore throat and cold, to Scot getting sick, to doctor's appointments, then back to Connor with a high fever and sinus stuff too. We've been living on extra doses of caffeine all week - on top of Mucinex, Dayquil, Benadryl, Tylenol...and tissues. Lots of tissues.

The first little celebration of the week was registering Brooklyn for kindergarten at our zoned public school. (More info on that later.)

Kindergarten registration also involved getting Brooklyn caught up on her shots. Apparently, I missed her 5-year well check-up, so an 8am visit to the doctor was in order to get her updated immunization record.

[At 5 years old, she weighs 38 lbs. 4 oz. and measures 41 inches tall. That's 27% for weight and only 8% for height. She is one tiny, but healthy girl.]

Shots mean one thing in our family: a special treat. Today it was Krispy Kreme donuts!

On Thursday, I was invited to a Mother's Day Tea at Brooklyn's preschool. The preschool teachers served us moms light refreshments, while our little ones performed and sang a few songs. It was such a fun morning for Brooklyn and me.

(Brooklyn was adamant about wearing her Easter dress that day. She looked darling.)

Love this girl.

They did a run-thru of the songs at the beginning.

And again at the end. The kids were so cute to watch.

The gifts were even cuter:

Next up was Jacob's sports banquet that evening at school. They had former NFL Tennessee Titan, Kevin Dyson, speak before the awards were presented.

So proud of my soccer guy.

On Friday, Jacob had the privilege to participate in the All-Star Honors Band at a local middle school. (The top music students from middle schools across the county are nominated by their band directors to attend.) They were 125 students who participated, and they only had five hours to practice five new songs before the concert that evening.

Jacob was in the yellow band for first-year students, and the music was so good. Scot's parents and I were pretty impressed. (Connor woke up from his nap at 4pm with a 103.5 fever, so Scot and the little guy couldn't go.)

[Jacob's in the trombone section in the back-left here, but you can't really see him.]

Jake's dad and step-mom from Ohio came too. Here he is with all his siblings, minus Connor:

So proud of these kids and all their little celebrations this week.
