Have a happy, smiley Trinity Sunday, y'all!

Thanks, Haley, for giving me blog fodder...and another moniker for your dad!Grumps, you are going to love this! Today in class we were talking about our spelling word, nautical, and the concept of nautical miles. I mentioned that they were different from "regular" miles but still measure length like a mile does. I then said that I was sure that my dad could tell them all about the difference, but that I would have to look it up. One of my girls piped up and said, "Your dad is the total package!"I love you! Thanks for giving me fodder for classroom discussion and other random tidbits.
I just loved it! Yep, you've all been mentioned a time or two in class, but I think Grumps might have just achieved a new level of honor! ;)
I doubt that the Shirley Temple curl rolls will ever come back in style. My mother sure loved playing with my hair waaay back, a very long time ago, giving me a curl here…and a curl there.
Look at those chubby baby cheeks. They are still here, just older.
Have yourselves a ginger peachy TBT. Life is good here in Mayberry, y’all!
Our multi-talented UCHS band members have put together an amazing band recruitment video. We do NOT own the rights to the background tracks. We just own the rights to love and promote the accomplishments of all these great kids.
Watch all the way to the end for the cute bloopers! Enjoy:
Cheers and best wishes to all the kids (and the band director, and the band boosters) from Ansley’s Grammie!
Isn’t Amy a cutie? Yep, she sure is. She’s a keeper for sure.
She was “down in the back” big time yesterday, and spent the morning stretched out on our living room floor, letting me play mommie. See, being a mom is never over…….and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
PSA - Be nice to your kids—they get to pick out your nursing home. Amy says she will find us a nice cruise ship. Love that (smart a$$) girl! That trait she inherited from MM…of course.
After a visit to the chiropractor, she was much better by last night, and she is back for another visit to the doc even as I type. I’m thinking positive thoughts that she will be moving better today. She’s tough, and will survive, despite inheriting her dad’s genetic back genes. At least she got HIS eyelashes.
There is just other normal stuff going on here in paradise today, nothing that makes headlines……and that’s the way we like life. Sweet and normal, despite an occasional “down in the back.”
Two of the greatest influences in my life…my mother and MM’s mother. Both were hard working, caring women who lived through some hard times, but loved and nourished their children, leaving their special marks along the way.
Without them, these precious kiddos wouldn’t have been possible. They are the greatest joys in my life.
Happy Mother’s Day to Haley, Amy, and Faith…and to all mothers by birth, or mothers by heart. You each have touched many lives, and left your own indelible marks. Carry on.
And now there are only three.
Enjoy today. It is the present in so many ways, well, except for the partial lizard I just found on the kitchen floor. Thank you, Missy-the-Huntress. Now where is the other half of it?! Some gifts are NOT appreciated!
Amy cleaned up the pontoon boat after its long winter storage, and Jason put it in the water for us, so naturally we had to take it for a spin. Thanks…and thanks for the ride, Captain Alex!
He might want to work on his boating technique and license when he gets a little older. Miss Macey just got qualified so she will be ready for summer and the jet ski! She rocks. Literally.
My new yard boy Will has been busy…MM said he was doing the same thing at this age, as was daddy Jason. These boys are learning many skills at young ages. That’s good, because they are the ones who will probably be pushing our wheelchairs!
So I am now back home after driving to South GA Monday. My high school class gals get together every so often for a dinner, and a Cinco de Mayo party was a perfect occasion for a gathering. It would have been more perfect had we gotten a whole group shot, but we were too busy talking…and eating. Imagine that!
I spent the night with sister Nan, and sister Delle was also there. Did we get a photo of this long overdue event? No…no one had on make up, so they nixed that idea. We, of course, had a lot of catching up to do, which was more important than primping.
It is good being back home…to hubby, laundry, kitties, and all that normal stuff that makes family life what it is…normal, with those I love most…in our little corner of paradise. Well, that litter box is not so thrilling. But still…
Home, sweet home. Happy Seis de Mayo, y’all!
