Muffins with Moms!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day yesterday? The weather was the only downside to my weekend. It was way too windy and a little on the chilly side. It felt more like March than May! We spent the weekend in Nebraska visiting relatives so most of yesterday was spent driving home. Claire must have told me a million times that Mother's Day was not going to be until Monday, so she said she wouldn't be wishing me a Happy Mother's Day until then. So, this morning I woke up to, " Happy Mother's Day!", rather loudly I might add.

I spent this morning at school with Claire having Muffins with Moms. This was a morning to honor all the Mom's of kindergartners for Mother's Day! I have to say that as much as I would have rather spent my morning in bed curled up with a good book, I did the good Mommy thing, and drove to school. I just cracked up at the huge smile on Claire's face when I walked in. It's amazing at how fast a kid can forget things. I told her this morning I was coming but she was still so surprised when I got there. Hmmm, maybe someday she will make a good actress, do you think? It was pretty cute to see all the kids faces showing off their moms to each other. There was one dad among the group, but I think he held his own. Since I volunteer in the classroom, I was a little curious to see which kid went with which mother, because I know how they really act when their Mom's aren't around! No, I'm kidding, they really are a good group of kids!

Of course we had to get a picture of us!

Get ready for a good laugh! This was my attempt at drawing a picture of Claire and I. Ok, so it's not my best work, but hey, I was under a lot of pressure!

I just love Claire's face here!

This is Claire and her teacher, Mrs. B. She is a fantastic teacher and we just love her. She was my son's teacher when he was in Kindergarten, so when we found out Claire was going to have her, we were ecstatic!

Well guess what? I hear the laundry calling my name and possibly that good book I was talking about! So, for now, I bid you all a great Monday!
