School’s Out For Summah!

School’s Out For Summah!

Oh yes.  Summer is here! Well, it’s not really here here, but technically it’s here. Our weather is just behind the times.  It’s still sporting a rockin mullet and wearing pegged pants…aaaahhh.  It’s 2 am and you know that brings out the weird in me.  It should in everyone.  Stay up late and get random.

OK, the last week or so has been pure caca. (is that how you spell it???) So instead of whining about docs that don’t really listen, coma sleeps, glass feet, and muscles that make ya go hmmm, I’m going to post a couple of adorable pics of da Bean.

Brand New Bean!

New Bean!

My gosh. Time has FLOWN right by. Four years ago she was just a tiny bean and now she’s in school!  She had her last day of school last week and there was a graduation for the kids that are going on to kindergarden.  Oh gosh, it was so cute!  The teachers built a little stage for the kids to step up on and receive either their graduation certificate or their ‘your coming back next year’ certificate.  So here’s where it gets cute.  The teach calls the Bean’s name and she gets up from her seat, steps up on the little stage, takes the certificate and holds it in front of her for a perfect photo op.  She smiles and then after she shook the teacher’s hand she looked out at all the parents and says “thank YOU”.  Everyone laughed and clapped and whooped and hollered.  She was a rockstar.  So she is smiling like crazy and sits back down as other kids get up for their turn.  Turns out she’s the only one who said thank you (hee hee) and after the last child went up she got out of her seat and climbed onto the stage again to look out and smile at everyone.  She stole the show.

Her Day

Her Day

Isn’t she just the cutest thing evar?!?!  LOL, I know I’m biased, but she so totally is.  I wish I could give a proper shout out to her school and her teachers, but I’m not going to use names without permission, or pictures (note the thought bubble over teacher’s face) and would never give out the name of the school. hmph.  If you are reading this all the wonderful loving teachers in her class, thank you SO SO much for all of the love, support, and excellent skills that you have given her this year.  She’s come a long way from the little girl who cawed to the little girl who could express herself with words.  You guys are amazing and I can never thank you enough.  Well, she’ll be there next year so I can start thanking you again!  One of the things on my ‘well’ list is helping out in the class one day a week.  I want to be there with her, and give her class my time.  Oh how I am praying that my body will listen to my mind and mellow out on me.

Alright. I am so not tired this is ridiculous.  Today is going to be rough.  Ah well.  I’m going to leave you with a bad pic of me. Not real bad, but just not good. Ha!

Until next time

Excited Gramma Gets Publicly Dorky

Sunrise? Sunset…

Sunrise? Sunset…

OK. Last night we had the most magnificent lightning storm that I have ever seen. We sat outside and watched the sky light up to the left, right, in front of, and behind our house. It was so crazy, we were in the very middle of the storm. Of course I was freaking out asking the Big C what the chances were that we would get hit standing out in the backyard going ooooh and aaahhhh. He’s from back east so that automatically qualifies him as an expert on the subject. He was counting the seconds between thunder claps and telling me how many miles away it was and doing math while I worried about our computers, generic viagra online, the fans that were on around the baby and was it true that you couldn’t talk on the phone, and did that guy that worked at the fast food restaurant really get hit in the headset by lighting while he was passing an order out the window to a car in the drive-through lane. I was too scared to turn on the computer and look it up on snopes.

Well, the past few mornings I have been up at the crack of dawn, literally, and the sunrises have been magnificent. So last night I decided to dig out my tri-pod that I found on sale for $14.99 (cheap!!!) and set it up to get a shot of this morning’s sunrise. I figured with the freakishly weird weather, it would be a really good shot. I fiddled with all the knobs and levers and could not wait until the sun rose this morning. I overslept the sunrise by like 15 MINUTES. I have seen the sun rise just about every day this week and they have been absolutely beautiful from the vantage point of my backyard. Picture perfect… So, of course after charging up the batteries for my old Nikkon and figuring out my new tripod, I would sleep through it! erggg… The shot you see above is a sunset taken from my backyard a little while back. It’s pretty too.

I’m going back to sleep.
