It has been a long time since my family welcomed a new baby. We are so excited for my cousin Adrina and Ryan and there sweet baby girl that is coming in July.
At Adrina's shower yesterday it was so sweet to see Adrina showing everyone where the baby is at and letting everyone rub her belly. She is a going to be a wonderful mom and Ryan an amazing dad! I look forward to watching them welcome this sweet baby in.
All of the girl cousins were especially excited for another girl to join our family. She is going to be so loved by everyone and I am sure she can feel it from all the rubs she got yesterday! If not she will soon learn how much our family loves each other....
There are 8 days left of school. Yes 8 days. And my youngest who is 11 has had quite the year. She has been counting down the days until school ends for over a month now. She has struggled with anxiety due to bullying situations at school. It has broken our hearts to watch this have such a profound effect on her. The only joy she feels is when she is with her soccer team or at home or with friends. So she is ready to walk away from this school. Sad when it comes to that. We will see what the next 3 months bring, but will focus on the positive of 3 months off and away from the negativity....
I feel I have been very MIA on my site. Life has gotten the best of me and so I have not kept up with my 365. But I am kicking it back in gear! Why not during my busiest time of the year? HA!
And so I begin it with my daughters piano recital last night. My daughter has a gift with music. This here is the last time she will have a piano recital because she has decided she wants to just play to play and not for lessons. She can sit down and learn a song all on her own. She can read music beautifully. I know she will continue to play because it is in her. Last night she played a beautiful song Fireflies. It is one of my favorites she has played.
“One of my biggest thrills for me still is sitting down with a guitar or a piano and just out of nowhere trying to make a song happen.” – Paul McCartney
