Mother’s Day fell right in the middle of exams for poor Luke, but we had a beautiful day anyway. He had worked on a paper until 3 am, so when the kids and I got up and ready to leave for church, he had just gotten up and was working on 2 briefs due at noon! Yuck!! My siblings and I took my mom to lunch because my dad had to go to work, too. Being a mother has been the best, most challenging, most rewarding, and fun job I have ever had. I cant believe that this is my 3rd Mother’s Day!
Because we couldn’t see Luke’s Mom on Mother’s Day, I dressed the kids in honor of her! Kate and Audrey (the doll) have on dresses that Grammy gave Kate for her birthday. Preston is wearing an outfit that Grammy’s mom made for Luke on his first Easter. They looked so stinkin cute!!!
The one who made me a mother and the one that taught me how!
The kids and I then spent the afternoon outside playing in the backyard!
Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. ~Marcel Proust
