B's class had a jazz concert last week. It only included the 2nd & 3rd grades, so it was not too long. The first song, B was a behind a tall girl in a hat. The second song B was behind a curtain and we couldn't even see him.
I videotaped it anyway because I don't want to be accused of neglecting the 3rd child in the future.
B is in the top row center. You can occasionally see his head peak out from behind the tall girl in the pink shirt & black hat.
J had his band concert on Wednesday morning. I tried to take a picture but he pulled his music stand so it would block his face. I snuck to the back of the stage and took a short video of one of their songs. The bass & trombone section of the school band is excellent!
We didn't do much for Mother's Day. Just the way I wanted it. I slept in until 9am. I got breakfast tacos in bed for breakfast. I spent an hour or two in the yard cleaning up debris from the winter and pulling weeds. I went to JoAnns with S#5, MIL & A. We ordered in Thai food for dinner.
The boys found a way to amuse themselves in the afternoon. Homemade water slide time.
Of course, once the meal was over, it was back to being a mom. Laundry, last minute school stuff, make them brush their teeth and go to bed. The real fun!
A's (and E's) birthday was last Friday night. For their birthday, the girls took a bunch of friends to the ballpark.
We celebrated with our family on Saturday. It was a typical Saturday for us. We squeezed a Mexican lunch between a baseball meeting, dance recital rehearsal, church & dinner with friends in from out of town. Amazingly, we had not sporting events.
After our quick lunch, we ran home for cake.
Poor A has to suffer with those brothers. At least the cake was good.
B made his First Communion last Saturday. He was so excited about everything. He was going to wear a suit. He was going to wear a tie. He was going to receive communion. He got to pick the food and the cake. It was going to be a huge day.
He was up and ready early. The only panic moment was when I realized he was brushing his teeth in his navy blue pinstripe and tie. We did a quick removal of stainable clothes and then he brushed.
I skipped the photographer at the church so I tried to get pictures before.
Definitely not portrait worthy. I think I'm going to have to dress him up and try again. Or pay someone to do it.
I did take a picture of him headed toward his pew as they entered the church, but I listened to the priest this time and didn't try to take pictures during mass.
Once at home, he got his cake and his new rosary. It was a good day.
