10 Things to Smile About in May

Summer is officially here for us!! School was out last Friday and we had wedding festivities all weekend, so we took the kids out to the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines for a few days to kick off summer with a bang.  And that we did.  I'll be telling y'all all about it next week on R We There Yet Mom?.

But today? Today is the day my kids HATE.  It's "Summer Clean-OUT Day!!"  Clean out those closets, shelves, under your bed, etc. and let's purge!!! YAY!!!!!!  

No, their not buying it either. 

Needless to say, I'm going to post this real quick and get this party started!

Here is my Top 10 Things that Made Me Smile in the month of May.  There were a lot, so it was really hard to narrow it down.

 1. Finishing Bubba's first year of "school".  He attended a sweet little pre-school two days a week and LOVED it. He woke up each morning asking, "I go school today??".  He loved his class, his teachers, and even stayed on his mat quietly during his nap time.  He loved it so much (and so did this momma) that we decided to put him in 3 days a week next year!  Here we are at his Mother's Day Tea.
 2. Of course, this fantastic trip!!!  Filled with friends, food, drink, and laughter, I will be grinning from ear-to-ear each time I think of this trip.  Can't wait til next year! #tulsa7
 3. Both kiddos won the opportunity to ride their bikes to school with their Vice Principal, Mr. Baker, in the Spring Carnival Silent Auction  It's memories like this that they will remember from Elementary School!
 4.  The family took a trip to a fun little German town, Walburg, and had a great evening at the Walburg  Biergarten, where we ate fun food and danced all night - we had great "date night" with the kiddos and this picture shows how much fun we were having! You can read about Walburg here.
 5.  Matt ended his soccer coaching career this Spring.  After 16 seasons coaching Miss Sis, he is reading to be a parent sitting on the sidelines.  His U11G team gave him this Liverpool jersey as a thank you!  I have  feeling his coaching isn't quite over, as he has been kicking the ball around the backyard with little Bubba.
 6. Brody transformed into George Washington the last week of school for the Living Museum project. He did an awesome job and told everyone, "Want to know how I got on the $1 bill???"
 7.  We had a spectacular 3rd Birthday Party for my little man.
 8.  The very next day, Brody became a Webelo Scout.  In 2 years, he will become a Boy Scout!!
 9.  And we spent Bubba's actual birthday at the Quarry Splash Pad - love this place - and I love this picture!!!
 10.  Lastly - 2 photos for this one - Both kids had an EXCELLENT school year - both getting all A's all year and perfect attendance (yes, I think I can brag about this!).  Definitely makes this momma SMILE.
Sissy had a graduation, which I will tell you all about very soon....

I feel like I have so much to catch up on the blog here, so I will be attempting to keep it up this summer - it gets hard maintaining 2 blogs and trying to promote the other one, but this one captures all that happens in my family, so it is just as important as the other.

Thanks for sticking with me and all the support y'all give!  Have an excellent day.

And thanks to EmmyMom (who I had the pleasure of meeting in California) for hosting this fun topic each month!  I love to look back on all that I have to smile about!

Great list! It is so nice and such a blessing when they like and do good in school and all three of your kids are!
Lucas is excited to start scouts this fall- we actually went out to the scout store just today so I could get a bunch of awards as I am the Cub Committee Chair.

It was so nice meeting you! Thank you so much for linking up
