Busy Bees

We have been so busy lately, I have barely had time to feed my blog addiction. Madison is involved in so many activities right now, and it seems they all overlap in May. Most nights we are going to not just one, but two different events with her. Last night it was soccer followed by a softball game. Tonight it is Brownies, followed by an Art show at school. Ughhhh...I am looking forward to summer break!

Last week was especially busy as in addition to her regular events, Madison had cheerleading tryouts for Stow Youth Football. I was quite nervous as this is the first time she has ever had to try out for a team. I am so happy to report that Madison made it!!! She would have been devastated had she not. Cheerleading is something she loves and works very hard at.
Madison and Joe went to a Father Daughter Dance last week. I wish I had a cute story or antidote about the dance to share with everyone, but as I was not there, all I have is a photo of them before the dance:
I was at home with my own "date" for the night. A pretty cute one if I do say so myself:
Well, just a quick post to let you know I am still alive! I'm off to go observe artistic masterpieces created by second graders. Good times! :)

Now I think I am dreading school age.

I guess I would prefer 3 and one. At least they are in the house most of the time! :)

Hope you are hanging in there!

amanda said...

So cute.

I still can't get over how close you are to me. You have any plans for Memorial Day weekend. Perhaps like Sunday at 4ish for a BBQ?

Nan said...

The best times!

E and T said...

Wow, to think life gets so much busier when they're at school.

I guess it just never stops. I think of all the times my mum was a taxi service to my sister and I. Most days she would drive us to different sports and activities, stay while we did whatever it was for that day and then we'd all head home.

Mum's they really are very special, selfless people.

Warmest wishes

Cute pics. Glad to hear you're okay and enjoying life in real time... rather than online!

Those dances are so cute! She's a doll!

If she goes to Stow HS, she'll play my old high school Revere--if there's still a suburban league :)
