Last Day!


Today was Mason's last day of school!  

I'm sure I was more sad than Mason.  He doesn't really 'get it'!

3 Months of entertaining a 4 year old.

I'm scared! HA!

Mason had a fabulous last week of school.  It was a different party every day.  One day was fun day.  Full of activities, like bowling, bouncy ball, putt putt, bouncy house, and a picnic outside!  Another day was pizza day. 

He got a bucket full of goodies!

The last day we celebrated the summer birthdays.  

Complete with Happy Meals and ice cream sundaes!

Ms. Tina knows how to party!

Jordan, Cadey, and Mason were the birthday peeps!

Mason was in school for 9 months and of course I wanted to compare.

He has definitely lost the 'baby' look.  To me he looks so different.  More grown up. 

He recognizes all shapes, letters, colors, ABCs, and can count to 15!

He needs to work on writing his name and cutting out objects with scissors.

We couldn't be more proud.  He did an awesome job this year!  Of course, we had ups and downs, but for the most part, he was great!


This is from Ms. Tina's facebook page this morning.

"Today is the last day of preschool. It's unbelievable how fast time slips by! My heart has been affected by 10 beautiful little people, and I thank each of their families for trusting me to touch their minds and hearts. God truly does bless us through these children (of course, please don't hold me responsible for any crazy things that may say or do - ha ha!)... Love all of our JMCP families and have a wonderful summer!"

We couldn't agree more!  We are so thankful to have found JMCP and we couldn't have hand picked a more perfect teacher for Mason.  

 From our family to yours....

Have a Safe and Wonderful Summer!!

Mickey's Boat ~ Our first couple of days

 Disney Cruise 2013!

Here we go!  Our first Disney adventure at sea!
Mason, really, had no clue what was coming his way.  Of course we showed him pictures of the boat and told him he would ride on the airplane, but really, no clue!

Our traveling experience was a nightmare, however, we were flying stand-by  which made it that much worse. 

It took us 36 hours to get from our front door to the ship in Galveston, TX!

We stayed overnight in a hotel in Atlanta.  I felt so bad for Mason. He had been waiting all day to get on the airplane and he broke down when we had to leave the airport and come back later.  

 Poor fella was so exhausted and confused (so were we). 

I have no idea how he is smiling.  It's 11:00 pm and we have been sitting in an airport since 10:00 am!

 Finally!  We go back to the airport the next day and we get on the first flight to Texas.  As Madea would say, Hallelujer! 

MASON WAS SO EXCITED!  His first plane ride was actually at 8:30 pm.  It was the last flight out that night and we HAD TO get on this one!


YAY!  We're here!  We are just waiting to board the ship!

 Off we go!  We're leaving the port of Galveston, TX.

As we set sail, the deck party begins! 

 We sailed the first 2 days which was nice.  After all of the traveling, we just wanted to relax.  And we did.  By the pool everyday.  Ate breakfast, went to the pool, ate lunch, maybe a nap, a show at night, and then dinner.  

It was a hard life!  HA!  And let me tell you, the Disney Cruise Line is the way to go!  They treated us like royalty!  I can definitely see another Disney adventure in our future.  It was worth every penny!    

 I have a lot more to come, including my tips and tricks of sailing with Disney!
