Hold your breath and go...lots of activities happening

Sometimes I am just like “If I can make it through this week, things will calm down”.  I mean “Who am I kidding???”  I have three very active kids, nothing is going to slow down.  Ever. 

BoomPa and Patty have been held hostage in North Mississippi for a week, splitting their time between the 10 grandchildren and all the end of the year hoopla kids have.   I hosted them a few nights, myself.
 We had winter.  We have summer.  We did not have spring.  It is HOT here, folks!
 Bitty graduated 4K and Mrs. Marcia gave him a balloon and candy.  This pleased him very much.
 There are those days that you just can't hang until the sun goes to sleep.
 Last week Bitty's school had their End of the Year party and we grabbed Emery for the fun.
 They fed goats...
 Got their faces painted...
 Rode the train...
 Ate sno cones...
 Watched turtle races...
 Petted weird animals....
 Albino Hedgehog
 Rode horses....
 Ate snacks....
 And headed home...
 Comparison of the before and after...
 I also killed a baby snake right outside of my garage.  I was courageous and brave.  This was also my first snake to kill.
 Wednesday night the kids of CIA (Children in Action) received their badges they earned this year at church.
 And Friday was the last day of school for the boys....
 First of the year and end of the year...
 First of the year and end of the year...
Lots more to blog about when time allows.

That neglected middle child

Ever since Bitty was deemed as a "middle child" I have heard all these stories of how middle children are different, feel neglected sometimes, can be challenging, etc.  I don't know how much of all that I truly believe because #1 He was a hard pregnancy, #2 He was a hard baby, and #3 He was a hard toddler LONG before Sister even came into the picture.  He's just our Bit, he can be difficult, but he's ohhhh so loving!

Well, since he often times hides from my pictures, he's been "neglected" on the blog here lately, but here's a Bitty blog for all y'all to see.

Last night was the 4k End of the Year Program about Mother Goose and the nursery rhymes and yours truly was "Little Jack Horner".
In true Jill fashion, I was early.  We were supposed to be there at 6:15 to drop the kids off for the 7:00 program.  I arrived at 5:55 to get a good seat.  I wasn't the only over the top, uptight, Type A, gotta have a plan person....I was on the third row even that early!
 Y'all like that pie I made don't you????  Gotta love some construction paper and a glue gun for the win!
 Bit got to lead the pledge.
His part: "Little Jack Horner sat in a corner eating his Christmas pie.  He stuck in his thumb and pulled out a plumb and said what a good boy am I!!!"

 Mrs. Patty and BoomPa

After the program they were presented with diplomas and Bitty also won an art contest!  I guess those art lessons are paying off after all.
 And PERFECT attendance.  As I told the principal.... "the bad kids never miss school!!!"
 And Fancy sent me these from his phone...
 Friday night we snuck out to the Five Star City Fest for a bit!
