On May 16th we celebrated my 27th birthday!!! I know this is selfish, but I love my birthday! It's the one day a year that I get to myself. I get to choose what I want for breakfast, lunch, and especially dinner! This year my birthday fell on a saturday- and it was perfect. I gave a personal lesson for vb that morning and played sand vb all afternoon long. We went to a Hibachi-style restaurant for dinner and then had a small get together at a friends house. I have to say, this was one of the best birthdays I've had in a while (last year was pretty good, though). I was surrounded by people that I love and make me laugh- and my husband kept me laughing all night long. I hope 28 can top it!

Last Monday was the Kindergarten Field Day at Maddie's school- I have to say, I was sooo excited for her! Technically, I had 2 finals that day, but I rescheduled them for wednesday so I could be there the whole day. SO, that meant I had 5 finals on wed!! OY! But, it was totally worth it (eventhough it rained pretty much all day).
For the most part the events were focused on group participation, but Maddie did place FIRST in the only two individual events- baseball throw and broad jump. I have to brag a little bit:)
BUT- I did realize one big thing during the course of the day... I am THAT mom! As much as I hate to admit it, I wanted her to win more than she did! She didn't care what color ribbon she had- in fact, she didn't want the Blue ribbons at all, she wanted Purple (4th place)!! It really made me re-evaluate how I plan to coach her in Highschool. Oh well! In the end, we had a great day and I was so proud of her and the way she cheered everyone in her class on.
