Gymnastics Graduation

Hannah completed another session of recreational gymnastics at our local gym and as always enjoyed her time.  I had changed her lesson to an evening class so that she could be back with Coach Alla and it was a good decision.  Alla is a great coach who pushes Hannah to do better which is something she needs.  She did so well and all of her skills progressed this term.  We’ll take the summer off and then she’ll go back in September.

Way to go Hannah!  Mommy is very proud of you!IMG_5116 - Copy

Hannah was excited to be in this session with her good friend Riley!  (I was thankful to have her Mom Melanie to visit with each Monday evening too.)  I’m thankful for the friendship Hannah and Riley continue to share even though they are in different classes at school this year.  They’ll be back together in gymnastics next September and we’re hoping at school too!IMG_5118

Father’s Day 2017–Thankful

Hannah and I were extra thankful to celebrate Father’s Day with Dad yesterday.  He gave us a scare last week when he and mom needed to leave my piano recital as Dad was having chest pains.  (I teased him that he’ll do anything to avoid a piano recital!)  Thankfully it was quickly ruled out not to be a heart attack but he will be following up with a cardiologist this week.  So this Father’s Day we are extra thankful for Dad!

Mother’s Day 2017 ~ Blessed

Hannah and I joined mom and dad for our annual Mother’s Day dinner and it was such a wonderful evening!  We enjoy spending time together.

We attempted to take pictures in our normal location at the restaurant but due to the recent heavy rains and flooding the area was closed off so we waited to take pics back at mom and dad’s house.

We love you mom/grandma.  Happy Mother’s Day!IMG_4879

On this day of celebration I was acutely aware the many mother’s days in the past when my heart ached as I longed to be a mom.  For those whose hearts are longing to be a mom, please know I prayed for you.  For those who spent this day only being able to remember times with their mom, please know I prayed for you too.  So many dear friends have lost parents recently and my heart aches for you.  Lifting you up in prayer.

Mother’s Day with Hannah 2017

Mother’s Day was a great day from start to finish!  Hannah made breakfast  and offered to serve me breakfast in bed.  Although it would have been a treat, thinking about food and drinks being carried up stairs on carpet only a couple of weeks old led me to join her downstairs for breakfast. Winking smile

Hannah had created a sweet menu to introduce all the pieces of the meal she had planned.IMG_4871

The delicious meal included cranberry juice, a sweeeeeet treat, a brownie cut in the shape of a heart and then in two and milk.    IMG_4872

I love all the care Hannah took to make every part of this day special!

Hannah is super creative as you can tell from our breakfast and her gifts were precious too!  Grandma took her to the Dollar store and allowed her to choose things and it was amazing to see what she created with her choices.

It means so much to me that so many of her gifts are pictures she’s drawn of she and I together!!   At daycare she made this sweet mug with a plant in it.IMG_4947
