Bounce U

We got invited to a birthday party at Bounce U, an indoor house of bounce. Henry was a little little, but it was still a fun Saturday afternoon excursion. Plus I got to hang out with some of my favorite 3 year olds.

Good-bye Friends

So, today I said good-bye to my three-year-olds. Mixed feelings. Mainly sad feelings. I passed a parent in the hallway, who started to come my way, but remembered his daughter had moved to the other side of the hall. When he came out of the other classroom his head was down and I said, "I am sad." He kinda looked up and I said, "Are you sad?" Then he looked up with big red eyes and nodded and quickly left. I knew they would love their new class, but I just worried about them being sad. It is not like school-school where they have all summer. Yesterday they were with me and today they went to another room. I wanted to sneak in their room and hug them all, but I decided to give them a couple of days.

My new class is so sweet. They are learning to pull up their pants IN the bathroom, recognize their own name and use the BIG slide on the BIG playground. We were really proud today, because all the kids fell asleep WITHOUT their backs being rubbed--AMAZING FEAT! I am so excited to teach them new songs and see them grow.

Still there is a little ache for my old kids, even the ones that mad me want to pull out my hair.

Newly Married Connor

So my third and finally installation in my loves who had Summer Weddings is Connor Musick. Connor is the epitome of humble confidence. He oozes calmness and his spirit is winsome. He loved his friends no matter how goofy they got. Genuine. There is not a pretentious bone in his body. He showed up...when showing up probably wasn't always cool. He played the guitar at club, which is not really the most glamorous gig, especially when I was leading songs. I wanted to wrap him up in a box and save him for my daughter, which I don't have, but still. He would get out of his chair if a girl was standing. Just a great person and I am sure he will be a freakin' amazing husband and dad. Anyway here are some pictures that totally capture Connor.

Oh how we wish we could have been there yesterday for your day. We thought of you all day Connor and your sweet glad we got to meet the new addition to the Musick clan! We love you and your family!
