Yikes! This schedule must slow down....

Want to know where the heck I've been? I've been racing through life with barely a chance to catch my breath. Major event following major event. Mother mission upon mother mission, in addition to the normal busy SAHM routine.

Liz in the Spring play at her school... "Larceny and Old Lace," written by skilled language arts teacher Van Vandagriff....Liz is in the purple.

Mary was in the chorus of the Spring musical at her school....."Guys and Dolls"
Lots of fun. Mary is on the far right in the middle group.

And Jim played the lead role of Sky Masterson...

Dear godson Mitch was confirmed....

Year-end Spring concerts, honors convocations, and baccalaureate Mass. Below is Jim with a final photo with his well-loved madrigals director and drama coach.

Jim graduates from high school. Here he is with my oldest son Mike and our dear pastor Father Ed Fride.

There have been two bridal showers. Below are some of the favors made by Anne's friends. cookies cut from "bridal" cookie cutters and expertly decorated.
Terrifically fun shower with Anne's friends and mine. I could not stop smiling at a room full of some of my very favorite people.

Liz graduates from grade school. Here she is with one of her very favorite teachers.

All my children were at both graduations. I just love having all my children together. You know? It's a mom thing.

Jim with his diploma.
And these are just some of the main events. Jim's graduation party is what I'm working on now together with the ongoing plans for the wedding in August.

I hope to catch up on some of my blog reading soon. I really do want to know what's going on with everyone else. I hope you are all well.....

I think the spring and early summer always seems to be so much busier than other times..the Sacraments, graduations, let alone all the other.
That's okay, here, anyway, you haven't missed much..some are not writing all that included.
You look well..seem to be keeping fit and trim. :) Please keep prayers going for us here when you think of it. Thank you. God bless you. Suz

My last just graduated HS last night. A big party planned for next Sunday, then a niece's wedding 12 hours away the next week. Then a new grandbaby in August. Hang on to your hat; it doesn't slow down! ;-D

WOW, I got tired just reading this post! You are, indeed, SuperMom!

I wish I could have seen G&D -- Ted said it was fantastic. I was out of town at a seminar that weekend. I can't wait until the summer show -- it's supposed to be hilarious, and it's a show I'm not familiar with.

Anne's wedding preparations seem to be going along well -- I love seeing the photos of the events and milestones.

May God continue to give you the grace and fortitude to get through all of your many obligations!
