She's 5!

Katie Mei is officially 5! We celebrated with an appointment for tea at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort where they do it right! This mom's heart was beating fast as all 3 little ladies, Mom Jo and Aunt Tanya tried to NOT break any Royal Albert Old Country Roses REAL china. Whew!! Between the swan cakes, 'grass' sandwiches and lots of the tea was a wild success! No major mishaps either!! Happy Birthday sweet girl!!

We Graduated!

Friday was the last day for Katie Mei's preschool years. She officially graduated from Florida's Voluntary Pre Kindergarten program. We will miss our preschool so much! The teachers and director are magnificent and have made our years there extraordinary!! But alas....we have to grow up. Miss Katie was officially the tiniest of the grads and did us proud by SINGING LOUD and waving at her obnoxious family during the program. Then on to 'Crackle Barrell' to finish off the celebration. Since we have a summer birthday they celebrated Katie's at school that day we had to wear our crown. The folks at the restaurant seemed to think another celebration was in order so who are we to turn down food??!!

So When You Have Asthma....

Every three months (unless there's a problem) we go and have our lung functions done. It's a pretty technical and interesting process which never ceases to amaze me. Pretty simple for the patient (yea!!) but fascinating from the interpretation perspective. I wonder how many lives could've been saved had this been available even 25 years ago??!! Leni's numbers were awesome even though she's been running a temp and has some fluid this week. Woot!

No, We Haven't Fallen Off the Face of the Earth

Just extremely busy with end of the school year stuff. Katie Mei graduates from Pre-K next week. This Mama was asked by the teacher if "you could try and get Katie to class on time at least the last week of the year because we have graduation practice." I am making an attempt of great magnitude...because every 4 year old must be able to have all that grad stuff down pat and committed to memory don't cha think??! Heh. Actually I'm pretty sad because no more little ones in preschool for us. Next year all will be in big girl school.....which is another area we've been exploring. More on that later. Here's the gang on Mom's day. Sorry it's a little blurry. I was laughing at the squirmy, screaming, cutie in Mel's arms that will be pure delight around age one (she's delightful now...just a little high-maintence). We love all our people. Smile.

Proof Positive

We got to take the classroom dog "Happy Pappy" home for the weekend. Boy did he/she have adventures! Happy Pappy endured a trip to Sea World where you will see 'proof positive' that Katie Mei is officially tall enough at almost age 5 to ride Shamu (you have to hit the bottom of the blue line to ride with an adult).....but Happy Pappy had to sit in the stroller and watch. He was much, much too short and not nearly as brave as Katie. BTW......Leni was 42 inches tall at age....3. Katie is just hitting 39. Poor kid will never be able to leave the kid section at theme parks!
