Pics of the Girls

Here are a couple of our "moments" with the girls this week.

Here's Sarah with her good friends on the last day of preschool (yesterday). Sarah's friends are Joanna, Sudhi, and Vivian. Their parents are from China, India and Africa. Sarah changed so much over the past 2 years at's been beautiful to watch!

Recital costumes arrived this week. Morgan had fun trying her's on. The girl's recital is June 6th. She sprained her foot on the way out the door to the bus this week, so there was no dancing this night, but lots of smiles!

Yesterday it was the "straw that broke the camel's back". I had bought these cool organizer bins for the girl's rooms back in February...I've looked forever for some I liked...and yesterday we got a notice in the mail that they were recalled for excessive levels of lead in the paint and we had to return them to Lowes for a refund. I loved these bins and did NOT want to return them, but I knew I must. Then, at Lowes, they would not even give us our full refund because the last price they had in their system was a clearance price. I was literally crying over this! I think it was just one more thing out of my control last night and I was surprised at how much this "little" thing effected me emotionally. Today the sun is suppose to shine again and it's suppose to warm back up and I'm going to take a few moment's to make some lists of "Things I'm thankful for" "Things that won't be changing" and "Things I do have control over". That I can do!

I would have cried too! How terrible! Did you talk to a manager and reem anyone out? You're too sweet for that!
