Hellooooo Summaaaaah!

Today is the official first day of summer for Ben and Alex, and today was also Dori's last day of 2nd grade.  Dorian had a blessed year with his teacher Miss Carolyn who always knew how to bring out the best of him through music, laughter and lots of love.  Here's a little video of Dorian listening to his new favorite book today during his last class.

So long 2nd grade! This handsome fella is getting ready for a fun summer and with lots of honeys! 

Ben and Alex said "Adios" to the 7th grade and had a blast going swimming with their friends after school yesterday at the country club alot of the Spartan families belong to.  A big special thank you to the Riley family -- Matt and Katie were always so kind in letting the boys walk to their home after every day after school until Chris or I picked them up.  We're confident that the boys probably ate 3 tons worth of food and drank 30 gallons worth of juice boxes, sodas and water bottles from their fridge after school so thank you Rileys for being so awesome with our boys and being such an exemplary St Rita family!

Congrats on 7th Grade Baseball Dallas Parochial League Champions St. Rita Spartans! The kids had a solid squad this year and it was a lot of fun to see them win the championship game on their last week of school.  Ben's select basketball team (the Wolf Pack) also won their league last week so we've been enjoying lots of celebrating these past couple of weeks.  

Since the last time I posted in February we bought a new vizsla puppy (Gracie).  She is such a sweet heart!  Luna didn't want anything to do with her, but she has slowly grown on her.  She has been a wonderful addition to the family!  

In other late breaking news, I accidentally ran over Gracie last week.  Yikes!!  Miraculously she'll be back to normal in 8 weeks with the help of lots of love, reconstructive jaw surgery and a small fortune.  She is ready to get back in action and play even though she gets sedatives twice a day to avoid messing with her wounds or moving her jaw too much.  She has more energy on sedatives than most normal people have after 3 red bulls.  Luna is keeping her distance from Gracie during the meantime.  Poor Gracie!  

Our two champs -- Ben for the DPL Baseball championship and Alex for participating in a special performance with the choir at school for their principal who retired this week.  We are so proud of them, they had a fantastic year. 

Thanks to the Mazurs for going with us to the 2017 Wish Night at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas earlier this month.  We had a great time and it was fun getting all dressed up for a great cause.  If you see me posting a lot more about Make-A-Wish these past few months is because I'm now officially on the regional council for Make-A-Wish North Texas.  It's a lot of fun meeting other Wish families, being a part of Wish reveals, and raising awareness and funds for amazing families across North Texas. 

This past week Chris and I celebrated 19 years of marriage.  Time certainly has flown by quickly these past 19 years and we look forward to many more years to come.
