My Mother's Day
Daughter got me this Mint Chip drink from Starbucks
(and it tastes like ice cream!).
She also got me a balloon bouquet with this huge center piece.
The others in the bouquet were purple, but kids play (and balloons pop).
She had the balloon bouquet and Starbucks delivered to our front door!
This was from my preschooler.
She planted a seed in this cup at school and watered it right when we got home.
It now sits in the window sill so it can get some sun.
My youngest son gave me a fun handmade card with hidden messages.
And my older son finished a candle holder in wood shop class. Now we need to get a candle for it, and then I'll snap a photo.
I spent the day doing absolutely NO house work. So that was nice.
And we ended the day with a trip for some frozen yogurt. YUM.
Other things going on in life lately...
We attended a "mandatory senior parent meeting" at the high school last week. It was really a useless event, just to pick up cap and gown ensembles that all graduates need to order to be able to graduate with the class at the ceremony. It was really pointless. All they did was handout a packet to read (the rules) and answered any questions that people wanted to ask about the graduation ceremony. And then we had to wait in line to pick up the caps and gowns. Really. I could've spent my evening in a much better way. Students could have picked up the packets and orders during a lunch break or something.
The school offered Senior Payment Plans at the beginning of the year, which covered most of the senior costs (yearbook, prom, sober grad night, senior trip, etc.). I was especially grateful for this option, because there would have been no way we would have been able to pay for everything up front.
However, the cap and gown wasn't included in the payment plan. How crazy is that? To top it off, though, when ordering the cap and gown, there's also a shipping fee! Yet, as luck would have it, all the caps and gowns are shipped directly to the school and then distributed during this "mandatory meeting."
Call me crazy, but I really think that:
1) cap and gown costs should have been included in the payment plan, and
2) shipping should not have been charged unless shipped directly to each buyer.
We received a nice little invitation in the mail on Monday of this week. There is an annual Senior Awards Night, and this is where students are recognized for academic achievements and scholarships. They are also given their cords to wear for graduation.
This morning Baby Girl and I picked some flowers. We'll be drying them in a pretty flower press made by BK Inspired (and we'll post more about that later).
What's been going on with you in life lately?
