Dominiq's haircut and Eriq's last day (photo heavy)

So, I had put off cutting Dominiq's hair for awhile, I just loved it! I know that he is getting hot though with the warmer weather with all of it. So I went to Sally's tonight and bought a bigger hair guard. It will take me some getting used to, I didn't cry but close! The first pic was a few days ago, the next two are after the cut and then all the hair I cut off. He is a little boy now...

Today was Eriq's last day of 1st grade! He got a perfect report card. He started the summer reading program last week and has already read 8 books in 2-3 days! I posted a pic of Eriq and his teacher showing the clipboard I made last night and a couple of close ups. Following that is the picture frame we did together for his teacher a few weeks ago for Teacher Appreciation.

Sick? In May?

Yes it's true! Kelley, Dominiq and I all had the sniffles last week. Kelley got over his pretty quickly, I just have my night cough, and Dominiq well... We took him to the dr yesterday since he hardly slept the night before. He has the mouth part of the hand, foot, mouth virus. He had this last year! This time it is worse though. We are having to mix Maalox and Benadryl to squirt into his mouth to coat the sores on his throat. Poor baby. He is doing better as time goes, so hopefully within a day or so he'll be back to himself.

Eriq's last day of school is next Tuesday. We will go to the awards ceremony tomorrow at his school. As of right now, he will come with me to work during the summer when Kelley goes back to work. He is excited, but we will see how long that lasts! He has really gotten into reading and wants to go sign up for the reading program at the library. His soccer season ended this week. The team finished better this season than any other. Eriq had about 10-12 goals, which is such an improvement!

I am going to do some creating this weekend and get somethings posted!

I will be at my friend Ashley's scrap store most of the weekend! I didn't get started until about 8-8:30 last night after gabbing with new friends! I did manage to basically get 4 pages together, thanks Jan! I felt a little accomplished! LOL! I will be heading back up there in a couple of hrs until midnight tonight, then again tomorrow! I hope you do lots of creating if you have the chance!
