May 2010

May has been a whirlwind month! Birthdays, dance recitals, school field trips, the Mother's Day tea at school, Mother’s Day, year-end parties, the end of the year program, and of course Alivia's graduation from preschool. And two of our three Sweet Peas spent time in the hospital. It is amazing that we found time to fit in a trip to Topsail for Memorial Day.

It has been a great month full of milestones.
Alivia turned five and graduated from preschool. Alivia and Avery both shined like little stars in the dance recital and the year end program. We were so very proud of them.
Avery had dental work and was such a big girl at the hospital. She gave us a show singing "Praise Jesus" and other favorite songs while waiting to go in for surgery! Avery also very much enjoyed her 3 year photography session with Ms. Geri. She was a peice of work posing, making silly faces, laughing and telling Geri "Just one more."
Aleah learned to wave, crawl, feed herself, to pull herself up to a standing position and her little personality continued to blossom. She smiles with her eyes and has started making silly faces to get everyone around her to smile. Aleah also took a trip to the hospital...the emergency room to be exact. She caught a stomach bug that left her nearly dehydrated after not being able to keep anything down for five days. Alivia, Avery and Daddy all caught it, too.

With all of this, thank goodness Daddy was only traveling the first week of the month. I don't think Mommy would have made it through with her sanity without his help. It takes both of us to keep the Johnson household together. And some days it feels like we just barely make it!

We are so blessed...and thankful that we have made it through the school year. We are ready for summer and a slower pace. (Who are we kidding? Does life ever really slow down??) We like the thought of it anyway. Here's to a quieter June!
