This morning Kayleigh marched in our town parade with her baton twirling group. She was so excited and so proud of herself she was beaming. She told me last night that at the last practice she nailed the routine so she was psyched for today.
I was teary eyed when I saw her because she really loves doing this and I'm happy she found something she loves. I also got teary eyed because I dropped her off at the parking lot (I hung out for a while because I was nervous) and she went the whole parade route with her group and my friend met her down there because she was marching with her daughters daisy group. She's gotten so big it makes me sad sometimes, but I'm glad she is independent.

After the parade my friend and her family came back here and we ordered out and just hung around my house and the kids played for a few hours.

Now we're off to order some furniture.

We had a cookout at our house but had to grill in the garage because our d@mn deck isn't anywhere close to being done yet. It was nice though--- and now, I'm counting down the minutes until tomorrow, 8am.

This morning instead of going to the parade, dh had to help his sister move. Then we went out to lunch (Chinese) and then dh had to go to work. It'll be good money, but it still sucks bc we usually have plans for Memorial day with family for a cookout, but no one planned anything this year. So today is kinda like any other day except our garabage doesn't get picked up and we don't get mail.
BUT don't get me wrong, I do appreciate Memorial day for what it is!

I actually had off, but Dh didn't, which sucked b/c other guys from his work did. So, I just hung around the house the AM w/Kendall. After lunch, I took her to her Great-grandmother's to go play in the pool & then we ended up staying there & Dh came too & we had small family cook-out. It actually did not rain until nighttime, so that was probably the best part!
