My mom is so special to me. Of course, my whole family is, but my mom has been such a blessing and help to me and the boys, especially this year. Without her, we wouldn't have been able to Bridge Colton. Well, we might have but to make it happen, I would have had to give up my position at Foundry (which I love!). Every Tuesday and Thursday (and whenever else I may need her to) my mom picks Colton up from school. Not only does she pick him up but she volunteers to help his teacher, read to his class and do whatever she can to be involved. She also packs both of the boys a snack and juice to have when they get home, then she drives him all the way out to Cypress to drop him off so I don't have to back track on my way home. She sits in front of our house and lets Colton sleep in the car while she reads and waits for Chase and me to get home. She really is the best! I love the time we get to spend together but I appreciate her more then she will ever, ever, EVER know for always making my life easier and helping me with my boys. As you know, this isn't the first thing she's done to help me with the boys. In the past she babysat Colton full-time the first year of his life while I taught. Then, when Chase was born she watched him a couple days a week so I could teach and keep a position I absolutely love at Foundry.
My mom has helped make so many things possible for our family.
Last week, as a little thank you, I took her to a painting class at Vino Artino. We had such a nice time. It's not too often we do anything together without two little boys running circles around us.
Last week we went to The Oil Ranch for Colton's last field trip with Foundry. It was actually his forth trip there. He's been with me and my class every year since I've been there. This year we brought Chase a long. We had a good time and actually only rode the train twice! We tried out a few new things this year that we haven't done before like playing in the hay and Colton rode a pony for the first time. This year, Colton loved feeding the cows, as you can see in one of the pictures, Chase did not!
I feel so blessed to be able to have days like this with my boys.
Last minute, Zak got tickets to the Rockets game last Friday. We decided to take the boys and we had an absolute blast. I didn't think they would last through the whole game, but I was wrong. They ate and danced their way through the entire game.
