Party Prep

20 Texas

Welcome back to my Texas adventure. Friday was the girlies official last day of school, which consisted of a morning long party and dismissal at noon. Q’s final Elementary School party was a Luau and required a festive outfit. For my sister it was her final, last minute scramble of the school year. You all know the feeling, it strikes just as you’re trying to force your child to go to bed and they suddenly say, “Remember Mom, I’m supposed to dress up like Hellen Keller tomorrow.” This wasn’t quite that bad. Luckily Q’s Dad likes his Hawaiian shirts. Of course she wanted to wear a certain one that didn’t really look very “Hawaiian”. But Mom won that fight after each of us reassured Q that her Mom’s choice was the best and she would be the cutest little Hawaiian girl at Winkley.


Adventures At Ikea

No trip to Texas is complete without a visit to Ikea. Especially when you come from an Ikea-barren state like Nebraska. Kelli of course had a list of items she wanted to buy, I truly needed nothing. But that’s the thing about Ikea, you go in needing nothing and come out $100 later with all kinds of something.

The next morning was “Graduation Day!”. Saylor would be graduating from the 5th grade which means next year she will be in Middle School… watch out world! Or at the very least… watch out Texas! This would be my third time attending the Girlies “end-of-the-year-assembly” at Winkley Elementary and I get such a kick out of it every time.

Hey there, anyone interested in taking a trip down south with me? If not, stop reading now, because we are headed to the land of “Ya’ll” where you have to shower three times a day due to the heat and no matter what kind of pop you order they give you a Dr. Pepper.
