Busy, Busy and More Busy

It has been a very busy 2 weeks here. We have had all sorts of end of the school year activities going on, graduation, band competition, field trips, play dates and yard work! Emily sums it up in this first picture!
We had a great picnic with the preschool at our town beach. It was cold and windy that day but the kids had fun. Emily is the younger sister of Jamie who is in Thomas's class and the poor thing just couldn't keep up.

This is part of our beach overlooking Long Island Sound. As you can see we don't have much activity when it comes to waves. Long Island protects us and the only time it gets choppy and we have any types of waves is when a storm comes in. Not as nice as some beaches but it is nice since it is only 3 minutes from my house.

Thomas and some of his classmates and parents enjoying the beach

This is the graduating class! I can't believe my baby has graduated from his first year of preschool. I did ok since I know there is 1 more year of preschool before he is off to Kindergarten. Now talk to me in a few weeks when my oldest graduates from 8th grade...I don't think I will do well with that one.

This is Thomas and Jamie. They will be married some day(we joke all the time)! They absolutely love one another. Jamie asks Thomas to walk her to her car everyday after preschool and they walk hand in hand to her car. It is the cutest sight ever!!! I do have to say that Thomas is a gentleman and just does as he is told to do....LOL!

Thomas getting his diploma!

After Disney this is no fun at all for him...can you tell? Look at the look on his face. I can see him saying to himself "this is boring"

Thomas was big enough to drive the car on his own. He told Dad that he was a big boy and can do it all by himself. So Dad and I sat and watched as he "bumped" his way down the track. He looks like he has been driving for years the way he is sitting in the car with his hand like that on the wheel.

Mark had a band competition at Lake Compounce which is a amusement park here in CT. After they played a few songs we got to enjoy the park for the day. It was so cold and only finished raining shortly after they performed. It wasn't that fun. Last year it was about 85 and sunny and we all went home sunburned and the kids were able to use the water park...not this year! Sweatshirts never came off :(

I couldn't really get good pics of the band concert. The place that they performed in was big. They all did a great job and it was very enjoyable. Most of them have been playing since they were in 4th grade and I can't believe how much they have grown in the last 4 yrs.
Now that Thomas is done with school we just have to get through Marks last 2 or 3 weeks left and much more to do. We are also trying to get Mark into the "little explorers" program at our local firehouse. It is nice since we know the chief! Hopefully he can get in and it will keep him busy for the summer. If summer ever gets here!! We have had a few nice and really warm days then it drops back down again. Like today it is only supposed to be 60-65 degrees. Isn't it supposed to be warmer now!!
I hope you all are doing good and are having much better weather then we are.
I will also be posting on Bob Bull later today.
Take Care
