Moving up and growing up

Here are some shots taken during Joshua's moving up day in school. Here he is all dressed up in their High School Musical number.

They all had to change for the actual ceremony where they get their names called and get a "diploma". This is my favorite picture with his best friend Chloe.

I was looking at the pictures and thinking to myself, how could this little boy have possibly come from me? He's grown up so much from the tiny tiny baby that burrowed inside my hospital gown.

I'd sometimes like to freeze a specific moment in time and just hold it in my hand so I can take my fill of looking.

I am finally surfacing (briefly) from the Gerard Butler induced fog I've been in since watching the movie 300.

So far, the hubby hasn't gone and gagged me with a spoon in the 300 madness I have been in the past few days but I imagine he's getting close to it. (Nah, he loves me too much to do that heh heh!) We went to the bookstore last Saturday to pick up a book they had reserved for me (yeah, another one) and I spent 15 minutes glued to the screen they had hooked up showing movie trailers of 300.

What the heck is wrong with Blogger? Can't upload pictures and here I was all ready to post pics of my darling son's moving up day. But, he was just brilliant! The first time he ever had to be onstage last year he just stood there staring at the audience. This time I was totally floored when he enthusiastically performed in the two dance numbers and said his closing remarks so well. I'm just so proud of him. He's growing up so fast.

Before blogger went all bonkers on me, I managed to upload this one pic and it's not even of Joshua. I took this on the way home from the bookstore. Faith was playing with a small balloon she got from a restaurant and I learned what happens when you keep rubbing a balloon on your hair.

It actually looks funnier if she holds the balloon a little farther from her head but couldn't capture it. Grrr...blogger had better sort itself out soon!

Anybody from Scotland out there? Anybody out there who can introduce me to Gerard Butler? I'll be really really grateful.

Bye for now!

I'm all done and I've got the day off tomorrow!!!!!

It's my son's moving up day and I've taken the rest of the day off. First to attend the moving up program, of course. The whole class will be performing and guess what they'll do?? (Caroline, I hope you read this) They're doing High School Musical. Yep. With costumes and all! I have a feeling I will have to hold on to Faith tightly because she might run on stage and perform along with her brother. And while that would be sooo cute, it might also be a bit embarrassing if she causes a glitch in the programme.

Oh, and Joshua's going to do the Closing Remarks. And he's got it all memorized too *sniff* am so proud of him! It's his big day tomorrow and I can't wait!

Then, I'm off with the hubby to see Frank Miller's 300. *yippee!!* Blood and gore and half naked men...whoops...I mean, um, the historical significance of the film is really interesting for me. Really. *ahem*

Three whole days with the kids and the hubby with no work to do. A movie date. A ton of books to read. I hope your weekend's as good as mine's going to be.

I really have to be getting home now. I've got a long list of groceries to buy and a ton of work to do when the kids are asleep. Plus I am operating on maybe two full hours of sleep last night with an hour or so of traffic to go through before I can get home.

And I so wanted to write about something. Like how my son's off his diapers and the bottle for good (it was so painless I couldn't believe I was worrying about it). Or how the play we saw last weekend sucked so much that we walked out 10 minutes into the second act. Or maybe about Faith dancing ballet while watching Barbie in Swan Lake.

But, there's not enough time to do any of that.

I'm just sitting here, gathering enough energy to stand, pack-up my things and go. Aren't I just a burst of sunshine today.

So, to make up for being so depressing, here's a kiss from me to you.................
