The good news for those who didn't win (and I sure wish everyone could have) is that they are having a 20% off sale until May 31st. Click here for more info. Also, some people asked about ordering info. The email address to which you can make orders is on the right sidebar. Julie (my sis-in-law) is much more on top of emails than I am, so you should get a reply super quick. ;)
Enjoy and thanks so much for all the nice comments!
As for all the last-day hoopla I'm in between running to and from all kinds of celebrations with my trusty side-kick Lu (her last day was yesterday). I cannot believe my boy is going to transform into a high-schooler as of right this very minute (it's noon). I also cannot believe that when I was giving him a hug last night he looked me almost directly in the eye. He's like an inch shorter than me! (and that means a lot since I'm 6 feet tall). That fact sure made his eyes sparkle.
Oh man I love that I get to be his mom. And those girls too. Boy howdy. I know they're not perfect. I know they have issues (especially in the hearing/listening category). I know I get on their cases a bunch (which often times they deserve:) But when I go watch them sleep each night my heart still skips a beat. After almost fourteen years of being a mother, that heart of mine overflows more than ever with love for who they are, and who they are becoming, and who they help me to be.
I feel so blessed to be their mother.
