{The Day of the Bear...

Okay, so it all started this morning when I went for my jog. I was running back behind Broadmoor Elementary jammin' out to my music, completely oblivious to the world around me. All of the sudden, I see two beady eyes glaring at me from behind a tree about 25 feet away. It was a mama bear with her cub! I stopped what I was doing and started to back away slowly when she took three big leaps right for me! Luckily I was near someone's home and rang their doorbell and they let me in until she passed. I was still shaking 2 hours later!

When I got home I told the boys all about my near death experience, hopped in the shower and Todd and I went to work in the garage rearranging, organizing etc... We decided to break for lunch at about 1:30. Todd finished before us so he went out in the garage to finish up and I hear him yell, "Hey you! Get out of here!" I thought someone was taking off with our lawnmower or something??! Then he yelled to us to come see the BEAR digging through our trash in the garage. She had two bear cubs with her and she wasn't at all worried that we were 5 feet away screaming and carrying on... Crazy! What are the chances?

...and this shot is just because!

{It's that time of year...

Kindergarten graduation that it... It was Jackson's turn to walk the stage to get his Kindergarten Certificate. What a hoot! The Master of Ceremonies was Joe Cole from Fox 21. The kids sang songs, recieved thier certificates and we watched a short slideshow of the kids in action this year. Short and sweet. Afterwards we hit Red Robin to make the day official!

He is the class of 2021. It seems so far away but I'm sure it will be here before I know it (and well before I am ready!). This whole year was a learning experience for me. It was full of fun, frustration, and a whole lot of laughs.... little boys are just a different breed!

I can't wait to play with the boys all summer long. We've got lots to look forward to!
