Today is the big day. The big day of celebrating at the Harrell house. And it was underway at 5:50AM.
FIRST UP: FOUR!!!! Jaley was up and ready to start celebrating her 4th birthday. By 6:30AM she was all dolled up, with braids and headbands and glitter in her hair. She is truly my "girly girl." I got her off to school - along with enough cupcakes to feed an army. And her partying will go on all day. Nana is surprising her and taking her out for lunch today at Red Robin (Jaley's favorite). This evening we have a picnic planned for the pool - followed by (more) cupcakes, ice cream, and presents. If that isn't enough - there is her party on Friday evening. I'm saving this post - in case my kids ever gripe about not being spoiled (he, he).
NEXT UP: FINALS!!!! School's out for summer. I finished my final final this morning. I already got my grades - all A's. Better than the grades is the break. I'm only taking one online class in the fall - so it will be a very easy term before the real start in January. As for nursing school, my application is ready to turn in. I just need to send it. Then the long wait - 12 weeks - to find out if I'll be a Tar Heel again. Cross your fingers. Either way - it's summer now and time to kick back. Bring on the wine.
LAST UP: FOREVER!!!! Today is Emily and Marcus's wedding day. The news from St. Lucia is that it is beautiful and relaxing. Scott, the parents, and the wedding couple are enjoying themselves in the tropics. The wedding is at 5PM right on the beach - how romantic. I look forward to seeing pictures of the big event and to the reception in Raleigh in October.
AND THE BONUS: WALKING!!!! I posted on Tuesday that Mick was close to walking. I wasn't kidding. He started walking on Wednesday. He will be ready for the track team soon. My little baby is growing up fast. I better snuggle him now, because I won't be able to catch him pretty soon.
As I said before July 27th was going to be a big day at our house. It hasn't disappointed and there is still plenty of day left.
That is life in the stroller lane.
