Jett Boy had his end of year performance at school. I took the day off and made sure I was there early to get a seat. He said John 3:16 all by himself. He did a great job and though he got a bit teased afterward my heart was full. He crawled past me, over my mother in law and into the lap of his great grandmother. They love each other in a special way. He walked hand in hand with her, then wanted to fix her water and then took her on a tour of his class. He loves Mamaw.
We have loved coming home each afternoon and enjoying time together on the trail. We ride and walk. We play on the stretch station and usually end our time calling Cullen to come get Jett so he doesn't have to walk up tho hill home.
I've been waiting for this young one to get old for a decade. That's right she's always been the young gal of the group and finally she's 30- the great equalizer. We skipped the big dinner on the Square and opted for a lunch beforehand with just the four of us.
For an early Mother's Day gift I took my mom to Memphis to see The Sound of Music. Somehow in all her years she had never eaten and Rendezvous so we began our night there. We moved on to have dessert at The Majestic Grille before the show. The show was one of the best I've seen. The sets were unlike anything I had seen before. We laughed we cried and we soaked up every moment together.
I signed Jett up for Tball.
I didn't know our coach or one person on the team.
We had our first practice last night and it should be noted this was the first time Jett wore athletic clothing. He went with an all blue motif and was proud of his choice, I should follow it with a "bless his heart."
Jett listened, followed directions and did way better than I expected.
At the end of practice he told his coach thank you and he would miss him until next week.
We had JettBoy's party a little later than normal this year. He wanted another train party but we decided that superheros would be a little less redundant that the two years before. We were in the church gym again this year and with superhero stations the kids had a blast.
Seeing Garth Brooks has been on my bucket list for years. I jumped at the chance to try and get tickets. My friend Haley was on it, and the four of us headed to Memphis for Cullen's birthday concert. He was amazing. I loved it. I knew almost every song and Cullen was a little lost, but we had a great time.
Mom always comes through making black eyed peas for New Year's Day. This year she served it up on a McCarty black eyed pea platter.
Later I shared this platter of food at my in laws who hosted us for a New Year's Sunday night dinner.
