1st grade

Dear Blake,

You are a 1st grader!  Today you had your walk through of your school and I couldn’t be there to take you.  I’m so sorry I couldn’t be there.  I really wanted to.  I had to work at my school and do my own parent walk through.  Gigi took you though and you had fun.  She sent me pictures of your teacher Mrs. McElroy and your classroom.  She seems nice!  You got to put away your supplies and see the gym and rhe lunchroom (where you get to sometimes buy ice cream!)  I can’t believe you will be in school all day.  I’m going to miss you all day.  I’m so glad we had all summer to be together and do fun things.  But I will miss you. 

I love you,

Mama

Vacation

Dear Blake,

We got to go on a great vacation to Jacksonville Beach to visit Aunt Christine and Uncle Bryan and then to Disney World!

You got to play on the beach and in the sand.  You got to go to Disney World we went to Magic Kingdom Epcot and Hollywood Studios and had to relaxing pool days.  We went to Mickey’s Backyard BBQ where you got to see Chip and Dale and Goofy and Mickey and Minnie and get their autographs.  You loved the Disney busses. Your favorite ride was the slinky dog roller coaster and the sevens dwarf mine train.  We had so much fun and I’m glad to have gone with all our family and see you so happy.

Love,

Mama

6 years old

Dear Blake,

Happy 6th birthday!  I can’t believe you are six years old time goes so fast.  It seems like just yesterday that we were in the hospital waiting for you to be born.  I’ll never forget when you were born and I just loved you so much.  I still love you just as much.  You are growing up so fast and you are into so many things like Mario and video games and playing with your friends.  In a couple of days you’re going to be done with kindergarten.  I’m just trying to do everything I can to remember all of these memories.  I love you so much!

 Love,

Little Free Library

Dear Blake,

I finally got my dream of a Little Free Library!  I ordered it and then we put in the pole and then attached the top.  Then we had an opening celebration with ribbon cutting.  Since I’m a teacher, I read a story to the kids and we had refreshments.  I had book prizes and giveaways.  Then you helped me cut the ribbon.  People got to choose books!  We had lots of neighbors and friends come to help open It!  It was a great day!

Love,

Mama

New Cousin

Easter 2018

Dear Blake,

You guys had a great Easter!  The day before Easter we went to Lincoln Way to the annual bunny breakfast and egg hunt that they have every year. We got to eat breakfast, see the Easter Bunny, and do egg hunts.  Your favorite part was when you saw the Easter Bunny and afterward he gave you Mario Happy Meal toys which is something that you have been wanting.

On Easter we woke up and went downstairs and you guys found your eggs and your baskets from the Easter Bunny. You got a lot of monster trucks and different toys inside. Then we went to church with Papa and Gigi and then we went to T T and Uncle Colin’s house because they were hosting Easter. We ate lunch and then we got Easter baskets from Papa and Gigi!  We had a great Easter. 

Love,

 Mama

Monster Jam

Dear Blake,

We recently went to Monster Jam for the first time because you and Owen are very into monster trucks.  When we got there we stopped at the little shop and got you a monster truck car.  You wanted El Toro Loco.  Then we went to our seats and we had to bring headphones to cover your ears because it was so loud. You wore them right away.  It was so cool to see all the cars come out and do different types of competitions and earn points and at the end there was one big winner.  We had so much fun!

Love,

Mama

Christmas 2017

Dear Blake,

You had a great Christmas this year!  You got everything you wanted!  You were a little sick on Christmas Eve and Day…you had fevers and throwing up so you felt sick but you ended up having a great time!  We had Papa and Gigi and Auntie Christine and Uncle Bryan and TT and Uncle Colin and Rory over on Christmas Eve.  We had dinner and presents and played white elephant!  

Before Christmas we took you to see Santa and you told him what you wanted.  We got to do a lot of fun things!

Love,

Mama

Bus

Dear Blake,

Recently you started liking school buses…maybe even more than you love garbage trucks!  You love your bus and know the number.  You notice all the buses driving by.  I had never been able to see you get on the bus until the other day.  I got to take you to the bus and see you get on.  We even followed your bus haha.  Then I picked you up from the bus too!  It was so nice to watch that!

Love,

Mama
