I sent my son to buy a new shirt Saturday to wear today. He bought two because he couldn't decide. I suggested one. He wore the other, of course.
I have a great punch recipe I can't wait to share with you. I mean this is a wonderful punch, a break from the sherbet in the 7-Up. It got rave reviews and we ran out of it before the event ended. However, it was a little unruly, which I'll explain another day when I share the recipe. But trust me on this; it's a good punch.
We shared this event with my son's friend and soccer teammate. We each had video presentations that we played on separate screens. My husband worked hours and hours on ours. At the last moment last night, he discovered that the sound wasn't coming through on half of our production. He stayed up until 4 am trying to fix it. No good. Anyway, it was a cute production, but it's difficult for me to watch without crying because it bounces back and forth from pictures of me rocking and singing to him to watching him pole vault perilously this year, to the awkward little 11-12 year old stage, to being baptized as a teenager. How can my little boy be all grown up?
Well, here are the explanations of the slideshow pics: The strawberries dipped in school colors are my specialty. They are my specialty because they are easy and pretty and not a lot of people have done them around here like this. It is the only clever thing I did for this event, so I'm patting myself on the back for this one.
The tiny Michael Jordan shirt on the memorabilia table is cute because my son's name is Jordan Michael, and we got him that shirt when he was a baby just for fun. I normally don't like words on shirts, but this was cute in this instance, I think.
Yes, that is a plaster cast on the table. When he was 22 months, he jumped off the sofa and broke his right tibia in a spiral break. Since then he has broken his nose three times, injured his hip and back, hurt his ankle ... you get the picture. Never sick, but always injured, it seems.
So here are the pics, and if you scroll onto a picture, I think it stops for you to look at it, and you can speed it up or slow it down, I think.
