Busy as a bee!

This time every year is super busy, yet I always seem surprised for some reason! From Joshua's longer work days due to tutoring for the upcoming AP exams, to his annual soccer banquet, to a visit from Grams (Joshua's mom), to Jude's birthday party, to Mother's Day, and fundraising for the Uganda trip this summer, and, and, and, yadda, yadda, yadda... point being, I feel like blogging gets scootched to the bottom of the to do list.

So in an effort to be productive with my precious Jude napping time... I'm going to make this a photo heavy post to capture what all has been going on! ...

Joshua and I rarely get dressed up (so we make a point to take a picture just for proof that it happened!) but the MHS Soccer Banquet provides a great excuse! The banquet consists of the coaches handing out awards to players and a send off video for the seniors who are headed off to college. I pray God's direction and wisdom on each of these students as they are still learning who they are and are searching for who they put their faith in! It's a joy to be the coaches wife and have a little glimpse into the lives of these high school students. I'm proud of the impact my hubs has on his players and I'm proud of these kids too!
For the past 4 years it's worked out perfectly that the banquet always falls during the exact same time as when Grams is in town from Atlanta! Jude is always thrilled to haver her babysit and we're grateful too for her help!
Grams is one of Jude's most favorite people in the world, so he is thrilled when she comes into town for his birthday!
Our little Super Hero Jude turned 4 years old! Grams makes awesome birthday cakes for Jude every year and this year was no exception with a Super Hero themed rice crispy cake! He was thrilled!

All three of us in our Super Hero tee's for Jude's 4th birthday party! We're cool like that... or not so much! (o;  This kid is growing up crazy fast and it I'm searching for the slow down button in life, but can't seem to find it! We're so ridiculously blessed and grateful for Jude and the amazing 4 years he's been alive! 

I mean, seriously?! Could these super hero's get anymore cute?!

On Mother's Day we headed to the small downtown we live in and took some pics. I'm hoping that next year this photo will include a cute little chocolate colored babe in my arms as well! I told Jude that night, "Thanks so much for making me a mommy! I love my job!" to which he replied, "Sure thing! I love you mom!".... what a kid!  

I wouldn't trade my life as Jude's mommy for anything in the world! Seriously it's the most challenging YET rewarding job ever! I'm so grateful to be a mom and I'm so grateful to have a stellar mom in my life who is the epitome of motherhood and what I strive to be like!  
Okay, that's all I have time for for now! But there is more to share here soon on how Joshua's Uganda support raising is coming along... it's good stuff, you don't want to miss it!
