Reflection over the last week

So I haven't gotten a chance to post in a week now and I never posted about our crazy weekend last weekend. We had a wonderful time last weekend with Madelyn's recital and Kathryn's baptism. Saturday morning before the recital, we took Madelyn to breakfast with her two best friends Jalyn and Logan. The recital was hectic backstage, especially for a four year old, but the girls had so much fun getting into their costumes. They did a great job on stage! After the recital, Greg and I gave Maddie flowers and she was so proud! Sunday at the baptism was vedry special to Greg and I to look out and see so many of our family and friends who were there to support us. There were even new friends we have made since the birth of Kathryn, work friends, and friends and family that drove great distances to be there with us to celebrate the sacrament of Holy Baptism with Kathryn! She did an excellent job and only gave a small cry about the water on her head. Sunday afternoon was the annual NICU reunion at Brookwood Hospital where Kathryn stayed from July to December so we went back to let her see all of the sweet nurses who took care of her! Dr. Mena was also surprised to see how big she had gotten!!

We spent the rest of this past week, just as crazy as the weekend. We both worked on Monday, then on Tuesday, I took the day off for Madelyn's end of the year school picnic in the park. Kathryn and I went to her school, we all walked to the park and spent two hours there with all of her classmates! She had a great time and I know that she will miss them over the summer. Also on Tuesday, Greg and I celebrated our eight year anniversary by going out to dinner!! We love our girls but we had a nice night out while Nini and Pawpaw stayed with them. Wednesday was the end of the year dancing party at school. Then Thursday was Maddie's last day of school. And on Friday, we took the girls on a much needed overnight camping trip away from our home (for the first time in almost a year). Like I said it was much needed but we literally packed the van full with the oxygen tanks and the concentrator and everything else. We had a great time and certainly needed a little relaxation, but it will be a while before we get out again!! I will try to get some pictures up from the weekend. Today we are just enjoying a wonderful Memorial Day and saying thank you to the men and women who put their lives in harm's way to defend and protect our country!

Faithfully, Kelly
