Anyway...I posted yesterday that Blogger wouldn't let me upload any pictures. Not sure what was wrong, but as I tried again today, it worked perfectly! Whew! I didn't want you all to think I had given up on my blog. I haven't. Just needed a break I guess.
So...since I last posted, we have been keeping busy. Darbee is nearing the end of her school year and is very excited about her graduation. She is growing so tall and I can't believe my baby is nearly done with her first year of school.
Here she is on the morning of her cap and gown pictures. Yes, you read that right. Cap and gown pictures. She was so excited.
I received the proofs this week and let me tell ya....my heart skipped a beat. They are absolutely adorable. I can't wait to share them with you.
The weather has been warmer and we are really enjoying that. Darbee loves being outside. Me-not so much but I will go out some.
We have already enjoyed our first picnic.
I pulled out an old quilt and we headed up to the lake.
There was a nice breeze blowing and it was a great afternoon.
Hubby tried to teach Darbee how to skip rocks.
She tried sooo hard but hasn't quite mastered that skill yet.
I know it won't be long with her determination and she will do it.
The warmer weather has allowed us to have outside playdates too!
We had a fun day with Bayleigh and Braxton and Ms. Stephanie.
We enjoyed lunch at a local Chinese restaurant and Miss Darbee learned that she LOVED their rice and sweet and sour chicken. She now asks all the time to go back there.
I guess eating rice with a large soup spoon makes it better huh?
These two girls have so much fun together can't you tell? Ha!
We have even had fun when it was raining too.
Darbee begged to put on her rain gear and play in the puddles.
I couldn't say no.
She had the BEST time.
Oh the simple pleasures of being a kid.
Papa has now finished his part of the playhouse.
It is done.
Now comes the hard part for us....Painting. Ugh...
We have to paint the trim, the porch and the inside.
Look at the counter Papa built. This will end up being the sink and counter.
We did get the door painted. It's a bright lime green.
Sorry for the shadow.
We have a door knocker and a metal mail box to add to the door.
It is going to be so cute!
The latest news is Darbee's eyes.
She had an eye doctor appointment in Atlanta this week.
She did great. She got a great report. Her eyes look super healthy and her prescription was only increased a little bit.
She was a little nervous, but the nurses and doctor were great!
This was a pediatric doctor so they knew how to make her laugh!
They even had child size disposable sunglasses. They were so cute!
The hardest part was choosing glasses.
I love the brown ones that she wears now. We will more than likely have new lenses put in those but Darbee wanted a new look. I don't blame her. BUT...picking them out was a tough job.
I got many looks like this. smile.
Thanks to Nana's opinion, we finally decided on several pair as well as a cool Hello Kitty pair of sunglasses. They should be back in a week or so. Can't wait to show you.
I think that's about all for now.
I promise to do better and update again soon.
I hope all of you have a great weekend!!
