Homecoming Dance

Homecoming Dance

The Oldest had her first high school dance recently. A lot of anticipation (both of us!) leading up to. Sassy took her shopping for a dress this summer– back when she started thinking about Homecoming attire (she may have actually begun thinking about it much, much earlier- as in Spring). Britton had a wonderful time and was home by 10:45- my kind of evening!

Doughnuts for Dads

As Mr. Robinson reminded me, the last Kindergartener’s Doughnuts for Dads was held at school this morning.  Tend to hold on to these special occasions a little tighter now.  When I arrived (someone has to take the girls to school) Raynes ran over to me wearing his teal flip flops. To school. Perfect attire for this morning’s event.

One of my favorite babies made a special appearance adding to the Friday morning fun.

Total Eclipse of the Heart

A lot of suspense was built around the Solar Eclipse of 2017.  All the students at the kid’s school were given special glasses- and many parents came to view it as well. In our line of sight, it was only partial with the optimum time of 3:40 pm but it was pretty cool nonetheless.

Memorable Memorial Weekend

Memorable Memorial Weekend

Memorial Day weekend marked the first official weekend of summer 2017 so we packed up, I mean really packed up, Big Bertha (my Yukon) and headed southwest to The Coast. Paper towels, sheets, food, movies, books, swim suits, hats, lawn mowers, yard clippers, and sunscreen. Four days, three nights of boating, fishing, beach bumming and St. Teresa-ing. That’s the best way to jump start summer. Now, what to do with the next 2.5 months?

Graduation Nation

Graduation Nation at the Robinson household last week. I realized sometime back that a time would come when our children would enter all three divisions of their/my school on the same day. What I didn’t anticipate, was that first they would ‘graduate’ from each division. Triple whammy. Particularly as my last child leaves Preschool for the last time.  While I can’t wrap my head around my oldest entering high school, especially since it was only what seems like a few years ago that I was in the same high school, I know she is ready to fly.

Disclaimer- potential obnoxious parent bragging ahead: Both our girls have worked hard this year to earn high honor roll for the year. This means that their yearly academic average was an A- or higher in every subject area. This is no easy feat and not lost on their dad or me.

So all this to say, we officially have a high schooler, middle schooler, and kindergartner in the Robinson house….. now we’re going to enjoy us some summer.
