Tomorrow is the big day! Ally graduates in the morning and I am still not ready for it! I guess I will just have to take lots of pictures and video.

Well, Ally had her last soccer game yesterday. It rained for just about all of it, and the poor little thing isn't used to playing in the rain. :) Most of the parents were heading to the pavilion for shelter while the kids started their game on the field. But when Matthew and I turned around to see Ally following us, he told her that she should be with her team. She looked back at them on the field and said "should I?". She did join them, but it took several minutes for her to realize that she was already wet, and to just play! We are still not sure if there will be a second season of soccer for our Ally Grace.

I can't believe that Ally is just about finished with her kindergarten year! I knew that I would have a hard time with her starting school, but I thought once she was past her first year, that it would be easier. For some reason, knowing that she will be promoting to the 1st grade class at church this Sunday was harder for me to take than I realized it would be. Does it ever get easier? First grade sounds so much bigger than kindergarten. Why? I guess maybe because she is now in children's church with the kids up to the 5th grade!! I'm hoping that making this change at church now, will help prepare me for when she actually starts school this fall.

I had such a wonderful Mother's Day!! As we were getting ready for church, Ally admitted that she had planned breakfast in bed for me and was a little disappointed that I was already up and half-ready for church when she woke up. Since we were running a little behind this morning, we decided to wait until after church to open my gift. When we got to church, they had a 3 minute video of the kids for all of the mother's to watch as we fixed ourselves a plate of breakfast! Since we had been running late, I waited until after Sunday school to participate in that. It worked out well, since the first service seemed to run a little longer than usual, and we had to wait for them to finish. We had a great service, like always, and then Matthew and the kids took me out to lunch. On our way, the kids each gave me a craft that they had made for me at church. After eating more than I had room for, we came home and the kids gave me a very special gift. First of all, Ally had made me not one, but two cards!! One had a short poem in it that she had written. I opened my gift...2 Willow Tree figurines! I love those and have a couple that Matthew has given me over the past few years. Today, I was given one of a little girl and one of a little boy. I found out that Ally had planned several days ago to go and get these for me. She picked them out and had wrapped them. Also, in the bottom of my gift bag, was a picture album, a bracelet and money! :) Ally was worried that her daddy wouldn't get her to the store in time for Mother's Day, and she wanted me to have something special for today. So, she put some of her special things in there for me and also money from her piggy bank. She is such a sweet, giving little girl!! I don't deserve such a special daughter!! For so long, all I cared to be "when I grew up", was a wife and a mom! I just never dreamed that I would be so blessed!!!
