An Epic Morning

Kate's school had a parade yesterday to kick off their Epic reading program. When ever I step into the doors of Kate's school I hear the word Epic. It seems to be their theme word. Being the nerd that I am I just had to look it up. Epic means surpassing the usual or ordinary. I think that is a pretty original and very appropriate word for a school. The parade's theme was characters from all different kinds of books. The kids were encouraged to dress up as their favorite book character. Kate chose to dress up as Super girl which I was thrilled about because once again we are getting mileage out of last years costume. It was hilarious to see because the parade went from youngest to oldest. The kindergarten classes consisted of all super heros:) but as the older kids came along you could see a wide variety of book characters. It was awesome. Kate was smiling and waving her little flag that she made in art class. And they had the drum team and drill team from the high school come out to give it a real parade feel. After the parade we went to visit her and she said "Mom the reason why I wasn't smiling so much was because I had to go pee." Simple explanation there.

Carson and I walked from our house to the parade hand in hand. Yesterday was emotional for me as it dawned on me that my days of doing these things and being there for these special events are most likely numbered. I keep praying for a job where I can continue to work from home or at least one close to home, but most likely I will be in an office at 9 am. You better believe I am cherishing every minute of these days where I can be close by.

Me and Captain America.

Mommy look!

My SUPER girl

He picked this tiny little flower for me on the way home.

This is his "I'm tired and can't possibly go on" pose. But he did. I was trying not to laugh but he would take about 10 steps and then bend over with his hands on his knees like he was  catching his breath:)


God has said, "Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you." So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper. I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" Hebrews 13:5-6
