Come and Gone

At the risk of sounding like an old lady, time just passes by too fast.
It seems like we were just in the depths of winter and all of a sudden it is almost summer (although you would not know it from the weather) and the year is over.
Tuesday was M's last day of preschool. I knew it was coming but it still kind of took me by surprise. We had a nice little good-bye party where the kids sang songs and M. got a memory book of pictures. He is home now for the rest of the summer and we will need to find some entertainment for him. I am hoping to spend lots of time in the park as well as schedule playdates.

In the same way, I was looking forward to my Mom's visit for a long time. She had not seen Baby AY since he was a little newborn and we were looking forward to spending time together. She arrived last Tuesday, but before we knew it, she was on the plane home again yesterday.  The kids had lots of fun with her. She arrived early every morning bearing gifts of bagels and muffins. M's priceless comment this morning when he found out that Grandma had gone home and there were no more bagels: "We will miss the food."
She took A. for some special girl time for a manicure and frozen yogurt. She was also there for her graduation. She took M. to school some days and came to his good-bye party too.
She spent lots of time holding and rocking Baby AY so I could have a break. She also bought the kids and me lots of gifts (plus a snazzy purple tie for my husband). All in all, the trip was a big success.  I just cannot believe it is over already. Thankfully, we will be seeing her again in August, so we do not have to say good-bye for too long. We will miss you though!

For those wondering about the pictures in my previous post, the correct order is M, A and then AY. Congrats to those who got it right!
