Rockin' to the 80s

Alex had his Spring Concert at Holy Apostles last week and sang all songs from the 80s which was fun and upbeat!  He's not afraid to sing and groove to the music!  Believe it or not, we actually could hear Alex's voice among all the kids on stage!  Way to go bud!!!   
Lookin' good in 80s themed attire!

 Alex was busy playing baseball with Dad so Sean and Mom had some quality time together too and we made SLIME!!!  So fun to watch my little scientist get so excited over his creation!  I had my annual meeting at school with his speech pathologist and they raved about Sean as a student and person.  What a great compliment to hear as a parent!  And they assured me that my little, reserved boy that started 4K in the Fall is definitely not the same shy kid anymore :)  Way to break out of your shell my Seanie Man! 
Mixing potions and making slime!
It's so gooey and fun!

 Grandma and Grandma Michna treated Alex and Sean to a special date night on Saturday.  They went out to dinner and then the theatre to see Junie B. Jones at the Children's Theatre downtown.  They had a ball together and loved their special date night with two very special people in their life.  It also meant that Mom and Dad enjoyed a fun night out without kids as well :)

Ready for our date, Grandma!

High Interst Day & More

May Crowning
Alex's 2nd grade class had May Crowning on Wednesday where all the First Communicants dressed up for the school and had a nice prayer service to honor Mary.  Everyone looked so nice and it was great to capture those moments on camera!

High Interest Day
Alex and Sean had High Interest Day on Friday which is a super fun day for the students at Holy Apostles.  I was able to volunteer and help out in Sean’s room.  They pained really cute Mother’s Day picture frames during their art session.  They made super yummy and healthy snacks during a session.  They ended their day with fun science experiments and relay races outside.  I was able to help out in one session Alex had so helped his group make Flubber.  He rotated with fun sessions such as camping, magician, explosive science which he loves and he even got to stand inside a huge bubble.  Such a fun day for the kids!

Mother's Day
The boys were so excited to spoil me on Mother’s Day this year.  They made me beautiful keepsake gifts at school and wrote such nice things in their cards.  In Alex’s words, “I love you more than my heart!”  Now that’s a lot of love!  We enjoyed brunch with my Mom and then Dave’s Mom treated us to the Brewers game where we sat right behind the Brewers dugout.  I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect Mother’s Day! 

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you to our amazing Moms!  They are incredible role models to us and to our kids.  We are blessed beyond words!!!   xoxo
Happy Mother's Day, Nana!

What a great game!  Manny Pina was doused with water after he hit a 3 run game-winning home run in the 8th.

Alex and Sean both walked away from the game with a ball!  What a great afternoon!
