Happy Easter Weekend! I hope everyone gets a chance to appreciate the importance of this celebration. This week went by a little too slow, but still thankful, especially when you realize how close tragedy can hit. For those who have not had the chance to hear about the Jewish Community Center shooting last Sunday, that center is literally 2 minutes from the building where I go to work every morning. It is so close that when they held the memorial service this past Thursday, there was extra security around our parking lot to ensure safety. But more on this later on another post.
Jaelan had her Talent Show tryout this week and she made it. She sang a Leona Lewis song. One of her favorite artists. She also her final honor choir concert this week. She was pretty sick, but made it through. She has really enjoyed choir this year and is very excited to go on to the middle school level.
Xavi had her state exams this week. She missed one of them because she had a tummy ache, and had to go home early, but she was able to make it up the next day. Silly Xavi.
Also, today is Xavier and I’s 12th wedding anniversary 🙂
Oh, Aspen, here she is, having a break down at the park 🙂
She is excited about going Easter egg hunting later this morning with her Xavi and her friend. One of the things I like about Aspen right now is that she thinks that everyone she meets is her new best friend. She also thinks that everyone who has the same name as her friends are also her best friends, she is funny. Example:
She overhears a lady call her son Aidan. Aspen happens to have a friend named Aidan.
Aspen: Oh, he’s Aidan? Aidan is my best friend, he(she point to the stranger Aidan) is my best friend!
Me; No, Aspen, that’s a different Aidan, he is not your best friend.
Aspen: No, mama, you silly, Aidan is my best friend.
Me: Yes, but, not that Aidan. We don’t know this Aidan, that Aidan is a stranger danger Aidan.
Aspen: Mama, no, Aidan is my best friend. You funny, mama!
You can see where that conversation was going. But I think she got it for the most part. I think it’s cute that kids think that anyone can be their best friend. If they only knew 🙂
