It started off on Thursday ... Nicholas' school puts on a muffins with mom event at the local firehouse every year. We went to the firehouse that morning before school and enjoyed some light breakfast and enjoyed time together before I had to bring him to school.
Later that morning, I went out with mom and Rebecca to pick up some last minute things for the weekend.
That night, Nanny and Poppy arrived and the kids could not have been more excited to see them. Rebecca was over the moon.
On Friday, Nicholas and his second-grade class put on a Mother's Day Tea for all the mom's. They made us beautiful projects and sang us songs. It was not only special to spend the hour with him, but it was nice to catch up with the other moms too.
Saturday was Nicholas' Communion, and the weather could not have been any nicer. We all got ready in time and headed out around 11am to the church. All of the kids looked so grown up, and they didn't look nervous at all.
The kids did beautiful with the readings and carrying up the gifts. It was a small class, so things weren't rushed. It was nice to be able to get the pictures I wanted without having to wait for people to move out of the way to get good pictures.
After the ceremony, our family went out for a late lunch. It was a special day for Nicholas and we are so very proud of him.
So, since my weekend was full of "events," I didn't get a chance to create layouts on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday for the LOAD challenge. But, don't you worry, I will be getting those done. I never participate in LOAD for the grand prize, I participate in LOAD to get scrapbooking done.
These two layouts below are from last Wednesday and Thursday.
Thanks for stopping by!
