Will May ever end? I'm tired...

This is why May is worse than December for me... With four kids there are so many events, programs, awards nights, dinners, recitals, etc. that I CAN'T GET TO ALL OF THEM AND I HATE IT! I am a "stalker mom" that shows up for scrimmages, games that don't count, dress rehearsals, watches the end of a practice, has a personal relationship with each coach and teacher--because that's just what I do and who I am (much to my children's dismay).

Just last night Garrett had his WXHS Tennis Banquet (which John and I both missed)...

Hailey made Madrigals at MPJH so she was part of the Madrigal Exchange at the beginning of the school's choir concert (which I missed--John ran over and saw the exchange but missed the picture, darn)...
...BECAUSE we hosted Hillary's lacrosse banquet at our house at the exact same time.
The food was catered from Texas Roadhouse (thank goodness) and Lauretta S. and Kristen H. helped A LOT (thank goodness) and Hillary was appreciative (amazing).

The Varsity Captains put the whole program and awards together.

Hillary won "Offensive MVP" because she scored the most goals this season (like a billion) and she was the most aggressive (averaged 1-2 yellow cards per game).

I'm glad I was at least able to make it to one event last night... hopefully next year Garrett will still be on the tennis team and Hailey's Madrigal Concert will be on a different night!

Alicia if you didn't have such talented, driven kids then you wouldn't have this problem :) You are a very good mom, your kids are very blessed to have you!!! (Taylar thought that was awesome that Hillary gets 1-2 yellow cards per game....she loves soccer too.)

Your kids are all so beautiful. Being a parent is not for the faint of heart...so many obligations and only 1 you. I think it's great however that your kids are getting to experience so many opportunities to develop their talents.

I remember looking at your family calendar and being so amazed! You are one organized, busy woman.
