Friday Five - Spring Fever, Best Friends, Soccer and more

I'm joining Friday Five with Emmy.  Five thoughts and five pictures.

Five Thoughts:

1 - I dug out my flip flops and have been wearing them for a couple of days.  I'm SO over winter and ready for spring and the outdoors.

2 - Another spring thing I'm looking forward to is Spring Break.  I cannot wait for those days of sleeping in and not having to get my kids to school!

3 - What I REALLY can't wait for is Summer Break! Camping, swimming, warm nights, longer days - it all sounds so heavenly right now!

4 - Ambria has a consultation today that could change everything.  I'm extremely nervous.  I don't want to get my hopes up - but I'm afraid it's too late.  I will be crushed if they can't help her.

5 - Soccer season is upon us.  And although I won't have any kids playing this year - we're super excited to watch our RSL boys have an awesome season!

Five Pictures:

My heart broke into a million pieces when this boy was stolen to go start a new team in NYC.  But my faith in humanity was restored when he came back home this season. I cannot wait to see him back playing in the RIGHT colors. :)

Just because Ambria isn't allowed to snuggle up under a blanket with a cute boy to watch TV, that doesn't stop Hollyn from making herself nice and comfy with HER best friend. ;)

Mr. H from our school.  For the past 8 years that I've known him, I have only EVER seen him wearing shorts, sandals, and his lab coat (he's the science teacher).  He bought this suit for our annual food drive and told the kids that if they raised 2400 lbs of food for the food bank, he would wear a suit to school on "Formal Day" of spirit week.  The kids rallied and raised over 4500 lbs of food for the less fortunate!

Brielle at her Discovery recital.  Her group performed "Carrying The Banner" from Newsies.  It was awesome!

Cousins watching cartoons on the ipad.  It was too cute not to snap a picture.

You should totally come join Friday Five!

How was the consultation? My heart simply breaks for Ambria, and I have added you and her to my prayers. I hope that things can be helped very soon! Good job to your school for that massive amount of food that they were able to raise. That is wonderful!

I'm totally behind on blog reading, but I hope Ambria is doing all right!
