Our week and something fun

Well...where should I start, it's been a busy one. I'll start with Mother's Day which was lovely. I assumed my oldest son Nick was working but was delighted when he appeared at our house to spend the day with us. We all went out to brunch at a darling little restaurant about 30 minutes north of where we live. It was a relaxing day with my family.... the kind that's my very favorite.

William has had another really good week at preschool. We've had a little change in that when I bring him, he cries and doesn't want me to leave. The first day it happened I felt like my heart was ripped out of my chest...such is the nature of being a mother. The teacher told me later he doesn't cry for very long. Other than that he adores his preschool and the friends he's making.

And finally, tomorrow bright and early I leave by myself {and boy this mommy needs some time to herself right now } for 3 days away in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I'm going to a photography workshop put on by the Pixel Fairy Princess herself. I can't tell you how excited I've been about this weekend and have really looked forward to it for several months. I've got many questions and hope to eventually shoot better quality pictures and take my photography to a different level. The added bonus is that it's really kind of a mini blogger get together because I get to see Lea again, meet Michelle, Colleen and Steffie!!!!! I have no doubt it's going to be fun...I'll be reporting back next week about the weekend. Have a great one!

What a perfect Mother's Day you had!

It's so hard to leave your children when they cry for you. It will get easier on him, I'm sure. Glad to hear he still likes preschool too ;0)

Have fun at your workshop!!
