PreSchool Graduation,Cephalopods and High Tea

I always hate it when I read blogs and the author hasn't posted a new entry for over a week...and now I am that person!!!

Lots has been happening and I need to catch up. First of all...
Pre School Graduation. My baby is moving did that happen so fast? I honestly can't believe he is 5 and done with pre-school. It is mind-boggling how fast time goes as you get older. Anyone else feel this way? Noah was so cute at graduation. The did a little play about a mermaid and her brother the merman on a search for a birthday present for their mom. Noah was the merman, Sam. They asked several sea creatures for birthday presents but it seems their mom is as hard to buy for as my mom (the woman that has everything). They finally met with the scary octopus and he gave them a great idea...a great big hug. It was a really cute play and all the kids did a great job. Noah knew every line, including the other parts. They then sang some sea-songs. Including "there is a cephalopod". Have you ever heard of a cephalopod? Not me, that is until my 5 year old explained to me what a cephalopod is. (a squid) How is that my 35 year old brain doesn't know this but my 5 year old son does? I figured it wouldn't be till junior high that I would feel like my kids are smarter than me but, it looks like it may come a lot sooner!

In other news. My sister Amy and I took treated our Mom to High Tea at the Grand America Hotel. Amy brought her camera but unfortunately we were all enjoying ourselves too much to remember to take pictures. Live and learn. Anyway, it was delightful. We all had raspberry herbal tea (which is the best raspberry tea I've ever tasted)and were given 5 little finger sandwiches, a scrumptious scone with strawberry jam, clotted cream (oh, to die for!) and lemon curd (again, to die for). If we hadn't been at such a fancy place, I might have licked the plate clean!!! Then they bring the dessert cart and you can have either a piece of cheesecake or your choice of 3 small french pastries. And to top it off, they throw in 2 huge strawberries with an enormous dollop of whipped cream. OH MY. We thoroughly stuffed and enjoyed ourselves. I recommend this for a great afternoon outing with your mom, sisters, girlfriends. Call ahead because they only serve it at certain times.

Tomorrow is the last day of school...what are we going to do all summer? Any suggestions?

fun updates! Noah is so cute - his teachers look like they go to a ton of effort. We finished school today...I was a little sad. And a little scared. What do we do all summer long? And just reading about high tea makes my mouth water... a lot....
