I have SO much to talk about. Whenever I go a few days, I sometimes get overwhelmed and forget the GOOD stuff. Like... we put the trampoline together.. and I got some cool shots of it going together.
See that cutie above? Yep her - Katelyn graduated 5th grade and will now be attending middle school next year. Her fourth semester grades were all straight A's. I am damned proud! She received all kinds of certificates & awards from citizenship to honor roll. The ceremony at the school was sweet, and they showed a slide show presentation that was available for purchase.. so happy I bought one. It was only $1!
Katelyn and Doug tossing the football.. my fav shot from the day - something about it just makes me think Superman.
In other news, after we took Katelyn out for some celebratory end of school year fun -read as CHUCKY CHEESE -
and... Doug decided not to go forward with speaking or obtaining custody of Amanda.
I urged him to make up his own mind, as he was wanting to base this decision on my reaction (health wise) and Katelyn's. I didn't want Doug to be able to come back years from now and resent us... make sense? I still, hope and pray he doesn't in the future.. guess time will tell. I'm relieved but feel a little guilt... guilty conscience by nature.. sure doesn't help when I wanted nothing to do with the kid after all these years.
Sigh. I know I'm not explaining how and why he came to the decision he did very well, but the stress has eased up astronomically. I appreciate (we appreciate) all your support and comments on the matter.
I'll end with a cool color shot.
other GOOD stuff to come tomorrow.
