MADELINE AND BRIX
MAY 4, 2021
We watched little Brix one day and Madeline was so cute with him. He was not very happy when his momma left but Madeline just got on the floor and started playing with him and for a time, he forgot about being sad. Madeline still talks about the day she played with Brix.
MAKING THE PROM CORSAGE AND BOUTONNIERE
MAY 7, 2021
I was having such a hard time finding a pretty corsage for Peter’s prom date, so I decided to make both the corsage and the boutonniere. After watching a few videos and messing up a few times, I finally made something magical.
PETER AND SARA BEFORE PROM

I made Peter take a quick photo of us before we headed off to take prom photos.
MADELINE GETS A MASSAGE
MAY 8, 2021
Mike had the massage table out to give me a massage and Madeline climbed right up one night and said, “It’s my turn for a massage.” Mike gently rubbed her feet with lotion, and she was in heaven.
MOTHER'S DAY DINNER
MAY 9, 2021
Mike always makes me the best Mother’s Day dinner. This year he did simple and healthy and made a Caesar salad and tuna steak. It was delicious.
SARA'S FUN HAIR
MAY 12, 2021
I took my halo into Lexi to have her fix some of the coloring. After my haircut she put it on and styled my hair with the halo in. It was fun to walk in with short hair and walk out with long hair.
MADELINE'S NEW SWIMSUIT
MAY 14, 2021
Madeline’s new swimsuit arrived from Albion Fit and it was so cute on her. She wore it all afternoon.
FAKE LASH ORDEAL
MAY 21, 2021
RIGHT AFTER THEY WERE FINISHED and EYES ONE DAY LATER (totally infected)
I decided to try lash extensions after talking with some of my friends who had done it before. Right after I loved the way they looked but by the next day I was regretting what I had done. My eyes got red and poufy, and it was clear that I was allergic to the glue that was used. I spent the next couple of days in pure agony until I could go in to have someone else take them off. I will never do that again.
WALKING WITH GRANDPARENTS
MAY 23, 2021
Madeline loves to go outside to ride her bike. She got grandma and grandpa to go with her. They loved watching her ride her new bike.
Peter's Swim Season
This was definitely an interesting swim season for Peter this year. With the addition of a new coach, things were just not the same as in previous years. Peter found himself as team captain appointed by his teammates. Those boys really needed Peter's optimism and counsel while they navigated a difficult coach who was a little rough around the edges. Peter spent most of his season swimming in the long-distance events such as the 200 and 500 freestyle and rotated between the 200-freestyle relay and 400 freestyle relay. He also swam the 100 fly a few times and did quite well. Peter was such a hard worker in practice and for the first month of swim he was loving being back in the water with his teammates. The very first meet his goggles popped right off during his 500-freestyle due to a tight cap and more hair under that cap than in previous years. After the race his coach didn’t have anything nice to say and it was then that I knew that this coach would be a problem during the rest of the season. I was not impressed with the coach and the way he handled talking to his athletes, but Peter quickly learned that he needed to be respectful anyways. Peter PR’d in every event this season except for the 500 free. He was only a second away from getting his best time in that event. He dropped almost 10 seconds in the 100 fly and 5 seconds in the 200 free from his last high school season during his sophomore year. Peter wasn’t able to finish out his season since he started his new full-time job the day after graduation but at least he was able to get in 5 meets.
