Joe graduated from UCM on Saturday. His parents and sister flew in on Friday night to watch him graduate. I stayed home and finished up odds and ends here while Joe and Claire went to Kansas City to get them from them the airport.
Of course, this was the weekend the weather decided to be super humid & hot!
Saturday, Joe and Claire went to bring his parents donuts and coffee while I stayed here (with Jenni) we pretty well waited till the last minute to get dressed. It was nice to be able just to be lazy. We went to New China to eat (where Joe used to work) Claire decided she was going to be crabby and tired so it took me forever to eat. She likes the waitresses and people who work at New China and they adore her as well so they held her for us for a bit.
Then, off to walmart! Its always a game of cat and mouse anytime our family goes shopping together.But thankfully this time it wasn't too bad...then home for about 10 minutes and off to graduation! Claire was great..at first.until she peed on me..then it was sort of downhill from there..sort of. I didn't get to sit and watch the graduation. I strolled her around in her stroller for awhile. We stood with Jenni and Dad for a bit...
Lastly, to end the night, we had steak and watched a movie "cowboys and aliens" sorta wierd in my book but pretty good all at the same time.
Sunday, we went to Moberly to go to Timberlake. We left the apartment at 5:30 am to go to get coffee, donuts and pick up the parents. There was ever so conviently an after church carry in. So we got a free lunch!
We went to Joe's friend's house to hang out for a couple hours then Hu Hot for supper and then home.
It was a good weekend..the days were long but the weekend was so short.
On the way home from Moberly, I had a nice long conversation with Joe's sister...it was really nice. We hadn't sat and talked like that for a LONG time.

Mother's day is ever drawing nearer. Clearly, this makes me think of my children..both of them. I miss Ella. I've been dreaming of her here and there..its rough. I recently decided to make a collage of both my girls. Its insane how 2 kids can come from the 2 same parents and look nothing alike. Ella is all Joe and Claire is all me..I wonder all the time how it would be with a 2 year old and a 1 year old..would Ella be a good big sister? Would Claire be less lonesome??
