But, Friday was the piece de resistance!! We went to the (one of 4) U.S. Premiere of Cars 2. It was at the base theater with popcorn and drinks ALL for free. There was also a costume contest (which got us into the theater wait-free, in front of 1600 people!), 3 of the kids won and got to meet Mickey Mouse. Radio Disney was there to entertain and give away prizes while we waited for the main evbent. Reagan was chosen to participate in the opening of the show. I was so proud of my brave boy on that stage in front of that crowd!! The movie was fantastic. But, more than that the whole circus of the whole event was just so much fun. Just one more perk of living here on base. I told Donk, I'm not leaving here. He can come back and visit us when he's transferred. wink.

Up first. the week ended with flip flops & smoothies ands Red Box/pizza night. Yep, we did survive.
It started with P.J.'s mini Olympics. A day chock full of school spirit and great kids doing their very best. To be one of 10 students chosen from your school to represent at a district-wide athletic event was so awe inspiring!! That's Bubba, the tug o war anchor in burgundy.

Are we the last schools in the US of A that are STILL in session?!? I think this one last week may just be my tipping point. You know I drive 800 miles per week schlepping the Bigs to and fro school?!? Monday was Reagan's one and only awards assembly... that I missed. P.J. was one of 10 students at his school chosen to represent Oakland at a district-wide Mini Olympics competition. So, Bad Momma had to go to that and forgo the Kindy fun. Today was Julia's assembly and tomorrow is P.J.'s. I'm (trying) to make up my absence to Reagan with some special Momma time after #1's assembly. A couple of cookies and chocolate milks from the cafeteria should do the trick, no? The rest of the week are "Half Days", otherwise known as Jenny is stuck in Suffolk for the day until the last bell. ugh. I'm so ready for this school year to be over. At least until the middle of next week and the brood is terrorizing my house and each other and I start counting down the days until the 2011-2012 school year. I know, I know, never satisfied am I.
These last few weeks may be draining, but they've been fun & eventful too. P.J. crossed over to Webelos 2 and Julia continued on her Brownie way...

dropped my cute little red slider cellphone into a diet Coke. Hmm, what to do, what to do? I did what any good Momma would do, I bought a cra**y replacement ( a fancy schmancy, not! gophone from Wally World) phone to last me until I can upgrade. Well, fast forward 2 more phones and my magical upgrade day arrives.
Enter my iphone. Bells chime, bird chirps, angels sing. Sigh. I love this techie wonder. It's allowed me to capture some great moments in just a matter of days. Like this one from the Bigs' SOL celebration...
And this one of Daddy and the littlest lady at Bubba's Cub Scout Bridging...
