Kalie had her preschool graduation yesterday. I can't believe she is off to Kindergarten in the Fall. And I also can't believe that after four years of Tues/Thurs. morning drop-offs, I will no longer be driving to Joyful Heart Preschool.

It seems like just yesterday we were dropping Caleb off at Preschool and Kalie was still in the baby car seat and everyone oh-ed & ah-ed over her massive curly hair (which is completely gone). We will miss Mrs. Carlson and Mrs. Kuka and are thankful for the love and patience they have given our kids!

She is going to be huge the next time we take graduation pictures!
Hats off to you Kalie dear...we love you and thank God for you everyday!

Stewart Update

Well, it's been awhile since I blogged but it's not for a lack of trying that's for sure. For the past three weeks, life has been crazy at the Stewart House. The last thing I blogged was Brian's Birthday on May 3rd. The weekend after that was Mother's day. We went to my brother's house in Wyoming Minnesota and he cooked an amazing dinner for us. It was really a wonderful treat. He works at Donatelli's in White Bear Lake, Minnesota (they are going to be featured on the Food Networks' "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives". They start taping this Sunday.) He also entertained us all by driving my kids around on his dirt bike.

The following Monday, Brian's mom flew in from California to stay with us. Which was wonderful.

On Wednesday, Amy and I left the U.S. and flew to Switzerland to see Kim for the Ultimate Mom's night out! It was wonderful. Sooooo good to see Kim and the rest of the Weed's. To live their life for a few days and make some memories was so awesome. We even got to go to Paris for the weekend. How many people get to say "I'm going to Paris for the weekend"? I felt lucky to have Kim and Amy to share the experience with.

Then this past weekend, we went to my mom and dad's in Mahtomedi and got caught in a storm. Monday morning was the Memorial Day Parade which goes right by my parents house and lasts for all of 15 minutes, But it's a tradition and the kids love it.

So there you have it. Three weeks in a nutshell!

Wonderful weekend!

Happy 32nd Birthday Brian!
This weekend we celebrated Brian's Birthday. It was wonderful! My mom and dad took the kids for us and we got to sleep in and we went shopping, to a movie and to a fabulous dinner at our favorite restaurant, Bellenotte! I was so fun to finally spend some much needed "us" time together.
So, Happy Birthday my love! Here's to another year of growing older together!
