Took down my Spring table decor and packed everything away until next year.  Started working on my Summer beach-themed table.  This is one of my favorites because the dining room is painted a nice blue and the dishes and accessories compliment the color very well.

Got some Spring cleaning done today while I was in the dining room . . . mopped all the hardwoods and took down the sheers to wash and hang back up.  I also need to do that in the family room and our bedroom. 

So, these Senior Year "lasts" are totally killing me.  Monday night was the band banquet and Thursday night was the Dance Showcase.  Probably the last time T will ever dance on stage again.  It was very bittersweet and the senior dance was very beautiful.  I cried really bad and just couldn't stop hugging her afterward.  One of the mom's sitting in front of me was there to watch her son's girlfriend and she turned around, took one look at me & T and starting boo-hoo-ing, too.  The son plays lax w/ Cosmo and the mom said she didn't think she'd be this emotional. 

Tonight is the Alabama / Mississippi All-Star Showcase and at half time of each game they will announce the players that are recognized by US Lacrosse as "All-State."  Hopefully, Cosmo will have an extra special presentation to make during the half-time of the boys game.  He has a player that has been nominated for All-American.  It is a HUGE deal.  There have ever been only two lacrosse All-Americans for the state of Alabama (Brye for athletics and Jeremey for academics; Brye is now the captain of the Naval Academy football team).  All-American is the player who exemplifies all the best qualities of the sport.  I know Cosmo already knows if the kid got it or not and he's not saying.  I hope he did.  He's a very special young man and is a leader on and off the field. 

This may or may not be my last blog post ever.  I may not survive the Mother's Day activities my family has planned for me.  If it's not raining, the plan is to go zip-lining.  If it rains, I'd really like to see the Avengers and have a big bucket of popcorn.
