Once I saw this precious baby girl of mine walking with her graduation hat on, I couldn't help myself. My eyes started tearing up. I was so proud of what she had accomplished. Then I wished I had grabbed one of those tissues. It then occurred to me that there's nothing wrong with setting an example for our children by having them "graduate" from pre-k. It will prepare them for future graduations. My whole outlook completely changed. It was a day to remember. :)
Well, at noon we went on-base to the spouse appreciation picnic. They had hotdogs, hamburgers, chips, cookies, & water. (a diet's dream of a meal, eh?). They had bingo, door prizes, free stuff, etc. They even had a real firetruck where the kids could spray the fire hose--Anna loved that!
After that Anna went with Tyler to the library & I went shopping at the commissary. It was really nice being able to buy food that was more conducive to my low calorie diet. (I actually have food in my kitchen that I can eat! Hooray!)
We came home & Anna swam while I put away groceries and Tyler headed off to SAMS. When he returned, he brought me a bouquet of lovely roses. I was so surprised = big brownie points. He's so good to me.
Then I ran some more errands: ALDI & Wal-mart. I wanted to buy an egg crate to go on our guest bed, but it cost $35 for a full-size egg crate. CRAZY EXPENSIVE!!!!!!!! I just couldn't do it.
Then Tyler & I watched the second half of ELIZABETH, THE VIRGIN QUEEN from the BBC. It was interesting. I've always been fascinated with the story of Anne Boleyn & her daughter Elizabeth. Fun stuff.
