It was hard to believe the last week of school was upon us.
Oma came to stay with us for a few days while Chris traveled to Ohio for work.
Jane and her mom picked out some beautiful flowers to plant in the mailbox area as well as the big planters. Even after a full day of school, Cam was ready to help put the flowers in their place. To help keep the dirt off of Cam's power chair, Jane had pushed the arm backwards. After the planting was completed, Oma and Jane gathered the materials and started up the driveway...Cam could not stop laughing and when asked why he was giggling, he had a tough time talking until finally his mom realized why. Turns out she had not brought the arm of his chair into drive-able mode, so he literally couldn't move. It was quite some time before the hilariousness of the situation wore off.
The next few evenings were full of grandma/grandson activities including the Passport monthly gift from Auntie Karen. Oma left on Wednesday and we were sad to see her go, but we knew a trip to the cottage was on our agenda for Saturday.

The afternoon went by much too quickly and the theme of the day was "see you later" vs. "goodbye." Although we neglected to capture a group picture, it further solidifies the fact that we will continue to see our friends. Cam had already indicated that his Meadow Brook family would be at his house for the cookout every year and we will "add in" the Northern Trails group.
Friday marked the final day of our 4th grader's school year. Since this was the last time the current 4th grade students would be at Meadow Brook, it is tradition that the classmates parade through the school. Cam's teacher sent the pics to us and said that our son was all smiles.

Although the weather didn't cooperate, time with family and friends brought the sunshine inside. Oma, Opa, Auntie Jo, Aunt Joyce and Uncle Joe, Annie and Aunt Gay all shared cake and ice cream together with us. Hanging out and relaxing certainly is a great way to enjoy a birthday.
Jane did say her favorite moment was hearing her son sing, "Happy Birthday to mom!"
Oma was telling Cam that after he left for school one morning, she got ready to take a shower and shut the bathroom door. When she got into the shower, she realized that Stella the cat was staring at her and she had no idea how Stella had gotten into the bathroom. Cam's immediate response...
"Oma, were you embarrassed?"
(that Stella was looking at you in the shower?)
