He then limped on his one un-casted leg super fast, like some kind mutant dwarf into the hall and I heard a lot of rumbling and shifting from his room. He hobbled back in with my mother's day present that he made at Pre-school, that he had kept secret from everyone for over a week. A picture frame with a picture of he and I at his birthday VIP day at school. He was so excited and so sweet. One of the best Mother's Day ever.
I didn't feel like going to church. Derek still can't sit in the primary chairs with his super-cast on. Jeff and I have been switching off. And this was Jeff's week to teach Sunday School. Jeff texted me right before sacrament meeting and told me to come up. I didn't really want to, but I put Derek in the stroller and got there just in time. Just in time to hear Clint give a talk about mothers. His mother, in particular. Another surprise that Clint and Jeff kept from me. But a very nice one. Clint did great. He is so articulate and confident. I loved his talk and was proud of him, and so grateful to be his mom.
My neighbor came outside to show me her new laptop that she got for Mother's Day on my way home from church. I am excited for her.
I found stolen flowers on the kitchen counter for my gift. As in stolen from the neighbors house, and the park down the street. I wonder if Jeff would have to pay a fine for getting caught... )That, along with the picture from Derek and the talk from Clint. I think I like my gifts better.
We came home and drove around Salt Lake City trying to find the "Mystery Gravity Hill" where your car allegedy goes up-hill backwards...The instructions were bad, and we couldn't find it. But we had a nice drive anyways.
We are having frozen B-B-Q Chicken Pizza for dinner. And I get some extra alone time to blog while Jeff carves a walking stick for Derek outside. All around, it's been a pretty good Mother's Day. It's a pretty good life.
