Palmer's preschool teacher was so sweet to organize a special tea for the mothers of Palmer's class. Palmer worked for several weeks to put together various items needed during the tea and often spoke about the pending event.
On the morning of the tea, Palmer requested I wear "a dress and a ponytail". He came downstairs in his "daddy jacket". Upon arrival at the school, it was so sweet to see all of the kids waiting patiently at each of their tables for the mothers to arrive.
When I woke at 7am to tornado sirens, we quickly learned that more weather in the area was going to keep our family from rejoining for a bit longer...
I enjoyed an unexpected (but I'm not gonna lie- nice) quiet morning at home with a book and a meteorologist on the TV.
The kids had a little more cousin time:
We went to Fort Worth for a quick ice cream date to celebrate my mom (and a fabulous new place called Melt).
And mom, thank YOU for all you do. You are a rock in our family and an inspiration and example to my children. You taught me to be independent and adventurous and I thank you for the lessons you are now teaching to my newest generation.
