Well, I did it again! I made it to everything I intended and it was a great weekend! Hope's party was just over the top! She had a great time and I am sure she is still talking about it...especially the clowns who were just the best! The 'ride' was just a little bit much but not too much for my special little Hopie! That was a real hit with the kids and adults.

I would post more pictures, BUT, I dropped my camera and broke it! I have terrible camera luck! So! You'll have to view Hollie and Deanna's links to see more pics!
After the party, I headed for Lindsey's graduation and it was great! She was such a cute little graduate! However, the moment every child waits for....her name to be called and walk across the stage...she declined that part! She was hungry and of course, we went to her favorite place..Golden Corral! Nevetherless, they will send her diploma in the mail anyway. It was a fun time.
After lunch, we went 2 hours away to the Motor Mile Speedway in Radford, Va. for a PASS South race that Jake and Deanna's car was running it. It was a great track. One of the best tracks we have been to. The car was running great! We qualified 6th. The top 10 cars draw for repositioning and Justin drew the pole! It was fantastic! We led the race for quite a few laps. A caution was thrown.....they always do double file restarts and the guy beside us jumped the restart and took the lead! We stayed in second for quite a while until the tire went flat! The pit crew did a great job changing the tire and we didn't even loose a lap! Came right back to fourth place until more tire issues and to make a long race short....finished 7th. A top 10 is always good, but the car was really better than that! A fun night at the races! Can't wait until the next one! But first, I have to have Mother's Day and go to Israel!
Rode back all night on the bus and made it home at 7:00am to go to church. (After having Bill stop at Wal-Mart at 11:00pm so I could buy a new camera!) Katie's dance recital was Saturday so Johnny represented us and went to the recital. He said he was so very cute, of course. She had spent the night with him so we went to the 9:30 service together. She is just so precious and so much fun.
Mother's Day lunch at the Georgian Club was special with Hollie, Pete the girls and Johnny. Katie was still with us since Deanna, Jake and Carson had not made it back yet from the race.
The short afternoon was spent packing for our Israel trip! I am so excited to be going. I hope to be able to post some pics soon from the Land of our Lord!
