ayM...I mean...May.

So unfortunately, with the craziness of this past month and the ensuing craziness to come in the next month and the fact that this is my only chance to get a quick update of the events of the last little while and the fact that I don't have my computer with my photos in Utah so I had to just dump them all in the post before I left...WELCOME TO MAY (in no particular order!)

The first unbelievably long run-on sentence should give you a feel for how organized this post, and our life, is right now!

We start off the journey at the end of May-- Rudy's graduation!!

The day before graduation was the senior gala. We had one last big party with some of our close friends. Us and the Davidsons all dressed up.
Me and Drea, my running buddy, playdate partner, and a good part of the reason I'm still sain after these four years! :) Love ya and miss ya already!Us with the Ruckers-- we sure are going to miss you guys and your amazing friendship these last 6 great years!! Congrats on Ortho! Meet up with ya in Tennessee! ;) We love you guys!

Mom and Dad Wolf came with such great love and support, thanks guys!
Dr. Daddy and his proud boys!
Rudy getting hooded! Wahoo!
Signing his life away to some dental thing ;)
President Rudy giving his great graduation speech. The dean got up after Rudy was finished and asked him to stand and told him, along with the entire congregation, that "I've done this for a lot of years and that was the best graduation speech I've heard, and I've heard a lot of graduation speeches!"

If you're interested in seeing the actual speech you can go to the above link.

The boys keeping themselves 'entertained' while I packed boxes.

Dr. Wolf with Dr. Bailey, the dentist he's working for. Dr. Bailey has been absolutely wonderful to work with and so kind. Rudy's actually staying at his house while he starts work and we're in Utah. We're really excited about our new adventure in Bedford, VA!

Now we move to Tucker's 4th Birthday on May 10th.

It's been so much fun to watch Tucker change from a little kid to a 'boy' this year. He's loving jumping and shooting and building and trucks and sports. He loves playing with his buddies and he's going to really miss his friends he's made in Richmond. He still loves Lightning McQueen and Thomas the Train. He continues to keep us laughing with his great sense of humor and amazing facial expressions. We're excited to move to a place with over an acre of land so he can RUN! He's the type of boys that runs when he's supposed to walk and jumps when he's supposed to stand. We love him and all of his energy. He's a great big brother and knows how to have FUN! We love you so much Tuck and we're SO glad you're a part of our family! Happy (belated) Birthday! :)

Thanks Nana and Papa for the fun build-your-own trains!!

LOVE that smile! That's the 'I-just-got-another-Cars-toy' smile! Yeeeeeaay!
Say CHEEEEESE! (Thanks, Dad, for the bunny ears!)

Moving on to a great graduation dinner that the wonderful Tettertons gave us. A great all-you-can-eat seafood buffet!! (Rudy's dream come true! :) We sure are going to miss having the Tettertons close, but glad we'll still be close enough to visit!

Rudy enjoying this a little too much??
Rudy's second day of graduation (May I said, no semblance of order with the photos). This was all of the VCU graduates. Dental is front/center.
The 11/14 Proof of all of Rudy's hard work! Way to go Doc!

The boys playing with Oma and Opa while we got to enjoy a little time on our own with the senior gala and other graduation events. Tucker sporting his new Cars helmet for his first bike! Thanks Oma and Opa!

Cooper sporting...well...his 'monster' attire.
Boys being boys.

Finding all the spiders for mommy... YUUUCK!

Hiding in their fort...
and Playing ball with Oma. Nice amidst all the craziness, there's still time to play!
What a MONTH!
The pictures are scattered, as well as my brain. The month was so full, I know I'm missing events and not fully describing the ones that I did mention, but that's as good as it's gonna get right now! :) We're finalizing an offer on a home and will be closing on ours on the 23rd of June. We're starting a whole new phase of our life that we're a little apprehensive (but mostly really excited) about.
Look out Bedford, here we come!!
