Trip to the Zoo

We took the kids to the zoo one evening last week. Here are a couple pictures.


At first I complained quietly to myself a lot about having to go to T-Ball practices and games, but I have found myself enjoying them more now. Towards the end of the season. Jaxson has played his hardest and tried to be a good a sport. Except the time he had to bat with a pink bat. Any bystander would have thought it was the end of the world. And then we threatened him with his life and being grounded for the remainder of the summer. He did use the pink bat, but not with a smile on his face. All in all it has been a good experience for all of us. A special thanks to Coach Karen and to all of Jaxson's cheerleaders!

Emersyn the Ballerina

Emersyn is taking a Jazz/Ballet class just for the summer. I love watching and she loves dancing! The class is 45 minutes long each week. At first I thought maybe that would be a tad too long for 3 years old, but all the girls in the class love it so much, none of them lose interest. She loves to wear her pink "dancing dress" and her ballet slippers are so tiny and cute!

Girl's Camp

I have been consumed by Girl's Camp preparations lately. My poor kids. Every time they ask me what I am doing I say "It's for Girl's Camp." Today Emersyn brought me this little flower. I said "Wow, it's beautiful! Thanks." And she said "It's for Girl's Camp!"

Kindergarten Graduation and Binder

The graduation program was so cute and the teachers, staff, and PTO went out of their way to make it special. They sent out invites, the kids sang a few songs, they received diplomas and little bears, and they even had refreshments afterward. We are so grateful to Ms. Bell who made learning fun for Jaxson this year and who was so patient with his boisterous personality!

Mr. Gauchay, the principal, interviewed a couple kids and Jaxson was his first interviewee. So funny! I was so mad that we forgot to take our video camera.

Our little graduate!

Jaxson and his best friend, Kyle.

Jaxson and his teacher, Ms. Bell.

This is what I put together for some of Jaxson's papers, art work, and report cards. So easy. I put a picture of him on his first day of school and had him write his name. He loves to look through it and it was so easy!

We Love Summer!!

Our favorite time of year! We got a cheapo water slide and the kids have loved it!

Emersyn wanted to look like a kitty cat so she drew some whiskers on her face. Not washable.

A Visit From the Tooth Fairy

Jaxson FINALLY lost his first tooth the other night. The thing was loose for a long while and the replacement has been growing behind and slightly off center for some time. Hopefully, it will slide into place on it's own. He was very excited to find a 5 dollar bill under his pillow the next morning!
