Going, Going, Gone!!!

Treyson hit his first home-run tonight!!! He couldn't be more excited, and I couldn't be more proud. Way to go, Bud! (Thanks for letting me brag my boy up!)

End of School Wrap-Up

I'm absolutely amazed that school is out for the summer already! Where did the time go? Before I know it, my "little" boy will be a middle schooler! AAAGGGHHH!

The last couple weeks of school, the kids had a number of programs. Tanner's wonderful teacher put on a Mother's Day program in her classroom. The kids sang a number of songs and read cute letters to each of their moms. Tanner had warned me that I might cry a little bit; he knows me so well. What I wasn't expecting was for him to get a little teary-eyed as well. It was something I'll always remember. The whole 1st grade also put on a program for their parents. The music teacher at the school is amazing and did such a great job. Tanner has loved the songs that they've been learning.

Mrs. Cynthia Dunaway-teacher extraordinaire

The fifth-graders performed a patriotic program for the whole school the day before school got out. At the program, one fifth-grade boy and girl from each class was presented the "Hope of America" award. Each teacher is suppose to select a boy and girl who does well in school, is friendly and accepting of others, and is well-rounded. Treyson was pretty excited that his teacher chose him to receive the award. Nate wrote a nice little tribute about Treyson that we read at the assembly. We're so proud of Treyson and the good student he is. He loves school and has had such an awesome teacher this year.

My Toothless Wonder

Isn't this smile cute? Tanner's been keeping the tooth fairy extra busy these days! He's lost three teeth in the last three weeks. Thankfully he's running out of teeth (for awhile, anyways)!

Quincy Takes The Stage

Q loves a crowd. Q loves applause. Q loves being the center of attention. Is it any surprise that she LOVED her very first dance recital? I was so proud of my little girl up on stage plie-ing away! My eyes totally filled with tears (I know I'm cheesy), but Nate was smart enough not to point that out. Looking forward to many more awe-inspiring performances.

This is Quincy's darling teacher, Vandi. We love her!

Quincy-girl turns 4!

Our little princess had her 4th birthday yesterday and I'm amazed at how fast another year has gone by. We absolutely adore this little girl; sass and all. She has brought such a sweet spirit into our home. She keeps all of us on our toes and constantly laughing with the cute things that she says. The boys adore her (even through the teasing), and are her knights in shining armor.

She's been begging for months to have a birthday party, and how could I resist that cute face? She finally decided that she wanted an "art" party. Thankfully the forcast said "sunny" (they forgot to mention windy), and we were able to party it up at the park. We made aprons, played with play dough, did a little spray paint art, and decorated our own cupcakes. When the kids had all gone home, she gave me a big hug and said it was the best party ever. I got my four-year-olds approval, and that's all that matters. I love you, Q.
