Last Day of Preschool...Forever!!!

I can't believe Avery is done with Preschool.  How is that possible??  It seems like yesterday that I was looking for the right school for her and that I took her for her 1st class and left with her crying, now she just walks in at drop-off so confident and happy to be there.  Smiling, quick "I Love You" back to me and she's in.  I feel so happy that she has thrived so well at school and she is so excited to be going to "Big" school next year but it's gone so quick it sure does make the tears come and the big smiles too!!

Here are the teacher gifts we made this year for her teachers and the staff. Thanks Kitty for the idea!

Last day pic before school

Ella wanted to join in too!

Smiles all the way to school

Pic with Ms.Kathy the Director and the most amazing woman to run a school I've ever met!  This school is nothing without her running the show!

Ms.Nancy, Ms. Kathy's right-hand and just as Amazing!  I'm so excited to be able to see these women for another 4 years while Ella is there.

Her class "Graduation"

Her sweet "boyfriend" Brody.  We sure will miss him.  They've been in the same class for the past 3 years

school got out a little early so we made a quick trip to avery's favorite after-school ice cream store, baskin robbins.  nothing like vanilla with sprinkles

cissy was over with nana and she was able to stay with us for the afternoon.  the girls played Awesome, like they'd never played together before.  we had an easter egg hunt in the house since we weren't able to get together for easter this year and i had about a 1,000 filled easter eggs it seemed.  they had a blast!

their baskets were full!

on the way to drop cissy off i got this pic of them thru my rear-view mirror...this pic describes avery & cissy like no other

and my backseat was full!!

what a Great last day of Preschool for Aves!

Past Couple Weeks

Look at what it means to have a Big Sister!  For both the little sister and the Mom!! Such a Great helper!

I seriously could eat her up with a spoon!

Tim and I ran the 5mile White Rock and Roll together...well, I met him at the end but we both ran it.  I ran my best time ever because I was trying to catch him :)  I'll just say I never caught him bcuz it was so dang hot and it was only 8:00 in the morning!!
yea, he's mine! 

so glad we could meet up with cort after the race!  nice job girls!

the shirt i got for the race was small enough to fit avery so i gave her mine and she LOVES it!  she's been wearing it as a night gown.  here she is so happy with tim.

after the race!

hanging out waiting for the jurneys to get back from riley's communion so we could celebrate.  some sweet moments with the girls

goofing off...we are so silly :)

maybe we should get her a mower.  she seemed to enjoy it.

kid chaos!  it's AWESOME!

the little bits looking on wishing they could get in the pool with the bigs...let us in

this one spends a lot of time in her the good life

here's what my shopping trip looked like the other day!  how cute are they with their purses!

coloring together in the morning after breakfast

 bike rides at night

tim and i went to a beer tasting seminar with his hops for habitat committe.  we learned about how to taste, smell, describe our beers and tried all different kinds.  tim loves the whole spectrum, but i'm still partial to wine and some of the light-mid beers like blue moon.

avery's last chapel at preschool.  i can't believe she's going to kindergarten next year!

we found a new fountain up at watters creek and the girls went crazy running around it and checking out all the goldfish in it!

my little goofballs running around with tim and i's shirts on their heads

my cowgirl "jessie" going to school

 she loves to play in our laundry basket

watching avery's b-day ecards from poppy.  they were pretty funny!!

coloring in our laundry basket.  she can't get enough of this thing...whatever!
