{Summer Is Finally Here}

I know...most of you have been out of school for days or weeks or a month....but up here in WA, school goes through the end of June!  Luckily we don't start until mid-September. And I guess I wouldn't trade the beautiful September days for the gloomy and depressing June weather we have had (up until 2 days ago...hooray for the sun!).

So Addy graduated from Preschool. She attended for two years and it is hard to see it end! I have a two year break before Ry starts up.

The kids helped pick out their gifts for their teachers this year.  Addy choose this pencil vase (the pencils are held together with a rubber band so they can actually be used!).

She did great at the end-of-year program.
Except for the part when Trev had to pull her off the stage to go to the bathroom and the teacher insisted on stalling the whole program because the next song up was Addy's favorite.  So sweet, but yeah...a little embarrassing! But she is a major singing contributor and did a great job!

Kindergarten here we come.  (um, really??...sniff, sniff)

Thank you Ms. Cindy for an incredible year.  Preschool is my favorite and Ms. Cindy pulls out all the stops to make it such an adventure!  And the projects....oh, the projects....we have a whole box full of keepsakes.  Love 'em.

And Carson finished up 2nd grade!

Ms. Martin was fabulous.  He has really grown this year...doubling his reading rate and really enjoying math and art. Now, if we could just keep his trips to the school nurse down to less than 3x a week next year!

Carson choose the 'Extra' gum gift for Mrs. Martin.

We celebrated the final day of school with a slurpee run!  Let the summer begin!

Ry learned how to 'Say Cheese!'

I love the small, medium, large slurpees! Looks like the sun was REALLY waiting until the kids were out of school!

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?

More about me here.
