Kindergarten Graduation ~ Part I

I can not believe that I am typing this post.  Time is flying by!  Yesterday Sophia graduated from Kindergarten.  It was a wonderful morning filled with special memories.  This is going to be a picture overload kinda post.  

There is my big girl walking out.

I don't think she is sure about all the people :)

The big moment!!

Here she is with her big cousin Charles.  They look like they could be brother and sister.  She loves her "Charlie."

I am so proud of my little lady.

Check out that huge grin...she had that grin every day.  I think it had all to do with her wonderful teacher Mrs. McCorvey.  We LOVE her!!

This is going to be a two part post...I think my sister was able to snag lots of good pictures too (hint, hint) so I'm going to try and get those from her...

Publishing Party

Yesterday we had a busy day at school.  Today I wanted to post about Michaela's Publishing Party.  Her class worked on a book together.  It was too cute.  They got the book published and yesterday they celebrated with their families.  

Check out the little podium...I wanted to steal it, it was SO cute.

Michaela and her teacher Mrs. Moenning.  She was a WONDERFUL teacher.  We just love her.

Michaela did a great job.  Each student read the part they wrote.  She spoke loudly and clearly.  I was so proud of her.

Every student received a certificate.

Daddy & Papa came to this party too!

I love this little lady so much.

Tea Party

Today was a very busy day at school.  Both of the girls had things this morning and thankfully they were not at the same time!  I'll start with Sophia's and post Michaela's tomorrow.  

Sophia's class hosted a Reading Tea Party.  They were able to invite three people to come and hear how they have learned to read this year.  It was so cute!!  Sophia was so proud to have us there!!

She read a book about Tim's Toys

They had peach & raspberry tea and cookies...too cute!

Her special guest was her Papa!!!!  After all the children read they could show their guests around the room or read to them.  Sophia chose just to sit and read to her Papa.  She LOVES her Papa.

I love this picture!!!

School Lunch

I have been promising the girls I would bring them lunch to school.  Well, better late than never, better never late.  I of course waited to the last week of school to do this.  The good part was they didn't care and the best part was my nephew was able to join us.

Here is my little hot date, Dan!

Sophia's class came in first.  Dan hid under the table when both the girls came in.  They were shocked to see him!

Michaela's class came in next.

The three amigos or stooges...take your pick :)

Pool Party

Today the girls were invited to a Pool Party for a little girl in Sophia's class.  The girls had a blast!!!  I am so thankful they love the water and are not afraid.  Both girls did really well.  It was a fun party.

Beach Day

Today after school we took the girls to the beach!  It was so much fun.  I promised them we would have some more beach days this summer.

The first thing we did was went and Mellow Mushroom.  They have the BEST pizza.  This Mellow Mushroom has a huge bus inside the restaurant and if you sit in the first booth your kids can play in the front of the bus.  Let's just say it was the best dinner ever. 

After dinner we headed out to walk on the beach.  It was a beautiful night (not too hot and a little windy).

Alright...I will admit I am not a lover of sand at ALL...however, I realize we live by the ocean so I am trying (key word trying) to embrace it.

What a beautiful picture of God's creation!!!

I pray they always are close.

My favorite little ladies!!!

I Can't Believe It

Just yesterday it seemed as though Sophia was just 10 months old crawling around.  Really in my mind and heart it was just yesterday, really it was!!

But the picture below was literally just yesterday.  Oh, my!!!

I can NOT believe that in just over a week my baby will be graduating kindergarten!!!  I am not ready for this.  I have to go now...I need some chocolate!

Happy Mother's Day 2012

I was blessed with a WONDERFUL mother.  Anyone who has met my mother loves her and it is no wonder why.  

She is lovable.  She is kind.  She is patient.  She is self sacrificing.  She is flexible.  She is forgiving.  She is gentle.  She is godly.  She is joyful.  She is emotional.  She is sincere.  She is caring.  She is funny.  She is beautiful.  She is smart.  She is resourceful.  She is creative.  She is crafty.  She is wise.  She is spiritual.


Thank you for being all that and more.  I am so grateful for all you do and the example you are to me.  I love you so much.

Flashback Friday ~ Michaela's First Haircut

May 2, 2007

It's Back...Flashback Friday!  I know you all were terrified that I was not bringing it back but here it is.  This one is from way back, Michaela's first haircut.  I could not even bring myself to take her I was so sad that day.  Daddy took her and even snapped a bunch of pictures for me.  She of course loved every minute of it.

How precious is that little face!

I think the tongue out is her nerves :)

Best part of the whole thing was the sucker!!

A few weeks ago she got her hair cut.  My how time flies!!!
