School Field Day!

Mt Loafer has a school field day every year and this year I was able to volunteer at the bounce house!  The kids LOVED it and took every chance play in it, in between classes coming and going.  It was nice to spend some time at school and to get to know Dorothy's friends better!
Bounce house fun!!!

Preston graduates from Kindergarten!

I want to cry writing this!  My sweet little boy finished Kindergarten and broke my heart because he is growing up so fast!  Mrs. Petersen was his teacher and she was the most wonderful teacher ever!  Preston was so cute in his program he knew every song perfectly!

Spring Violin Concert!

The kids had their Spring recital where they learned classical music and played duets with other students.  I am so proud at how much the kids are progressing and what talented musicians they are becoming!!!

End of Year program!

Dorothy had her end of year program and was as cute as they come!!!  I had 9 different mom's come up to me afterwards and tell me what a cute little ham she was!!  My niece Kyra said her teacher commented on the cute girl in the polka dot cardigan and red pants saying "she stole the show, and was so cute!"  I just sit back and watch her with pride because she is so comfortable in her skin and such a talented girl who is beautiful inside and out!!
Me and my little Dot!!!

Tiny Dancer!

Violet has been taking dance all year, the year end recital will be in June but they got their costumes this week.  The dance they are doing is BEYOND cute!  They dance in flower pots at first and the costumes are flower costumes.  I just adore that little girl!

My sweet little boy!!!

Preston is my tenderhearted little boy!  He always comes up and hugs me and kisses me on the cheek!  He is always so kind to Ruby and cannot walk past her without giving her a kiss!  I am so glad that he is apart of our family!
I love him!

Walk-a-thon and May Day!

When it rains it pours, Preston and Dorothy had a school fundraiser where they walked for an hour and a half.  Dorothy walked 6 1/2 miles and Preston walked 4!!!  I was so proud of them and was there the entire time cheering them on!!!  I then raced up to Violet's preschool for the annual maypole dance!!!  We raced back to the school to help out and then off to run kids to after school activities!!  Some days my job is VERY busy but I love every second of it!!!

My little Violinists!

The kids have been taking violin Dorothy for 4 years, Preston for 2 and Violet for 1.  Violet finally earned her real violin and has started plucking songs!!!  I have such a love/hate relationship with this instrument!  I love that my kids are so musically talented but let me tell you EVERY violinist has a VERY dedicated mother who sits through lessons and practice after practice!!!  I hope someday they will appreciate my dedication!  Sweet little Ruby has no idea yet but she will start taking lessons in 3 years!!!
