This is what several long days/weeks of packing and moving does to you! This poor boy was exhausted and this is how he insisted on falling asleep during nap time. (no crib, it's packed) And I sure wasn't going to refuse a short break from the monotony and boring tasks I've been doing! :)

We got this game as a gift a while ago and haven't gotten around to playing it till now! The girls decided this would be a good way to start summer vacation! So we put the boys to bed and started playing! Lainey won this round and both girls had a blast! Hooray for summer!
Today was the girls last day of school! Let summer officially begin! Lainey loved her pre-k teacher this year, Ms. Fritz, and we did too! She really helped Lainey excel this year! We are excited for summer, but it's always hard to say goodbye to your friends and teachers! We are so grateful for all that teachers do!

Thank you Granny and Grampy for the adorable bear and to everyone else who sent gifts and checked up on her! It's so nice to know you have the unconditional love and support of your family! We are truly blessed with the amazing family we have!
Poor Aleece has missed 6 1/2 days of school, but luckily it doesn't affect our little smartie pants! :) She still made the honor roll and got a cute little trophy! This week is the last week of school and she hopes to makes it back tomorrow and the last half day. She made it a half day today, but was exhausted at that point, so we checked her out.
We were lucky enough to have about a 3 year gap from the last time she was hospitalized and here's to hoping it will

The girls school had a sock hop last night. The kid's got to dance and run around and each of the grades also performed a dance routine they had been working on. The kids had an absolute blast as you can see from their smiles! And let me tell you Lennon has some pretty sweet dance moves! He was out there dancing the ENTIRE time! It was awesome!
Aleece had her 2nd grade field trip today and I was lucky enough to get to chaperone! We went and saw "Born to be Wild" at the Imax theater in Memphis. Such a cute film! We got to learn all about 2 different women's rescue efforts of orphaned elephants and orangutans. I think I heard every child say that they wanted one or the other (or both) of those animals as a pet as we excited the theater! They were pretty dang cute! So glad I get to participate in these fun activities with my sweet children. It's so fun to watch them interact with their friends!

People always say Aleece and I look alike (which we do), but I don't often hear that about Lainey and I. I never realized how much we look alike until I took this picture today. (I'd say poor girl, but I happen to think she is beautiful!) That smile melts me every time!

I got a phone call from Lainey's pre-k teacher today. She told me she had spoken with the principal about Lainey and they thought it would be a good idea for her to start spending some time each day with a kindergarten class. So for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours a day she gets to be an early kindergartner! Her teacher even won the teacher of the year award for our county last year. Don't you LOVE how excited Lainey is?! I sure love this girl!

We love this time of year, with all of the blossoming flowers, warmer weather and the opportunity we have to celebrate our Savior's sacrifice for all of us! We are so grateful for a loving Father in Heaven who loves us so much He sacrificed His son so that we can be eternal families! I remember my mom making hot cross buns for us when we were kids at Easter time and I thought it would be fun to do the same for my sweet kids! So here's a picture I snapped before we devoured them! I hope you all have a glorious and happy Easter!

To celebrate Dr. Suess's birthday this week the kids got to have a dress up week at school. There was crazy sock day, funny hat day, pajama day (the girls favorite!) And today they got to dress up as Dr. Suess characters! So we chose thing 1 and thing 2 from The Cat in the Hat. Aren't they the cutest thing 1 and thing 2 you've ever seen? I sure do love these girls!

Our sweet Leecy T once again got straight A's and was on the honor roll! She is so dang smart! She gets a different set of spelling words then the other kid's in her class to challenge her more and she is spelling words like vegetarian, principal, amphibians and civilization. Pretty impressive for a 7 year old! We are so proud of all her hard work!
