Must be the month to GRADUATE!!!

What an exciting month this has been... we have been able to celebrate not one, but TWO graduations!!!

My handsome Kevin graduated from Utah State with a Masters of Accountancy degree on May 7. It definitely hasn't been easy to get to this point (and he still actually has two more classes to take this summer), but I know in the end it will be well worth it. I cannot express in words how excited I am at the thought of being done with school!!! We have been doing the school thing since we got married. We both have a Bachelor's degree, and now a Master's to top it off. How truly blessed we have been on this journey!!!

I am so proud of Kevin!

On May 28 Andrew graduated from preschool. I am so proud of my boy and all that he has learned this year. Finding this preschool was an answer to prayer, and has been so so good for him in so many ways. His teacher, Miss Suzanne, has been remarkable. She has always been patient with helping and teaching Andrew. Because of this he has come to not only love school, and love his teacher... but he has also come out of his shell a little bit. The most important things I feel he has learned from this experience are: how to behave at school, be polite, be creative, make new friends, try new things, to be more patient, use his imagination more, express himself more clearly (what he is feeling, ect.), and to have more confidence in himself. There are countless other things he has learned as well. I am so grateful he has been able to have this experience, and we are looking forward to Kindergarten in the fall!!! Andrew is especially excited. We have been telling him that when he is five he will go to Kindergarten. So he is determined in thinking that he will start on July 7, the day after his fifth birthday. :) Andrew absolute loves to learn, and we can only hope that this continues!!!

Feast your eyes on one of Andrew's favorite pastimes. (That is when the sun decides to come out and visit for a minute or two anyway)...
