{school's out!!....}

Last Friday Andrew graduated from KINDERGARTEN!!

This is something he has been looking forward too, and is already talking about first grade. He has loved kindergarten, and since we moved part way through the year he had two different teachers, and both were great. His teacher here in Tooele, Mrs. Stowe, was especially top notch as she helped Andrew adjust to a new school, a different teaching style, making new friends.... ect. She went out of her way on more than one occasion to work with him, and we appreciate her so much. Andrew has loved Middle Canyon Elementary, and thinks it is the coolest school around. :)

{let's take a pic or two...}

A few weeks ago I finally got around to taking some 3 year pictures of Carrie. This girl is not an easy one to capture on camera, she doesn't know how to hold still to save her life. And she is such a ham. I have way too many shots with her like this:
Typical Carrie with her tongue out. She loves sticking out her tongue... a lot.

Luckily I did get some without her sticking out her tongue that I liked. 
Here is a sampling.

My beautiful girl... 
you see the little freckles on her nose?!? ADORABLE if you ask me.

Showing off her daisy...

Her biggest cheesiest smile!

Showing how old she is.... THREE!! She is such a character.
I cannot tell you how much I love my Care Bear!!

{lights out...}

It doesn't matter what I am doing... my kids are constantly checking up on me, chatting with me, and playing near me. On this particular day Carrie had some toys and was playing by me. I was working, and didn't notice her leave. After several minutes I realized she had gone, and couldn't hear her, so decided I had better go check on her and see what she was up too. I went first to the toy room, since that is where she will usually be, but she wasn't there. Across the hallway I caught a glimpse of her in her room. She had gone into her room, closed the blinds, turned on her the night light, turned on the ceiling fan, and snuggled herself up in bed and had fallen sound asleep. I guess she needed a nap!! That has never happened... (and in all honesty will probably never happen again). She is just too darn cute!

{a little bit of dirty work...}

We are so excited about the opportunity we have to be home owners. There are so many things that are still new to us, and that we are getting used too. Yard work is probably at the top of the list!! We are excited to be able to have a garden, and are hoping for the best with it. It has been a fun family project. :)

{the park = FUN!!!}

The sun was out, and so were we. These were actually taken at an activity put on by DDI vantage where Carrie is enrolled. She loves it there, and it has been the best thing for her. She is talking more, (we had her tested and she was low on her speech), and she is becoming a little bit less shy. YAY!! It is alway a good feeling to see your kids improve. We had a great time at the Spring Fling they put on for the kids!!
