Our Little Graduate!

Can you believe...Porter has graduated from pre-K and is on his way to
Crowne Hill Elementary for kindergarten.
As always, Ms. Michelle and his class put on a great show for all the parents.
Porter did a great job performing. He did a great job reciting his line and singing
all the songs and doing the dances.

Performing: "You've Got a Friend In Me"

Porter hanging out with his buddies after graduation.

Ms. Michelle hands out awards for all the kids and gave Porter the "Leaps and Bounds Award".

She said that he is very well prepared for kindergarten and that he has come very far this last year in how he behaves in class. We are so proud of him and know that he will do great in kindergarten this next year. Thanks Ms. Michelle!!

Carter's Spring Sing

Carter had his preschool Spring Sing a couple weeks ago and although we thoroughly enjoyed it, I think Carter might have considered it some form of torture.

He started out with pretty good intentions I think. There was no way he would sing but he would do the hand motions for the songs...

...until he decided that it was a little too cold and didn't need to do the hand motions either.

When he went up there to say his line I thought for sure he would perform that well but decided to only say the last word of it which was blue (in reference to the red-white-and blue in the flag).

By this point he knows that this whole Spring Sing thing was a bad idea.

He manages to pose for one last picture with his class before he gets his award for the year that explains his behavior throughout the whole program.

Carter received the "Does everything he is asked to do as long as it doesn't involve singing" award.

Although Carter wasn't too willing to do the singing he was willing to dance as long as he had a girl there making him do everything. He really did a great job and I am so proud of him for learning and growing as much as he has this year in preschool.

Memorial Day 2009

I always tell myself that I am going to take a bunch of pictures at the family gatherings that we have at my parents house and for some reason I never get around to it. Abby really is so much better at this than I am, hence all of her cute posts of her little boys, but I really have good intentions and know that I should be getting a better handle on blogging
(mainly because Sam is so happy whenever I post something new).

Well for Memorial Day we started out with a quick visit from Grandma Sherri and a surprise guest, baby Memphis. The boys had so much fun with the baby and were so happy to see their grandma. After their short stay we headed over to my parents house for some major waterslide fun. I really wish I had taken pictures of the boys because they had such a blast out there with al their cousins ALL DAY LONG!!!!

Mom and Dad made a wonderful dinner with BBQ'd ribs and everyone thoroughly enjoyed them...including the little baby in my tummy that was doing all kinds of somersaults while I was chowing down. (Little baby--you definately love ribs!!!)
