Wacky Wednesday

School's almost over and I don't know who is more thrilled...the kids or ME! I'll be so glad to sit back & enjoy my children without having to cart them around everywhere!! Here are a few pics from Ben's Field Day at school yesterday.
We are so proud of Ben!
We was nominated by his classroom teacher as a "Terrific Kid" by the Kiwanis Club. His teacher says he's a model student and he's good to his friends. We couldn't be prouder of our Ben!

Becoming Neil Armstrong

Ben got to choose who he wanted to read about & dress as for his Biography Book Report. He chose Neil Armstrong. Well, after searching online for ideas for HOME-MADE costumes, this is the best we could come up with...a white shirt & his baseball pants for the "jumpsuit" and a paper mache' helmet, spray painted silver. I think it was hard for him to envision the end result, but - as you can see - he was thilled and had no problem acting the part.


Jake & Ally's MDO program & preschool graduation

CANNOT believe we have ANOTHER Preschool Grad on his way to Kindergarten. Way to go, Jake! He was SUPER-proud for all of us to be there. Nannie & Papa (my parents) and Grammy & Pop (Cory's parents) were there too! Ally also sang "5 Little Monkeys" & "Pat the Bible" with her class. She, of course, was the star of the show ;) SUMMER'S ALMOST HERE!!!

35 and JOYfully Blessed!

Ok - so my birthday was 2 days ago...but here ya go...
I'd say nothing wakes you up more than hearing your parents sing "Happy Birthday" to you on your 35th Birthday like you're still their little girl. I guess I'm just lucky :) Anyway, since it's my Birthday, thought I'd share these 25 random things about myself that I posted a while ago on Facebook...enJOY!
