First Grade Program~

Alex had his first grade program in May.  It was so cute.  The kids all wore their Sunday best and sang about 25 songs.  They did actions and danced.  Grandpa came with me to the program.  We were laughing cause we thought the program was long with 19 songs then we turned the program over and saw a few more.  We got the giggles.  Alex was so cute and animated.  He kept waving at me and blowing kisses to me.  I have cherished how sweet he is.  I love that he is still not too cool to show how much he loves me.  After the program, Grandpa took all of us and we went and got ice-cream. 

~Girls weekend~

So, me and the ladies (mom, Cathy, Cindy, & Courtney) got crazy and went to Provo for the weekend.   I know it sounds riveting, but we had a great time.  We went to dinner at Texas Road house and saw the show "What to expect when your expecting".  We shopped and went to the pool.  But most of all, we stayed up half the night in our jammies and laughed til we cried and then cried til we laughed.  I am so thankful for my sisters and mom.  They build me up and make me laugh.  They love me unconditionally.  They make me spunky and crazy.  They are the reason I am who I am. There isn't a day that I don't thank God for them....  I should have taken more pictures, but this is all I got!

Pre-school ~

This picture was taken before the fieldtrip to the zoo.  (L to R)  There is Shaun, Jessica, Melissa and Kaden)  He loves these big helpers!

Each senior got to talk about their little kid.  Here is Kaden and Melissa.

Zach got kind of shy.  I thought this was so sweet when he leaned on Kaden and Kaden gently re-assured him.  Like I said, this was a special group of seniors...

Zach and his buddy, Afton.  They have a love/hate relationship. 

The fabulous Ms. Erickson!

Zach and all of his big helpers!
Zach was lucky enough to go to Skyline pre-school this year!  The class was smaller so on any given day he had 2-4 big helpers.  They read stories and played games.  They sang songs and danced.  They even rode a bus to the zoo for their field trip.  Zach had a very special group of seniors this year who LOVED him and he LOVED them.  One of his big helpers, Kaden, got all choked up when he was talking about Zach at graduation.  It was so so sweet.  I just sat their and cried.  Zach had a crush on his big helper, Jessica, he always told me how beautiful she was.  She is the blonde one holding him.  His actual teacher was Ms. Erickson.  This was her last year to teach pre-school.  Which makes me so sad. He also loved Melissa and Shaun.  I am so thankful that he had the opportunity to go to preschool this year!!

Sami's first 5K....

I am sure that the month of May is way busier than December.  I would love to write up a little blurb about all the fun things that happened in May, but I am already behind so I think I will do a quick version. 

                                             Girls on the Run, 5K!

Megan, one of our running buddies and Sami and I at the end of the race!

I look like I am in a parade and doing a "royalty wave".  Sami looks like she is about to have a stroke, but she did great.  This was just a funny shot!

Wahoo, all done.  I am so proud of her...

Sami did a program through the school called "Girls on the Run."  After school two days a week they trained for a 5K.  Also, they talked about their bodies and eating healthy and being happy with who they are.  It was a fabulous program.  At the end of the program, we ran a 5K together.  It was at Sugarhouse park.  It was a really fun event.  There was music and booths and lots of people cheering us on.  Sami didn't walk at all and I think she loved her first 5K.  It was a great thing for her and I to do together....
