Memorial Day Weekend...

As always, we had the best time up at the cabin. My favorite part? No cell phone/Internet service! It was such a great break!
 
Taking a ride...
 On a little hike...









 Legos were a huge hit. I know what they're getting for Christmas!...



We have the best family and live in the most beautiful place! Can't wait to go back!

Preschool Graduation...

I think that Claire made some pretty great memories in preschool this year! Makes you wonder who she will stay close with in years to come.
 
Here she is with Madelyn King. She lives 2 doors down...
 
 Claire, Madelyn and Violet Breinholt. (her 2 best friends from the neighborhood). I love these girls so much!
 She's getting big!...
 This is how they REALLY are...
 Beginning of the ceremony...
 And here come the tears. Claire gets so scared and shy in big groups. Poor baby. Can you seen her in the middle there?...
 And here she is crying some more. She was the only one. I could hear her weeping...
 And crying some more...
 BUT... she was one of the few kids to read a book to everyone! And she nailed it with no tears at all!...
 The songs got her happy again...
 Getting ready to throw the cap...
 HOORAY!...
 If you could only see this girl light up when sees and/or talks about Danny...
 Chloe, Claire and Rian...
 Proud parents...

 Claire and Jackson Five. I have no idea why they call him that. She's got a few crushes!...
 Thanks for the great year, Miss Amee!
Now onto a great summer before Kindergarten!

Last Day of Preschool...

Well, preschool is over now and Claire is smarter and cuter than ever! I asked her what her favorite things about preschool were and she said, "Playing with Jackson Five (Jackson Sommer), playing with Legos with the boys (oh dear), playing in the kitchen and with the dolls." She also said that her favorite things to learn were the " coloring octupus', the calendar and the ABC's." Her best friends were: Chloe, Rian and Bostyn.

Here she is on her FIRST day of preschool...
 And here she is on her LAST day of preschool... (starting to get too cool for pictures)

 With her amazing teacher, Miss Amee...


What a little cutie! It's so fun to watch your kids grow up!
