This year was amazing for Seth...he had an extraordinary teacher. She is funny, kind and pushed Seth in so many ways. I so appreciate her and totally gave me complete confidence in the public school system and the teachers. I just pray that next year will be just a much a blessing as this year has been!

Grant's last week of school was the week of May 13. He had his program on Tuesday May 14. He sang songs, including "This Little Light of Mine" He did really well, and sang all the songs and did most of the motions.
Yeah for the last day of preschool!

The cutest thing...Grant is very sensitive because Seth is always getting ribbons and trophies for his quizzing. We hear often: "I didn't get a ribbon" "I don't have a trophy" "Seth is good at everything and I"m good at nothing" It breaks my heart. Well...he got his ribbon yesterday...it may say descendant and 100th anniversary Monument....but to a 3 year old...that's okay...cause he now has a ribbon hanging on HIS bulletin board. He held on that pretty tight!

In fact...all 5 quizzers from Grace Point got double perfects..and were part of the winning district. And... now...it's on to world in June!
We stopped for lunch...had some awesome pie and had a much quicker drive home...avoiding all signs of traffic. We are so proud of Seth and his accomplishments this year...in 6 quizzes he has only missed 1 question...pretty darn good I must say...cause even after I ask him the questions over and over, I still can't remember all the correct answers.
It was a nice little trip with our 1st born..he was so cute..just sitting in the back row of the van...playing his DS and reading....I think he read 3 books on the trip. Golly I love that kid!

They are best buds...whether in the backyard...at childwatch at the Y or at the zoo!

It was Saturday, April 20 and the boys were at the Tin Caps game for school night. I was at our church resale. I got a text and a friend we know via Kate's Kart offered us 4 free tickets to the Tin Caps game on Sunday...AND a chance for one of the boys to throw out the first pitch. How could we refuse that.
So..after a few phone calls...all the grandparents were coming and we had 8 tickets. We arrived on Sunday afternoon and Seth and Andy went down to the field. Right before the game...3 kids got to throw a pitch. 1st a b-day boy, then a player from some b-ball team...and then they announced Seth's name as being with The Garrison Group, the charity of the day (that was who invited us, and just happens to be the group that does the 5K for Kate's Kart).
It went fast...but I'm sure for an 8 year old, it was a great experience. Grant seemed oblivious to the whole thing, until Seth came back with the b-ball he threw. So...a quick trip to the gift shop and some Cotton candy and he was good to go!
Due to some other church choir commitments of Seth that night...we had to leave the game early. It was actually a nice afternoon for a game.
Again...another awesome opportunity...that lucky kid!

We stuck around the house for Spring Break this year...after kicking the weekend off with Easter....
Monday: The boys were at Grandma and Grandpa Ted's...so Andy went out to work and I spent the day at the storage unit. I think we were both glad to get some work done. After a "date supper" we headed to Decatur to pick up the boys
Tuesday: Worked around the house...grocery shopping...library...movie night...dealing with broken van
Wednesday: Went bowling...still dealing with broken van
Thursday: Dealing with broken van...packed and were on our way to Bluffton when we got a phone call from a friend's brother, a car dealer, who had a van for us. He was leaving the next day...so...we headed back with 2 very upset boys..but came home 6 hours later with a NEW VAN! Woo hoo! The old van was falling apart...chugged gasoline and just didn't feel safe. Happy to be a 2010 Chrysler Town and Country
Friday: Loaded up again and headed back to Bluffton, this time making it all the way. We explored the buffaloes
