AAAAHHHHHH!!! I'm so not computer savvy. I have been trying for the last hour to build a seating chart for our primary program and I cannot figure out how to get the chart the way that it is in my head onto the computer screen. SHoot me now and put me out of my misery!

New way to bond

This is what happens when Justin takes the kids out for an evening with Dad. They come home with a new something. This time it was a gum ball machine for Madisen's room and a R/C car for Tanner. After putting the car together and charging the battery out we all went to drive it. Justin loved driving this thing so much the next day he came home with one for himself. After charging his and Tanner's batteries out we went again to drive/race them. Both the boys were having so much fun that giving Madisen a turn was very hard for them. SOOO the next day in walks Justin from work carrying, you guessed it, a car for Madisen. They love them!!! Madisen is the most cautious so she wins most of the races though by default, because the boys flip their cars in the middle of the race giving her a chance to pass them and win. It is so fun to watch them all play together.
Setting up for a race.
This is the first day they came home with Tanner's car. As you can see Justin is hogging the remote which is why he need the kids to have their own cars.
Oh yes, this is what I do while they play...take pictures.

Kindergarten Graduation

We survived! It was touch an go some days but after going to school all day long, five days a week,switching to half day kindergarten was a big adjustment for both myself and Madisen. Her program was so cute. They sang songs about the ABC's, money and friends and ended with Proud to be an American. She got up the morning of the program and said to me, "I might get a little emotional today. You know when we sing that song about the soldier's. Because they really did die for us. And it's a rally big day today. And I cried when we practiced." So I waited an watched to see what would happen. She had been practicing all week and was ready to go on stage. She smiled and sang her little heart out and made it through the soldier's song just fine. When I asked her if she made it through without getting "emotional" she responded, "Of course I was I stage so I held it together."
Below is a picture of Madisen on the last day of school after a trip to the dentist. She officially chews like a cow because the poor girl has no teeth!

Totally worth it!

You know how it goes. You get your kids all dressed up and do their hair for school pictures. Pay the twenty some odd dollars and end up with your kid cross eyed, or sneezing, right? Well this one is worth every penny. If, only it was the yearbook picture!!!
