Gabey’s last day of Joy school

My little Gabers is moving on. He had his last day of  joy school on Thursday. These four little boys are all so precious and I’m so glad Gabe had the chance to become friends with them. This year was so fun for him, and for me. I loved having my turn with the little monsters. I’m not sure how much Gabe learned, but he made some great friendships, and had lots of fun.

Gabers got a haircut

san antonio and midland 109 He looks so freakin cute. I love to rub his little head. Apparently Gabe had a major freak out when Donny started doing it, but when they were all done he changed his tune. He seems pretty proud of it. I always miss his curls, but i’m sure they’ll grow back.  I think Gabe makes Izzy nervous. She looks kinda nervous in that last picture.  We wanted to get a few of them together since they’re sporting the same hair style now.

San Antonio and Midland

We  took at little trip to San Antonio on our way to Midland a couple weeks ago.We hit up Sea World, the river walk, a river boat cruise, and that pretty much sums it up. I love San Antonio. I would totally live there. There is so much history and so much to do. I should mention that on our little boat ride we saw the Alamo, but didn’t actually take a tour. Maybe next time, with no kiddies. Then… we drove on to Midland. My sister graduated from nursing school last week. I am so unbelievably proud of her!! It was wonderful to be there for her pinning and graduation. There are so many pictures. We had a blast. Donny had to fly home early so he wasn’t able to be there for the festivities. My brother Jacob drove the  9 hour trip home from Midland with me. He was such a trooper. I was really nervous about driving without Donny, but it was great to have Jakey there. Thanks buddy. Couldn’t have done it without you.

Gabers outdoor adventures and our frog

life pics 064 I don’t know where his fierce nature comes from. Doesn’t he look scary, that’s what he’s going for. Gabey loves to play in his little play house.

Mother’s Day Tea Party

The week of Mother’s Day I had the pleasure of attending a tea party at Sophi’s preschool. When I arrived I went into her classroom and was then escorted, by my sweet little angel, to my seat. The table was set with beautiful little decorations made by the kids. After we were all seated, the kids brought us our gifts. Then, we were served chocolate covered strawberries, cookies, and lemonade, while our wee ones sat on our laps and enjoyed the treats with us. I love my sweet Sophi. She was so excited about the party. I feel so blessed to have such a beautiful daughter, inside and out. This was her last year at Kids of the Kingdom. I can’t believe she will be going to kindergarten in September. She’s my baby. What will I do without her all day? She is such a helper to me. So obedient and so nurturing to her little sister and brother. This year at her little parent teacher conference her teacher told me what a joy she is. They said, “such an angel, so wonderful”. Music to my ears. It was wonderful to hear how well she has done in school also. She’s doing everything she should be doing, socially, physically, and academically. Love her.

Too bad you are almost always makin a goofy face when you’re in a picture by yourself. Sarah came to stay with us in March and she just went back home last week. We met my parents in Midland and she went back home with them. Her visit was filled with … adventure. My kiddies are forever bonded with their sweet Aunty. Love you, miss you

Sophi rockin out

Sophi loved to listen to her Aunt Sarah’s ipod while she was staying with us. Sarah always sat outside to work on her homework and her tan, of course. Sophi especially loved to sit outside with her Aunty.
