Last Day of Kindergarten

Emma was actually REALLY sick the last week of kindergarten. She had a stomach bug like I've never seen. She missed every day the last week and that made me sad. But not nearly as sad as I was that she was so sick. Somehow none of us got it but I would have gladly taken it from her if I could have. So we took these pictures the weekend after the last week of school.

I can't believe how much she's grown and changed. She truly amazes me every day with all that she has learned. We are so proud of her!!

Emma's Recital

2 weekends ago we had Emma's 3rd recital. She did such a good job and we were so proud of her! Since it was her 3rd year dancing she got a trophy at the end and got to say her name on stage. Here are some pictures from her day.

Getting ready to go! We curled her hair and it didn't last at all!

Me and my sweet girl!

Off to the dentist we go...

We had our 6 month cleaning a couple of weeks ago. It was just me with the kids and they did great while I had my teeth cleaned. After they did mine, it was Emma's turn. She did a great job!! They always love going to the dentist because of the bag of goodies they get when we leave (a new toothbrush and floss).

Emma before school looking absolutely precious!

All ready for them to start!

Even trying to smile while she's getting her teeth cleaned!

Lunch with Emma Bean

A couple of weeks ago me and Brooks went to eat lunch with Emma. He was SO EXCITED because he got to go. He'd been once before but it was towards the beginning of the year. Every other time I had gone to eat with her he had been at school. I was off this day so I just kept him at home with me so he could go. As soon as we dropped her off that morning he wanted to know if it was lunch time. When I told him it wasn't, he wanted to know how long till lunch time. He then proceeded to ask me this about every 30 minutes to an hour until it was time to leave. It was absolutely precious.

Here is Emma before school that morning!

After all that excitement he was in no mood for a picture.
He was too busy acting like a big kid, eating and checking everything out.

Fun at the park...

A few weeks ago I took the kids to the park one night after dinner. We had been to this park before but they were too little to remember. I honestly forget about it, but we'll definitely have to go again soon. They had so much fun!

I think I had just as much fun as they did! I love them both so much!

Emma's 1st Fun Run

2 weeks ago was Emma's first fun run. They were raising money to put the soft padding down on their playground. She was so excited about it all. They wanted them to run between 25-35 laps if they could. Emma ran 40 laps!! We were so PROUD of her! Me and Brooks went to cheer her on and he had a blast!! Here are some pictures from the day.

We got to ride the bus from the parking lot to the school and Brooks loved it!

Playing on one of the playgrounds waiting on Emma to come out!

He was having too much fun!

Emma's class picture
Later that night we went to watch Bailey Ann play softball. Emma and Brooks had actually not been to the ball park before and they LOVED it. They were filty from head to toe and had a blast and ask everyday when we are going back! Brooks wasn't in the mood to stop for pictures but I did get this picture of Emma and Bailey. They adore each other!
