Happy 3rd Birthday Hattie!

Today she had her 3 year dr. appointment and she weighed 29.4 lbs (37th%), was 37.25 inches tall (57%) and was just adorable as usual. She did her first vision test and was able to point to the shapes she saw.

 It can be very difficult to get her to smile!  This is what I get!

 Ready to open presents on her big day!
 Beautiful blue eyes

Last Day of 1st Grade

The day was cool and the boys were excited! It's a "Big Deal to be a 2nd grader" Chase told me a few nights ago.  It's always bittersweet to see the end of the year come, especially when the teachers have been great and Chase and Owen love school.
 The beautiful sun coming through the clouds made for some bright pictures!
 It's chilly out!

I tried to get the Cologne Academy on the side, which I guess I did!

1st graders

Oh how sad I am that my cute little first graders are almost done with their amazing year. They truly have had the best teachers who have not only taught them, but have loved them and given them confidence and helped them excel as people.

It's exciting and tough, at the same time, to see my kids grow up.  On one hand they are more independent and smarter and easier.  On the other hand, they have bigger troubles, are harder to pick up and move when they need to be taken to their rooms and I just don't want to see them grow up and leave us!  (at this point at least. :)

First grade has been amazing and the boys have had the best teachers-Mrs. Peterson was Chase's teacher and Miss Carlson was Owen's teacher.  They loved their teachers and their teachers loved them!  Chase and Owen gave them hugs at the bus each day before saying goodbye. They held the boys to high standards and helped them grow so much!

Family Night at Church

River Valley had an amazing family night a few weeks ago and we had a blast! The boys could have stayed at the photo booth the entire night!  We went to different stations and danced and sang, prayed for our family and the world, make Lego prayer walls and just had fun!

Fun Hair with Nana and Papa

My parents came and watched the kids back in March while Jeff and I had to work.  Hattie got her hair done extra special one day!
