Many of you know that MeMe & Pop have alpacas. The other day, Cheney & Chandler got to go with MeMe & Pop to get them sheared. I think I have a few country kids on my hands.
Cheney loves Toby & Rocket!!

This weekend Cheney ran in his 1st 5K. It was a family event so he joined me & Billy. We really enjoy running & I am glad that Cheney has joined us. For most of the race, Cheney & Daddy were about a 1/4 mile ahead of me. But around the last mile, they slowed down so that I could catch up with them. We crossed the finish line together. Cheney had a time of 27:20. I had a time of 27:21 & Daddy had a time of 27:22.
Daddy & Cheney before the race. I am so glad that our family enjoys doing activities together.

Last weekend, we got to spend some time with one of our favorite people. We hadn't seen Uncle Jeff for over 2 years. However, he flew in for Mommy's graduation. The kids had a fabulous time hanging out with him.
Chandler loved getting attention from Uncle Jeff.
Cheney is already planning his trip to see Uncle Jeff (by himself!). We can't wait to see him again, but next time, he MUST bring Aunt Kerry!!

Several people know that I have been working on getting my Master's degree. It has been an 18 month process & I am so glad to be done. This weekend was graduation. It was so amazing to share this event with my children & spouse. When they recognized the families for their support, it was so cool to see my children proudly stand to be honored.
After the ceremony, we ate dinner at Pappadeux. My brother was able to come share the day with me too.

Last night was Chandler's end of the year preschool program. Each year the group acts out a story. When Cheney was in preschool, I know they did Noah's Ark one year, but I don't remember the other year. Anyway, this year, they did "The Very Hungry Caterpillar." Chandler was the cupcake.....and I think she was the BEST CUPCAKE EVER!!
I am so proud of her. There was a time when I am not sure she would have done this, but she has grown up so much this year.
Chandler LOVES Mrs. Emard & her friend, Kadence. I think it is funny because the other name that I had picked out for Chandler was Cadence. I guess it is good I decided on Chandler--God knew they would be friends one day!!
Chandler and her friend, Weston. Weston's mom & I went to high school together. Apparently, Weston notices that Chandler wears pretty dresses to school each day....Uh oh, Keagan, you have competition!!
Chandler has started wearing dresses EVERY DAY to school....no shorts or pants....only dresses!! I guess if this continues, I will appreciate this, but right now, it makes for an interesting morning because I pick out shorts & she refuses to wear them.

Chandler recently went to a birthday party at the local gymnastics center. Guess who found out they want to take gymnastics?? She loved every minute of it. I gess we will be starting after the summer.
Playing on the bars!!
Getting ready for the rope swing. Unfortunately, she is like her Momma & has very little upper body strength so she fell right away.

Did anybody notice I left someone out of my Mother's Day post?
I did it on purpose. You see, my Grandma was saying we never celebrate grandparents day & she thinks we should. She is probably right because she is the most amazing person I know & she deserves to be celebrated!!
I know that my Grandma will do anything she can for my family. Her dedication to her family & her faith are envious!!
GRANDMA-I celebrate you today!! I love you & I am so thankful that God gave you to me!!

This week was M week at preschool. During M week, Moms get to come have a snack with their little one. I wouldn't miss this for anything.
As I was helping Chandler get dressed for the day, she told me "Mom, make sure you wear a cute dress." It probably won't be the last time I will get directions about how to dress or act!! Chandler did a fabulous job of introducing me. This is really hard for her because she tends to be shy. It made me get a little teary to hear her sweet little voice introduce her mommy!! I love you sweet girl!!

Pop's family included 6 children. These 6 children had 14 grandchildren. Over the past several years, the grandkids have realized that they were only seeing each other @ weddings & funerals. We decided that was not good so after a year of going back & forth....the 1st Annual Weir Cousin Reunion was held!! We were all a little nervous, but very excited. It turned out fabulous & plans are being made for the next one.
Chandler & Ethan (my cousin Dan's son) became fast friends. They are the two youngest GREAT grandkids. I think Pop (or Granddaddy) would have thought these two were adorable. I wish they could have met him!! Ethan only lives a few miles down the road so we plan to see him more often.
10 of the 14 cousins....do you see any resemblances?
