Preschool Graduation

Chandler is ready for kindergarten! Last week, she had her preschool graduation program....it was bittersweet. While I am excited to see her moving to kindergarten, I am sad to see her leave the caring teachers & friends she has made at preschool.


The program was a re-enactment of the story of Noah's Ark. Chandler & her friend, Tanner, were the sheep.


This is Chance & Carter. They were the cutest lions ever!!


Tulip & Madison were beautiful angels.


Ms. Stollewerk's class


Mommy's sweet baby girl is not a baby anymore.....


Chandler & Madison will be friends forever. They will be going different ways next year, but we know they will be back together soon.


We LOVE Ms. Stollewerk!! She has had a huge influence on both of our children & prepared them for kindergarten in so many ways. We will be forever grateful for her love & kindness. Cheney & Chandler have been so lucky to be in Ms. Stollewerk's classroom in their preschool years.

Have you ever read the book "Pinkalicious?" It is a cute story about a girl whose favorite color is pink. She loves to make pink cupcakes but she eats so many that she turns pink & then she eats more & turns red!! After her parents take her to the doctor, she is told to eat green foods. Pinkalicious learns to like green foods so she can return to normal.

The children's theatre is doing the "Pinkalicious" musical this month. Chandler got invited to go see it with her friend, Madison. We had a great time!! Before the show, we went to a "Pinkalicious" tea party & ate pink cupcakes!! But thankfully, we didn't turn pink!!


What a cute cupcake!!


With a cherry on top!!


Chandler loved the show!! We had 2nd row seats.....she is ready to go back to the theatre!!

Cinco de Mayo

Cheney's school had a great opportunity recently. People from Ballet Folklorica came & taught his school some traditional Spanish dances for a Cinco de Mayo celebration. It was so cool to watch him perform & we found out he is a pretty good dancer.
