Pretty Princess

Kylene got to attend a Princess Birthday party a few weeks ago.  She makes such a lovely princess.

First Day of School!

 Connor started 1st grade at Washington Woods Elementary.  His teacher is Mrs. Dammier and she is fabulous!  Connor come in the door after school every day and either says, "Today was a great day!" or "This was a fun day!".  He loves riding the bus and is becoming a great little reader.  He's a tall, lean machine and seems to be enjoying all things related to being 6 going on 7!
Kylene started Preschool on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at Christ United Methodist.  She loves this experience and happily trots off each day.  Her two teachers are Mrs. Veech and Mrs. Mroch and they exude sweetness.  She has an awesome new Hello Kitty backpack that she is very proud of!


5 mths

My sister photographed this sweet little face while his was trying out his new Johnny Jumper.  At 5 mths Caleb is such a JOY!  He smiles and laughs and chews on everything in sight!  He looks at us with the most loving eyes.  We all swarm him whenever he's awake.  He's an official thumb sucker (his left thumb) and cries right up until he's laid in his crib.  He finds that thumb, his eyes roll back and those lids flutter closed.  Melts my heart every time.


Pool Time

 My sister Ashley was visiting with her kids last week and captured all this fun at the pool!
Connor does a mean cannon baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaall!

 Kylene and Zach were hilarious jumping off the side of the pool holding hands.  Their belly laughs each time were the best!


Utah Wedding

We got to attend our beautiful Aunt Codi's wedding in Salt Lake City and then made a trip to Provo and Orem for a few days of reminiscing and fun. (More pics to follow.)

Out sweet sweet sleeping baby.
 Connor had a wonderful Kindergarten year at Carmel Elementary!  The year ended with a bang; we attended the "Kindergarten Visits the Zoo" music night where the children all came dressed up as an animal (Connor was of course a dinosaur) and sang a song about an animal for each letter of the alphabet.  I was amazed they all knew so many songs with the actions! 
 The four of us got to attend the Kindy 500 race where we watched each student race in heats wearing a cardboard car they had made with their parents.
 We were all proud of the cool car Byron and Connor made and happy for Connor that he "won" his heat. (There were no official winners, but all the kids were keeping track of who won each heat.  (It's important stuff!)

 This picture says, "I'm am super happy that I won and excited you are here to see it, but trying to play it cool."
