Saturday downtown in the Spa City

We went downtown on Saturday morning for a walk, filled up some water jugs and went to the national geographic national park exhibit in an old bath house. We also showed the kids where we got married and tried to recreate a pic by the big rock :)  Then they saw the old timey photo place so we played dress up and got a western pic. So random, so weird, so hot springs!

She's 5!!!!

After the recital blakely came home with us for a much anticipated first sleepover. These two are big buddies at school and really enjoy playing together, especially with baby dolls. We had cake and ice cream and presents at a little family party Sunday night. I love this girl with all my heart and I'm so excited to see what year 5 brings for her.

Blakely's birthday is the next day and so they got a little birthday pampering at the nail salon. They would just look at each other and smile but were very quiet. Nora said, this is so much fun.

Then we had chick fil a, a freezing swimming lesson and ended with a tee ball game. Nora's team sang to her at the end of the game huddle which she loved!!

Tiny dancer

Nora performed ballet in her dance recital last night and did incredibly well. She was front and center and nailed every move. So much fun to watch her shine on stage!

Reading to DF's class

This is from a FB post from Mrs. Davenport's class page. We had so much fun and brought ice cream sandwich treats. Each student sent homemade thank you cards to us yesterday. Precious!!

Ram basketball camp

David F attended Ram basketball camp after school three days this week. He loved it but I have to remember this.... The first day when I picked him up he said "mom, you didn't send me any money for the confession stand!" I will always call it that I believe. What a spiritual boy. He did great and he and Avery McBride both got the same award, the "teammate award" for encouraging and picking up the other players. So proud of him!! He was thrilled.

This is Coach White and he coached Jason and David. (More Jason). DF thought that was pretty cool! 

Nora graduates from Pre-K

Nora had her last chapel and received her certificate of completion of preschool. She's ready for the real deal now...kindergarten here she comes!!

Book club at the Farm

Nora hosted book club and ended our Kevin Henkes author study at the farm. A few girls couldn't make the drive but those who did had a great time. Wide open spaces to explore and squeals and giggles galore.  Thanks to the super talented, Shannon LaDuke aka Ruthie's mommy for taking these great pics of a great afternoon!
