Wrapping up 1st Grade

That's right folks! Dalton is officially a 2nd grader! It was a little touch and go there for a little bit, as we struggled with reading and attention span things, but he made it! And now, the kid is like a reading phenomenon (ok, slight exaggeration).

I thought I would include a few pics from their end of the year Luau party. These kids were truly a blast! I loved that Mrs Stanton had a little awards ceremony for the kids before the party! Dalton got the award for Most Positive Attitude, and was voted by his class most likely to be an astronaut! (Although, he felt jipped since he wants to be a police officer) I actually had to explain to him that he could still be a police officer even though his class voted someone else that spot. Poor thing, in his little mind I think he truly thought he was going to have to be an astronaut and that only the other little boy could be a police officer!

He's such a rule follower! I am blessed to have a child with such a big heart!

Thirty-How Many????????

That's right folks! 35! WOW! I remember when I used to think that 35 was REALLY OLD! Now, I don't think so at all! I am still pretty young at heart. Although, there are days that I do feel as though I am likely to fall apart at any moment! Mentally and Physically! LOL!

Anyway, the guys did it up right for me ofcourse! Homemade Red Velvet Cake with Chocolate Frosting (and sprinkles!) For Breakfast! Now, if you ask the boys they will tell you that Mommy's birthday is the only day they are allowed to eat cake for breakfast! And we all look forward to it every year! If you didn't know, I LOVE CAKE!!! Any kind of cake too-I am really not picky! If you will notice in the pictures, Jason was obviously trying to test our smoke alarms! Oh well, I did blow them all out-and it was delicious!

Did I mention the silly string attack in our living room? Yep-that was fun too!

Spring Coach Pitch

This spring Coach Pitch baseball was a blast! Dalton really liked playing catcher this year, and he seemed to pay a little more attention than in the past. He's already talking about fall ball, so I guess baseball really is our sport! Sorry these are just getting out, but like I said-I am a little behind!

The first picture is him getting the gameball, which is always exciting! But, if you think he looks a little rough, it's because he had a little scooter incident the day before! Oh well, boys will be boys I guess!

Brittany Spears I Am Not!

Ok, so apparently I have been away from posting a little longer than I had realized...Oops! So, I have decided that I am going to make one post a day for the next week to get caught up! And then I am going to try to commit to at least one post a week after that! Things have been really busy and crazy since school got out in May, and I will post all about it starting tomorrow!

Today, I am posting about FEAR. We were at a birthday day party at a park this afternoon, and on the other side of the park was a man with a snake. No, not a snake, a mammoth snake! Seriously this sucker was HUGE! Look at the pics and see what I mean! Well, I decided that I was going to trust in God's protection, and conquer a fear. It kinda helps that this thing seems to be tamed and housebroken! Note that I am still keeping my distance from the kind that are in the wild! And yes, I was freaking out and squealing the entire time! Note the laugh on the gentleman's face (the snake owner). But, now I can say I did it! By the way, that sucker is heavy and ways over 75 pounds! Oh, and yes in the last picture you can see where his/her tail was sneaking up and around my leg, which by the way also happened when everybody stepped away from me...What's up with that...don't leave me people! Within just a few short micro seconds, it was completely wrapped around my legs, and I was done!
