Back to school...already??!!

I bought a couple of workbooks for each of the kids and also made them each a binder of fun, summer learning.  I thought we'd begin our "school time" next week after we could truly give our brains a much needed rest.  Nope.  They begged to get started today...the first official day of summer break.  How could I say no?

Last Day of School....

Talin celebrated the last day of preschool with a breakfast picnic and fun. He received a new book and a certificate saying he is ready for Kindergarten! We can't believe how fast he has grown up but could not be more proud of his hard work this year.

Jaedin had a bittersweet last day of 1st grade.  She is very ready for 2nd grade but will miss her teacher, friends and going to PES (where mommy works part of the time).  Next year, she will go to Lecompton Elementary School with all the 2nd-4th graders.  This will be a great change for her once she gets use to the new routine.  She also recognized at an assembly for being 1st place in the Accelerated Reader program for her class.  Way to go, Jae!

T-Ball Sluggers!

We were so excited when Perry decided to have t-ball teams this year.  Both Talin & Remingtin signed up to play and LOVE IT!  We had our first game, a double-header, and it was a hoot!  If you ever need a Saturday morning carefree-laugh, come over & watch!

Hoops For Heart 2011

As most of you know, our sweet Jaedin was born with 2 holes in her heart...so obviously the American Heart Association is very near and dear to our hearts.  Every year, when the Hoops For Heart fundraiser begins at school, we celebrate and try to raise as much money as we can.  This year PES doubled their donations and raised over $3000!  The PE teacher even let the 2 top money raisers throw a pie in his face at an assembly.  Wow, did all the kids think that was neat!  :) 

Morning of Hoops For Heart at school...

THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to this excellent cause.
