Friday was the end of G's school year. It was bittersweet. I have to admitt that I cried. His teacher made a scrapbook of pictures for them to keep as a memory of 3yr old preschool He is getting so big. He no longer looks like a toddler or preschooler, but a "real" boy. He has grown up so much this year. They had a program on Friday. Each child had a part in a song. G's role was the wind in the song "Five Little Kites" Enjoy the video. The picture below is what M did during the whole program.
G's preschool class celebrated all summer birthday's this past Wed. So G got to be the leader, hold the flag in chapel and bring in a treat for his classmates. He brought doughnuts with sprinkles for all his friends. He was so excited to be the leader and be on stage. We are having his birthday party on May 30th at our house. He wanted a pirate theme, so that's what we are going to do complete with a treasure hunt.

We had a very busy weekend. This weekend started the birthday season for us. Most of Grant's friends have birthdays May-August. Saturday we had two parties to go to. The first one was for a little girl and she had a My Little Pony theme. Grant got to ride a real pony at this party. Then we had a Thomas the Train party that afternoon. This party had a blow up water slide which the kids loved. Yesterday, Dan took Grant to the air show at Barksdale AFB. Grant loved every minute of it. He came home so excited and shared all he had seen.
Friday night we had a date night for all the MOP moms and dads. We had a Luau Theme. We played Limbo, Hula Hoop contest, and the Newlywed game. We had a blast. Kristy won Limbo, Ben won the Hula Hoop contest and the Carothers won the Newlywed game.I highly recomend anyway who has a child birth to kindergarten to join MOPS. I'm on the steering team of our MOPS group and its such a encouraging and renewing time knowing their are other moms going through the samething I am. If you live in the Shreveport area and want to join MOPS shoot me an e-mail.

Dan surprised me with a 4 day trip to Belize for my birthday. For those who don't know my parents were missionaries to Belize during my middle and high school years. Dan flew my mom in to watch the boys. We had lots of fun. We basically relaxed on the beach. We tried to sleep in, but with sun pouring in our windows, we were awake by 6:00am!!!!!
It's been awhile since I've updated. We've been pretty busy lately with soccer, surprise party for Lauren, my 30th birthday, trip to Belize, sickness, MOPS, end of the year, etc.. So in order to catch up I'll be posting different slide shows. Hopefully I'll be better at blogging.
