Micah went to the Dentist for the very first time back in June. Grant's been a couple of times, but has never allowed them to take his x-rays. He would always gag. This time I bribed him with money. I told him I would give him $5 if he would like them take pictures of his teeth. Well, that did the tricked. The hygenist came out and said he was almost in tears, but was brave and stayed still long enough for them to snap a pic! I was so proud of him! The x-rays should he had no cavities and that his teeth are perfect. He still hasn't lost any teeth (he's very anxious too, since all his friends have lost teeth).
Micah had a hard time that day. It took him forever for him to let Dr. Cook look in his mouth. We found out the next day why. He ended up being sick and was sick off and on for 3 weeks. Hopefully, next time he'll enjoy it more.
The boys went roller skating for the first time back in June. They were invited to Marlee's 6th birthday party. Micah took right too it. Grant on the other hand had a hard time skating. He was nervous and scared. I don't think Micah knew to be scared he went right out there and started moving. That boy is fearless. Grant is like me and more cautious about things.
I know I'm 2 months late posting this, but I've been a little busy. First, our computer crashed. Then with being in my last trimester I had no energy to do anything extra on the computer. So we celebrated G's 6th birthday at Kid City. Love that Place! We invited mostly church friends, neighbors, and a couple of friends from school. G had a great time playing all the video games and messing around on the indoor playground. He loves American Presidents so his request was for an American birthday party. He wanted a Mount Rushmore cake. Talk about being difficult to find someone to make that cake! Nobody could do it. So I finally had to take a picture to Walmart and have them scan it on to a cake. I was very disappointed in how it turned out, but G liked it. That's all that matters in the end. He's already been telling me what kind of party he wants next year!

A couple of weeks ago, M was invited to his friend Brook's 2nd birthday party. It was pirate themed, so of course I made sure his outfit matched the occasion. The party was at Brook's house. His mom, Kristen, knows how to throw a party. Her parties are always a lot of. The kids had a geat time playing, eating all the cookies, and making crafts. A couple of our little friends couldn't make it due to sickness and being out of town.

My parents came into town last Friday. They wanted to get Grant a little something for finishing Kindergarten. He decided he wanted a fish. We headed to PetSmart to pick one out. He had a goldfish before from Walmart, but it quickly died. So we thought the fish from Petsmart might be in better health. He picked out a bluish color beta fish. The easiest type of fish to take care. Mamaw and Papaw bought him a tank and supplies. Grant decided to name him Freddie. I have no idea where that name came from.
Our friends the Cole's were in town from Mobile last week. Philip and Grant are about 7 weeks apart. They were in the nursery as babies, played all the time as toddlers, and started preschool together. They moved about 3 years ago so that Philip's dad could finish his residence. We miss them so much! The neat thing about their friendship is that we can months without talking to them, but when we meet up its like no time has passed.
Kim and the boys came over for a playdate. We were able to play outside before a huge storm hit. Micah and Andrew got along great. They haven't been around each other much since Andrew was just a baby when they moved and I was pregnant with Micah. The boys all had a great time spending time with each other. Lauren and the girls came over later and joined the fun, but I forgot to take pictures of all of them. We hope that they move back or closer whenever Philip gets done with his residence.
We threw G's teacher, Ms. Kidwell a surprise shower after the end of year party. Ms. Kidwell will soon be Mrs. Hall. The kids have enjoyed being in her class as she shared details of her upcoming wedding. Her fiance was the class postman. Everyweek he would send the class a letter telling them what skills they were going to learn during the week. He even made a couple appearances. They are getting married in June and we can't wait to attend! G only wants to go so he eat some cake!
Last Wednesday, M and I headed out to G's school for his end of year party. M was so excited about being at school with G. Most of the activities took place outside. I was so glad that it was first thing in the morning, the weather was perfect. That was the last comfortable day outside. Its been in the high 90's ever since that day. Anyways, they had a water gun fight, played with a parachute (M's favorite), bounced in the bounce house, drew with sidewalk chalk, made a picture frame and watched a DVD that Ms. Kidwell had made with pictures from the year. I can't believe this year went by so fast!

G and is diploma G and Mawmaw Gordon The family (M was at friend's house. I didn't know how long we would be at the celebration.) G and Ms. Kidwell G, Luke, and Walker I can't believe my baby boy has completed kindergarten!! I cried this morning in bed. It's all bittersweet! I enjoy that he is older and more independent, but also sad since he needs me less and less. I felt so old this morning. I can't imagine what I'll feel like when the baby is graduating. University had their kindergarten celebration at Gateway Church. The school could not hold everyone. There were over 160 kindergarten kids this year at the school. Gateway was nice enough to open their doors. The kids sang about 5 songs and then showed a DVD of clips from the year. G had grown so much this year physically, spiritually, mentally. He has had a Christian teacher who has loved on all her students. He can read books, excels at math, and loves to learn about the Presidents. His best friends at school were Walker, Joshua, and Luke. After much prayer and thought, G will be going to a different school in the fall, as will his best buddy, Walker. We have enjoyed the location of UES and his teacher, but the size of the school is way too big. There are many opportunities G is missing out on by being at such a large school. The school is built for around 500 students. There are over 1200 students attending this year. We will be sending him to a much smaller, private school in the fall. We are very excited about all the possibilities and learning experiences!
