YAY! We have survived Kindergarten:) Apparently when you've learned the chicken dance you get you'r diploma. Just kidding, I say this because I believe at all kindergarten graduations they do this dance. ( I did when I was in kindergarten) Zachary's graduation was this past Thursday. It was cute and he did a very good job. I'm really proud of him. Kindergarten was a bit of a struggle this year for both of us. He survived getting his bee turned (getting in trouble) for flipping the lights on and off, (I blame this on the electrician father!) scaring other students in the bathroom (cool echo) yelling in the bathroom (again the echo) jumping off the swirly slide, and not going down on his bum (because it was fun he tells me :) and many other mischievious things. He was kicked out of school and had a fun parent/ teacher/ principle meeting ( like the second or third week of school ) But.... WE HAVE SURVIVED and Aunt Mannie you better watch out because first grade here we come!!!!!! (We're so excited ) Now on to fun things like SUMMER:) :) :)

Gotta Love T-Ball

T-Ball has been a lot of fun this year. I find myself coaching Zachary's team. Which has been very interesting. Zac was way excited, which made me happy :) Probably because I'm never able to go with him on school activities because of the girls. But so far I've been able to arrange for the girls to be taken care of while I help Zachary's team. This year we've decided he does best to throw with his left hand, and bat with his right. We need to get him a new mit. He was taking off his mit before he would throw the ball! Weird child, I can't figure him out ;)

Zachary was a very attentive first base man!

What a cheeser.

Part of our cute little team. Five of them were gone.

One, Two, Three, SWING!!!!!!

Way to go Zachary.

I can not win !

I can not win with these two. I'm very proud to have very smart kids. In fact I brag about it a lot. But there are some days I wish the weren't so quick!
Case in point: The loft.

They scoot the bar stool over and climb right up. AND WAVE HI!!!!!!!!
I'm done trying to save their sweet little heads from falling off of things. If they are so smart then they are on their OWN!

Mother's Day!

Cleaning and scrubbing can wait til tomorrow, for babies grow up we've learned to our sorrow, quiet down cobwebs, dust go to sleep, I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep.

What can I say I love being a Mom!
The ups the downs the good the bads. It's all I've ever wanted :) I hope all you Mom's had a wonderful Mother's day filled with all the things you love, because I sure did.
We went to St. George this Mother's day to see Jared's Dad on Saturday and his Mom on Sunday. Only Zachary got sick so we had to come home early on Sunday. Poor guy has the stomach flu again :( Any way we had fun at dinner and going to the park. I forgot my camera and left it at the room so I have no pictures ( I figured I would get lots on Sunday!) any way I'm sure Grandpa John took lots.
I'm so thankful for my Mom and what a wonderful woman she is. She has taught me a lot and still has to hold my hand on my journey through motherhood. I love you Mom.
