last day of kindergarten!

Now this is a hard day.  My little Payton-Pie is not so little anymore. And it is killlling me! And yes I know I will probably be saying this every year, I have so far, lol, but seriously this year is a hard one!! She has grown so much, learned a ton, and lost a lot of teeth…ha! She looks older and more mature…I think that is the part that is getting me the most. But she is still my same little silly giggly caring sweet girl.
I am so proud of you sweet girl, you have worked so hard and learned so much. You have thoroughly enjoyed every bit of Kindergarten and that makes my Mama heart happy. You are going to rock first grade!!
…now off to go cry in a corner…booo hoooo.

Last day of Preschool 2017-2018

Just a quick post on this little dude. Payton’s comes next week! Last day of school today for my little guy…who is now a big guy. A few inches taller and about 5 pounds heavier. End of the school years are always bittersweet for me. I just can’t believe how fast it has gone. I can’t believe he is on to PreK next year!!! Crazy! I won’t go on because it will just become one sappy page of me rambling, but had to get on here to say how incredibly proud of him I am and what an amazing little person he is becoming.

I had the weekend off…and it sure was a good one. Sun, water, sleep, football, a day with best friends, and so much fun with Byron and the kiddos.
Byron even made me a cake! And he gets extra points for homemade frosting!!
I am just one happy Mama.

4 days of happy shenanigans right here:

Suns out!

The sun was out and shining…and it hit 70 degrees! Woot! So the kids went out to play and 15 minutes later came back in begging for the sprinkler and popsicles. Sounded like a great idea to me!! So just a few pics of our Sunday Funday:

A fun little Easter Craft..

This little Easter craft was especially fun, because Miles got to pick out almost all the little trinkets for it! He had fun at Target picking out the designs, gems, sparkles, and stickers! And then he actually sat there with Payton for a good half hour decorating! Though it is pretty sad…this was the first time that I could just stand back and watch…no help needed. 2 big kids going to work.
