Sliding Practice

A's All Star team had some fun sliding practice the other night.
They hosed down a tarp and the girls went to sliding.
They had a blast.

Even the younger sister and brothers had fun watching the
"big girls" slide.

Reading to R's Class

A wrote and illustrated a story that she got to share
with R's class at the end of the school year.
Here she is reading to the class.
The kindergarteners are listening so well.
They loved having a 2nd grader come to read to them.
R was especially happy.
She loves her sister and getting to show her off to her friends.

Sisterly love?

Thanks, A, for sharing your talent with R's class.

Memorial Day Parade

On Memorial Day we enjoyed our town's awesome Memorial Day Parade.
Who knew it was so huge?
We had never been, but the girls and B were in it with their All Stars' teams.
It was so much fun.
The parade lasted 1 1/2 hours.
That's a lot of floats.

Here is M with a friend enjoying watching the parade.

Here comes B and R with the 2 tball All Star teams.
Once M saw her daddy, she cried for him, so he took her along for the
rest of the parade.

Here is A trying to "peg" me with candy.

Thank you to all the Men and Women who have served our Country.
We truly appreciate your act of service.

Best Friends

Here is A and her best friend R!
They are enjoying their end of the year class party.
Both girls love to play some softball and will spend their summer on the fields.

R's First Field Day

R had her first field day at school the other day.
Due to the rainy weather, they had a condensed time of
activities and relays in the gym.
Since they are in kindergarten, they don't know the difference.

M got to go and have fun too.

How sweet?
M ready for the games to begin.
R's friend K waiting too!
Waiting for the rope swing.
Just a swingin'
Sack Race...
M wanted to sack race too...
relay race...go R!
Then M had to help with the Limbo

It turned out to be a great day and so much fun.
I know that R had a good time, and so did M and I!
Cannot wait until next year.

R's First Field Trip

R had her first school field trip a couple of weeks ago.
I got to chaperone and we had a blast.
We went to a nearby game ranch and the children had a
great time feeding and petting all the animals.

R and her friend L!

Feeding one of the many deer.

I am so glad that I was able to go with R on her field trip.
We had a good time and I love spending that precious time with her.
