Happy Memorial Day

They fell, but o’er their glorious grave
Floats free the banner of the cause they died to save.

Another One Bites the Dust


Today was the last day of the 2009-2010 school year!  I know it sounds trite but I can hardly believe it is over.  The older I get the faster time goes by and I don’t like it one bit.  I want to treasure these days with my small children as long as I can.  Maybe that’s why I take so many pictures…


Cutie Pie’s class had a water fun day out on the lawn.  I stayed to help out and ended up getting drenched!  The water felt great since it was so darn hot out this morning.

Cutie Pie’s favorite toy was the wagon.  He hardly let it out of his sight all morning!

He washed it.

He took friends for rides in it.

When he did finally put the wagon handle down, Cutie Pie enjoyed shooting me and his teachers with the water squirter…

Toward the middle of the morning the children gathered on little picnic tables to have snack.  Snack consisted of adorable chocolate cookie graduation hats that a mother sent in, a bag of animal crackers, water and ice pops!  Whoa!  Can you say SUGAR OVERLOAD?!  Luckily the teachers sent the children back out to play in the water for a while to work off all the sweets they consumed.


Wildman’s VPK graduation program began in his classroom at 11:20am.  J met me there to watch Wildman and his classmates say the Pledge of Allegiance, recite a poem, sing a few songs, receive their completion certificates and preschool bibles.  It was bittersweet.  Even Mrs. H got choked up.  It was a good year for both of my boys and we are sad to see it end.

Of course ice cream sundaes with your buddies helps to ease the pain a bit 🙂
