Ashley has had quite the year- She has done so many wonderful things and we are really proud of her! She finished off her 1st grade year with a certificate honoring her as the student with the most books read out of 6, 1st grade classes. She got straight E's all 4 quarters, and she went to school every day with no complaint and a happy attitude. During the last week of school, she also had the lead in her class play. She played the role of Bella Butterfly and she did FANTASTIC!!! Last week we finished off the year of Hip Hop with a really cute dance performance. Both of these things have led us to enroll her in Christian Youth Theatre for a week this summer where they will be working on a performance of Aladdin.  Her teachers have informed us what a good performer she is- and believe me, we know!!! Its been great to watch her succeed in all of these things this year!

We have the strangest cat. I left the bag on my bed and Sophie decided it was a great place to take a nap.

Star Wars Mayhem and No more preschool

Taylor's 5th birthday party was a huge success. We had a lot of kids here, and man, they were wild! Taylor loved it, and that's all that mattered.

Taylor graduated from preschool. They had a family party at the park and a short show and graduation ceremony. I can't believe I will have two kids in all day school. No, that doesn't mean its time to have more! :)

Happy Birthday Taylor!

What better way to get back to blogging then with Taylor's 5th birthday!!! It seems like he JUST turned 4! Taylor is very obedient. He always thinks of others. He is sensitive and pretty quiet- except when he is playing Star Wars!:) Lately, Taylor loves to ride his bike, skateboard, play Wi, play light sabers, and play all of the above with his friends.
