Another Haircut

Richard got another haircut at the end of May--he handles it well, but it's clear that he really doesn't know what to make of it. In any case, the pictures are too good not to post.
Checkin' it all out in the mirror...


All done!

Last Day of School!

Shirley's last day of school was bittersweet for many reasons, not the least of which is that it closed at the end of this year. After many years as a part of our community, Roseville Nursery Group has closed its doors. Shirley learned and grew so much in her year at RNG--I am so happy and proud of her.
Richard wanted to get in on the "Last Day" photo action.
Such a big girl...she has changed so much.
Remember this? What a difference nine months makes!

Mrs. Bonnie and Mrs. Janie just realized that Shirley's lips are blue from candy.

So thankful for these lovely ladies.
We are so thankful Shirley had the opportunity to spend a year with these wonderful people. God's blessings on you, Mrs. Bonnie and Mrs. Janie as you pursue what God has next in store for both of you. We miss you already!

First Shave...

Let it be known that on May 24, 2012, Richard Joseph cut himself shaving for the very first time. I still don't know how he got ahold of a razor. I mean, I didn't realize he'd even hit puberty yet.
Of course, every little boy wants to shave just like daddy... I am thankful he is ok!
He didn't even know he had hurt himself.

"QUIT TAKING MY PICTURE!!! Mom! You're so embarrassing!"

Cool dude, Mr. Tough Guy. Don't be fooled...the bandaid lasted about hirty seconds before he ripped it off.

Preschool Program!

It's the post you've all been waiting for! On May 23, Shirley had her preschool program celebrating the end of her first year of preschool. Of course, I cried all morning. Didn't she JUST START preschool? How can she already be done with her first year?! We are so proud of our girl.
Now, you are in for a long haul with these TEN videos. I only expect you to watch all ten if you are directly related to our girl. :) Otherwise, I recommend watching "Peter Hammers," "We are the Dinosaurs," "The Fruit Song," and "Superman."

Zoo Field Trip

On May 7, Shirley's preschool took a field trip to Como Zoo. It was highly anticipated and we had a wonderful time!
Don't they look so small next to the big yellow bus?

Everybody climb on board!

Shirley and her friend.

You're not supposed to climb on the giraffe!

So thankful I got to chaperone! What a fun day!
