End of Kindergarten

It is hard to believe Logan's Kindergarten year is winding down. They had their end of year program and awards ceremony this past Thursday. Logan was so proud of his reading trophy. He has learned so much this year and I know he is going to continue to grow and mature in the coming years. My baby is growing up. He asked yesterday if he could now be called a 1st grader.

Mother Daughter Bonding

Laney and I have found the perfect mother daughter bonding opportunity. We love to eat chicken minis and drink sweet tea at Chickfila. The men in our lives should take notice that the way to our heart is through Chickfila.

Riding out the Storms..

This has been a tough storm season but I am grateful we have not had any damage. My thoughts and prayers go out to our neighbors to the north in Joplin. This is a picture of us taking cover at Mom's House. Even Cookie is under the pillow. Hoping for blue skies and sunshine ahead.

I hear you Loud and Clear..

We have been concerned about Laney's hearing as she asks us to repeat things from time to time. They had a health fair a couple of weeks ago at her preschool where they tested her hearing. She failed it in her left ear so we made a follow up appointment with an audiologist. Her test was today. She did so well listening to the doctor and being still while they tested her ears. The good news is that her hearing is fine. We took her to lunch at Chickfila after her appointments. This is a picture of our happy daughter.

Decoration Weekend

It was Decoration for Chad's family cemetary. After visiting the cemetary, we went to Pa Armer's for a belated Easter Egg hunt since ours was rained out. The kids had a great time hunting the 183 Easter eggs.

Little Lei Lei's 5K

We participated in the Little Lei Lei's 5K over the weekend. This race was a benefit for our local children's emergency shelter. It was held in memory of Logan's sweet friend Leightyn. It was evident what an impact this little girl's life had on our community and church. We received over $30,000 toward our church's building fund in memorials for Leightyn. As of last Wednesday, our church is debt free. 22 people accepted Christ at Leightyn's funeral and her memory walk raised over $8000 for the local shelter. Here are some pictures of Chad and the kids from the race.

50 Point Chart

Logan has been reading books all year and taking tests at school over each one. When he passes a test, he gets 0.5 points. Last week he made the 50 point chart which means he has read over 100 books this year. He is now reading the 1st grade books since he has read all of the Kindergarten level readers. I am so proud of him. He will receive a trophy at the end of the year program. He also got to pick a prize out of the School Treasure Box. Here he is with his prize.

This is definitely worth documenting. We were dressed in time to take a picture before school this morning.

School Carnival Fun

Logan's school carnival was this past Friday. We had lots of fun playing games with Logan's school friends. It is hard to believe that Logan's kindergarten year is almost over. He has learned so much this year.

It is Raining

and I feel like this...
