Reese finished Preschool and My students Graduated

June was a crazy month! Reese finished preschool and enjoyed every minute of it. She is so excited for kindergarten (mostly to ride the school bus =)).  She had a concert and did a great job. It has been so much fun watching her grow over the year and I am so excited to watch her blossom even more as she enters kindergarten in the fall.

I had the chance to go to graduation again with some of my favorite students.  I had the privilege of reading their names as they walked across the stage and I truly wish them the best as they move on to life after high school.

Reese's Dance Recital =)

Reese participated in a dance class once a week all school year this year. She absolutely loved it and had a blast at her recital.....she asked the next day when she could have another recital =).

Sister and Cousin Weekend!

My sister and niece Alaina came over for a weekend to visit and have a girls weekend.  We all had a blast and enjoyed their stay =). We stayed busy and packed in a lot in the few days that they were here!
"hike" to the Spokane falls and a picnic lunch 

Mini birthday party to celebrate all 3 of their birthdays =)

Avery loves her tangled hair =)

Avery turns 3 and Easter!

Craziness that Avery is 3 and also that her birthday happened to land on Easter. She did not mind one bit. The day was about her.  We had Nate's family over for brunch and an Easter egg hunt. Reese found the "10 dollar golden egg."  Avery loved opening presents and loved everything she got. With my family across the state, the girls always get a slew of presents that are mailed as well. Both girls love checking the mailbox during the week of their birthday to see if any packages arrived =).

10 dollar egg!!!

Pouting because she cannot find any eggs =)

Avery is quite the character these days. She can definitely be a challenge (especially around meal times, dinner mainly) but she is also the type to tell you she loves you 500 times a day.
She loves: fruit snacks, her family, minnie mouse, skipping, playing outside, watching Reese at dance class, shopping, and "B" her blanket, and going on hikes.

Dislikes: meal time (especially dinner), bugs, losing out on things, car washes =)
