Goodbye, Kindergarten

Yesterday, Max graduated Kindergarten. Now, I have to be honest. I think preschool/kindergarten graduation is a little silly. I especially could not believe how many people brought bouquets of flowers and balloons for their kids. I just don't get it. And parents are kind of obnoxious - standing in front of everyone to get their shot, oblivious to everyone else trying to see their own kids. But anyway, they were doing it, so I went with it.

We got a decent spot, and the kids walked in. It was pretty cute. Max saw us right away, and Walter was disturbed that Max's shirt was tucked in, but I guess Max likes it that way.


All three classes stood together to sing a few songs, and Max kept looking at us, grinning.





Then all the kids sat down, and each class took a turn to stand on the riser, sing a song, and then were called to get their "diploma."



Finally, we had a cookie reception and of course picture time.



Grandma got to come!

Senior pose! LOL

Class of 2027 (what?!)

I'm pretty proud of my little guy. He hasn't had the easiest year - we have had some struggles in behavior management, but the last couple of months, he has really been awesome. I can't believe this first year has come and gone, and I think it really flies from this point on. 2027 sounds like a made up year, but I'll be writing about his high school graduation ceremony in no time, I think.

New camera

Last week, I was sitting outside while the kids were playing and decided to play around with my new camera, testing out some of the different settings. I found these cute little mushroom to try out the macro setting.



Later, I was sitting in my lawn chair as I took the rest of these. I literally did not move for any of the following, just changed the zoom. I'm pretty impressed with the clarity for the zoom and distance.

The kiddos were playing with this squirrel in our lot. He was teasing them, I think.

My new mailbox. Love it! (Still sitting across the yard!)







Soccer

Max's last soccer game was supposed to be last Saturday, but it got rained out. Apparently it was reschedule for Tuesday, but our coach forgot to let me know, so we missed it. I did see her later and she gave me Max's soccer pictures.

Mother's Day 2015

Mother's Day is always kind of fun. A day or weekend to think about moms and how important they are is needed. And it doesn't hurt to get some lovin' from my kiddos either!

The kids brought home their crafts from school/daycare on Friday, so that was really fun to look at. Handprint stuff never gets old, and the little surveys they do are usually pretty hilarious too. Out of the mouths of babes, and all that... :)


24... ah, my sweet princess.

Hilarious - can you tell I've been having car trouble? I also like that he knows I appreciate that he is my good sleeper!

Max had LOTS of papers for me.

Sunday, we had church, as usual. I wanted everyone to get ready a little early, so we could do our annual photo for my album. It's kind of ridiculous how cute my kids are? I can let you in on a little secret that one of them was not really acting as angelic as he appears in this picture. :)


After church we had lunch at our favorite Mexican restaurant, where all the moms were given a balloon. Which my kiddos promptly fought over.

At home, Walter and I planted the rose bush he gave me. I love it!! I have decided that I definitely love something I can plant over a bouquet of flowers.


Max's sweet message in the car after lunch. He can be sweet when he wants!!

We had dinner with Mom and Dad, Grandma and Grandpa Tersinar, and Dustin and Amelia at Gebharts, which Caroline slept through. It was nice to catch up, and I think it was a very nice Mother's Day. (Next year, I could do with a little less naughtiness from my babies.)


Soccer - Week 5

Soccer this week was kind of miserable. It started softly raining the second the whistle blew to start our game, naturally. The kids (and parents) powered through to play most of the game in the rain, until it got a little harder, with 10 or 15 minutes left to go. We called it good and ended a little early, and ran to the cars.
