Alicia's Kindergarten Graduation

May 31, 2012 was a big day for Alicia. For one- it was her 6th birthday, two- it was her Kindergarten graduation, and three- she didn't miss a day of school all year, so she got a perfect attendance award, too!

There was a nice little ceremony at school where the kids sang songs, performed skits, and then they received their diploma from the principal and their teacher. Then the kids got to have a party in their classroom and had one last goodbye with their classmates and teacher before it was the big summer break.

Way to Alicia, we are so proud of you and your completion of Kindergarten. Alicia really learned a lot this year, and we can't wait to see how much more this next year of 1st grade will bring.

First night of tennis practice for Alicia!

Alicia loved her first tennis session, so we'll see how it progresses! Next time I'll try and get an action shot. :)

Spoons rock!

Ben improving his big mouth technique. Lol.. Perhaps Ben is thinking... "I like eating cereal with a spoon as I can now shovel in even more cereal and milk at once!"

While on this mornings walk, Ben started dozing off in the wagon. Amazing enough he stayed upright during it all, yeah fit lap seatbelts in wagons :)

Perhaps all 200 blocks are now out of the box

Who needs a ball pit when I can dump out all my blocks and roll around in them?! I think the box is empty now, because I'm happy.

Tanner helping the kids

Tanner said he can lend a paw and help Ben and Alicia build something with their cool Kinnex blocks.

Where's the white line?

I feel like I need to draw a white chalk or masking tape line around him, lol. He's cashed out for the morning.
