Happy 40th Anniversary to my mom and dad. I am abundantly blessed to be their daughter. What a lovely example they are of love and dedication!

Last Days of School

I cannot believe that we now have kiddos in 5th, 4th, 2nd, and PK4! The big girls all wrapped up their school year last week with a beautiful closing Chapel service. At the end of the service, each grade is called up by their teacher to receive their report cards and individual awards were also given. Carrigan received a ribbon for breaking the 1st grade record in the 400-meter at Track and Field Day. Brinnly received her class's prize for highest number of AR points. Mali missed that award by a few last-minute points to one of her good friends, but blew away her own goal for AR. I'm proud of them all for their effort this year.

We celebrated with an afternoon trip the pool and enjoyed hot sun, warm water, icy root beer, and carmel brownie ice cream. The babies played along sometimes in the water, sometimes in the sand nearby and even snoozed in the stroller. We look forward to more days like this!
