Kindergarten Program

Kylee's first year of school has almost come to an end! Yesterday was her kindergarten program. The kids sang and danced to some of their favorite songs.

The kids were supposed to dance with their parents on this song...but Kylee didn't want to dance with me. She said she'd rather dance with her friend.

I love this song. It was so cute to hear Kylee singing and practicing it at home. It was even cuter to watch her sign it. Oh, our little Kylee Coo-Coo is getting so big. We are glad she had such a wonderful time in Kindergarten.

Aaron and Collin enjoyed the show for about 5 minutes. After that, they just wanted to play on the rock wall and scooters.

Alyssa's Way

Apparently, Alyssa didn't like the turn-around method, so she made up her own. I thought it was pretty funny. Good thing there is only one step.

The Great Outdoors

It was pretty nice outside today. So, we decided to go on a walk to see Becca's baby. Well, Kylee and I saw her, the boys were more interested in playing with the balls. Then we came home and played in the backyard for a little bit. It got windy and cold so we didn't stay out long, but the kids enjoyed it while it lasted. Hopefully, warm weather will be here soon to stay.

Alyssa is getting used to the grass. She actually
smiled when I put her on it.


Kylee was sad because Aaron
found the sprinkler flag first.

Luckily, we found a flag for everyone and
Kylee was instantly happy.

Tell me again, why do we buy toys?

Family Home Evening

So, after having to give my little talk about ideas for Family Home Evening, I felt like we should do more to help our own Family Home Evening be more effective. This week, we played hide and seek with church pictures. Before we hid them, we went through and said who or what was in each picture. We then sent the kids out while we hid them (in very obvious places). The kids absolutely loved this game (Aaron cried because he wanted to find more). After, we sang songs. They love this, too. As long as they each gets a turn to pick and sing their own song. This is my favorite of Collin, it's so cute what they learn. He probably doesn't know half of what he's singing (Aaron still ends the song with righteousleep), which makes it even cuter. All in all, it was a pretty good FHE, not too much crying and no fighting, maybe giving that talk was a good thing afterall.
