Our little boy graduated Kindergarten! The whole event was ADORABLE!!!
The kids were all dressed in their adorable "sunday best"and they looked like miniature grown ups.
After their little presentation, they went out and marched back in with their caps and gowns on. The cuteness level was through the roof.
After they had lined up on stage, the school principal came by with their little diplomas. After they all announced that the kids had officially graduated Kindergarten, they all moved their little tussles from one side to the other. And I know I'm overusing this word today, but it was ADORABLE!!!
After everything was done, all the parents gathered the kids for photos, and I think that over a thousand pictures were taking in less than five minutes. Flashes were coming from everywhere and the kids were never really sure were to look. But I honestly think it just made it cuter. And Truett seemed to know to look right at me for most shots, so I am really happy with how these turned out.
He is growing so incredibly fast, but he is making us proud in the process.
This was a snow day last minute idea, just to give the kids something to do. All you need are:
- Paper Towel roll
- Duck Tape
- Aluminum Foil
- Dry Rice
Pour about a half a cup of rice in to the stick, over the foil. The rice hitting the foil is what will make the "rain" sound.
And that is it! Now you have a fun rain stick to use to tell stories or to use as an instrument when the kids make music.
How do you spend the time during long snow days?

With my folks living almost eight hours away, we only get to see them a couple of times a year, so when they come to see us it is Easter, Birthday and Christmas celebrations and gifts all at once for the kids.
Since they came in mid October, the kids were still in school and that freed us, grown ups to go sight seeing and antique shopping. You know- the really boring things that the kids don't want to do. How often do you see your family?
