It is official! Schools out!!! I love having my kids home during the summer. We are on no one's time, but our own! It is great!! Here are the girls on the last day of school. Do they look smarter???
Okay, so maybe this normal, but Marley had an absolutely perfect report card. PERFECT! And in her testing packet, she missed ZERO! (I realize this IS Kindergarten, I am not taking her down to the community college to have to her tested in!) Way to go Marley, she also has re-discovered riding her bike without training wheels. She learned how about 9 months ago, but then got scared and we put them back on. Then Paige said come on Marley I will help re-teach you, and in only a few minutes she had it down again. Now she runs in and out of the house riding that bike.

We have been preparing for our yard sale this weekend. The kids love to have a bake sale during it, so we are busy making cookies and banana bread muffins. They usually rake in the dough, people basically buy stuff cause they're cute. Paige takes this very seriously, she makes the signs, gets the cash box ready and sets up the goods. She even uses wax paper to handle the cookies when she sales them. Should be fun!! If it doesn't rain.

50's Kindergarten Graduation

Marley graduated from Kindergarten yesterday. It was so fun. They had a 50's themed celebration. The kids learned the songs, "Lollipop", "Don't step on my blue sued shoes" "Sandman" "Shake Rattle and Roll" and another school song as well. They performed them so well. Marley really did a great job this year. Things just come naturally for her, art, penmanship, you name it, she's got it down. We love her! I have been noticing how tall she has gotten, I wish I would have measured her before she started school this year. But by the looks of her high water pants she has grown an inch or two!

Happy Birthday Buck

(Here is the cake I would have made if I made cakes like this, but then again I don't know, because Buck would say something like, "why did they make that deer look like that", "those antlers would never be on that type of buck" Or he would say, "that type of camo is not right for the area we live in, it is too dark" But really he would say, "thanks babe, you did awesome!")

Today is my Buck's birthday. If you don't know to much about him I thought I would share some my favorite things about him.
#1 He is clean, squeaky clean. Not that you would want to...under the most desperate circumstances to eat out of someone's ear, but if you had to you could eat out of his!! He have stock in Q-tips.
#2 He is extremely thoughtful.
#3 He works hard.
#4 He keeps are yard and Pops and Linda's yard looking PERFECT!!!
#5 He is funny, not funnier than me, but funny.
#6 He does things with the girls that make them feel special and teaches them things.
#7 He has nice thick hair, but he shaves it. I love how he looks with a fresh shaved head, and face for that matter. He is fanatical about keeping himself groomed up!
#8 He treats me good, spoils me in fact.
#9 Have I ever mentioned that he brings me flowers?
#10 I am convinced that there isn't ANYTHING he couldn't do.
