kindergarten graduation

Sometimes you just gotta brag about your kids...right? You know you've done it! I certainly have, and now I'm about to do it a little more:) This past School year Carter was in Kindergarten, and he did so well. He came home one day with a flyer and said, "Mom, I'm going to win an Ipod!" so I read the flyer and found out the story. His School was going to hold a spell-a-thon, and he had to get pledges from friends and family for each word he got right. The ONE student that raised the most money from the ENTIRE SCHOOL would get an Ipod. So, being the loving Mother I am, I thought to myself "ya right, not going to happen", but I said to him "OK honey, if you work really hard anything is possible". longs story short...He WON THE IPOD! He got 52 out of 52 words right, and raised nearly $500. Also, he was the only kindergartner invited to the Young Authors Celebration. He was chosen because of a couple of the books he wrote and illustrated. Carters teacher would read his books to his class for story time sometimes, and she submitted his name for the honor. And wait, there is more. He also excelled in reading, he is actually a grade ahead, so he got to go to the library with 2 other kids from his grade and check out special books, which was a really big high-light for him. If you can't tell by now...I'm really proud of my little buddy for all his hard work. Ok, I'm done:)

Art Sale

Remember Carters Art Sale last year? he did so well with it that he decided to have another go round...and this time he did even better! He is so persuasive and sincere that i just don't know how you could say no to him. He has such a great heart, and the funniest personality.
I love that boy!

Fathers Day

I was just thinking the other day about My Guy, and realized we started dating over 12 years ago. I had no idea at the time that I would be spending the rest of forever with him, or how lucky I was because of that. I didn't know he would take a sad little shriveled up plant, and turn it into something beautiful. I didn't know he would find a baby bird that fell out of it's nest, and climb our 40+ foot pine tree to return it to it's home; while every bird in the state of Idaho swooped down at him, and I screamed his name in terror (true story). I didn't know he would give me 3 of the most amazing children in the world, and spend the better part of his Fathers Day at the hospital visiting and blessing the sick.
I didn't know lots of things back in the day...but now I'm old and wise.
I know My Guy would do anything for me and our children.
I know he works 80+ hours a week so I can stay home with our little Chickie's.
I know I never ever have to worry about where he is at night.
I know I love him with my whole heart, and I hope he knows how much.
