To Arkansas we went

We went to Jason and Katie's last weekend to visit and to go to a wedding. We spent Saturday afternoon riding bikes and burning energy from being in the car all morning. We brought the girls' bikes and scooters. They enjoyed J/K's street being very flat, where our's isn't so flat! We even talked Kailey into taking the training wheels off her bike. She tried and gave it her best effort. It will take more practice and building up of her confidence.

Jason and Katie also took the girls to to the Wild Wilderness Drive Through Safari, you can check it out  here. Their pictures and videos are posted up on the Shutterfly site. You can look here. Thanks Jason for adding the pictures and videos that way. Hope its easier for all of us! Thanks also for a great weekend. It was fun and good to get away. And our proof we were at a wedding. :)

Kailey's Preschool Graduation

So we have finished last year of preschool, and her second preschool graduation. This one gets her the good kindergarten! She's very excited and ready for kindergarten. We've been waiting until the last minute to find out about summer school. Our district offers a going into kindergarten summer program that we have heard great things about. We enrolled her as soon as we could only to wait to see if they would go on with summer school because of funding. We found out a week ago, that summer school would go on fully funded (which means FREE to us!). Kailey had a wonderful teacher and aide, that was just what Kailey needed. Her classmates became good friends and I know she will miss them.

Mother's Day

We had a good Mother's Day here. Breakfast was made for me, consisting of eggs, blueberry muffins, bacon, bananas and strawberries. We went to church with Dad at BMPC today. We had lunch with Margaret, Ronald, Brandon and Andrew at Ventana's in ES. I was able to enjoy the rest of the afternoon in the sunroom scrapbooking. Here's the pictures of the girls and I. I will add pictures of my "loot" soon.
I am so blessed with healthy girls, a wonderful husband, and a Mom that left a legacy of Motherhood to me. I am so thankful for the "other" moms that I have been blessed with, an additional Mom that has made a place in her life for me, and so many others that desire to help and fill the role in any way possible. Thank you!

A New Life with the Morgans

I've found a new way to share videos and our general pictures that I hope works out well for all of us. I have tried a couple others, but I'm into simplicity! I hope that it works out well.....

Blast from the Past

In a conversation with Dad last week, he said his neighbor had brought him some cookies that he didn't "need". I got them on Monday and brought them home not really looking at them. I opened them on Tuesday to have one. I was so shocked, and had to sit down to eat a couple. They were the same sugar cookies as the cookies I remember Grandma Vera making, minus the sprinkles on top. I don't think I've had those cookies in quite some time. The memories that came back to me of eating them were at the house on Willow. Mark said he remembered his Grandma making sugar cookies that tasted like these too. I have one left...I'm going to go enjoy that now.
