Garrett graduated from preschool this week and it was cute as cute can be!!! Our main objective for Garrett to be in preschool was to bring him out of his shell. Our plan worked!!! During graduation Garrett had to stand up in front of at least 100 people and do his speaking part loudly and clearly, and he did it!!! We were so proud of him. During the graduation "ceremony" the teacher showed a video of the kids throughout the year. One of the songs that played on the DVD was a song called, "let them be little". I'm here to tell you, it was a tear jerker. It was yesterday that he was born. I have to remind myself that they grow up so fast especially on the hard days.
We are looking forward to a fun summer with lots of time at the park, the pool and maybe the zoo. comes Garrett!!!!

The best Mother's day ever!!!

What better gift could a mother ask for than her kids to be happy, healthy, oh and a spa day. Peyton is working on my hair, while Kyndra and Garrett are working on my pedicure. I'm very grateful for my sweet kids. I think about a book I read a while ago called, "How to survive your greatest blessings". It was a funny book with some real true here and there throughout the pages. Being a stay at home mom is manotnous and mundane with very little reward at times, but also brings moments of pure joy. I'm so thankful that my Heavenly Father trusted me to be their mom and I pray I can do it well.

My future hall of famer

Garrett is playing T-ball and loving it. He tells everyone that he wins every game. (They don't keep score) We originally signed him up for tball to bring him out of his shell so he'll be ready for kindergarten. It's done that and more. He is really enjoying it. The kids start out the season by hitting off the T and by the end of the season they are being coach pitched and he hits it every time. I'm so proud of him, he is doing really well with his base ball skills and he is also opening up and talking to people more.

So, I'm usually about 3 months behind on my posts.--- Kyndra was baptized on February 6th. Here she is practicing with Tyler and then a cute picture of just moments before the big moment. I am so proud of her decision and her excitement to make this important step in her life.
