Logan's Last T-Ball Game

Logan before the game.

This is Logan warming up with
 one of his teammates.

Logan batting. He was batting lefty for some reason. He can hit the ball pretty for now from either side though. He loves it.

This is the team with the coaches after the game giving a cheer to the other team. One of the dads bought everyone on the team a Transformer and a Littlest Pet Shop for the two girls. It was a fun season and a fun team for him to be on.

Kindergarten End of the Year program

Logan and me waiting for the program to start. Lyndie was with us too in her stroller.

Principal Mr. Pullan presented all the kids with a medal and a certificate. Mallory is in the pink shirt with her arms up being dramatic of course.

This is Mallory with her Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Harding. Mallory loved her so much this year and we are sad to be leaving her class, but it is time to move on and move up. I have to admit that I cried when we were saying goodbye.

What a busy month!

These are some of the things we have been up to this month. This is Mallory's first field trip. We went to Hogle Zoo and yes I rode the bus with her class. I have forgotten how hot and noisy they are, but all in all it was a fun morning.

This is at the new Asian Highlands at the zoo. Why buy all the stuff when you can just take a picture with it on? :) Ha Ha Ha

Another school event. This is the Dance Festival Mallory participated in. Each grade did a dance and all the parents came to watch outside on the hill at the school. Logan and Lyndie lasted about 5 min, but I endured and stayed anyway. It was so fun to see all the hard work some of the grades put into this. Mallory's grade did the Hokey-Pokey.

Now onto Mallory's birthday party. We had a pizza party with 13 kids. Yes it was loud, but they all had a fun time. We watched Enchanted and did sparklers outside. The next picture will give you a taste of what our house looked like when it was all done.

I did not take a picture of our basement, but it was covered in popcorn and starburst wrappers. I did not realize that popcorn could get so messy, but at least it was easy to clean up.

More dance recital pictures

Mallory loves to pose for the camera and perform. She was having fun showing me all of her dance poses before we left for her recital.

Lyndie was in the audience with us and did really well there. The children's teachers were on stage doing the dance to the side for the kids to see and Lyndie was actually copying the teachers the best she could and was completely mezmerized by it all. TIP:(a bag of SKITTLES really helps to keep your children quiet!:))

This is Mallory's class performing on stage. They had one of the biggest classes. I think 12 girls ages 5 and 6. They did a great job and we are very proud of Mallory. I may post a video of it soon if I can get the time.

School Carnival

This was the little train that they had to ride in at the carnival.

This was a giant slide shaped like a shark and this was the shark's mouth.

Poor Lyndie! She was done after 10 minutes, but there was no way I was letting her out to walk. There were too many kids to lose her in. Logan had just come from T-Ball and was tired, but quickly got into the fun.

This picture is bad, but this is the little ferris wheel that was there to ride in. Mallory and Logan are on the left hand side sitting by each other.

Mallory's Dance Recital

Ok! So we made it to the end of the year with Mallory's dance. The 
whole year was pretty involved and it was busy to have her in dance, but we did it. She did great it her recital and knew the dance really well. She 
also loved to get her hair done all pretty and have her make up done with lipstick too:). We will probably not do dance next year as Mallory says she wants to take up piano or violin instead. Maybe I can live vicariously through Lyndie instead. (Ha Ha Ha)
