Preschool Graduation 2013

Rowyn had her preschool graduation ceremony yesterday.
Such a cute program, Young-Un's really has the best owners and staff.  Can't say enough good things about them.

Making their way in.

Getting a pep talk from Miss Deb to sing REALLY loud. :)

Singing the 'Something in my Shoe' song.

Breaking out the kazoo's

Receiving her diploma from Miss Barb

Final song with everyone.

Special cookie treats, yummy!

Rowyn and her friend, Alyssa.

Rowyn and her best preschool teacher, Miss Carsen.

After the ceremony, we went to Red Robin for dinner.  Rowyn and her Daddy played a game on the menu and Digs was announcing she won.

Her 'Me and My Mommy' page.
Good to know she thinks I'm 70.
And I drink wine because you're naughty.  Ha!
Love that girl, I really do.

Back on her very first day.

And I found this in a pile of things Camdyn brought home.

"My mom works at Mercy, but she gets coughed on and I am so sorry for her"

House and stuff

Yes, we're still working on the house.
But we're getting close.
Real close.
And I can't wait to move in!

Most of my lights are in, like these in the mud room.  So far, my foyer light is the only one that didn't work and had to be sent back.  

My doors are all in and they're hanging trim now.  Obviously, they all have to be caulked and painted yet, but they're in.  Yay!

Tantrum because I wouldn't let her climb up into her attic playroom.  It's still a work in progress.

Clyde finished my beam ceiling yesterday.  Now caulk, paint, and putting the can lights in and it's good to go.  Just waiting on my fire place to get here.

My cabinets came in.  These are some of the gray island cabinets.  The rest will be white around the perimeter.

Clyde hung my chandelier and I finished putting it together.  I found it at Overstock for a steal...I love it!  

Hopefully, in the next week or so, a lot of things will get finished up and I can post some more pictures.  My flooring is all ordered, I can't wait for it to be in.  I'm not a patient person, this waiting is killing me.

Camdyn loves to read to me.  It's awesome to see how much she's learned this past year.

She is a super hard worker at home too, so after cleaning the entire basement and doing work in the yard, we rewarded her with getting her ears pierced.  She had desperately wanted them done and she earned them!  She was so excited, she could hardly contain herself!

Softball and baseball season's are in full swing (pun intended) and Riley had her first tournament this weekend.  She hit a line drive over left center and wound up with a grand slam.  I was so glad I got to see it, since my work schedule hasn't exactly meshed with their game schedule. 

Like MJ, Rowyn does her best work with her tongue out. ;)

Everyone in Rowyn's class got a chance to bring their classroom turtle, Tucker, home for the weekend.  You document their time together in a book he comes home with.  We had a great time with it!

We stopped at Yo So Sweet the other day and ran into our neighbors.  The boys...well, being boys.
 The girls. :)  Nice stripes, Digs.

Today was Rowyn's last day at Young Un's.  We both cried last night, when we were talking about not getting to have lunch together everyday.  Tonight is her cap and gown graduation and Im sure to be a blubbering mess.  My baby is headed to Kindergarten. How is that possible. :(

For teacher gifts this year, we went with Target gift cards and these Ball Mason jar gum balls with this super cute printable from here.

Enjoy your summer vacation!
I wonder how long before I hear, "I'm bored, there's nothing to do!"
