We have had a much wetter summer than normal. I mean much wetter. It's been pretty fabulous! While there have definitely been times Ive been a total grump about it (ie: when I rained about everyday for 2 weeks), it has been such a nice change from the normal drought conditions we have. And it's made things a little cooler around here too which I am definitely not complaining about:) Our summer started off wet. Really wet. And this was the time I was probably most grumpy about it. School was out and I wanted to get the kids in the pool and do fun things outside.....but it just rained. One day I decided I would just take the boys out to play in the rain instead:) Sawyer was ticked until he could lose the umbrella. Which is funny because he usually freaks out about being rained on. But he didn't want one, and I certainly didn't care at all! So after we got over that, the little boys had a blast splashing through the puddles . And I just enjoyed watching their cute little rain boot-ed feet play.

This year the preschool the kiddos go to had a music program. Eli was at the ECC (early childhood center) for two years too, but they never did anything like this. I'm not gonna lie. It was pretty sweet. The kids have music once a week, so they've been working on these songs/actions all year long. I hear them every week while Im waiting on them to get done with school, but I don't usually stick my head in to watch. So it was pretty cute to watch. And fairly impressive. This 3, 4, and 5 year olds know there stuff! I was most surprised at Parker.....he actually hates music, and usually just sits there. In fact, I've been told usually he gets upset and refuses to go at music time (have a mentioned Parker is a VERY stubborn kiddo) and they have to do quite a bit of coaxing. Anyways, Parker stood up there and sang and did all the actions. He was cracking me up because between ever single song, he would yell, "Hi mommy!" "Hi, Sawyer!" and wave as big as he could. Funny kiddo.
Kamdyn just rocked it. She's so shy and quiet, but she likes being up on stage. And she did a great job too. So fun to watch my kiddos. And a bonus was that they were at the same time, so I didn't have to run back and forth between their programs and spring parties. Next year, I only have one preschooler. It's gonna be so relaxing when it comes to party times:) But, I am only going to have one kiddo home with me all day most of the week, which will be kind of sad, and a total adjustment for me. So, now that school is out, we are just going to enjoy the summertime!
Here's some pictures of their program
These pictures are a little out of order. The ones with the teachers were taken after the program, but for some reason they are snuck in here. So anyways.....
This is Kamdyn with Miss Kelly. She is the Para in her room.
There you have it. Preschool music program at it's finest:)

The end of the year, always brings all the fun end of year activities and programs out. Eli's Kindergarten program, Kinderific, was the kickstart to our end of year activities. It was exactly what you would expect a kindergarten music program to be. Totally cheesy, a total riot, incredibly tone deaf, and adorably cute. It was so cute to watch those kids up there. They were all having so much fun and worked so hard. You could tell they just loved some of the songs they were singing. I was just cracking up through half of it because it was so cheesy and cute. But It was so fun to watch Eli. And so fun to see all the kids' personalities when they get up to perform for their parents and grandparents. There's really not much more to say on that.....it was just cute:) Eli is in a red shirt if you are having a hard time finding him......
Here's to the start of many many more cheesy school music programs to come!

It is so fun to watch your kids do something they love. And to watch them grow and change and get better at what they love. For miss K, it's dance. She loves it. If you had seen her dance two years ago, you certainly would have wondered if that was true or not:) But she has come a long way, and she does such a great job dancing! May always marks the end of the year recital for her so she can show off all her dance skills. That means we have been busy with all things dance:) It started in April when we got to have a parent watch day and got to see what they've been working on. And they tried on their costumes. This is always fun for me.....my girl is not necessarily a girly girl, but she sure loves dressing up for dance recitals!
