Last week, Kayla's drama/singing class presented a VERY abbreviated version of Sound of Music -- minimal props, scenes, backdrops, costume changes, etc. She was Liesel, the 16-yr old daughter of Captain VonTrapp.
Even though she was one of the younger ones in the group, she had a lot of poise and confidence!
She was excited to have HER VERY OWN MICROPHONE!
The final bow:)
This past weekend Joshua's baseball team had a tournament. He pitched several innings and did a great job -- this mama gets nervous and HATES full counts!!!!
Playing 1st -- fully concentrating with his tongue out!
They ended up getting second place -- and after losing in the championship game to a team that didn't exactly display the greatest sportsmanship, it was a good reminder that there are lots of life lessons to be learned through things like baseball!
Can you tell Tyler "might" have had a few oreos while at the game????
Finally, the sun did come out, and the warming blankets became fort-building materials!
Several weeks ago we went to Topeka for my niece's 1st birthday -- since my youngest brother and I color coordinated (!) I had to get a quick picture:)
Tyler's kindergarten class had their end of the year music program last week. Each of the 5 classes dressed up as Jungle Animals -- Tyler's class was Hyenas!
It was cute to see him! Sobering that our baby is wrapping up kindergarten:(
At the corner where we meet the kids from school -- his friend across the street happened to also have a Superman shirt on:)
Tyler is trying to save up for a really big Lego set. I'm still not sure of his counting system, but somehow he was making tally marks in an effort to count the money in his "save" and "spend" envelopes!
Yesterday, I went with Tyler's class on a field trip to the Red Barn Farm in Weston, MO.
Tyler's group actually got to see the Queen Bee -- it was the first time the "farmer" (tour guide) had ever seen that herself! It was quite the talk at the dinner table last night!
On a class hay ride!
And on the bus ride back, this 6-year old "might" have fallen asleep:) It was a busy weekend!
