Spend the night party

 Hannah wanted a spend the night party for her birthday this year. She wanted Kylie and Mrs. Allison to come. Easy enough! She had a great time. She and Kylie played for a while then she opened her gifts and we moved on to painting. She wanted us to all paint with a little help from Derrick we painted beautiful butterflies. Thanks Mrs. Sarah for letting Hunter come spend the night with Blake so Hannah could just have time with her "sister" for her birthday. Thanks Kylie and Mrs. Allison for making Hannah's party great!

ready or not

Kindergarten is coming! I found all of these great shirts and shorts for Hunter at Encores Consignment tonight. I also found him some school pants. He is so excited that he will get to come to A.Z. Kelley with Hannah and I. I am excited too, but also sad that he is already old enough for Kindergarten.

Today I skipped the gym and went for a run/walk with Hannah. She is doing the Kids Rock Marathon again this year and wants to get her 25 miles finished. We have completed 5 miles already. I love getting to spend time with her running. (I am thankful that she gets to run most of her miles in PE with our awesome PE teachers.)

Jump Rope for Heart

 Hannah goes to specials while I have lunch so I was able to go in and see her jump for a few minutes. She loves to jump rope and do jump bands.
She was happy to get another jump rope and three duck key chains. She earned the key chains by raising money. Thanks everyone who donated to help her raise money. She raised over $200!

our girly, girl

Hannah came in my room while I was getting ready and said, "Mom, I didn't have any earrings to match this outfit so I made some." They matched and looked great. Way to be resourceful with those rainbow loom bands.

Happy Valentine's Day!

 Our sweet Hannah! I wrote a heart each day Feb. 1-14 that told something I love about her. She did not notice until day 3-4 but then would let me know if I was getting behind. I got the idea from Angela Thomas' book 52 Things Kids Need from a Mom. I think it will be a new tradition.

Our little Chick Magnet!
 He would run and get Hannah to come read this heart to him. I think he has them all memorized now.

I hope you all had a great Valentine's Day and were able to spend it with people you love. We had a nice evening at home. We had heart shaped pizza for dinner, watched a movie as a family and had heart shaped brownies for dessert. It was a wonderful family Valentine's!

I have the best job ever

I have always enjoyed teaching, but this year I can truly say that I love going to work everyday. Look at these sweet faces. They are just two of the bright spots in my day at school.

working hard

I wanted Hunter to just write his name on all his cards and let me write his friends names. He was not going for that. He had to do it all. He did a great job. Hannah needed no help at all form us.

my heart is happy

 Hannah and I had a little jump rope contest this afternoon. It was fun, but boy jumping rope is hard work. She said we were just practicing for Jump Rope for Heart.

 Oh, how I love to see them being sweet to each other.
Perfect ending to a GREAT day! Hope you all had a great Saturday!
