Capri turns 4

Capri choose chicken legs, sweet potatoes, green beans, and monkey bread for her 4th birthday! It has been such joy to teach her preschool this year! I have a passion for teaching preschool! I got to use all the projects and curriculum I made when I was teaching on my kid! It was a really cool experience. For her pre-kinder year she will attend the preschool where I worked. I have requested my favorite teachers! Prayerfully she gets one of them! I think her sass has calmed down a bit. She has a compassion about her I yearn for! She is always the one to remind me of the rules and be sure everybody is following them. She loves to be dressed up and go play in the mud with Jeremy, the perfect combination, if you ask me!

Capri's 4 acts of kindness:

1. Make Jeremy's bed for him one morning.

2. Make a bag of diapers and wipes to put at a public restroom changing table.

3. give a gift to someone who has helped us. She choose the receptionist at the Time Share. 

4. Make cookies for Daddy's station.

Jeremy turns 6

Jeremy choose Ribs, macaroni and cheese and broccoli to celebrate his 6th birthday!
In all my years dreaming of being a mommy... it was always to 5 and under! I feel like infants through kindergarten is my niche... We are stepping into uncharted territory! I am ready to take the bull by he horns (the literacy of that phrase scares me a little) and help my little boy grow into a man after God's heart! His Daddy is a great example of a family man. Jeremy is always by his side, morning the law, fixing the chicken coop, cooking, playing sports, etc. His memory amazes us. He memorized over 30 Bible verses for Awana this year.
Bobby was working on his actual birthday, so we went to the station to have Chick-Fil-A... Bobby bought silly string, invited his partner's kids and ambushed Jeremy! It was epic! They also got donuts for dessert!

Jeremy's 6 Acts of Kindness:

1. Take coffee and donuts to Grandpa's work site.

2. Make paper airplanes for Dillon and Drew

3. A surprise he wouldn't tell me about..... It was a paper that said "I <3 <3 <3 <3 Mom" 4 hearts for love!! SO sweet!

4. Give oranges to the neighbors. Didn't get a photo :(

5. Send dessert to a family at a restaurant. Red Robbin

6. Make lemonade and banana bread for our next door neighbor, Marlene.

Heidi-Rae turns 2

We had a little family dinner at the house to celebrate! I didn't get any photos from the dinner! GAH!!
But here are some cute ones from the friend Bday party at Romp-O-Rama!

This little girl gives us a run for our money. She is witty, sassy, and knows how to play her audience. She can emotionally read people, it's pretty impressive. Because of that, she is quite concerned if she thinks you are hurt, mad,  sad, angry, etc. She picks up on it and asks how she can help.  We are quite impressed by her vocabulary and understanding of situations. She is a Mama's girl all around, it makes my heart sing! Next year, we will start acts of kindness on her birthday!
