Rogers High School Basketball Camp

Jackson attended a great, very well organized basketball camp at RHS and had a blast!

The last day of camp, parents were invited to watch the kids show off their new skills. Jackson did a great job and seems to really enjoy basketball!

These boys enjoyed having their buddies with them!

Driving Range

Let Summer begin!

Jackson enjoyed time at the range with his Daddy-O and I enjoyed watching the two. I actually hit my own bucket of balls and even managed to take a few pictures.

Jackson did a great job!

1st Day of Summer!

This was Ellee's first day of Summer outfit that she picked out and put on all by herself.
 I think she did a pretty good job, except that it's supposed to hit 80 today!

School's Out for Summer!

Here we are the last day of school!
 The year's seem to be going faster and faster. I'm excited to be going through these milestones with my kiddos, but I just want it to go slower, or freeze in time or sometimes even go back and cuddle them when they were first born. Well, they keep growing regardless and we are extremely proud of them both!

Ellee was so excited for her last day of school.
 {I really think it was for the pizza party she was going to have in her class}

Our famous picture in front of the Immanuel Preschool sign.

My little girl and I after preschool let out.
School's out for Summer for Ellee!
She got out the earliest, June 15. Jackson's last day was June 19 and mine was June 20.
The ice storm we had this winter gave Jackson and I a few more days at the end of the year.

Here is Jackson, the last day of his 1st Grade Year!
He learned soooo much and we are are so proud of him! We were extremely happy with his teacher, Mrs. Hanson. She was always kind, patient, organized and very knowledgeable. She told us that Jackson is quick with his math facts. We are going to miss her! We were also so proud to hear all the sight words Jackson could read. He made it to the 800-900 word list. Way to go Buddy! 

Onto 2nd Grade!!!!
How is this happening so fast?

This is Jackson's school sign that means, quiet scottie dog.

Ellee tackled Jackson the minute he walked out the doors to give him a huge hug. It was as if they hadn't seen eachother for months. They both now understand Summer Vacation!!!

After school, I surprised them and took them to Menchies. It was a really great way to celebrate an end to a fabulous school year!

1st Ballet Recital

~Our Ballerina~

We are so proud of our little dancer!
 She has been going to ballet class one day a week since January and had her performance June 14.
Beautiful Ellee!

She loved getting ready....make-up was her favorite. Now she thinks lip gloss is a must before she leaves the house!

I really love this girl......

......and my Family! 

Ellee did such a great job. She knew most of the moves and what to do when. (I think it really helped that her teacher was on stage doing the routine too.) This was right after when Grandma, Grandpa and all of us went out to greet her and give her flowers.

She felt very special holding those bouquets of flowers!

This is one of my favorite pictures of my sweet Ellee!

Grandpa and Grandma came to watch the little ballerina too!

Jackson didn't want to miss out on a photo-op!

Well done Ellee!
She wants to be in dance that she realized the final outcome. She really had no idea that she was going to class every Monday to learn a routine. The costume and make-up was also a pleasant surprise for her!
She was a little doll!

1st Grade Field Trip

Jackson's 1st Grade Class went on a field trip to the zoo. He had so much fun with some of his friends from class. I also had a great time watching them all together since I volunteered to chaperone.

It rained while we were there....actually poured!
 Luckily we didn't let any rain slow us down!
