Mother's Day

I had a really nice mother's day this year.

The kids all brought home these notes from Primary. This one is Isaac's:
I think that last one is supposed to say, "beautiful."

This is Joseph's: he says I look, sound and smell like a "Huoman."

and Kate's: she says I sound and smell like "nothing," I'm not sure which one is better.

The Primary gave the kids this M&M game to play with their mothers. It was fun.

in Kate's class they made a flower out of their traced hand print. It was so cute and even smelled like a flower. She chose purple because she knows I like purple.

I tried to get a close-up

These are the beautiful flowers that Nate gave me. He also gave me an automatic Ice cream maker. We have already used it 3 times!

I love getting flowers!

Nate also made dinner. I bought I turkey way back in November and it has been downstairs in the freezer all this time. He cooked it and it was delicious!

I hope all of you mothers had a nice mother's day too.

Graduation from "friendly preschool"

This year Kate attended two preschools. One with her cousins where my sisters and I take turns teaching and one with some friends in the ward and neighborhood. To not get the two preschools confused she named the one with friends, "friendly preschool."

The last week of April we had our graduation. Kate was feeling shy that day so this is all the kids minus Kate, singing one of the songs they learned.

Ruel, Ellie, Jacob, Bryson, Willis, Mom, Eli and Kate. (She would only be in the picture if I stood with her.) Jacob and Eli were the younger siblings, the class had 5 kids. I think this preschool was a good experience for Kate because she had to go to class by herself. It will be good practice for Kindergarten next year.

the kids being silly.

Donna, Alicia, NiCole, and Shelley, thanks for the fun time!
