a 1st grade hat parade


First grade has been a lot of fun so far…..and a lot of projects :)  This week the kids had a hat parade. Now, if you know Luke, you know that he had GRAND ideas about what he wanted his hat to look like.  Picture exploding rockets, lights, dueling light sabers….just about as over the top as you can get.  Soooo, I told John since I do nightly homework with Luke, this bad boy would be his project.  :)IMG_6028-2

and Luke in his LEGO hat. :) Now, this project was due on a Monday.  By Sunday afternoon John and Luke did not have any hats started.  So, we decided to go with a hat that looked like a LEGO.  After hot gluing the thing together (and it was a sturdy little hat!) we got to school the next day and poor Luke smashed the hat in the car door.  Luckily, his teacher came to the rescue with more hot glue :)  and then he added stickers all over the place. :)  IMG_6034-2

Lazy Sundays…

Sundays are one of my favorite days of the week….we never have big plans, the boys love watching football…and my favorite, lots of family time :)


  Drew is determined to be like the “big” neighborhood boys and ride a two-wheeler (we are still working on it)

The HEART award


Luke received an award at school a few weeks ago.  Of course Momo made it for the big event.  As you can tell from Drew’s lovely expression, it was hot.  But doesn’t Charlotte look cute? :)


Getting the award for Harmony.  So proud of my boy.IMG_5936


His teacher said that he was the peacemaker in the class and a friend to all. IMG_5938

He was thrilled (don’t let the picture fool you)IMG_5942

hating on the heat….IMG_5945


and Mr. Shaw getting silly stringed completely trumped his award in his mind.  This was the highlight for Luke :)IMG_5954

Little man, you make us so proud.  IMG_5956

Have you ever seen a purple cow?


First grade is off to a great start.  One of the first big events was a purple cow party.  The kiddos learned a poem and then celebrated with purple cow floats.




Doesn’t it look yummy?? :)
