Little Man's Last Day in his 3 year old preschool class

Little Man's last day in his 3 year old preschool class was today.

This year has literally flown by. His teacher, Mrs. Carson, has been wonderful. She really understood Little Man and his "class clown" type personality and has really helped his to blossom this year. We had some discipline issues at the beginning of the year and a little throughout the year but overall he's had a fantastic year.

Right now we're debating about what kind of schedule we want for him for next year. We've got him registered in the 3 day a week program but are debating about moving him up to a 5 day a week program. I'm waffling on which would be better for him as this next year will be his last in the preschool program. At this moment I'm thinking that he'd be best to stay in the 3 day a week program. He loves being home with me (and I love having him to myself two days a week) and this will be his last year that he'll ever be able to be young, carefree, and crazy at home with me.

We want to say a big Thank You to Little Man's preschool. This was our first year there and it is a wonderful program with excellent, caring teachers. I loved being the room mom for Little Man's class and we are so happy that we found this preschool and look forward to his class and teacher next year.

Welcome to summer, Little Man :)

Here is Little Man at his End of the Year "God Bless America" program:

And here he is getting his end of the year award - "Deep Thinker". His teacher says that he comes out with some of the most profound observations about random things and that he really loves to listen when she reads a book and he usually answers most of the questions about the story when she's done reading.

I also find it extremely ironic that when Mrs. Carson called him up , Little Man ran over to her and landed a monkey type cartwheel in front of her to accept the award for "Deep Thinker". Classic Little Man!

Little Miss's Kindergarten class put on a production of Bugs tonight! It was completely adorable!

We took Little Miss up to school around 6:15pm so that she could get her costume on and get ready for the play. The kiddos then went to the music room and we headed to the cafeteria to get a seat. My parents, Ryan's parents, and my sister were able to come tonight.

The play lasted about 35 minutes. There was a lot of singing, a bit of dancing, and most of the kids got to deliver a line or two.

Little Miss has been practicing her lines for months.

"You may be wondering what we are dressed up with antennas and wings. Mostly we're bugs, some spiders, and ants and other squirmy things"

She did a wonderful job delivering the lines and doing the motions to all of the songs.

Little Miss's First Piano Recital

Music's in my soul
I can hear it every day and every night
It's the one thing on my mind
Music's got control
And I'm never letting go, no, no
I just wanna play my music
~ Play My Music by the Jonas Brothers

Little Miss had her first piano recital today :) Nana, G, Meme, Ted, Vicki, Ryan, Little Man, and I were all there to cheer her on!

She put on her cute dress, tights, and shoes this morning and we headed out to the church for her recital. She played "Fuzzy Wuzzy" and "Merrily We Roll Along" by memory. She was a little nervous beforehand so Ryan and I gave her a special rock that she could take up to the piano with her. It helped :)

After the recital her piano teacher handed out trophies (and Nana, Meme, and I all brought her some flowers) and then the kiddos headed to the next room for cake and lemonade.
