tatum's little dress

My Mom's older sister Sandy made this cute little dress for Tatum. (actually she made two).
Tatum put it on the other night and was dancing around like a princess with her wand.
It's pink with puppies and kitties on it.

the newest member of the family

The cat, of one of Josh's students, gave birth to kittens. Van wanted a kitten. We got one!
Meet Milo. :)

Van's art work

Every year, the kids school has an art show. The kids get to pick the piece of artwork that they want to display. They keep lots of their artwork at school till they pick the one for the show. Van just brought the rest of his artwork home. Here it is. I can't wait to see what he has chosen for the show!

Van was also a contest winner of the Earth Day contest!

I plan on getting a pic of his artwork today ;)

kid school updates...

there are lots and lots of updates with the kiddos.....

Petey had  to write a story using all his spelling words....he wrote a story about me and drew a picture to go with it.
here it is.....
the story says......

It's my new day. I went to the store with Mom. I don't want to go to the bay. May I hug you? I like Spring flowers. I like to say that Mommy is the best. I don't like when she is away. I like mommy anyway. Everyday is good. After school I like that Mom picks me up. I like when Mommy stays home. Now Mom is playing the wii with me.

the picture is of Petey and I playing the wii.

Petey hat to make something out of trash...or recycled materials is an orange truck.

Ollie's snowman he made at school.

another snowman he made at school.....he came home on day and told me he made a snowman, I asked his teacher the next day and she said no snowman.....however when he brought this paper home it had a note posted on it saying this is Ollie's snowman. :)

Van got Super Citizen for the month of February for Integrity.

Petey brought this home to me from school one day...." a card for you Mom"

It says " I love you, frum petey"

Petey was super citizen for the month of march for Bravery.

more art work from Ollie. 
He is so proud of the fact that he can write his name he wrote "Ollie" all over my bathroom floor with my eyeliner pencil the other day! :)

Thought that you might like to see Spring pictures....

and last but not least......

Petey's Spring Program... (Yes, it was on March 23)

" Sound of Music"

The theme was Stars of Broadway.

The first grade sand Mary Poppins songs.
Petey's class sang these are a few of my favorite things.
Petey had a speaking part and he did a great job! 
He was singing and dancing he heart out.
