Lucy' Wiz Kidz Graduation

First, isn't this such a darling picture of Vivian during the opening prayer?

Now on to the graduate: Lucy's class performed a darling song and dance about colors. Each child received a certificate of completion and I sat their feeling very surreal the whole time.

Here is our beautiful graduate. She is turning into such a lovely young lady.

This sign took my breath away when I first saw it. Wow!

Our little family is growing up. Lucy, you are such a good big sister and I am so thankful you can lead the way.

David's 4th Birthday Party

The stated with being sung to, family gifts and breakfast. He loved the foam swords we got him.
Then we were off to ride the train!!! It was awesome. This little boy was in heaven. They had performers on the train too. The whole family loved it.

So happy to celebrate!

At first he said he wanted a Lightning McQueen cake so I was trying to figure out how to make that, then he switched and wanted a train cake. Above is the finished product. I was pleased with how it turned out.

Opening presents with his friends and cousins.

He was so excited when it was finally time to eat his cake!

Then the kids played in the water and all around the backyard. Such simple pleasures of life.

We also played pin the caboose on the train, but I'm quite certain none of the children really got the full picture of how this game was to be played. It was still fun to watch them anyway. Happy Birthday David!

Daddy's work

Someday I will explain to Lucy the critical difference between a patient and a doctor, but for now it just makes me smile to hear her tell people, "Every Friday we get to visit my Dad for lunch at The State Hospital."

We do get to visit Daddy for lunch on Fridays and we love it. After lunch we run around a bit in the gym (are you in love with Vivian's boots?)

Marc and I like to play horse (I've yet to win).

And the kids like to race from one wall to the next with their Dad. It's a perfectly simple time.
