Logan is 4!!!

This year Logan decided he wanted a TMNT birthday.  He had a blast with all his best buddies and we had a blast watching him have so much fun.  I can't believe my baby bear is growing up so fast.

Faith, Trust, and...a pixie cut!

Meg couldn't stand her long hair and I couldn't stand how she's let it hang in her face and wouldn't keep it tied back, so when Kyle got home from Iowa we took her to SHAG for a pixie cut.  I was really nervous about how short that would be, but as the locks came off the smile got bigger.  When we got home afterward I put a pretty headband on her head and she got her first really good look at herself in the mirror.  Do you think she liked it?

Family Visit 2014

Grandma and Grandpa Baird and Aunt Irene came to visit us over the 4th of July weekend!  We had so much fun taking them around our fun little city, going to StonyCreek and playing at the lake, and just hanging out and having fun together playing dominoes and making doll furniture.  We had our own little bbq and fireworks show for the 4th of July and just enjoyed being together.

Jumping into Summer with a SPLASH!

We put the kids in swim lessons at the YMCA this summer and they LOVE it.  I have so much fun watching them learn and splash and have a great time with the other kids.

Last Day of Kindergarten!

Megan graduated from Kindergarten today.  Her teacher put the paper "cap" on her head and a mom of one of her classmates gave each of the kids a small bouquet of flowers!  It was such a surreal feeling to think we've been here in Michigan a little over a year now and to think of all she's learned and accomplished and that now it is over and she'll be in 1st grade this Fall!  So proud of my little girl who made so many great friends and developed a passion for learning and reading.  

 Meg had a wonderful teacher, Ms. Leestma, and I made her this cute utility apron as an appreciation gift that she can wear in the classroom or in the garden or whatever.  We filled the pockets with all kinds of goodies and supplies for her for next year. We hope she likes it!
