Cole's Preschool Graduation Picnic

Cole loved being a student at Panther Preschool.
 At the end of the preschool year, Ms. McCutchen and her aides hold a big breakfast picnic where all the children can sing songs for the parents, eat, play, and say goodbye to their friends and teachers.

 So often Cole is the cutest boy on the planet.
Thank you, Ms. McCutchen!
It's been a really long time since I've had a video short enough or whatever the issue is that would allow me to play a video --but I've got one! Enjoy.

Four

Sometimes all four children get along beautifully and all is right in the world.

 And sometimes Paige dances in her own interpretive style with her thumb in her mouth, wearing only a diaper and clinging to her "gank"-- and all is awesome in the world.


Tessa's Spring Show: Wizard of Oz-- After Dorothy

This year's spring show was a twist on Wizard of Oz. Tessa was a munchkin and a poppy dancer. She has a great time with these shows, and we're grateful for PDT and the wonderful teachers and students there. 
In the dressing room for dress rehearsal:



 Supportive sibbies:
 This year, Jake volunteered as one of the parents in the show. He had a really fun time stepping back onto the stage and helping with the show. He (and I) especially liked that he could share this show with Tessa. But, even when it's for the stage, it feels very odd putting mascara your husband...
 Cole was my date to the show. He and I shared some popcorn and had a lovely time. He especially enjoyed the creepy poppies and the witch.
 Cole brought flowers for Tessa and was so proud of her.
 She's so cute.

Anna came with our friend Dee to see the matinee and the gals went for ice-cream afterward. I love these silly little ladies.

May 3, 2014 Littles

I didn't do the best job taking photos while we were in the apartment. So when I pulled out the camera occasionally, I took a bunch. I put Sadie in the Johnny Jump Up one day and Paige played with us too. We laughed, we cried, we bounced.
