Graduation Day!!

Today is the day.. Jalen graduated from preschool. He did a fabulous job at his graduation and had a great year. Jalen was super excited that Grandpa, Oma, Opa, Li, Brooklyn, Ki, AJ, Ry, and Auntie Kia was able to come to his graduation. He did all of the songs perfectly and I have to say he had the best slideshow picture. Everyone loved his crazy baby hair.. I can't believe how big my baby is and it's hard to believe that next year he'll be in Pre-K. We are very blessed.. Jalen will be going to a Pre-K program at his school now, not Kindergarten. He is excited to stay at his school for one more year.

Time Flies...

Where does time go? Why is Brooklyn already crawling...?!?


We've been eagerly waiting for the pools to open and finally, they are starting to open up. We've already gone two days. Jalen loves it and has no fear. He has to stay in his vest. We've already had one jump in without it and it won't happen again ;) Ryan takes after his big cousin and has absolutely no fear what so ever. It's going to be one fun summer, not sure about relaxing, but fun!

I feel like I just wrote that we were starting soccer and now we are finishing! Jalen had a great time playing soccer this spring season. It's a good thing we aren't doing a summer league because he would probably faint from the heat! He's a little unprepared for summer right now (even though we had a great time at the pool today). I have to say he did a fantastic job for his first time in a sport and I loved cheering him on. I am thankful to everyone who made it out to see him play, he loves having everyone cheer for him. We are all so blessed.

Happy Birthday, Ki!

There is something about sisters that no one can explain. I have to say that I am truly blessed with two amazing sisters that mean more to me than words can describe. They both are amazing people with huge hearts that would do anything for anyone. They both have helped me tremendously throughout my life from taking me to play with them (even though they didn't want to) when we were little to helping me with anything I needed with Jalen! Without either of them, I wouldn't be where I am today and I thank God for them each and every day... I love you both!

but, today, one of them is a year older and wiser...

Happy 30th Birthday, Jessica (Ki)!
When I look back to the days growing up, I laugh. I remember the days when we would fight like cats and you would beat the crap of me and Lindsay, especially with your nails, until the day Lindsay and I learned we could team up on you and get you back! To this day, you still have the strength to fight anything that comes your way.. You are an amazing lady with unbelievable strength and that is one of the million things that I admire you for. Thank you for being such an amazing sister and Aunt. I hope you have an amazing day and know that we love you very much!!

Strawberry Pickin'..

We went to get some strawberries from a farm up from my Dad's house with no intention of picking until Jalen realized you could go in the fields and pick.. Jalen had a blast doing it. We went to the Farmer's Market today and Jalen cried once we got there because he thought he was going to pick strawberries again, but he quickly cheered up when he saw they had blueberries!!

Mother's Day

Tomorrow might be deemed the holiday for all of the Moms, but every day I live Mother's Day. Every day I wake up to the best little boy ever saying my name, smiling, and being a little cuddle bug. I am living my dream. I am thankful that every day I am a Mother and I don't need a special holiday to realize how blessed I am...
