We had the Girl Scout end of the year party today at our pool. The girls received their awards for the year and Talia bridged to the Ambassador level.
The boys have been taking Karate for the past few months. Last week they tested for their yellow belts and today was the promotion ceremony. In addition to their yellow belts, they received a medal for perfect attendance.
Everyone but Talia got out of school for the summer today. Talia’s last day is Friday. The kids have all had a great year and are looking forward to a summer filled with fun. We plan to do a lot of swimming in our pool, going to the beach frequently and will have a camping adventure in the Grand Canyon. Summer is my favorite time of the year and I think it is the kids’ favorite time as well.
Falyn’s last day of preschool was today. She is super excited to be going to kindergarten next year, but a bit sad to be leaving the preschool she has attended for the last three years. One of her friends will be going to the same school as her next year and a few others will be on her soccer team or in cheer with her. That will help make the transition next fall a bit easier.

Dan took Talia, Kayli, Aidan, Jared and Riley out to Rocstock yesterday. The met up with some friends there had a great time launch rockets and watching larger rockets being launched. They had planned to stay the night, but it got too windy, so they came home. Here’s some pictures of the fun:
Aidan’s class has been learning the recorder for the last few months. Today they performed a concert. They all did an amazing job. It was hard to believe they had only been playing for a few months.
Falyn had her first dance recital today. She has been taking a “Combo Fusion” class at Studio Fusion since last September. She learns ballet, jazz, tap and some acrobatics in the class. She loves the class and absolutely loved the recital. This is one kid that loves being on stage and performing in front of an audience. She did most of the routine correctly and in the parts where she was doing the wrong steps, other kids followed along with what she was doing instead of doing the choreographed steps. She can’t wait for the next recital.
Falyn had a great time at her second cheer competition. He team did great, coming in 2nd place which earned them silver medals. Falyn said that now all she needs is a 3rd place to complete her medal collection (they won 1st place last time),
I have never seen a kid so excited to loose her tooth. She has been showing everyone she meets her missing tooth.
