Ella's first tooth {lost}

Ella's tooth has been wiggly for over a month. It was barely hanging on. So like a good Mom I suggested we "shoot" it out like we saw on you tube. She agreed and tried to shoot it herself but kept missing. I took a shot and out it came! And bonus points for the Nerf being the bad guy! Tho she said it didn't hurt at all. 
Our tooth fairy, Flossie, paid her visit and left three gold coins! Ella was SO excited!!

Awana awards

It's time for the end of the year Awana ceremony at church. Ella has looked forward to Awana every single week. She loves memorizing verses and earning jewels. This year she memorized the books of the New Testament in order and a passage in Psalms. I can't wait to see what she does next year. 

Wyatt only went a few times all year but recently got excited about it again. I think the Grand Prix race made him want to go back. Hopefully he will be all in this fall.

Pink. Hot pink, please.

Ella has complained for awhile that her room is white (it's actually a pale pink). We told her we would repaint after Kindergarten. She requested lime green, a favorite color of some of her friends. I told her we would consider it if she could stick to a color choice all school year long. A few weeks later she requested hot pink and stuck to her choice all year. So Friday we surprised her with a new pinker room when she got home! It's more of a bubble gum pink but she was thrilled.
Earlier in the week I also surprised her with new sheets to replace the "baby ballerinas" she has had since day one. She absolutely hated those sheets. It's hard to say which she was more thrilled with.

Field trip time {2nd grade}

Second grade hasn't taken many outside-of-school field trips this year.  But this month he finally got one. And it was to the Nature Center. The perfect place for Wilson! Mimi was nice enough to go with him so I could go on Ella's Mother's Day picnic.
