Week One

Josh has survived week one home with the kids this summer.
Something tells me they are going to have some fun this summer.


Sleeping in the Rain

Tonight is the annual parks department Family camp out.
Just Emmit and I this year.
I will cherish my night with Emmit and remember the excitement to be sleeping in a tent just the two if us!

It's officially raining on us and I think my tent is leaking. Emmit is sound asleep next to me and sleeping hard.
It's a wonderful sound!



Since Josh has been a teacher in A town we have woken up to toilet paper, eggs, forks, paint ball splats on our house and this morning to my personal favorite pink flamingos!

Oh to be young again.
I tell Josh that this is really a compliment that the kids think you are cool.


Calling All Superheros

Somebody is getting ready for the party of the year tomorrow..


The Graduate

 Today Grace officially graduated from Whitney pre school and to start her special day off right her daddy snuck out the house early this morning and delivered a special breakfast for his little girl.
 Striking a pose for the camera before heading off to school.
 At times, yes they really do love each other.
 Nothing beats a bunch of 5 year olds screaming, I mean singing songs.
 Not sure what she is doing, but don't ever change.
 Each kid had a special something said about them before receiving their certificate. This is what the teachers said about Grace.
"Grace gives great big good morning hugs, loves cowboys boots, can really hula hoop, likes to dress up and when she grows up she wants to be a Veterinarian".
I know it's only pre school, but seriously my eyes filled with water when they spoke of her.

 Room 6
Those poor teachers. I hope they both get the R & R that they deserve this summer.

 Grace will always remember Miss Louise.
 Miss Jodie has no idea what she has coming next year with Emmit heading her way:)
 Enjoying some swing time with friends before we all parted our seperate ways for the summer. Who are we kidding, this is a small town. chances are we will see this kid tomrrow.
Grace is really going to miss being in school next year with these two boys. All three have been in class for the last two years together.
Both Connor and Jack have a thing for Grace and if she had it her way she would have also taking her shirt off today.

That's a wrap.

Grace you are a Mt. Erie Mustang now girl!


What A Year

As I tuck you into bed tonight we will talk of all the things you have done this year in pre school, as tomorrow is you last day of school.
You have learned so much.
You have made many good friends and memories that will last a lifetime.
Everyday of school this year you were excited to go and learn.
When I ask you what you liked most about pre school you told me:

Hugging your teachers
Snack Time &
Playing with your friends

You tell me that you are going to miss pre school, but that you are ready to go across the street. Which means that you are ready for elementary school.

Grace has made us proud in many ways, but we are most proud of how she treats others and how caring she is towards her teachers and friends.

A special thank you to Miss Louise and Miss Jodie for being amazing teachers to our little Grace. All of the photos in this post were taking by her teachers and we are forever grateful to have them.


Grace and Emmit are the luckiest to have such a dad like you.
You set the bar high and we all love you like crazy.
Happy Fathers Day!
