HJ has officially graduated preschool!

This past year has been amazing.  HJ has grown and learned so much.  And I don’t know if we just got lucky, or if this is what I should expect of teachers, but his teachers were amazing.  HJ absolutely ADORES the women that taught him preschool, and was so sad to tell them goodbye.

Luckily, he will just be down the hall next year and can stop by and say “hi”.

On May 21st, HJ had his official graduation ceremony.  Families and friends were in seats, as the class walked in to the graduation march.  The students lined up, and sang us some cute songs (that I was lucky enough to hear being practiced all week).

Between songs, we got to hear what each child wants to be when they grow up.  HJ proudly announced, “A vet!”, which has progressed from his giraffe and dinosaur trainer.  They received their diplomas, and we celebrated with cookies and juice.

HJ also got to pick where the family went for dinner.  Naturally, he picked Buffalo Wild Wings.

The next day, was his last day of school, and he was excited to celebrate with his friends and teachers.  We also celebrated by heading to Des Moines for the night, and hit up the zoo!

Hard to believe my sweet, baby boy is a kindergartener.

This amazing summer weather is absolutely killing my housekeeping.  Except for sleeping, we have been spending hardly any time inside.  All the work has been spent mowing, gardening, potting, and enjoying the sun.  Which means, the house is messy.  It is driving me crazy.  According to the weather, it should be chilly this weekend, so I am hoping to get caught up.  You know, between going away dinners, wedding showers, etc.

HJ had his graduation last week.  I will share about it next week, but I just can’t get over the fact I have a kindergartener.

This coming week, I have 3 wine parties in a row.  I am excited, but I know it is going to make the week just fly by!

I don’t understand how dogs shed so much.  I brushed Ty out, and it just kept coming and coming.  You would think you would notice thinning or a bald spot.

Speaking of hair, I got blonde highlights for summer this week.  But, I don’t love them as much as I thought.  I don’t know if I am not used to it, or if I should have had more then one shade put in?

Tomorrow night, I am going out to dinner with a friend who is moving away soon.  We both moved to Cedar Falls at the same time, and I am really sad to see her and her family leave.

Whenever I go for a run/walk/bike-ride, we go by this cute stone house.  I think it is just beautiful, and always tell myself that if I ever can buy that house I will.  On our bike-ride today, guess what house has a for sale sign?  I am super bummed, because I so wish I could live in such a cute place.  And on top of that, I looked it up online, and the inside is just as cute.  Someday.
