Phillip Graduates from Bountiful High! (pre-school)

I can't believe that Phillip has graduated from Bountiful High! Well, Bountiful High Pre-School. He'll wear the red gown again in what ... hmm... 13 years ... Class of 2024! I'm sure the time will continue to fly by. It seems like yesterday that he was just a little baby. Phillip has been going to the pre-school since I went back to work in 2007. Below is a picture that they took of him for a Mother's Day card. He's so little!

I can't say enough good things about the pre-school. The students and teachers go out of their way to make the little kids feel special and loved. The kids do a lot of fun crafts and activities .. I don't know how the teachers pull it off! The kids won't be going next year because I have cut back working to the point where it doesn't make sense to keep them enrolled. I will really miss everyone there!

Here is the recap of the end-of-year celebration!

Spotlight on the graduating class from the pre-school. They each got to wear a gown, cap and got an engraved trophy.

Proud mom of her new graduate:

Bountiful High Triathlon: Each kid tossed a balloon to their parent (swimming) rode their bike around the track one lap, then ran one lap around the track. This has been a great tradition. Here is the triathlon with Amelia in my stomach, Lily in the stroller, and Phillip at 3 1/2 years old. Lily enjoyed doing it on her own this year. She was pretty good on the trike! Phillip completed the race after he "got his strength back."

Go Team!
Thank you Bountiful High for a great year!

Lay-over in Bountiful

Suz raiding Pete's Grocery store in our storage room. Pudding anyone?

Suz was in Utah this weekend for the Ogden marathon. YAY Suz! I got to hang out with her today prior to her flight back home to Phoenix. Luckily she came after I had a get-together featuring some fun 'mock-tails'. We made virgin lava flow drinks. It's basically a margarita and pina colada mixed together. Here's a recipe. I didn't put in any rum. It was a great blarbing Sunday.

Quote of the day. Phillip walked up to me with a very serious face and said, "I'm smarter than you." I said, "you probably are." He said, "Yeah, because I have a fat brain and you have a skinny brain, so I am smarter." Suz asked Phillip if she was smarter. He paused for a moment and said, "You brain is skinnier, so I'm smarter."

Spring Baseball

We had a great T-ball game today! It was 70 degrees, sunny, and breezy! Phillip has been having fun this second year of T-ball. He would get upset that some of the boys would field more balls. Phillip got a chance to play pitcher for an inning. He loved chasing for the ball ... even if one of his team members already got the ball. I'm a fair-weather-sport-watcher .. so it was nice to cheer on Phillip and enjoy the nice weather.
