Father's Day

We spent the day cleaning out the garage and putting up new shelving, but least I remembered to take a picture this year!

Summer Fun

We've been busy filling out our summer reading logs. This summer has been especially awesome, because now Aidan can read to the other two! And I can't believe all the books that Caitlyn will actually sit through. She will sit through a book of any length, as long as it has pictures. Aidan gets points for reading a book (or multiple points if it's a chapter book), and Alex gets points for listening to a book. It's perfect!

On another note, our good friends, Brad and Jen have moved back to Ohio. They lived right across the street, with their 3-year old daughter, Maren. We miss them so much already, but look forward to our trips to the Cinci area!

Caitlyn's Birthday Party

Caitlyn is two! We met friends at the Children's Museum in the Quad Cities for her birthday. Our good friends live about equal distance, on the Illinois side, so the Quad Cities is a great place for us to meet up. What a great museum it was...they had this awesome outdoor water area that the kids just loved.

No birthday party is complete without a cake, so it made the trip with us.

Kindergarten Graduation

My little Aidan has graduated from Kindergarten. Heritage Christian School put on a wonderful graduation ceremony and reception for the kids. It started with a slideshow presentation of all the kindergarteners, complete with "then and now" pictures.

They recited a couple very long Bible verses that they had worked on memorizing during the school year. They also sang us a few songs.

Aidan was one of four kids that got to introduce a part of the ceremony. He introduced the Attributes of God. They learned an attribute of God, for each of the letters of the alphabet.

He is accepting his "diploma" from the principal, Mr. Annis.

Hugs for Mrs. Vahle.

And a new chapter begins next year. First Grade will be the first time he goes to school 5 days a week. And his little brother will be joining him for 3 of the days!

Aidan can tie his shoes!

It's a start!
