Happy Mother's Day to ME!!!

I know this is a little late, but for mother's day my only wish was to get family pictures.  Well not just family pictures, family pictures with no complaining.  No complaining about what I made wanted them to wear, or what I did to their hair, or face or anything.  This group knows me a little, and they know I can get a tiny bit carried away when it comes to family pictures but let me tell you they delivered!  I am very happy with the results, even if as Aiden said several times through a clenched teeth smile it was "only for mother's day".

P.S. I just learned how to make photo collages ( I know I'm a little behind on the times...don't judge!)  so I may have gone a little overboard, but I'm okay with it:)

Talent Show

I am always impressed when my kids decide they want to get up in front of a group of people to perform.  That isn't the sort of thing I myself enjoy so I'm really glad when they can break out of their comfort zone.  Aiden tried out for the talent show with an act of singing "Home Means Nevada" while hula hooping.  He made it!  Buuuut there were two other hula hooping acts and in an effort to get as many kids in the show as she could, the teacher combined his hula-ing with theirs.  He was a little downhearted that he wouldn't get to do it on his own or sing his song but the show must go on.  (There is a video but blogger isn't letting it upload. I'll keep working on it)

Pioneer Hoe Down

Part of the fourth grade curriculum is studying Nevada history.  Aiden's school had a hoe down to celebrate history and I got to help.  I didn't get many pictures because I was stationed at the steer roping station the whole time but it was fun to watch the kids and they had a fantastic time!
