Zoo field trip


I am always thankful that I get to stay home with my kids. But, I have been extra thankful that I am able to attend all of Hudson's field trips and school activities. In early May, we went to the zoo.  I was still early in the pregnancy and thankfully feeling good!
Sweet Hud:
 The whole class:



They were checking out some bug they found:


In the gorilla house:


Checking out the squirting bug:


They were very impressed but the huge spider:

The big news....

The big news is that baby #3 is on the way!!!  This has been a culmination of a really hard year, that I have zero desire to re-live, but it resulted in joyous news. We are thrilled to be welcoming a new blessing to our lives and the kids are beyond excited!

Kindergarten Graduation

And just like that we were at Kindergarten graduation. Hudson's teacher promised she would make us cry...and she delivered.

The graduates waiting to come in:

Harper was enthralled watching Bubba and all HER friends graduate:


Sweet boy:












Each child got to tell their favorite thing they learned about in Kinder (Hudson's was about birds):

'
Mrs. W. told what each child's name meant and then listed a few of their favorite things:








I cannot begin to express how thankful I am for the wonderful year Hudson had.  He was blessed with a fantastic teacher who loved him as much as he loved her. He made wonderful friends and learned so much.  It was such a joy to watch him grow and learn this year!!

This and That

This girl has my heart:


This made me laugh (and didn't last long):


These two did great at the dentist and got great reports!



Team Ball!

Hud received the team ball at one of the May games.  He was so proud and we (especially little sister) are so proud of him!!

Career Week!

Hudson's teacher had career week at school.  A lot of the parents took time to go up to school and talk to the kids about their various jobs.  Hudson was thrilled that Trent was one of them and Trent really enjoyed it as well!!

On the final day, the kids were supposed to dress like what they wanted to be when they grow up. Of course, Hudson had to go as a fireman, complete with his own Dalmatian:


Great Wolf Lodge!

We made our annual trip to GWL and surprised the kids.  To make it even more fun, we were meeting some great friends there as well!




Ready to go!


Our sweet friends:




Hudson has yet to meet a character he doesn't love (Harper on the other hand...)



We had a fun dinner (sweet Griffin giving Harps hugs):





Slumber party:



Ready for day 2!









This is always a sign of a good time had by all:

Until next time GWL!
