Cowgirl Ba-by!

How beautiful are these pictures! They were taken by my sister (Grey Photography ) Kelli is an amazing photographer. She is building her portfolio so she took Averi and Jayden out for a photo shoot! These are some of the most stunning pictures I have ever seen! But what can I say, they are gorgeous girls; if I do say so myself!

I can't believe the school year is over. It feels like we just had preschool orientation and now I have completed another year. I hope my students finished the year with a love of school and an eagerness to learn more. It never ceases to amaze me how much they can learn in such a short time. I feel so privileged to be there with them as they learn concepts that are the foundation for their future education. I can't tell you how great that feels! Not to mention how much I love them to call me Miss Cristy when I see them at the grocery store! I had so much fun with these kids, it was great to have my own little one, Averi, in the class as well this year. She was such a doll and it was fun to watch her interact with her peers. I am going to miss experiencing that when she is in Kindergarten.
I posted a slide show of our graduation program. My sister, Kelli, and Derek took these pictures, some kids are shown more than others but that is only because of where they were sitting during the program. I have to admit, watching the slide show makes me smile with tears in my eyes.

Kinder Cottage Preschool Graduation

Blessing Day

Macey Anne Shields was blessed on April 27th, 2008, it was a wonderful day. Derek gave such a great blessing. Isn't she gorgous in that dress! My mom bought it for her. The pictures don't do it justice. There is so much detail in the dress it looks like a little wedding dress. My dad just kept saying "it's so fancy". I love fancy! She hated her bonnet so there weren't many pictures of her smiling. Derek wanted me to take the bonnet off but she looked so stinkin' cute I had to keep it on her.

Averi is a graduate!

Isn't she adorable! I can't believe she will be starting Kindergarten, and in a big yellow school bus! What am I to do. Kelli took some great pics of the graduation so I will post a slide show.

Make your own dang quesadilla

So the other day we were having some landscaping work done and I opened the front door to find a Mexican picnic on my porch. (is that PC?) All the landscapers were having lunch on my porch, they even brought their own microwave and plugged it in! I couldn't resist taking a pic of the quesadilla cooking in action.
