The theme was Under The Sea. These little First graders did an awesome job of entertaining the audience. Charlie danced, sang, played, and performed her heart out for us! Afterwards we felt it was only fitting to go for ice cream.

Saturday after work we decorated Easter eggs with the kids (we haven't done this in the last two years so we had extra kits on hand). I was tired, emotionally trained, and not feeling good at all but I bucked up, took a shower, and put my best self forward. We had fun watching how each one decorated their eggs. My artist,Valerie, chose actual paint. Ethan chose the color dyes, and Charlie chose to color hers with marker so she could have more control over what they looked like. I brought down the hair dryer and used dye colors and shrinky wraps, and Mark used a combo of dyes and markers. My favorite was my bunny, and the egg Mark made for me, the Ian Somerhalder Vamp Egg. Valerie's were all soccer related, as were Ethan's! Charlie did some copying and then some with pretty flowers on them. We colored 30 eggs which turned out to be a ton of fun! I knew at that point of being done thatI wasn't going to make it into work. My large pea salad and the drinks I had gone to the store for was our Easter Supper;)

I love being an Auntie to this little girl. From the moment my eyes met hers I knew that I would always want to be there for her. Right now it's easy. To support her I just need to be present for her. She lights up when I come into a room, gives me sweet smiles, and holds my hand. I was excited to go to her preschool and watch her present her body systems project. Rocking H was really rocking that day with kids who were excited to sing and show their parents what they learned. Her body systems project was a 3rd grade project that all the kids completed! The details on each body systems was complete all the way down to the anus (which the kids actually said and sung about). Mrs Susan is my kind if gal. We have never given our kids false names for their body parts! It was so much fun listening to these kids know more than most adults.
