He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. "

Ending to a Great Year

We ended Austin's 1st full year of pre-school this past week. It really has been a great year. Austin has learned a TON, he grew so much socially and physically, the girls had a lot of quality time while their brother was at school two days a week and it has flown by! We started the week with a Daddy/daughter/Mommy date. We have done this several times and it is always a special time for the girls with Daddy (though this last time was rough. Ainsley just doesn't want to sit right now. She wants to be up and moving. :)

Then Wednesday morning we did a little photo shoot...
...and here is where the "I can't believe how big they have all gotten!" part begins as we look at pictures from Austin's first day of preschool...

Such sweeties!

Best buds!

All 3 on the 1st day...

...and all 3 on the last day. What a difference 9 months makes!

My sweet little boy so excited to start "school".

On this day Austin was up at 4:30 a.m. because he was so excited about his pizza and movie-watching party to end the school year.

Cute pic of Audrey after we dropped her big bro off. Next fall both she and Ainsley will begin this same preschool at First McKinney. Yep, that's right! All 3 will be there on Tuesdays and Thursdays!! What am I going to do??!! I am sure I will figure it out real quick! ;)

After we picked Austin up from school we went to Ben and Jerry's to get ice cream and celebrate the year and SUMMER! I was ready for a change and for things to slow down. I love when we don't have many places we have to be at during the week.

Remember how I said Austin was up at 4:30 a.m. ready to start the day? Well, the ice cream part might have been a little too much. Austin was one tired boy by this time. I was so glad that Andrew could come with us. He was such a sweet husband and daddy to be there to celebrate with us. It's those moments when I know how amazing of a father he really is to our kiddos. Love ya, babe! You are the BEST!!

Our sweet lactose-intolerant girl got to eat a waffle cone, but she didn't complain one bit. :)

Audrey of course loved her strawberry ice cream cone. It was pink!!

We gave Austin a new game for his Leapster hand held video game that he loves. I love it because he is learning while playing!! :)
Austin, we are so proud of you for having a great year in pre-school! You have learned and grown so much this year and Mommy is looking forward to having you at home all summer! Yeah! We love you, son! ~Mommy and Daddy
