"I won't grow up.
Not a penny will I pinch.
I will never grow a mustache,
Or a fraction of an inch.
'Cause growing up is awfuller
Than all the awful things that ever were.
I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up!"
|Evidence that they truly are not ready to grow up, which is fine by me!|

|We don't get many family pics in....so here is one!|
My parents came to visit the end of May for Kai and Julia's 5th birthday party. We decided to have a casual "Ice Cream Social" at the neighborhood clubhouse and end with swimming. There was a lot of other fun games that I had prepared for, but nothing ever goes quite as planned! I am promising myself not to mess with birthday parties next year. Maybe we could do a fun family adventure instead (one that does not include hours of wasted time on planning)! Do you think they will notice? ha!

|Uncle Zach came for a visit also. Love him!|
|I love this Mother's Day card the preschool teachers made ;)|
Julia "graduated" preschool, although she will graduate again next year! After a lot of prayer we have decided to enroll the twins in a year of Pre-K and delay their start to Kindergarten by a year. They just turned 5 in May (original due date was end of July), and we really believe another year of preschool and time at home will benefit them both.

Kai flourished in the PPCD (preschool program for kids with disabilities) preschool through the public school this past year. He loved his friends, teachers, and mommy loved that he was receiving speech, physical, and occupational therapy during the half day program. We will miss his buddies and teachers greatly next year. Since Kai turned 5 in May, he no longer is eligible for this service. He will join Julia & Isaac at the church preschool for a year of Pre-K in the fall. The public school will tell us in September if there is enough funds for him to continue his speech therapy sessions at the school as a drop-in service.

Here's the comparison to the first day of school. They actually don't look very different to me. Maybe it's true..."They won't grow up!"

Well, there's the recap of Spring! I will have to wait until we get another free moment to update on Summer. We finally are under contract on our house after being on the market for almost 6 months! Our new house won't be completed until next Spring. There is a lot to do in the next few months including finding a rental house and packing everything up. I better get busy.... :)
