School, Sleep, & Song

Last week our baby girl started preschool! She goes 3 days a week and loves it. Here she is ready for her first day.


I swear each time she goes it's the fastest 2 hours and 45 minutes of my life! Then when I pick her up I spend about that amount of time trying to get her to tell me what she did at school.

We're into the final month of the deployment (YEA!) and we've been working hard at staying busy. We made a couple of trips to Boise over the long weekend and both times the kids fell asleep on the drive home. I love seeing their sweet (and dirty) faces sleeping in the rear view mirror.





I think I love them a little more when they're asleep...is that wrong??

To wrap things up, I'll leave you with a stirring rendition of "Sing the Rainbow" starring Alexandra Kate...

So happy to hear that Alex is LOVING school! And even happier to hear that it's getting close to reunion time :) Keep us posted!

That song video was too precious! It inspired me to try to teach Collin a song...ANY song. We're working on, "If you're happy and you know it," so he can clap, etc. It's not going well.....

Loved the sweet song by Alex =) And babies are always so cute when they are sleeping =) We hope to see you all soon! I went by the local health food store and I think we'd be all set for food for Derek! Miss you guys

Now if we all could learn the days of the week song! She's good!

I had to go back and tell you that that song has been in my head for a week now! I had to play it for Bryon because he thought I had made up a song. He said, "No one can sing a rainbow, that can't be a song."
