Big man's movin up to first grade!

My not so little, little boy is moving on to first grade. This is Brandon at his kindergarten graduation with his teacher Mrs. Townsley and the principal Mr. Roppe. Brandon did soooo well this year. He was a great help to his teachers and excelled in all subjects. Brandon was even placed in the highest reading group. He was the only boy in this group. It was just Brandon and the girls the whole year. His teacher expressed how smart he was and if he continues on the path he is on she would recommend him being tested for the discovery program (like the old school gate program) Way to go Brandon! We are so proud of you.

Take Me Back!

Spencer and I were fortunate enough to be able to go on an awesome vacation to the Caribbean at the beginning of May. We chose to go to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. It was a great place to go on vacation. I only wish I could have stayed longer then the week we were there. I guess though that I had to come back and be a mom again at some point.

This was the view from the balcony of our room. This resort had awesome pools and an awesome beach. We were able to relax and enjoy ourselves no matter which area we were in .

We also got to go on a couple of tours while we were there. The first one was a catamaran boat ride to an uninhabited inland where we could just veg and enjoy our time together. On our way back from the island they stopped at a sand bar that is in the middle of the ocean where you can pick up star fish and just be able to relax in warm shallow water.
The other tour we went on was to go snorkeling with the sting rays and sharks. This was very cool. The reef that they took us to was filled with fish. Definitely fish I had never seen before.

We enjoyed ourselves to the fullest. Nonstop eating, sun, and yummy tropical drinks. What more could you ask for. I can't wait for the next adventure.
