Swimming with Ms. Sherry
Summer is here and we are on the go. So far, we have been to the library story time, free movies at Opry Mills, swimming with Ms. Sherry, sleepovers with our neighborhood friend and of course at Karens too. Today we went to Fundom Kids for the first time. It is in Joelton, TN which is only about 15-20 minutes away. It is a renovated skating rink with lots and I do mean lots of fun stuff for the kids to do. There are jumpys, tricycles and cars, dressup areas, and centers to play in such as a kitchen, a classroom a firestation and.. there is a cool castle that the kids can climb in and slide down. Anyway, lots of fun for only $6 and a McDonald's across the street for lunch afterwards.
Here are some of our summer photos so far!

Anna has been wanting to cut her hair for a few months now. I told her after her ballet recital we would cut it and donate it to Locks of Love. (This gave me and Ron both time to adjust to the idea, the ability to put it up in a cute bun and the time needed to grow it long enough to donate the minimum 10 inches). As we got closer to the "cut" date she had mixed emotions. A few times she seemed to be hesitant and said she wanted to wait. But, I was able to convince her that it would indeed grow back if she decided to let it grow long again and I told her how happy someone would be to get her natural highlighted hair!

We had an exciting day on Saturday. Anna had her 1st dance recital. I wasn't sure how she was going to take it (getting up on stage in front of all those people) but she loved it. She had a great time getting dressed up and getting to wear makeup. She performed a tap, ballet and tumbling routine. After the show, we surprised her with flowers and her trophy. We went home and celebrated with a cookout. Karen and her kiddos came over (thanks to her for keeping Luke during the recital) and Ms. Sherry and Mr. Jerry joined us too. The kids had a blast cooling off on the slip and slide!

Anna had her pre-k graduation this week. She looked so adorable! They marched in to pomp and circumstance and yes I cried. It was so sweet. They called her name and she got a certificate. Also, the kids sang some cute songs at the end and the slide show had me crying... again. Here are some pictures of us (the proud parents), Anna with her teachers and Anna with one of her best friends.
