More thrift store deals!!!!

The kids and I went to my favorite whole in the wall thrift store the day b/4 C's surgery. This time I lucked out on deals for him. I found 2 LL Bean long sleeve polos, one Children's Place short sleeve polo, one long sleeve plaid dress shirt, & a LL Bean rash guard swim trunks and top.
I also found each of them a pair of pjs.
AND......a pair of tap shoes and Disney pink "real" crocs.
I got all of this for a grand total of $8.43!!!!!

C's toe surgery

C had a HUGE wart growing under his big toe on his right foot that was pushing his toenail off. My podiatrist saw it when I had my check-up and said it needed to come off right away b/4 it spread any more.
He also had one growing on the bottom of the same toe. (sorry the picture is a little fuzzy!)
Today, he had surgery to remove the 2 warts and she also had to remove his big toenail so infection couldn't get under it. He was such a brave little guy and only cried when she gave him the 6-8 shots to numb his toe. I lost count b/c I was holding his hands down so he wouldn't try to grab her or the needle and daddy was holding his legs down so he wouldn't jerk his foot. After the shots, he was fine and watched the whole procedure with a smile on his face.
He is so excited to have a big "BLUE" toe and is glad that his "wart toe", as he calls it, is gone.

Thank you Brother Johnny for being there with us today!!

Preschool graduation

The girls getting their dressed for the ceremony
C, their friend J, Z, and M waiting their turn on stage
M, C, Z, and two classmates sang the "alphabets sounds" song. They did awesome and M was the loudest. She LOVES to sing!!!!
A close up of them singing.
Standing together after they received their diplomas. The pictures I took of them receiving their diplomas did not turn out very well. Obviously, the lady in the picture got a really clear picture of her child.
The happy graduates. (They were standing on an AC vent and it was blowing their dresses and gowns up.)
Celebration dinner with MiMi and PaPa at O'Charlie's (the fancy restaurant to match their fancy clothes)
Me and the crew.
You can see just how enthused they were to pose for yet another picture.
My babies are no longer babies anymore and will start kindergarten in the fall. We are so thrilled and blessed that we found a 1/2 day kindergarten at a local church. They have met their new teacher and just adore her. She is really big on reading so I have challenged the kids to read 100 books this summer (they can read to me and I can read to them). If they complete the challenge, they get to go to Chuckie Cheese as their reward. They are pumped about it and feel very confident that they can read 200 books!!!!

Sick Kids

I haven't posted any new pictures lately b/c all three kids have strep throat and sinus infections. M is also battling really bad nose bleeds. I hope to post some pictures in the next week or so.

Some exciting news to share though (that I am very delayed in sharing). All 3 children asked Jesus into their hearts the Tuesday b/4 Easter. What an AWESOME day!! I have prayed for this day since I found out I was pregnant.

They also participated in their first communion at the Maundy-Thursday service. They will participate in their first communion during worship service tomorrow morning. I am SOOO excited for them.
