School's Out for Summer!

Or at least a month ago it got out!  Ha!  Show how I'm still playing catch up on the blog.

Anyways, about a month ago Kennedie finished her last day of Preschool!  So crazy how fast time flies.  Here is her first day & last day picture to show comparisons:





I love the sheer excitement in both of these pictures!  So sweet!

Kennedie actually turned 4 on her last day of school.  I asked her if she wanted to bring donuts or cupcakes to school with her friends, and she picked donuts.  So Lantz went by early before she got out of bed and picked up some donut holes to share with her classmates & then picked up Kennedie & Sawyer fun frosted & sprinkled donuts.  I don't have a picture, but Kennedie had a butterfly donut & Sawyer had a start donut.  We put a candle in Kennedie's & sung happy birthday to her as a family.

We also gave her her present from us; a new swimsuit, swimsuit cover, and swim lessons.  Take note of the swim cover in the above picture.  She had a water day at school for the last day activity.  The swimsuit we actually gave her didn't fit-- it was too big (imagine that!).  So, Daddy & Kennedie headed to Target before school started & he let her pick one out that fit.

Sawyer, Preslee, and I headed up to Kennedie's school to watch her have some water fun.  I got Sawyer in her suit too so she could play with big sister.  Here are a few pictures from the last day:








And here's what Preslee was up to while the big girls had fun in the water:


Then later after school Kennedie got to go to her first swim lesson for this season.  To say she did better than last year is a huge understatement.  She didn't stop crying for 3 days last year.  This year, she walked right into the water on the first day like such a big girl, and listened to her teacher the whole time.  Here are some pictures:





Girlfriend was a rockstar for all 4 days of her lessons!  Here are a few more pictures from her last day of swim lessons a few days later:







This next picture shows how far she was able to swim all by herself:

We are hoping to get her back in lessons again this summer & hopefully she'll be swimming on her own in no time.  We are ready to get rid of the life jacket for her.

Sawyer & Preslee came to watch big sis swim on her last day (ignore Sawyer's runny nose-- she had the flu {yes, the flu in June!... and she had the flu shot!}):


A great way to start summer!
