Growing up

Look at this big girl! In a previous post I said that Life touch photos sucked. I have to eat that statement for these pictures. They turned out very nice.

We are winding down this school year. I will be happy to see it go for the most part. I will be sad to see Becca move on to the elementary school.

In a couple weeks the school has a Kindergarten graduation ceremony that is very exciting for the kids. She looks sooooo cute in her cap and gown!

Daddy Daughter Dance 2010

Today was a busy day. This morning was "morning with mom" at Bridget's school. I was able to arrange going to work a bit late so I could go this year. Last year I missed this and Bridget was really disappointed. Then this evening was the Daddy Daughter Dance at her school. It was all about Bridget today. She found this dress some weeks ago and was so excited about it. It is the same color that she wore to the dance last year, but she decided it was a good color on her and it would match the tie we bought Schaun last year. Smart girl. This girl is a ham for the camera!

The fun never ends

When we got home from dance tonight, I sent the girls up to change their clothes. Becca comes yelling out of her room that the lid to the gerbil cage is closed but the gerbils are gone! What? That doesn't make sense. I go look and sure enough, they are gone. They chewed a hole thru the plastic tube and took off on a vacation. Luckily, we found them both in her room before Daisy did.

This is the second time the gerbils have escaped recently. I think they had a taste of freedom and liked it too much.

The following are a few things the girls have said that I don't want to forget. They make me laugh.

A friend of the girls developed an ear infection. I was passing that news along to them and Bridget asked how you get an ear infection--is it from earrings. I said that it was on the inside of her ear. That is when Becca piped in, shooting Bridget the "you are so stupid" look and said that she got the infection from all the listening she does. Of course!

We went to Sonic and got the girls a slushy drink. Bridget got watermelon and Becca got cherry. They are drinking and Becca of course has to take the lid off and make a big mess out of the thing. That was when she discovered and announced that she had a real cherry in hers. Bridget proceeded to rip her lid off--you see where this is going? I did and started laughing even before she said the words. She looked in her cup and asked why there wasn't a watermelon in hers.
