May 19 - 29

Cece is such a big helper!  She likes to carry Lynlee's violin into lessons.

What is better than performing one number in your school's dance festival?  Performing three numbers!  Ellie was so excited to be in the 1st grade dance, spanish classes dance, and 1st grade spanish class dance.

We got there really early to get a good spot for our camping chairs.  We were there early enough that Ellie's class came out for recess.  Lynlee was in heaven getting to play with her big sister!  Cece and I got to chat with Kristi, her ASL playgroup leader, because Kristi's children also attend RA.  It was fun to see her again.

Hannah and Ellie, ready for the Michael Jackson medley.

Ellie is in the middle wearing an orange wrap.

It was overcast and windy and a little chilly.  Perfect weather -- much better than roasting hot!

We celebrated the end of the dance festival by taking Hannah and Mia with us to Artic Circle for some milkshakes.  Fun times!

I took another hour on Saturday morning and got the seeds planted in the garden.  I couldn't find where I had stashed them last week when we put in the starts.  I found them in the storage room (we usually store them in the garage fridge, but it died and I couldn't remember where I had moved them to).  It is amazing to me how these tiny kale seeds grow into humongous plants.

Dr Cordingley is Cece's audiologist, but she was on maternity leave for a while.  While she was gone, we saw Dr Dansie in the Provo office.  But now that Dr Cordingley is back, we were excited to be going to the Mountain Point Medical Center again, about two minutes from our house.  We showed up to our appointment, and our friend Chloe the receptionist said, "why are you here? You don't have appointment today.  Oh, wait {while checking the computer}.  You are supposed to be in Provo.  I can bump your appointment half an hour and you can make it."

So we headed to Provo.  The girls love the Provo office because of the fish tank.

I love this graphic that Dr Cordingley had on her office wall.

Cece has decided that it is more fun to walk at the store than stay in the cart.

Decorating cookies is sure fun...

...and messy!

The last day of 1st grade is here!  Ellie was super sad and cried herself to sleep for the past few nights.  She had the idea to take a little present for each person in her class.  Luckily she had quite the stash of perler beads and was able to make up little packets for everyone.

Did I mention that frosting cookies was messy?  This store bought frosting took forever to wash off and about 5 applications of soap.

Picking up Ellie for the last time this school year.  A bittersweet morning!

There was a big store closing sale at the outlet malls so we went to check it out.  We couldn't find anything, but the girls had fun playing inside the racks.  And we really had fun when we ran in to Ky, Tobyn, and Tobyn's parents!

Lynnie has decided that if she can't have any other kind of pet, at least she can have pet snails.  She has started collecting them and bringing them to the window well on the south side of the house.

She likes snails so much that she even created one on the tangram app.

Greg and I spent a few hours cleaning out all of the weeds on this side of the house.  I helped until I hit the wall and started sneezing uncontrollably.  I made an appointment with Dr Kofford for Monday and got a booster.  I haven't had a booster since 2013, so that is pretty good.  After getting treated for mold and then oak trees & general trees (as a combo), I have been great and back to normal.  Allergy-free normal!

I can't remember who was sick, but we stayed home from church this day.  The girls played Primary for over an hour.  All of their dolls attended and were perfectly reverent.
