Beauty had her Kindergarten Graduation. It was cute to see all of her friends and classmates singing “I’m going to be a part of it, First Grade.. First Grade” to the tune of New York New York.
It was followed up by an ice cream social where the kids had their choice of a crazy amount of toppings. Beauty signed us up for crushed oreos and could not figure out why I was buying a package of regular oreos at the store. She was amazed that I could make them into crushed oreos on my own.
Beauty finally lost her first baby tooth. Believe it or not I pulled it out with a string!
She couldn’t wait for school so she could show her teacher and take home the “tooth-book”– a classroom book with a a cute brown bear, brown bear inspired rhyme..
“Tooth Fairy, Tooth Fairy what do you see, I see ___________’s tooth smiling at me” You fill in the blank with your name and then attach a picture.
But before I got the picture printed and in the book Beauty lost another one, so we had 2 entries.
Look at those droopy little eyes–we are so not morning people. We get up early but are not functional till after 8:30am …
This photo was taken before school on the morning of C’s big Betsy Ross presentation. They all had to choose a famous American to research and do a speech about. C choose Betsy Ross because well…she must be his great great great great grandmother of course.. after-all we have the same last name. It made him really excited to do the research so I went along with his assumption. He had to bring a prop for his presentation and I suggested that I could help him sew his own flag, but like most boys and men it was only a good prop if it included food C mixed the cake batter himself (spice cake, his pick) I baked it and he rolled out and cut the fondant himself. I did the assembly (icing the cake with cream cheese frosting then applying the fondant).
There were lots of oohs and aahs from his classmates and C had a big proud grin on his face..totally worth it!
Oh yeah his speech was great too. I was very proud of him. The video is hard to hear. All the kids were were stationed around the room and the parents rotated from student to student. All those speeches going on at once made for tough video recording, but the bit at the beginning where he reveals his cake needs no audio …the look on his face was amazing!

We served a pancake breakfast to my son’s 2nd grade class. My hubby is the pancake king, and my son was so proud declaring that everyone thought his Dad was the “coolest”! I asked him what they said about me (you know the one who got all the stuff together and volunteered the pancake king and poured the syrup) he said “no-one said…man that syrup lady was awesome…jeeze mom”
They also sang some cute songs and did some dances for all of us….here is my first try at an animoto video check it out!
