Last Day of School

Zachary started at The Children's Courtyard in August 2007.  The first few months were rough, but he got through it and made some great friends.  As he 'moved up', we saw big changes - no more tears at drop off, smiles through the day, potty training (!), 'show and tell' time, birthday parties with classmates, and our brave boy emerged. 

Zachary will be going to a new school in the fall for 5 day PreK, so we decided to pull him out for summer time.  On his last day of school, we brought flags to share with all the friends, and a CD for his class to keep.  He had a great day, and we took his picture with Ms. Alicia and Ms. Tatiana, his teachers for the last 5 months.

Dancing Princesses

We had the privelege to see Gwen and Hannah's dance recital today.  They have been taking dance at Devotion in Motion all year and did a wonderful job.  Zachary and Sophie really enjoyed watching all the dances and were surprisingly still and well behaved during the recital.

After the recital, we got to play with the sweet girls and congratulate them on a job very well done!

Take Me Out to the Ballgame!

The YMCA Tee Ball program and TCU partnered to give the kids playing tee-ball a chance to run out on the field.  It was a great idea, and except for the kids getting a bit antsy from waiting to go on the field, they had a lot of fun!

Grandma T even came with us to cheer on the Frogs against UC-Bakersfield.

We got to sit in the stands, which Zachary loved, and the kids had a great time!

Poor Zachary

After we got home from lunch on Sunday, Grandma M stopped by to drop off some extra cupcakes.  We were all visiting, and next thing we know, Zachary is 'tossing his cookies' all over the tile.  Before we can react, he does it again.  We finally get him in the bathroom, and he does it again. 

Poor kid projectile vomits just like his mom.

After another round of throwing up - made it to the bathroom this time - he took a little nap.

Cuddled with dad and puked one more time - and then it was done.  He ate crackers, watched some tv, and was back to 'normal' by dinner where he consumed 2 bowls of pasta.  Kids are amazingly resilient!

So glad my buddy is doing better!

Zachary's Lucky Day!

Zachary and Steve went fishing this morning.  They've been several times before, but have never caught anything.  This time, Steve suggested they get live bait (EEEEW!).  They made a deal - if Zachary got his own worm out of the bucket, Steve would put it on the hook.

Zachary was a very patient fisherman, and caught one fish and one turtle!  Grandpa also got a fish and a turtle.  Poor Steve was so busy with the worms that he didn't have too much fishing time.

When they reeled in the fish, Zachary was shaking from excitement.  When they reeled in the turtle, he started running in place and as soon as it got close he took off running - just like in the cartoons! :)

Later in the afternoon, we were watching the Kentucky Derby and he picked the number 4 horse - Super Saver.  Wouldn't you know - that darned horse won!

Next stop... Vegas!
