Kristen's Pre-school Graduation

Today Kristen graduated from pre-school. This year kristen has learned so much and grown so much as a person. Her teachers always spoke of how wonderful she is, and how much of a help she was to them. She loved giving hugs to her teachers and they loved it too. She always was playing with her classmates and helping them when needed. Her favorite things about school are, playing outside on the bikes and scooters, her teachers, friends, the monkey bars, learning about tree frogs with the red eyes, painting, and all of the activity stuff (she is standing here telling me what to type).
For her last day of school we made memory books with pictures that her teachers had taken through out the year. After which we had strawberry short cake, and then her teacher presented Kristen with a certificate of graduation.
Kristen is very excited to go to Kindergarten in the fall. But first and foremost she is ready for summer fun!

PS: When I load the pictures all I see is the word mumbo jumbo text thing, not the pic, otherwise I would post things under each picture and explain what is going on in each. If anyone knows how to fix this, that would be great. Thanks.

Brithday Plate

For my birthday Shavonne and Derek took me out for dinner. Which was really good, and it was nice to just sit and talk with them and hang out. I just love those two. Before dinner though Shavonne took me to polka dot pottery where we each painted our own pottery plates. I copied her and did a birthday plate. It will be used in our family as a special plate for only the birthday person. They get to use it for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and everything else in between. I am excited to use it this year for my girls birthdays.
Here is my plate that I did, I think that it turned out pretty cute. When we were painting it we had to do each color 3 times in order for the color to be what we were using. It looked pink when I was done with it in the store, but once they fired it, it turned red, which is what I wanted. Because my kitchen colors are red and white. Anyways, I love it! I am super excited about it. Thank you Shavonne and Derek for a great birthday!

Are you for real?

Some people may not believe this when they hear it or in this case read it...but I did an Iron Man competition. Most Iron mans are done in a day. However, I completed an Iron Man challenge where you are given the month of May to complete the common Iron Man competition of swimming 2.4 miles. Biking 112 miles and running 26.2 miles. My sister came to visit my for one of those weeks in May which put a hold on my mileage (which I was totally cool with because it was such a great visit and uh yeah I got to see Wicked!) so really I did this challenge in 3 weeks. Which for me was so great. I have not accomplished a goal I have set for myself in a really really long time so I am super proud of myself.
Here are some pictures of me in my shirt that I got from the ceremony that they held. Sorry if they are sideways...something is weird with my computer/camera settings (a little annoying). But Yay for me! Bask in my accomplishments with me will you...I am pretty excited.
