okay, this one is kind of old, but I just wanted to add a pic of Josiah, so I took this one off of Brent's page.

Our future Texas Ranger

We signed Ashtyn and Josiah up to play t-ball this summer. Of course, Isaiah thinks that he is just as big as they are and should be able to play too!
(as you can tell by the quality, this is a picture that I took with my camera, not one of Brent's)

ashtyn's graduation

ashtyn graduated from preschool last friday, so i guess that means mande and i are officially old (well, we're not in our 30's yet, so we got 1 more year). all the classes got up together to sing songs and recite pledges to the flags and the bible. she did a great job and did all the motions to the songs and recited the 10 commandments by heart. it was amazing to see how much she learned for that night. the best part for me was when it was ashtyn's turn to get her diploma. as each child would walk up to recieve their diploma, their teacher would read some answers to questions they had answered earlier that day. one of the questions they asked ashtyn was "if you could wish for anything what would you wish for?" and her answer was "for my daddy to not have to go to work so he could stay home and play with me every day." that made my wasn't the answer i had expected. it was a great evening. we went to taco casa for dinner after - ashtyn's pick, of course!

It is so hard for me to believe that Ashtyn will be starting Kindergarten in a few short months! I know that all parents think that their children are smart, but she really is. She amazes me everyday! Of course, as you all know she is a little on the shy side. She loves her preschool class and I was completely shocked when I heard that she was telling jokes and makes silly faces to get all of the other kids to laugh! Her Pre-K class has been such a blessing for us and has really allowed her to grow and be more self confident. My mom, her teacher, told me not to be surprised if she gets in trouble next year for talking too much! Can you believe that? This is like a totally different child!

it's all new to me

Okay everyone, we'll see how I do at this blogging stuff. This is all new to me and I am just hoping that I can keep it up. My purpose in starting this is for all you friends and family that we don't get to see nearly enough! I know that you would all especially love to see the kids more often... so here we go.
