Transforming to SIX!!!! ( In a few weeks)


We celebrated this fun little boy a few weeks early!




He loves all things Transformers right now!


Fabulous cake made by Sweet Satisfaction in Keota!
They were super helpful, made a GREAT cake and they delivered it too!


These two went down for the first time about 9:45 that morning.
They took a few breaks for food and drinks but didn't stop until we tore them off the slide at 6:30 that night!
They had so much fun and Preston is already planning on getting the slide again for his 7th birthday!



They found lots of good ways to use the slide!




He did make a short stop for presents and cake too.




I'm really not sure who had the MOST  fun though....might have been this guy.


And we wondered why we had to keep filling up the pool!!!!!!




These kids had so  much fun!
What a great way to celebrate six!

Iowa Simmental Field day fun

Peighton took Princess Anna on her first outing this weekend in Ames for the Iowa Junior Simmental Field Day.

It was a great weekend of learning and showing.

We drove around campus for awhile Sunday morning and Dustin showed Preston where he'll live in a few years and how there will be some nice Pi Phi girls right up the street. ;-)




Waiting to go in.


Looks like we need a smaller harness for Peighton.
This one is as tight as it will go and it's still too big on her!



Peighton did a great job showing Anna.



She ended up third in her class that day.
Super proud of this girl and her heifer!


Right before showmanship, Anna had had enough and gave up.
She laid down while we were waiting for the seniors to finish up.
Peighton thought it was funny and we made a cute picture out of it!
It was a long day for her as well.
We brushed her off and sent them into showmanship though!
Can't wait for the next one with these two!

Great day for a pig show and chasing banners!

These two get better with each show!
It was a beautiful day in Oskaloosa.



Preston and "Sprinkles" in showmanship.


Peighton took "Jelly" in for showmanship.








Preston did a good job showing "Wonder Woman."



In the second show of the day Peighton and Sprinkles won her class.
During the Championship drive she came in third overall and got herself her first banner!
She was pretty excited and proudly hung it on her wall when we got home.

T-Ball, Last Days and Big Ol' Fish!

We've been BUSY the last few weeks!



Peighton's school had "Cowboy Day."
We had everything we needed for that!
Guess who got to scrub the poop off the zebra show boots....not the cute girl wearing them!



This kid was SUPER excited to start T-Ball!
He is usually most excited about wearing the cleats.


#4 is our favorite!


He's had some really great hits at his games!


There's a bit of this at every game.


Most of the time he does a pretty good job though!


He really likes to slide into home.


Last day of 5 year old Preschool!
He has had so  much fun this year and learned so much!
He sounds out words, tries to spell as he makes stories, counts by 10's, adds and subtracts-I think he's ready for kindergarten!





Ornery.


We had a fun preschool picnic for all the graduates complete with graduation hat.





He's been dying to get his pole in the water lately!


These two went out for about an hour and caught what we like to call "Bubba Fish."



Then it was time for her last day of 3rd grade.



She's been busy with Farm Safety Camp, a cattle show and Vacation Bible school since she got out!

Dancing Queen!

Another fabulous year of dance is in the books!





She wanted a few outside pictures before rehearsal Friday night.


When I asked her to pose this is what she gave me!
Not too bad!


Action shot.


She LOVES clogging!
And I love watching it!



She said jazz was her favorite this year though.




We even got a few pictures with the other dancing queen, Hayden, before the recital.




Grandma Sue and her girls.




She did an awesome job and got flowers from Grandma Sue and her Dad!
She can't wait to start all over again!
