my college girl

malia, my dramatic girl, was in shock when i told her i enrolled her for college. she didn't even let me finish saying 'college for kids' and she was getting nervous. but she calmed down when i told her it was for kids.

college for kids has been offered for a long time. jos and i used to attend. but back then, the classes weren't as exciting. we took classes like keyboarding.

i enrolled malia for cartoon character drawing and web movies. she attended both classes monday through thursday from 1:30-4:30pm for 2 weeks.
this was the first day. i gave her the map and followed her 
as she looked for her classes. she looks so tiny. well, she is.

ready to start drawing

 on two occasions, i was able to take micah to play
with his god brothers while we waited for malia.

here are some of her drawings. she's really amazes me. and the art teacher, who used to work for dc comics said she was really good and that she should keep at it.

 my favorite one

she obviously enjoyed the drawing class more, but she is constantly making web movies at home. she doesn't want to post them on youtube though. i guess she's had a talk at school about posting content, or becoming friends with strangers on the internet, which is good.

she's already excited for next summer's classes.

micah's kindergarten graduation

i was worried there wasn't going to be a kinder graduation, but they announced it last minute.

all the kids wore felt graduation caps, it was pretty cute. my little boy is growing up!

micah got out early, so he and i went for frozen yogurt to celebrate. 


he's easy to please. he just wanted to feed the turtles, and (literally) throw food to the fish.

 in the bag full of art and school work was this funny thing:

he is sad to leave his teacher and his classmates, but is looking forward to first grade. i'm not looking forward to more homework, plus spanish homework. we will be very busy after summer break.

micah's baptism birthday

happy baptism birthday to my boy! since he doesn't eat cake, and i didn't get a chance to make it to hans and harry's, we stacked little cookies to make a 'cookie cake' out of lofthouse cookies. he loved it of course cuz it was super sweet. his baptism candle is in storage, he'll be able to blow it out next year.

honor roll

micah received an honor roll award today. this boy hates homework, but he does a good job in class. he is the one who is always asking for rewards for his good deeds. for this one, he got a lego army minifigure. 

the school year flew by, and this boy is graduating kinder on monday. my children just keep growing up.

presidential award

malia received the presidential award today. this award goes to the top 3 students in each class. very proud of her, especially because this was a personal goal she set for herself.

it's a big deal to her to have the president's signature on her award (even though it's just a stamp). it's a big year for her. she will be 10 before i know it and will be entering 5th grade soon. i'm hoping she won't like boys until at least 8th grade!
