sometimes it's
throwing toys
not sharing
whining the other has (insert random item) and they don't

but sometimes it's this...
and I forget about the other times.

I am so lucky to have my two babes and that they have each other. My fave thing lately is Bryce reading books to his baby sister. And when they say goodnite to each other and hug/ is too precious. I wonder how Bryce will look upon being the big brother in a few more years. =) {they are 3 1/2 years apart}

so we know this school year has been nuts. Moved away from my friends teaching first grade last year to new system...started in second..displaced to different school, teaching Kindergarten,,, now transferring to a brand new school in the fall back to teaching first.

schooool's out for the summer!!!!!!!

My longer in kindergarten.

We did have some fun this year. I do not know what I would have done without my awesome para Gena. She kept me from totally losing my mind. I will miss her next year!

Some random photos to share,, trying to get without faces~ of my super parents demonstrating grinding wheat into flour for making bread...smelled so good all day! Having parents help out was something I did not have in my former school. what a difference!

I hate that I haven't had time to blog. Though my huzbin sighs anytime he hears me at the computer. School is sooo close to the end I can taste it! Checking off things of the EOY checklist and just telling myself I can make it 5 more days. My kids are nuts and ready for time off. They worked hard this year, but boy did kindergarten do me in. I so looking forward to being back in 1st next year. {it helps that I meet my whole grade level last week and they are fabulous..woo hoo!}

so I'll leave with some more Martha Baby zine wonderfulness..

who's that left-handed girl??... {@ Avery's age}

aahh the Lost finale tonite. Sad, happy all in one.
