Kindergarten Update:

 We wanted to test the theory that eggs can float in salt water.  We took two glasses and filled them with water.
 Then we stirred ten tablespoons of salt into one of the glasses.
 Next we dropped an egg into each of them.  The one in the regular water sank immediately.  Alanna was SURE that it wouldn't float in the salt water.
But it did!!  So much fun!

Schooling in jammies and wild hair is great too!  LOL!

 Cie-J and Alanna worked really hard to surprise me with balloons and a banner for our tenth wedding anniversary.  It was really sweet.
 Cie-J hung up ten balloons and on each one, he taped pictures and memories from where we were at in that time of our lives.  Alanna helped him illustrate the note cards.
 He even included my sweet little puppy Tucker.  
I miss him so much!
He called this one "the wiener that started it all"!!  HAHA!!  We ate wienersnitzel with brochen in Gremany.  Yes, that is a hotdog duct taped to a balloon...such fun to go down memory lane.

Here's to ten more and then ten more after that!!

Home School Update:

 We had our 100th day of Kindergarten!!
We celebrated by counting out 100 Fruit Loops and stringing them on a necklace. 

Then they promptly ate them.  
The End.

Ring From A Neighbor:

Our sweet neighbor Ms. Salina saw Alanna out on her bike and flagged us down.  She said she was shopping and saw this ring in a store and just had to to get it for Alanna.  How sweet is that?

Alanna ran inside and drew her a picture that included her dog with his tongue sticking out and wrote "Thank you for my ring" all by herself.  It was so sweet!  We have been blessed with two great neighbors that we have gotten to know over the last year and a half.

Also....Alanna looks so grown up in the picture.  Ahhhhhhh!! Stop time!

Breaking A Board:

Alanna saw this picture of herself and asked why she was blurry.  I told her she was just too fast...kind of like a ninja!  She loved that answer!  HAHA!

Afterwards, her instructor, Mr. O'Hara signed her board and encouraged her to keep working hard.  We may have to frame her first board and this picture some day. =)
