So much happened that 1st month of McKay's life. The poor kid was to and from school all day every day. Not much rest for any of us and with Randy having gone back to Indiana 10 days later, it made for an interesting juggle. Luckily for me I have 2 great moms and awesome neighbors who stepped up to the challenge. This is some of the fun things that went on that month.
Micah had his 3rd grade Ecosystem presentation. He chose the ocean and had fun putting this together.
McKenzie had her final band concert of the year. She is the 2nd from the right.
Since Malia's birthday didn't land during school this year, she still was able to have her birthday spotlight and celebrate with her class.
Micah had his 3rd grade program.
I love it when newborns sleep through everything.
Grandma was here this week so she was able to be here for this program.
Micah's on the bottom row 4th from the right.
McKay survived 2 weeks. Such a doll.
Morgan had her last presentation in class and did it on Monkey's.
Then we made it to the last week of school and celebrated with their dance festival.
Masie wanted to make sure people know she is still the baby.
Then Grandma Tucker came and joined in the field day fun.
Malia doing what she does best...not sitting still.
Micah after running his race wanting to check on the baby.
The awards assembly did not dissapoint. Micah received a few awards. One for being part of the 50 mile club. He loved running during recess.
He also participated in the kowledge bowl with some classmates and won 1st place in their grade.
Then Micah was selected by his teacher to receive that Hawk award like his sister's did the previous year. He's a good kid and always willing to help others. I'm so proud of him and his hard work.
Then the dreaded last day of school came. One last time walking to school.
And of course our traditional picture with our best buds.
Malia and our neighbor Audrey. They were inseparable.
These girls really did grow up together. It was hard to say goodbye.
The girls with Mr. Eager. He was a great principal.
Micah and KC. Best buds.
Malia and Mrs. Whitaker. We found out she retired last year. She was an amazing teacher and has inspired so many.
Morgan and Mrs. Edler. Morgan loved having her even though at first she was bummed not getting Mr. Crandall. Mrs. Edler was the perfect fit for Morgan.
Micah and Mrs. Grover. So glad we were able to have her one more year.
School's out for Summer!!!! See the joy in his face.
Kenz and her friend Melanie came to cheer on the kids.
We had to get one pic of Mr. Crandall. We found out he retired at the end of this school year. Hillcrest lost some great teachers in 2 years.
Mrs. Headman had to get at least one baby snuggle in before we left.
Then it really hit that we were leaving. This was it. Our time in Utah was coming to a close and it hit us like a ton of bricks. No more walks to school with the coolest people around, no more late night game nights, no more...just no more Utah. The floodgates opened when Trisha started hugging Malia and didn't really stop.
Best aid ever!!!
We are so grateful for our time in Utah. We never thought we would have ever lived in Utah and then stay for 7 years. But we did and loved every minute of it. Goodbye Hillcrest! Thanks for the memories!!!
