Last day of school 2015!!!

And just like that school is over!  The kids did great and even though I am not a fan of how the schools are run out here in Indy (I got spoiled in UT) they learned a lot and survived.  It's hard to believe I'm going to have a freshman!
 Morgan is going into 7th! She's growing up so fast.  I never have to worry about this one and her schoolwork.  She is on top of things and always does her best.

 It was Micah's teacher's first year of teaching and she was awesome.  She made sure Micah felt included and important.  He tends to hang back and try to go unnoticed sometimes.
 Malia's teacher was great at trying to keep her chatter to a minimum.  She is our social butterfly which is awesome, but sometimes she needs a little redirection and Mrs. Ramsey was awesome at it.

Spring School Events 2015

The girls had 2 more band concerts this spring.  One in March and one right before school let out in May.
 We had an inkling that changes were going to be made to Randy's job by the end of the school year, so the girls prepared to say goodbye to some friends. 

 They really did a great job and improved so much by the end of the year.  
 Micah's big presentation at school was a famous Hoosier.  He chose to do Wilbur Wright and put together a powerpoint presentation about him and dressed up like him as well.  He did a great job putting his presentation together.

Attempt at McKay's 12 month shots

And this my friends is what happens when you attempt to take 12 month shots of a child who is uninterested in your agenda.

Yep, that's the best we got.  Oh well, I tried.

McKay is 1!!!!

It's been a whole year since this little guy joined our family and of course we couldn't break tradition by not making him a cake to destroy.  We decided to make him a sun cake and were hoping since he's a little more active and daring than the other kids were at this age that maybe we'd get a good cake destruction.

But after that initial touch, we quickly realized he wasn't going to destroy it.  
So we got him a fork to see if that would help.

He ate it and sure enjoyed it!
Then he just wanted to run away and try to get cake an frosting everywhere.
So we let the kids join in on the fun.

Don't get me wrong, he still made a mess.

But a cute mess.
We went out for the rest of the day and then for dinner we went to Culver's.

We are sure grateful for this kid.  He's kept us on our toes and there's never a dull moment with him around.  Love ya lil man!
