We had the opportunity to ride on Thomas the Train today. We headed up to the Heber Valley Railroad and joined in the fun little activities and then went on a 25 minute train ride. JJ really loves trains and this was just a great thing to do as a family on Memorial Day.

I got some fun ice cream sandwich molds and we tried them out today to make treats for Beth’s last day of school. They turned out pretty good – I think I need a little more practice – they were messy – but yummy!
Today is my Dad’s 60th Birthday. I hope he knows how much I love and appreciate him. He has and does so much for our family and I am so glad that I am a Daddy’s girl. I love you Dad – Happy Birthday!

JJ’s school had their annual Dance Festival today. This was the first time the Life Skills Class has been able to participate. Joey was able to come too and JJ loved having his family watch him. He did such a good job doing their dance to “Under the Sea.” He was so excited about it and it was a lot of fun to watch!

Today was Beth’s last day at Adventure Time Preschool. She has loved going to school and Miss Megan has been a really wonderful teacher for her. She always has such glowing things to say about Beth and how smart she is. She told me today that they were learning about opposites and she wasn’t sure how to teach the kids that, but Beth got right up in front of the class and yelled out the answers and got the rest of the class involved. She’s going to miss school this summer. But we have her enrolled in a new preschool in the fall that even has dance classes included. Beth is really going to love it!

Today was JJ’s last day of school. Ms. Raines has been an amazing teacher for JJ. He has accomplished so much this year. I’m so grateful for the amazing schools they have for kids with special needs. It truly helps so much. It’s possible that JJ will go to the same school and class next year and I really hope so. He does get to summer school for a few weeks this summer, so I’m hoping that we can stay on track with everything!

We celebrated being out of school today. We took the kids to a double-feature at the movies. We went and saw UP and the NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM 2. They were both really fun movies and I’m really glad we got to take the kids. By the end of the 2nd movie, the kids were getting a little anxious, so I think maybe 2 movies in one day was a little much, but I’m glad we did it anyway. We ate at KFC in between the movies and it was just a fun day out for the family. Poor Joey was pretty wiped out too – he had helped Curtis and Anne move this morning. A good day…

I finished up my next kits today for my upcoming June Challenges and my Featured Designer spot at Digitals. I wanted to have it done earlier, but at least it got done on time. I have a lot to do this upcoming week to get ready to go move cows with my family and hopefully have another kit done before I leave…we’ll see if I actually can get it done!
