Summer is Here!!!

Oh my heck summer is finally here. We have been outside playing going to the zoo and to parks and hiking. Every spring we look forward to the baby quail that are always in our yard. These poor little things got stuck in our backyard. We could hear the mom freaking out and chirping like crazy so Kevin and the boys build this ramp for them to be able to get out of our yard back to their mom. One kept going the wrong way so I pick him up on a plate and carried him to the fence. Too bad I put him on opposite side of the fence the other ones went. whoops I hope he found a way to his family :(
The boys looked so hot playing outside in the back so I turned on the hose and let them play in the water. They had so much fun.
Look at Nate's face, it looks like he is having the time of his life.
Ben not so much. He was pissed cause Tator took the hose from him.
All better :)

Preschool Advancement !!!

Nate is done with his first year of preschool. Mrs Alby made sure that we called it "advancement" and not "graduation" Nate did so good in preschool. At first he was having trouble because he would get upset when the other kids wouldn't do what Mrs Alby said and he would cry. We made him and chart and everyday that he didn't cry he got a sticker and when he got 10 stickers he got to buy a prize. After we started that he was good to go. Here is Nate with his friend Micah.
This is Nate's buddy Camden. He was afraid of Camden for a while because he was a little wild. He actually broke a toy that Nate brought for show and tell and the next day his grandma and him gave Nate and "e-mail" with some money in it to pay for the toy he broke. He told his grandma that he was really sorry and he wanted to give Nathan an e-mail. How cute :)
Mrs. Alby said in the program that Nate was the boy in the class that makes sure everyone is following the rules. I think he might get that from me. whoops sorry tator :(
This is Nate on the Last day of preschool.
