Holiday World was a win for Harrison and Lewis

Harrison and Lewis loved the lazy river, wave pool, and slides. Definitely a fun day in the sunshine.

Forever family, always there for each other even when miles keeps us apart.

Field Day for Lewis last Friday

Emotions were so high on Friday, mine included…tears, smiles, hugs, cursing under my breath. I loved helping in the classroom beforehand by passing out their Denmark shirts, getting pictures to share with Lewis’s teacher, and spending some time with another momma and friend…whom also made 22 Denmark shirts for our class country representing Men’s World Cup Qatar. 

I was incredibly triggered with how much I really HATE field day from my childhood days. I lost count of how many times I quietly cried, wiping tears off my cheek. The competition, need for speed, not following the rules…not that I blame them with hundreds of other kids around AND the noise of loud music near the gym…it was very overwhelming. Lewis was short fused as well. This was a HARD afternoon. Oh how I hate field day.

Arts Festival at Billings

One of four pieces of Harrison’s artwork from this school year. It was so exciting to see through his eyes and into his imagination. 


Principal Lewis and Move-A-Thon

Morning hot chocolate and some e-mail 

Awarding some Big Paws and learning how to use the radio 

Back from recess supervision. Busy day for Principal Lewis last Thursday. This may have been the best school auction item ever!

Last Friday was Whittier’s Move-A-Thon and Lewis put his all into running and walking for 20 minutes. Four laps accomplished…woot woot. 

First grade is wrapping up and we will miss not having Mr. B next year!
