A little late but here is a pic of sweet Dylan on her 1st day of school. She's having a great year so far and is even still making straight A's! I just hope she continues to like it and it doesn't bcome boring like last year.
Day 2 was SO much fun!! We spent the morning on the beach then went back to eat lunch an get naps. We went back out in the afternoon. And then that night we went crab hunting!! I think the adults had more fun than the kids!! We caught a TON!!
Our big crabs!!
Dyl and Hayden burried.
Skye and Hayden playing and chatting in the sand :)
This year we went to Galveston. We stayed at Pointe West and we will definitely be going back!! Thanks Shelly for recommending it!! It was VERY nice and really big! Day 1 was a a short day at the beach, because we didn't get there until about 5. But, the girls had a blast in the 3 hours we were out there. Skye wasn't too sure about the water, but she loved the sand buckets and sand. My girls just ran and ran and ran!!
Late post, but wanted to post anyway. The last week Dylan was in school they did an award ceremony. I am pleased to say Dylan got DISTINGUISHED A HONOR ROLL!!!!! The "distinguished" part about it is that she never made below a 95 on her report card all year! She also made her goal for her Accelerted Reader program and got to go to the party at the water park. Nate and I couldn't be any prouder of her because she worked very hard all year! We are now onto 2nd grade!

Getting her medal...
Getting her award.....CONGRATS!!
The last day of the year party was a blast!!!! Landy, Amy, and I worked exceptionally hard on this one! We did a treasure hunt! The kids LOVED IT!!!! We made treasure maps out of paper sacks and even burned the edges to make them look weathered. We had 7 rhyming clues.
1. When you are sick, she'll fix you up quick! (Nurse Stone)
2. When the bell rings, you go here to sing! (Music Room)
3. This is the girl with the reddest hair, get your next clue under her chair! (Dylan)
4. He never means to do any harm, look in the locker of the boy with the broken arm! (Peighton)
5. When you're thirsty you drink H2O, get your next clue you don't have far to go! (water fountain)
6. This is the place you check your points for AR, get your next clue you won't have to look very far! (computer lab)
7. This is the room surrounded by glass, go look for the beans covered in grass! (Teachers lounge)
It was SO MUCH FUN!!! I'll definitely be doing it again next year!
Guess who's going to the City Tournament........THIS GIRL!! We beat the 1st place team on Sat. moving us up from 3rd place to 2nd!! We are done with the regular season before everyone else because we had a much tighter schedule (playing 3 games a week). The official word will not be released until the 31st when the other 2 teams are done playing their last 2 games!! I could not be any prouder of Dylan's playing ability this year! She truly has natural born talent esp. this being only her 2nd year to pick up a glove and ball. She is 1 of 2 players in the league that has hit a homerun. The girls were SO excited when the ump called the game that they were jumping around hugging eachother. All Dylan keeps asking is if her pic will be in the paper because my mom saved all my newspaper clippings from my city tournaments when I was younger! LOL! Congrats Icebreakers!! Ya'll definitely deserve it!!!
My Mother's Day this year was a little different than usual. I got to go to the Rangers game!! They played the Yankees and sadly lost because our pitching was WAY off. Overall, I ALWAYS have a great time at the ballpark and get to go quite often simply because my sweet Daddy has season tickets. Unfortunately, I only spent the day with Dylan because Hayden isn't old enough to sit through a baseball game :)

Me and sweet Dill-Pickle....Poppie bought her a new Rangers hat...SO CUTE!
