But daisy chains and four year olds are a winning combination!!
Love this kid!
Gamely trying to keep the very defunct daisy chain Mummy made on her head as it falls apart.
She is a good sport.
Her birthday cake
So pleased with herself.
OH MY WORD!
Gilbert was greatly excited by Elsie's Matryoshka doll.
I am sure it isn't hand done, but this 7 piece set was only $15 on Amazon. And it gives the kids great delight. Well worth the money!
And a music treasure box from Grandma and Grandpa.
The littlest matryoshka
The next morning, I came out of my bedroom on my way to work to this.
A happy way to start the day!
And now, Gilbert's graduation. They always do some sort of play for all the kids to participate in. This year, they did the months of the year. Each month had there own song. A lot of props were involved.
I loved this little elf. She looks so shy and hesitant.
I love the very straight arms
Gilbert was part of April. He came striding across the stage, his raindrops stream out behind him.
Kids are so cute at graduation. They are shy, hesitant, and bursting with pride, all at the same time.
Poor July had his shirt on backwards and inside out.
This is the other boy with Down's in Gilbert's class.
Gilbert has thrilled to finally be allowed to wear his suit to school. With cowboy boots.
Mr. Berns was a great teacher and will be Gilbert's first grade teacher as well. He asked the school board to let him loop through two grades with students and I think it will be really awesome for Gilbert. It will eliminate wasted time in getting to know the students, figuring out where they are academically and socially, and learning which personalities clash.
Then they sang a few songs.
The entire grade
Our backyard. We are getting ready to list our house, so I have been taking random pictures when the lighting is good and everything looks shipshape.
Lily, flying her kite.
