Yep, Boston graduated from 3 year old preschool. It was really cute, I even almost cried. No, I'm not kidding. At the end they played a slide show with a country song about "let them stay little"or something, anyone know what I am talking about? I'd love to download it, so if you know let me know. Anyway, they just sang songs and did a little gymnastics to show a little bit of what they learned. During the songs he plugged his ears as you can see in the picture. Then he actually ran through the little obstacle course they had set up, which I was shocked, especially after the ear plugging. He was really excited when they gave him the trophy, he ran to me exclaiming, "I got the Piston Cup, Mommy!"
This is what his teacher wrote to him:
As shy as you try to be, I learned the truth. You are ready to make friends and learn with them. Thank you for all your help this year. Keep practicing your name and pretty soon you'll have it perfect. Miss Ashley 2009

The boys loved the beach

Boston lived in this raft at the pool

Shane was determined not to get burnt so this is how
he was even in the pool. Yep, he's that guy.

I know, I know it's been a long time coming, but I'm finally blogging about our Mexico family vacation. It just took us so long to get over the swine flu, just kidding. We had a blast and it is the way to vacation with children. It was a direct flight, and an all inclusive resort. Believe it or not it was cheaper than our southern California trips with camping and staying with family. Really! We could have taken day trips from the resort, but it was more money, and frankly it sounded too much like work. So for a week we just swam at the pool and played at the beach, eating whenever and whatever we wanted.
