Time Passing Too Fast

I know that time starts flying in about April. We have birthdays, Easter, and start to the end of school activities. This year seems to be going faster than I want. Tanner has been interested in hunting and shooting. Since I carry and I have been around guns all of my life, Tanner has asked more questions and has shown an interest in shooting. So my dad and I took Tanner out to shoot and considering how hard the wind was blowing he did really well for his first time out. He asked if he could go back out again. While we were shooting I left my camera in the care of my daughter. I haven't decided if that is a good thing yet or not. ha!
Beginning in April we have birthday parties and Easter parties and Easter. This year, my dad's birthday, Tanner's birthday and Easter all fell within a week. I also did Ella's star attraction around the end of March which was a week before. She does enjoy being the center of attention at home, but at school is a little different. This year, her dad was given the privilege of reading to them instead of me!
Easter hunts and easter baskets filled with goodies and candy!
Then birthday fun! This year Tanner wanted to invite a few friends to go eat pizza and bowl. So two of his friends went with us and I had so much fun listening to their conversations. They were even super good with Ella, helping her bowl and even letting her sit with them.
We cannot forget gymnastic recitals and end of year parties. Ella had so much fun at gymnastics and enjoys going.
Ella's last day at Ms. Angie's was harder than I expected. This is her last year with Ms. Angie before starting kindergarten and we have enjoyed our days with her.
This is also Tanner's last year of elementary. He will start Jr. High next year and I really don't know how I feel about that yet. I let Ella take pictures of his last playday.
Two weeks ago we had Ella's graduation and it is official, she is a kindergartner. My baby isn't a baby anymore, but she is becoming a beautiful girl!!
This Thursday is Tanner's Walk of Fame through the halls of the elementary. He is growing and becoming a handsome man whether I like it or not. I just hope I give him the right guidance for his life. So this has been our two months in a nut shell. Enjoy your summer as we will and be safe!!
