He's my hero!!

My oldest child is terrified of heights, so I was really shocked when he told me he wanted to take a diving class instead of swimming class this year. But he has gotten up there and faced his fear, even if it's not graceful.

5 little words....

For a couple years now my oldest has been rather adverse to me telling him I love him.
He'd frequently respond with,
"do you have to say that?"
or
"I think I just threw-up in my mouth."

But lately, when I tell him I love him,
you know what he says to me???

"I love you too mom"

and oh how my heart has ached to hear his little raspy voice say that to me again.
and yes, I always knew he loved me even when he didn't say it.
But I love hearing it!!!

Like Paige said, better late than never....

Here are the pictures from Isaac's kindergarten graduation

coming into the auditorium. he was the last one and I think the girl in front of him was his kindergarten crush... :)

Getting his certificate from his teacher Mrs. Watson.

Singing some cute songs. I feel bad for the kid behind hims parents, I'm sure they're wondering why on earth they put the tallest kid in the class in the front row...
It's because he had a speaking part. He did awesome!!!

Brotherly love.... or something like it.

My friend posted this on her facebook and I just love it, it's from the movie The Incredibles and perfectly sums up mine and Jason's feelings on the subject...

Helen:I can't believe you don't want to go to your own son's graduation.

Bob:...It's not a graduation. He is moving from the 4th grade to the 5th grade.
Helen: It's a ceremony!

Bob:It's psychotic! They keep creating new ways to celebrate mediocrity, but if someone is
genuinely exceptional...

quick trip


We went on a super quick trip to Utah over the Memorial day weekend. My cameras battery died before the end of our first day there so the pictures are completely limited but here's what I did get...
This is my family. Man, we're an attractive group of people!!

These are all the grand-babies on my side of the family. It was so much fun having them all together.

These are my boys at the "world-famous" Thanksgiving Point dinosaur museum. They got to go with Mema (my mom), and their uncle Eli.
P.S. they're swimming away from the shark in this picture.

********

So the most exciting event of the trip occurred on our last day there, just hours before we were supposed to arrive at the airport for our flight home. We went to a petting zoo, just to pass the time, and my youngest had an awful allergic reaction to the ponies!!! Something that should have been in the depths of his eye socket swelled out of his eye covering a good portion of his actual eyeball. It was really gross. Luckily it didn't affect his breathing and we were able to find an urgent care and get him properly treated before it was time to fly home.

******
We are now being told to have him tested for allergies (the back scratch stuff), and I'm looking for peoples input on this. Is it horrid? not so bad? worth it? let me know!
