Kindergartener flies an airplane!

Enjoying a daddy daughter afternoon! Audrey was getting to do something with mamaw me and you were going to make the best of the afternoon.

We flew to Somerset, ate at Mellow Mushroom, grabbed some Baskin Robins, and then you flew us home. You followed the power lines from Somerset to London and I literally never touched the stick. I’m amazed at how well you can fly when you can’t even see out of the front window. Proud of you!

Audrey’s first piano recital!

I am unbelievably proud of you! You worked really hard and practiced so much! There were times that you would get frustrated but you continued to work hard to get it down. I couldn’t have been prouder that you got up there in front of all those people. That was a really big deal! I hope that you continue to play because I know that you can do absolutely anything you put your mind to. I love you girl! Daddy is always so proud of you!

Epic Preschool Show & Tell

This is probably the coolest thing your dad has ever done in an airplane! I landed the cub at Audrey’s preschool and about 20 kids got to climb into the airplane and pretend to be a pilot. My favorite part is hearing Audrey in the background: “That’s my dad” and “Bye Daddy!” I love my girls and I’m so thankful I got to do this for both of them. Amelia was just as excited as they were!

As usual, this is bad late being posted. May 2019

Circle what you want…

Audrey,

Your mom gave you a catalog to look at fall clothes for school and told you to circle what you want…

Looks like we’ll be getting a dog soon. You’ve been wanting a dog or a cat for so long and even though dad is allergic to them, I can’t keep you from experiencing the joy of a pet any longer. I wonder what you’ll name her? I’m already excited to see your excitement and I haven’t even looked for a dog yet.

Love you girl!

Daddy

Bye Bye Money

 

My Rock Stars

 

First of all, daddy made the mistake of buying you something out of the little quarter vending machines and now every time you see one you want something!  That’s what started your understanding of money. Now you see the vending machine and turn to daddy and say, “I want money.”  So we’ve dropped several quarters on bouncy balls, gum balls (which we tell you are bouncy balls), beautiful necklaces, and even some stretchy sticky miniature handcuff thingamajigs. 

The other night, we were trying to brush your teeth and you noticed that daddy had put some of his change on the bathroom counter. You wanted to hold the money and started saying toy, toy!  Daddy told you that you had to go to sleep first and then you might get a toy tomorrow. You immediately put the money down and said “Bye bye money!”
