you make me smile like the sun, fall out of bed.

sing like a bird, dizzy in my head.

spin like a record, crazy on a sunday night.

you make me dance like a fool.

forget how to breathe.

shine like gold.

buzz like a bee.

just the thought of you can drive me wild. 

oh, you make me smile.

and clearly you have the same affect on our babes.

water day.

preschool water days are the best way to celebrate the end of the year.

for two days the kiddos don their swimmies and head outside.

there are shooters. squirters. and sprinklers for all.

and the teachers even join in with the water hose.

with much squealing.

 and shouting.

and sheer bliss in the summer sun.

everyone is soaking up the last few days together.

and whoever said disney was the happiest place on earth, never visited our preschool.

tomorrow, for water day #2, they are adding soap.

trent's big finale.

the time had come for trent's big finale.

his very last preschool pageant.

he sang and smiled & I cried and cheered and cried some more.

and here, the greatest encore performance.
love. love. love.

almost birthday.

when your birthday is in summer, you get to have an almost birthday.

complete with an almost birthday cupcake bar.

an almost birthday blessing.

and almost birthday candles!

we even sang, "happy almost birthday to you!"

almost as good as the real thing!

may the fourth.

we played hookie,
and chased wookies!

did jedi fitness, made a yoda puppet,
and ate skywalker snacks.

just trent skywalker and queen mommydala.

happy star wars day,
may the fourth be with you.
