Excitement with Ellyssa - 3rd Grade Awards Day

The end of the school year and the beginning of summer.  Could't have been any prouder of baby girl on Award's Day.  Firstly, I do want to apologize for the white blob in a lot of the pictures.  No, we all know I can take pictures so I assure you it is not my finger, it was the lady in from of me.  She just couldn't sit still.

Gattman Park Field Trip

The last 3rd grade trip of the year was to Gattman park to enjoy the water.  Dad had to work, but Mom and brother were there to watch Sissy play.  We even got personal pan pizzas from Pizza Hut for lunch. 

I was a little worried about going due to this trip being the day after field day, considering we all got sunburned at Field Day.  Much to my relief I walked right up to a nice bug shade tree.  I sat in a foldout chair and watched all the kids have fun.  Even the ones that I didn't even know put a smile on my face to see them laughing and giggling and cutting up, without a care in the world.  Jessica's mom Kristie came and we sat together and laughed and talked while they played.  It was one big carefree afternoon.

Sissy is taking Alex in to the water for the first time 
ok so he was a little scared of the sprinklers 
Mom, I'm going to try to take him in here 
I don't think he likes the cold water 
Sissy please don't take me back to the water

Mom can I have a Popsicle like she has? 
Alex was a big hit with all the girls...

Unfortunately, it was a repeat of last year, her class lost the second round.  But we had a fun time and Daddy even got off work to come see her compete.  We ate lunch together in the shade.  It was a great day!
