I have been the WORST blogger!!! But if you follow me on Facebook then you know that the Sears Family has a had a CRAZY busy month!!!!
Since I am so far behind, I am just going to do a quick review of the last month starting at the begining of May. Danika and Kyler had their last piano recital for the year. It was super cute, as always!!!! We love their teacher, Miss Cindy. After much debate, we decided that next year, I will just drive Kyler down to CG for piano lessons with Miss Cindy. She is worth it!!!! Danika, on the other hand, has decided she would like to try dance class next year instead of piano. She had fun and learned a lot, but she wants to see what Makenzie has been up to all year!
I spent Mother's Day with my 5 favorite people. They made me breakfast in bed and took me to Oreganos for lunch. MMMMmmmm!!!! Plus we did some shopping. I FINALLY got a patio table for the backyard!!!!
It was about this point in May that I started the huge task of packing our house. It really wasn't as bad as I thought since I am pretty organized and neat! But we needed a little packing break and so we took the kids to Tempe Beach Park for some spash pad fun!
I still can't believe that my little guy is all done with Kindergarten. It went so fast!!! The end of the school year was filled with lots of activities and performances! His music class did a concert that was adorable!!!! Then the Kindergarten class had a presentation of awards and a show. IT was soooooo CUTE!!!!!! They started the program singing Do Wa Ditty and ended it with a can can dance. Loved it!!!!! And got it on video!
After the program, Kyker was so happy to get to say goodbye to his teacher, Mrs. Rivera. She had unexpectantly gone out on maternity leave the week before but came to the performace to say goodbye. Kyler LOVED her!!!! She treated those kids like they were her own.
Another end-of-year festivity for Kyler, was water day! The girls and I surprised him and showed up to watch!
And then, his very last day of Kindergarten......
His last day of Kindergarten was also our moving day...
I am a super sensitive person, so this was such an emotional day for me!!!!
I could not be more proud of the accomplishments that Kyler made in Kindergarten. He had a terrible preschool experience. The teachers didn't like him and he knew it. He learned almost nothing. And he began to really dislike school. I am very nervous about his Kindergarten year because I wanted him to have a better experience. I needed him to have a teacher who wouldn't give up on him as soon as she found out about his ADHD. Well I got all that, and so much more!!!! From the start of the year, Mrs. Rivera raved about Kyler's good behavior. He also made friends quickly with everyone in his class. Mrs. Rivera said that they girls loved him and would fight over who got to sit next to him. Most importantly, Kyler LOVED school. H e wasn't counting down the days until summer break. In fact, he was very sad about having to say goodbye to his teacher and his friends (especially Emmi and Brooklyn!). He is already looking foward to 1st grade!
Saying goodbye to my home was so sad!!!! I LOVE that house! It is the house I brought my babies home too and watched them grow. We shared a lot of holidays, family time, cuddles, dinner, and parties in that house. Every room has so many happy memories!
We are pretty settled in our new house. It still doesn't quite feel like home though. The walls are white end empty!!! But the house is gorgeous and we are loving the space. I will post pics of the new house soon.
I don't know where rhe kids are going to go to school next year. The elementary school in our neighborhood left much to be desired. We checked out some school out of district and charters. They are on waiting list. So we are in limbo. I hate that feeling!!!
Last night Scott and I attended his GAPP graduation. GAPP is his new nurse graduate training program at work. It was a four month training and we are so excited that after his shift tomorrow, he will be an official RN on the floor!
I am super happy to be on summer break!!! Going to school full time is a lot to handle with all the kids at home and Scott working strange shifts!!! I did get straight A's! I only have 2 classes left and my student teaching but due to some paper work issues, they will not let me start my student teaching until January (I was supposed to do it in October and graduate in December). Oh well. Laynee will still be home a lot next year so I will enjoy the chance to stay home for one more year. But I have to admit that I had a great time doing some teaching in my mentor teacher's classroom this past semester. I think I will love the job! I take my American Government AEPA tomorrow. I am sooo nervous! I hate test taking!!!!
Kyler is going to be having his surgery on Junen 17th. I hate to think about him hurting, but I know in my heart that we will be giving him a great gift- the chance to hear!!!! Prayers would be appreciated!!!
Well that pretty much catches me up!!! If you are still reading this, then you must love us!!! lol
