Parr Patriot Award

Today was the Boss's last awards ceremony as a Kindergartner. He received the Parr Patriot award for great behavior in class this past 9 weeks. We are so proud of our big guy. Dad was finally able to make it to one of his awards ceremonies, but I wasn't. Can't believe that he is done with school tomorrow for the summer.

Backyard Pool Bliss...Sort Of

This past Memorial Day weekend we went to LA to visit family. The Prejean family was nice enough to let the kiddos take a dip in their new pool. I am really thinking we may need to invest in one of these for our backyard. I think it would be just the right size. Our only problem would be keeping the skeeterz away. So back to the pool party. The Boss couldn't wait to get in the water and he enjoyed every minute. The only thing that would have made it better for him is if he could have jumped in somehow. The Lady Bug on the other hand was not convinced that she wanted to hang out in the pool. She liked standing in the pool but would not sit in the pool at all. She did enjoy playing with the cups and with the Boss, but overall she voted pass on the pool time fun. Hoping that she has a better experience when we go to Austin  in a week. Here are a few pics from the pool time fun.

Lets see what happens if I pour water on her.
My cups!!!

I don't think so...
And here are a couple of pics from after the pool.

A Green Belt in the House

The Boss is moving right along in the karate arena and he still loves it. He tested today for his green belt.  In case you are interested in the program he is in there are the following in the Junior Division: White, Yellow, Orange, Green, Blue, Purple (3 Degrees) and Red (4 Degrees). He and his best buddy CZ are too cute during class. They love to sit next to each other and even have to do water and potty breaks at the same time. I am so glad that they are enjoying this together.

For this test they did lots of advanced kicks: A jumping front kick, a hook kick and a spinning hook kick.

A Tender Moment

This evening when we got back to the house after getting the Boss a haircut both of the kiddos fell asleep around 7:30pm on the floor in the living room. It was the sweetest thing and I just had to take a picture.

A Hair Cut - Stat

Morning conversation:
The Boss- Mom the reason my head hurts and I missed school yesterday is because I need a haircut.
Me- You sure it isn't because you had strep and a fever.
The Boss - No Mom I need a haircut! Can you do it this morning? I don't want to wait till tomorrow, cause my head might start hurting again.
We have to wait till tomorrow because tonight we have karate.
