Lala Rose

For Easter, we all received a surprise when my mom gave Marlie a baby chick! M named her chick Lala Rose and enjoyed having a temporary pet. Lala Rose lived with us for a while until she was ready to move on from her cage. Thankfully, she had the perfect place to move onto at Bryan's mom's house. Lala Rose now lives happily amongst other farm animals and M gets to check on her when she goes for a visit.

PreK Graduation

At the beginning of May, Marlie graduated from PreK. As I've said before, we all loved her preschool at Athens First United Methodist Church. Even though most of the children had been together for a few years, the director and staff made Marlie feel right at home there. We are so thankful that the Lord led us to AFUMC and we will miss their preschool this year. On their last day, the PreK classes had a program/graduation ceremony. We watched the kids perform songs, they received "Fruit of the Spriit" awards and were presented with their diplomas. A small reception followed the graduation and then we all went out to a lunch of Marlie's choice at a local Mexican restaurant.

So proud of our sweet girl! She was the "baby" of her class but you would have never known it.

Natural Baby

In May our local cloth diaper store, The Natural Baby, held a photo contest. I typically don't participate in contests like that, but I couldn't pass up a chance for free diapers. These are a couple of pictures of Emma in one of our favorite Little Boppers cloth diapers.
