"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 4: 6-9

ICS Birthday Treat

One of my favorite things about Carson's school is how much parent involvement there is. I got to be parent partner on the day after Carson's birthday. It's a super busy day, but so much fun! All 16 Kindergartners in his class are so sweet! The special birthday boy... 
We celebrated with his choice of sprinkle sugar cookies with his class!

Carson turns SIX!

There's no stopping it...our baby boy turned SIX! We love watching Carson grow into the person God has created him to be. He is a sweet spirited, compassionate little boy that we are so proud of! When we tucked him into bed the night before his birthday, he said "Mom...let me guess...you are going to put streamers and balloons on my door, and I'm going to get to eat on the special birthday plate for breakfast!" I love how he has already caught on to our family traditions! You were right buddy!
Breakfast on the "It's Your Special Day" plate, complete with a candle in his waffles... 
His birthday sweet treat...a boston creme donut from Dunkin Donuts...his favorite!
We spent the day playing with his fun new birthday toys. Later in the evening, we went to dinner and to see the movie Dolphin Tale 2! Happy Birthday Carson James!

Birthday fun with the DeMoor cousins!

What a fun night with the DeMoor cousins! The kids had a great time playing in the backyard and eating cake and ice cream for Carson's birthday.
Carson loved all of his fun birthday treats, especially his Ninja turtle mask complete with glowing eyes from Uncle Ken!

Carson's Ninja Turtle Birthday Party!

Carson loves Ninja Turtles right now, so he wanted to have a Ninja Turtle birthday party at Nana and Papa's house! The Frye side all got together for a birthday cookout. 
Since the Ninja Turtles love pizza, I made pizzas out of frisbees and Matt picked up a couple of empty pizza boxes to make a fun pizza toss game!
The kids loved it! 
Then we made "bad ninjas" out of balloons, and the Ninja turtles had to defeat the bad guys! They are ready to take them down!  
This game was fun until they knocked the balloons too hard into the grass and balloons started popping!  
Carson requested Papa's famous cheeseburgers on the grill, french fries, and baked beans. It was a yummy lunch for sure! 
Thanks to Pinterest, this Leonardo birthday cake was super easy to make for our big 6 year old!
Such a big boy!  
We loved celebrating Carson's special day with our family, especially our sweet Lily girl!

Farm Day at CCC!

Now that's one cute farmer! We love our preschool and all of the fun activities they have for our kids. Today was farm day! 
I had the privilege of volunteering and getting a front row seat to all of the fun. I read The Carrot Seed to each of the Pre-K classes and helped the children plant their very own carrot seeds. Tanner was thrilled to have Mommy there!  
Planting his carrot seeds... 
There were different stations set up in their multi-purpose room. One of Tanner's favorites was the apple tasting (he LOVES apples!) and painting with them too! Love that sweet smile! 
Such a fun day with our Tanner boy!
