End of School Parties

Both boys had end of school parties at a park close to school. The kindergarteners went to George Washington park - they all walked there and were exhausted by the time they got there, it's over a mile away! Mrs. Renteria was Cohen's kindergarten teacher. He really grew to like her and his classmates, especially Angelo.

Ethan got to drive to his party at Newton Park.  His buddies; Elian, Gavin and Adam played for hours! I think Ethan ate at least seven snow cones.  Mr. Jones was Ethan's 3rd grade teacher this year.  He was  great teacher - really cared about Ethan and getting to know his personality.  He was always very concerned about what Ethan needed in regards to his diabetes as well.  

End of School Program

The boys each had an end of the year program that they had been preparing for. Apparently this program/dance is a long tradition at Robert Down. Apparently everything Robert Down does has a long storied tradition!! Cohen had an Egyptian themed song and Ethan was a 50's dance. This was their last event of the year. It was a great school year. They really love their new school. Until next year!

Kite Flying

Eric got a wild hair to take the boys to Asilomar beach to fly his sport kite for FHE. It was soooo windy that it made it impossible to fly the kite. The line actually snapped and the kite went flying into the brush that lined the beach - Eric had to go wade through it all to get his kite back. Not my kind of beach night...

Baby Showers!

I was lucky enough to have two baby showers. One put on by my sisters and mom and the second by Cortney and Vivian Miyahara. I hate pictures of myself while I am pregnant so posting these is a huge deal for me. Both showers were adorable and I got some amazing gifts. Everyone was nervous to buy me super girlie clothes and bows - probably because I specifically told them not to! I walked away with some great gifts though - I don't think I returned anything!!
