My favorite time of year is here again.....softball!!!!!!!!  This year Micah Claire decided she
didn't want to play tee ball, she wanted to play softball.  Last year she saw some of the softball girl's
crazy socks and that hooked her!  So this year she is part of the
Arkadelphia Fast Pitch League (AFPL) and we are so excited!!

Our little slugger in her crazy hot pink and leopard print socks!
Totally cheesin!
LOVE This one!!!!

Our little number 2....she loved it because it's Kinley's age...such a sweet sister!!!!

You're Now A Fun Time Girl

Kinley bugs has waiting for months to go to Ms. Mae's with sissy!  The day was soon approaching so we had a few things to take care of for the big day!!!

 A week before the big day a special package came for Ms. Kinley.................
 To her surprise....................
 It was very own Minnie Mouse Nap Mat!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 She couldn't get it open fast enough and lap down on it! She was tickled it came with a built in pillow!!!
 Melts my heart to see her nap on this big girl mat!
 We rolled it up and put it away for the big day!!!!!!!!
 Then it was time for trim!!!!

 The front was chin length but the back was all kinds of lengths!!!!
 So the Friday before we started at Fun Times we made a visit to see Ms. Taylor

 With sucker in mouth.....she sat oh so still!!!!!
 Ta-dah!!! The SUPER cute new bob!!!!!!!

Finally back to all one length!!!!

 She was so excited about her new do. She kept making take pictures of it and then show her the picture!

 FINALLY Monday March 25 came!!!!! She now gets to eat breakfast at home like a big girl!!! Mommy made special blueberry muffins to celebrate the occasion!

 MC was so excited to have Kinley there!
 Kinley bugs taking in her extra bag of clothes and stuff for her new locker!
 Sweet sisters finally together! PRECIOUS!
 MC walked Kinley around and introduced her to all the big kids; melted my heart!
 A few hours into the day Ms. Mae text me these 2 pictures to show me what a BLAST Kinley was having!
And of course she had to stick her tongue out in of those pictures! 

 Day Two.... she ran right in and started playing!!!!

 Day three, she was too busy to even take a picture.........but I pretended to cry and got......
 This sweet smile!!!
 Day Four she made me stay and hear her sing their morning songs!  We made it all week with NO TEARS!!!  Everyday I would ask how her day was and she would say..... I had fun at Ms. Mae's but I miss my friends at AJ's.  And finally after 2 weeks at Ms. Mae's......................
 Her buddy Madi got to start and she was in HEAVEN!!!!! Now she is trying to patiently wait for her buddies Macy and Emmett to join her and the entire gang will be back together!!!!

 LOVE these two silly, precious girls! I am so glad they have made the change to their new daycare so easily!
 My sweet Kinley bugs, we are so proud of you!  You made this transition so easily and you are already learning so much!  We love you to the moon and back! You are now officially a Fun Time Girl!!!!

She is officially registered!

Wednesday April 10th FINALLY came.... the day my girl has been asking about for months now....Kindergarten Registration!!!!!  I went to the gym at 5 am and got home at 6 am......only to find Micah Claire standing in our pitch black kitchen waiting on me.  I said WHAT ARE YOU DOING UP?!?!? She smiled big as Dallas and said I am ready to go my Kindergarten Registration.  She then immediately said...Oh yeah and my other front tooth is wiggling like crazy.  I said Oh Micah Claire and she replied.... Mommy please don't cry.  Cracked me up!!!!!
 Her registration time wasn't 9:30, so she had to go to school for a little over an hour.  When I picked her up she was bouncing off the walls with excitement!!!! 
 She was more than ready for all the stations they had set up!
 She couldn't wait to show the dentist that her new big girl tooth and the new "wiggly" tooth she has!
 Height, weight, BMI
 Temperature check
 Pulse check
 Blood pressure check
 Right ear.........
 Left ear
 Listening to those strong lungs
 Lastly the vision check which she passed with flying colors!
A little over an hour later and our baby girl was officially registered for Kindergarten! She is over the moon about going to Kindergarten which makes my happy. But it just pains my heart to know she old enough to go to real school.  Her school isn't big, but it's not small either. This mommy's mind races with worries for her and my eyes fill with tears when I think about her being such a small fish in a big pond and having new responsibilities.  But her heart is exploding with exciting dreams about what kindergarten will be like! We have started praying for her to get a good teacher. She said...... Mommy why should we pray about that, I am sure all the teachers are good or they wouldn't be there.  Oh my sweet baby, I pray you are right!
