Strawberry Limeades

I had to post this recipe for strawberry limeades because it was so good! Sprouts has limes 9 for 99 cents and strawberries for 99 cents so I had to run out and get some. Here is the recipe:

1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries
1 cup lime juice
4 cups water
1 1/2 cups sugar

Blend strawberries and lime juice until smooth. Combine strawberry mixture, water, and sugar in a pitcher. Pour over ice.

End of the Year

I can't believe it is already the end of the year and I'm going to have a 2nd grader! This is the boys at Wyatt's water day. I had to take this picture because if you look closely they are holding hands! That is rare around here!

This is Wyatt, Aiden, Justin, and Marcus waiting in line for the dunk tank.

I wasn't able to take very many pictures at water day because it was only about 25 minutes long. Each grade only plays for a half an hour and the kindergartener's got out there late and it cut into their time. At least they had an ice cream party later in the day.

All the 1st graders did a performance and they sang a bunch of songs. For the last song they sang My Wish by Rascal Flatts while there was a slide show. It was really cute!

After their performance we got to go back to their classroom for pictures and to carry their stuff home.

Ryan's mom came to see Wyatt perform and we took more pictures.

This is Wyatt and his teacher Ms. Monteleone (The kids called her Miss M). Wyatt is doing a goofy smile in this picture.

Wyatt with his friends Connor and Kellan. They were all in the same class this year.

Aiden had his preschool graduation the same night. Here he is in his cap and gown!

This is Aiden's best friend Matthew. They had alot of fun together. Aren't they so cute?

These are Aiden's teachers Mrs. Webb and Mrs. Brown and most of his class. They were really good teachers. He loved it so much he is going to go there next year too.

Here they are right before they sang some songs.

And some more pictures.

The boys and I went to Mother Nature's farm yesterday to pick some peaches. I would not recommend going there for peaches. They had only two rows of peach trees and they were tiny and alot of them were rotting and had bugs on them. But they loved the huge sunflowers so we took some pictures by them.

Wyatt and Aiden had fun at school this year but we are excited for swimming lessons to start, the summer reading programs, the Harkins summer movies, lots more swimming and being lazy!

Update and scrapbooking

I haven't updated much lately because nothing new is going on with us. We are just counting down the days until the boys are done with school. This last week is going to be fun. Wyatt and Aiden both have school performances that I'm excited to see! Wyatt has been practicing his songs all week for it at home. Aiden has preschool graduation and they both have water day on Monday plus an ice cream social. I remember loving the last week of school when I was their age! I can't believe I'm going to have a second grader! Where did the time go?

I took a short break from digital scrapbooking and just these last few days I have gotten back into it and wanted to post some of my really cute pages. Isn't this kit just adorable!

I'll post more pictures of all the boys fun events next week.

My first time sewing

My friend Sarah took a class at Domestic Bliss on how to make A-line skirts and so she's been showing me how to make them. My first skirt didn't turn out like I wanted because I think we measured it wrong but I made this one today and it turned out so cute! I am so proud of myself especially since I have never sewed before in my life! Who knew how easy and inexpensive they were to make! This will be my first of many more skirts!

Isn't the material so dang cute! This picture doesn't do it justice because it looks way cuter in person!
