I Wish....

As we wrap up the school year we have been doing some fun things in the classroom. One thing was called I Wish. The students had a book to read about a little girl who tries making a wish every possible way. When they were done we traced their silhouette and they turned it into a picture of them blowing a dandelion. Then they wrote 6 things they wished for. Of course there was the ipad or iphone, or I wish I could have anything I wanted, but here are a few that made my heart smile.
This is what they looked like!
I wish I was extra super strong.
I wish I was an archaeologist.
I wish I had a spiky Mohawk.
I wish I was  dog.???
I wish I had pointy shoes.
I wish I was a lucky duck.
I wish everything was made out of hot Cheetos.
I wish I could run 60,000 mph!
I wish I had a twin brother.

Aren't they so cute :)

And in case you were wondering how ol' Rocco and Taegan are doing... just peachy. I feel like it is already summer! We have spent the last couple of weekends playing in the water, taking long naps (yes we!), and just lounging around. Here is a picture update!


Excavator!

Taking a break at the splashpad... what is that we see????

A TRAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hanging out under the waterfall.

Sorry for the blurry pic. Going through the car wash.... still not the biggest fans :)

Grandma sent us $5 and we got to pick out our own toy!! Thank-u Grandma! On a side note~ Notice they picked 2 different trucks.... not the best idea. We are now on the hunt for another snow plow!

We have been falling asleep in some funny positions lately! I guess it was a crazy night!

Melts my heart :)
School Picture! Rocco and Taegan

On our way to surprise Rosa at brunch... Happy Birthday Rosa!!

Yay!!! We got to see Rosa :)

Take me out to the ball game...

Ray and I had a fun little afternoon date on Thursday. We went and watched the Rangers game! It was weird to be out in daylight for that long without children :) We had a blast! But because the game was in the afternoon the sun was out in full force and we didn't apply enough sunscreen.... I say we. I at least attempted to put sunscreen on but didn't get my legs, but Ray on the other hand said he didn't need sunscreen because he is Mexican. He is now sporting a ridiculous sunburn line which 99% of the time it wouldn't be a big deal but we had family pictures today! So we will see how they turn out!

Go Jonny!

Soaking up the sun :)
And just what were the boys doing while we were enjoying our afternoon? Hanging out with Grandma and Grandpa doing this....

Do you feel the love?

This week was Teacher Appreciation and appreciated I felt :) The PTA and students know how to make a teacher feel loved! My Monday started with this cute little surprise waiting for me!

*Thank-you Lauren :)

We had a week of yummy lunches and breakfasts. PLus very thoughtful gifts from many students!


And to show my appreciation for the boy's teachers I made them these cute little things. The little sign says "Thank-you for helping us grow!"
 (idea from Pinterest of course)


I can't believe the school year is almost over, I think there are 14 more days left. Where did the time go? So as the school year comes to close I am trying to plan the summer. With two active toddlers that need to be kept busy at all times I need a plan stat! I will keep you updated on that :)

And of course I couldn't blog without including pictures of my guys!  


First a video of soccer time with Dad :)

Taegan painting with his shades on.

This is Rocco's idea of a smile :)

And Taegan eating with his shades on... as you can tell Taegan likes his sunglasses!

If these boys could eat and sleep outside they would

Loving life outside digging in their "construction sight" as they call it :)

TRAIN!!

Something they love as much as trains and dirt... chips and queso :)

The boys getting ready to go play soccer with Dad... every soccer player needs clean teeth!

Pit stop to refuel on milk!

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful Mommy's I know :)
