The Pre-K through 4th grade classes at Allendale took an end of the year trip to the zoo. It was so much fun! Donnie and I both got to go and enjoy the day with all her classmates and parents. While we were there we got to see a one month old baby Llama--which was very cool! It was just a really great day and I think Maci really had fun! Posing for a picture

Maci had her very first tumble meet today. I was a little bit nervous whether she would even do anything. She did very well for her first time. No "tada's", but really good! She was really excited when she found out she got a trophy and certificate.

Cheryl Dunn contacted me and told me that His Hands really needed outfits up to 6 months and lots of Desitin. So not only did I ask the church for help but Peyton wanted to see if Allendale school would like to help. Mrs. Stevenson's 4th grade class really got excited about helping out. Their class alone gathered up over 100 items!!! I even visited the class one afternoon to show them pictures of the babies they would be helping and answered lots and lots of questions. They were even more excited when they learned that our little Mylee would probably be wearing one of the outfits they got for His Hands. They also told me that when Mylee was finally home--they definitely wanted her to come visit them at school!
I took a picture of all of the items we collected, and I also took a picture of Mrs. Stevenson's class! Then I emailed them to His Hands! Holly and Trena, who run the home, couldn't believe how much we had! They were very appreciative! It ended up filling up 2 big suitcases. Cheryl's son Nathaneal is going back to Taiwan in May, so he will bring them with him.

We celebrated Mother's Day at the City Park. It was a beautiful day! I'm such a dummy too--I didn't even get a picture of me with my Mom or my kids! Not too smart huh? We all had such a great time! I love it when we can get both sides of the family together! Donnie's family

It just amazes me what my kids think of doing sometimes! Today Peyton was bored, so she asked Maci if she wanted to go outside and paint her house. Being the curious mom, I said "What do you mean paint her house?" Peyton replied, "We are going to paint Maci's house with her water paints." And I'm thinking--what a great idea! Why didn't I think of that! The girls had so much fun! They painted that little playhouse all different colors--It was so cute when they were done! And the rain we got the next day just washed it all away!My little painters
Peyton painted the outside...
...while Maci painted the inside
The finished masterpiece!
