I love kids!

I was trying to catch one of the really crusty looks that Dan gives me sometimes. He's very good at it. Unfortunately I accidentally set the timer on my camera instead of just clicking the correct button and so it took too late. He just looks sad and grumpy. He wasn't feeling well. He's better now.
This is from that same series where he was making faces. He had woken up from a nap in the car and when I started to take his seatbelt off he got mad and wanted it back on. I put it back on and started taking pictures. He didn't want out for a while.
Wow, Derek managed to catch Jake happier than he was looking most of graduation -- except the part where he kept waving at me. I liked that.
Jake sort of participated in graduation. He kept giving the boy next to him who was doing all of the movements enthusiastically a look that seemed to say "why are you doing that?" He half heartedly said some of the words and did some of the actions and he yawned a lot. I chuckled the whole time. Jake is cute. He is very excited to have school out. His eyes lit up the other day when he said "Mom, do you think I have any homework?" I couldn't lie because I'm kind of bad at it so I said "no" and he just smiled and said "NO MORE HOMEWORK!". He's okay with just reading a book every day as long as I don't call it homework. He thought Kindergarten was long. I'm afraid of next year!

I'm excited for no more homework too! I get a few weeks off from nagging!!

Haven was similarly disinterested in her kindergarten graduation today - of course, the one song where she was really enthusiastic, I managed to push the wrong button on the camera and didn't get any of it - grrr...

Congrats Jake. I'm sure after summer is over he'll be ready for a whole day in school! Ha...Anika just gave her teacher a card that said she'll hate the last day of school because she'll miss teacher so much.

I strongly believe that kids should have three years of kindergarten. Then after that they can handle the big jump to 6 hours. Cute pix of your boys.

Jake has such a sparkly smile!

Every graduation at BYU-I, I keep thinking the kids look younger. Jake definitely takes the cake for youngest looking though. So, is it on to graduate school now?

My kids had an end-of-the-year singing concert at school. Evan yawned through every single song his group was singing. I'm not sure if he even got any words out. Between that and his fiddling with his pockets...

Programs with kids always crack me up. I'm even learning to lighten up on my own kids' behavior and just enjoy the fact they are kids who happen to be in front of an audience.
