A few weeks ago, Jacob lost his other top front tooth. We were on our way to Austin and we stopped for dinner at Schlotzskys. His tooth was barely hanging on so I told him to try to get it out before he started to eat dinner. He reached right in, pulled a few times and out it came. I was so hoping he would have the two top teeth gone at the same time. Such a sweet look. But it hasn't lasted long. One of the teeth is making it's way down and doesn't have much further to go.
|So proud of our little guy!|
|His best buddy, Brett.|
|Most of the games involved water to keep the kids cool.|
|Brett, Jacob and JT- best buddies!|
|After Field Day was over, they had a family lunch where they actually grilled hamburgers and hot dogs outside on charcoal grills and also had fruit, chips and cookies. Luckily Jim was able to join in on the family fun.|
Jacob had been asking me to come up for lunch before school was out. I decided to go the Monday of the last week. It's always fun having lunch with my buddy even if they do eat at 10:40!!

You know how I like my comparison pictures. Here is Jacob on the first day of school back in August of 2011.
|These pictures brought back a ton of emotions of my little guy starting school.|
|First day of school- August 2011.|
|Last day of school- May 2012|
|Is it me or does he look taller and thinner compared to the first day? Heart. aching.|
I just can't say enough about how great Jacob's first year was. We were blessed with such a great experience. Mrs. Naber created such a fun learning environment for them and Jacob truly had fun at school. He made some great friends that made it even more fun for him. Part of me feels sad that this first year is over and moving forward will be more "real" and serious. With homework, spelling tests, real grades etc. I'm sure he will be ready for that when the time comes but this year sure was a good one. Praying for another great teacher and another great year!
The last day of school was their end of year party. A pirate themed party complete with water games, bounce houses and a snow cone truck.
|They are always so accommodating to the siblings. Luke and Sarah got to enjoy a snow cone too.|
|Jacob huddled up with his buddies!|
|I'm so glad they asked the kids to wear their swimsuits.|
|Bunny ears are a popular pose with this age!|
|Oh Mrs. Naber how we will miss you!|
Another thanks to Pinterest, I thought it would be fun to make a "Welcome to Summer" banner on Jacob's last day of school. Since we are going to the beach in a few short weeks, I decided to make little buckets full of summer fun items. A new beach towel, bubbles, balls, a few sugary treats, water/sand toys, goggles and of course a few books and an activity workbook. They loved it!
The last week of school, Jacob started swimming lessons in the evening and continued the next week during the day. He was swimming pretty well last summer but seemed to have forgotten it all when this year rolled around. After the two weeks with Ms. Julianne he is doing great. The last day he swam from one end to the other (the shorter length of the pool) and we were thrilled.
|I swam with Luke and Sarah while Jacob worked with Ms. Julianne. Here is Sarah striking a pose. She insists on wearing her towel over her shoulders!|
|One day we packed lunch and enjoyed it by the pool. I have a feeling we will be at the pool all the time this summer. Jacob is loving it!|
|End of year party, receiving his trophy from Coach Jim! :)|
Summer sure has taken on a different feel now that Jacob has started school. I'm thrilled to have all three of my babies with me every day for the next three months! I'm looking forward to spending summer together and I'm excited for the things we have planned! Wishing you all a fun, happy and safe summer!
