Trampoline



About a month ago, we purchased a trampoline.  I found it for half price on one of my beloved Facebook buy n sell sites. 
Finley reading the instructions while Daddy starts the building process
Watching very impatiently (striped dress 2nd hand)
Slowly but surely it came along.  I had to help which I don’t like to do….
Finley bouncing even though still not ready (pajama bottoms second hand)
This girl is in bouncing heaven
For some reason my photos are not in order and I don’t want to reload them so bare with me :)….Greg reading the instructions
Figuring out how they all fit together
Can I bounce yet daddy?
Finley’s job was to hand us the springs 
Almost ready
Penelope LOVES it. 
And so does Finley!

Pre-School Year End Celebrations




Last week, Pacekids held their year end celebrations.  It was so much fun!  Very happy that Greg was able to leave work for a bit to watch it.  He took the photos and I took the video.  If you want to watch their performances or anyother videos just click HERE. If anybody knows how I can post a link on blog (in the side columns) please let me know!!
Old McLogan 
They sang Billy the Bull
Finley had one horn :)
Billy the Bull had no horns because he was a…COW (finley was the only one who screamed this out)
The cow’s on the farm go MOO MOO MOO
The Pigs on the Farm go OINK OINK OINK.  Loved that Finley was using sign language for the oinking.
Getting recognized for all her hard work.  This is her Aide Courtney
The girl on the left is Finley’s Speech Pathologist
Sorry I forgot to rotate this.  
Time for cupcakes
Penelope loved the balloons
And apparently the cake too :)
The last 6 months at Pace  have been nothing short of spectacular.  The level of improvement in ALL areas in Finley is somewhat extraordinary.  She has just grown so much and is much better at communicating and expressing herself.  She did really well on her assessments but still has a severe delay in Speech.  Normally you have to be severe in 2 areas to qualify and she is only severe now in one.  They have pleaded their case as to why another year at Pace will be beneficial but we won’t find out until August if she is or not.  This means I needed a backup plan for MWF in case funding does not go through.  T/TH she will be at a regular preschool regardless of what happens.  A new preschool is opening up in Silverado so I have her registered there for MWF just in case.  And the best part, they aren’t making me pay the registration fees until the class fills up – which is great!!

Superhero Day




A few weeks ago Finley’s preschool celebrated Superheroes week and on the final day they had a big party.  This was all in preparation of the Race for Pace on June 23rd (today) and yearend superhero celebrations that followed.
Finley with her cape and mask she made
Superman arrived.  Finley and L didn’t know what to think of him
Waiting in line to get her face painted
Getting ready….
Face painting for the first time ever – she was great!
My superhero rainbow!  Look how awesome she looks with pink lipstick.  I am so envious.  Greg’s gonna have his hands full when she starts dating boys…when she is 30 :)
Finley meeting Spiderman.
Watching Spiderman spin his web
Trying to spin her own web
She was having a blast!
And the perfect ending to any party – SUPERHERO CAKE!!

Father's Day 2012



So Father’s Day was last week and yes I am just posting about it now.  I am so ridiculously behind on my blog that it is sad.  Father’s Day was spent exactly how Greg wanted to – in his pajama bottoms until just before his brother came over – at 430 or so.  He slept in and laid on the couch watching golf and nascar.  We made him brunch and he made us (and his dad) supper.  Here are some photos from our dinner with the Florizones for Father’s Day!!
