"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children.
I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden.
I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

Kindergarten graduation

Hollie graduated Kindergarten on June 10. She is so excited to be in first grade. We LOOOVED her teacher and are sad the year is over. She did have a tough year but I think she is ready for first grade. She didn't want to be a part of the program and sat in the audience with me the whole time. i had to walk her up to get her certificate.
We are so proud of you Hollie!

photo shoot

A couple weeks ago my friend Korinne Stowell tookthe kids out and took pictures. These are the ones I got with my camera. She did a much better job. Can't wait to see them all.
