Another Student of the Week honor for Miss Meredith!
Grandma's friends threw her a very belated 90th birthday party and we got to join in on the fun!
Jillian in her signature fur-lined boots. Even when it was warm enough for shorts! These boots are ready for the trash, but she isn't having it! (Also notice they are on the wrong feet, but since she wears them like that most of the time, I think the soles probably are formed this way!
Jillian was a big helper to me at work when I had to make a trip up on a non-school day!
Fielder ECC Rodeo Round-up - so fun on the hop-a-long. Jillian was nervous about this because she said she "wasn't good at it" but her teacher said she actually asked for extra practice, and she did great!
A picture tom Jillian's sweet teachers. This came after a phone call that Jillian had been stung by a was 3 times on the playground! She calmly went to her teachers and said "I think something is trying to kill me!" They weren't sure how to take that, but she showed them where it hurt and as they investigated, the wasp flew out of her shirt! They said she did great - only cried when they tried to put some medicine on it. But this was to prove that she was doing great while taking a ride with her friend, Luke.
Daddy and Meredith both participated in the Pinewood car derby at church - they both chose orange and Meredith was pretty excited to have a Longhorn car like daddy!
Too cold to swim yet, no problem - just ask mom if you can swim in the tub in your suits!
Mustard and Senley the hippos were peeking out after zoo school.
Wonder how many pictures I have of my girls on this elephant?
While shopping at the Highlands, we went past the little creek and I told Jillian that when she was little, she loved to "feed the hippos" in the water (which was just her throwing rocks in) and so immediately wanted to do it this trip, too!
Meredith was so excited to win this fuzzy mustache out of the claw machine all on her own! Uncle Neil was so proud!
Out to lunch celebrating our last Wednesday BSF together. I loved getting to go to Bible Study with Jillian these past two years and sharing all that we were each learning - I sure will miss my buddy next year!
Jillian worked to collect all the pressed pennies at the zoo throughout the year and we finally finished out her book!
As WAM comes to a completion, each class hosted a booth in a Mission Fair to talk about missionaries we support at our church - they shared food and other pieces of the culture of the areas they learned about. The Towerys are missionaries in Japan and Meredith loved learning about them and has been very interested in learning more about the Tsunami a few years ago. She was super excited to share all she learned with people from the church.
