May Misc

This girl is loving her food

And this is the reason they made these seats start having a strap

Kate loves her Nene 
Practicing sitting up!
The moment when you go to check on the babies and realize it's time to pack up the activity mat 

Another day I went to check on them and Andrew was eating Kate's foot!
One morning James started yelling, "we need some help up here. It's an emergency." I ran up and found Kate like this, completely stuck under the crib.  It's official- these babies are on the move! And this post makes it sound like I don't watch them closely. I promise I try!
Code Brown!

We were trying out the new pool from Nana in our living room and Kate apparently thought she was supposed to lay back and sun bathe 

"Don't even think about messing with my sweet potatoes."
"Gimme that banana avocado combo STAT!"

Rebecca and Davis met us at the bouncy house play for a quick play date one Saturday

James wanted to enter the Lego magazine contest. This was his "beach" he created. I was impressed!

Date night! 

By far the BEST thing that happened this month was that James asked Jesus into his heart!  He had been asking questions for several months that made me think he was close to making this decision but I wanted to make sure he really understood. We had the most special conversation, he and I about what it means to follow Jesus, what we have to look forward to in heaven, and how to share Jesus with others. Afterwards we called Ryan to share the good news with him.  We wanted to do something to celebrate this so Ryan picked him out a new bible and we had a special family celebration the next day.  Of all the things my kids do that make me proud nothing comes close to the happiness I felt this day! 

For dessert he chose yogurt parfait. I love this kid!

Kindergarten Registration/Preschool Graduation

I can't believe it was already time for kindergarten registration and preschool graduation.  It is crazy to think that James is the age of the students I used to teach. Time has flown! I'm so thankful that I have had this extra year with James in the TK class at preschool. It gave us some much needed time to adjust to our new normal as a family but he is definitely ready now for kindergarten.  He is so excited about being a Bangert Bear!  

Registration night 

Soon after it was time for preschool graduation.  All the boys had to wear blue dress shirts, khaki and ties so I ended up having to go shopping. He sure looked handsome! 

Sweet girl 
It felt strange having the babies there. So thankful for the end of our quarantine time!

He had such great teachers this year 
Sweet Ms. Starlene met me every morning in the parking lot to get James and Harrison so I didn't have to get the babies out during flu/rsv season

So glad Granny Baker could be there
And of course Nene!
And Nana! 

When we got home we had a little celebration lunch and then I got a surprise cake from my wonderful mother-in-law for my birthday which was the next day!
