Can’t beat a “B” is for bubbles afternoon at Mrs. Paula’s!
Making bread with butter while studying the letter “B!”
They look like little birdies! Aww!
Snack time gets a thumbs up from these guys!
Mrs. Paula’s youngest son, Tanner, had a music lesson with the kids and played his base for them; They loved that!
Everyone in class had a bee that looked very similar to Will’s (left picture). Rose’s bee was unique (right bee)! Love that she marches to her own beat!
“C” is for caterpillar and cars!
“B” is for buttons (and sorting and a million other productive things) and “C” is for cooking and cookies!
When it rains, Mrs. Paula loves to let the kids go puddle jumping! She wants them to experience nature and life with all their senses, and it couldn’t be more perfect for our preschooler!
Will and Rose are definitely two peas in a pod. They are together in almost every picture Mrs. Paula takes! Funny thing is, we live 25 minutes away from Mrs. Paula’s school, and Will lives in our neighborhood! I am friend’s with his mommy, but he and Rose didn’t meet until school. And the rest is history…
Yummy “C” shaped cookies for snack time.
Two words: Drama Queen.
Petting patriot the puppy on puddle jumping day, wait, this was the “C” day! Mrs. Paula moves fast! You better keep up!
Art all day every day at pre-k!
Their fearless leader.
One day, Mrs. Paula said the kids gathered every single toy up and put them in the play land so they could pretend to be garbage collectors. See how they’re holding on to the back of the garbage truck with the handles?
What an awesome zoo day! Can’t thank Mrs. Paula and Mrs. Julie enough for sharing these days with our baby!
Back to school and more creative fun!
Some of my most treasured pieces of art!
Beginnings are scary, endings are sad… but it’s the middle that counts the most! (Hope Floats)
Hope you have enjoyed our middle with Mrs. Paula!

We were beyond ready for the show to start!
First up, “Roar!” which exceeded Cutie Kate’s expectations. I loved the way she looked at me every few seconds like, “Can you believe this is real life!?!” We were in heaven!
The Egyptian set, which included “Dark Horse,” cool costumes, and lots of acrobats!
Kitty Purry as Katy Perry. There were tons and tons of cat-themed things all throughout the concert. Anna Kate loved that!
Milk bucket challenge… so silly and fun!
My favorite, the acoustic set, with songs including, “By the Grace of God” “The One that Got Away” and “Unconditionally.”
Lol! I saw a picture of the floating blow-ups from one of her concerts last spring and knew this concert would just be too much fun! Anna Kate and I love silly humor, so we were both cracking up!
Then, she had a little girl come on stage for a bit, and she gave her a pizza to share with the audience around her. Anna Kate was so into everything! Of course, Katy made a big deal about wearing a cowgirl hat and being in Texas, which made us proud, lol!
“Birthday” and the only big balloons the song is talking about, right!?!
Fun hyper neon finale!
Time for prisms everywhere! The encore song was Anna Kate’s first favorite song ever, “Firework” which came out when she was one year old. I remember her dancing her little heart out to it on July 4th when she was two years old. That’s when I knew someday we would come to a concert together.
There were real fireworks and long solid strobe lights and blinking lights climbing up and down strings like spider webs all over the arena. With the 3D glasses on, it was just too cool! I don’t know how you could top this!
Such an awesome first concert date for our Cutie Kate!

After a crazy night of driving directly after a storm hit that knocked out power, trees and fences, we finally made it to the Katy Perry concert (after 3 1/2 hours in the car). Good thing we left right after school, and Mike detoured us off the highways 3 different times, or we would not have made it (and the first song of the concert was Anna Kate’s favorite, “Roar,” so we had to get there!). We wanted to people watch; That’s why we left so early for the concert. We didn’t get to meet as many fans as we had hoped, but the ones we met were awesome, fun, confident, happy, energetic, and alive!

Noelle, Ava, Kennedy, Carson, Samantha and Emily having fun at the football game!
I love watching Noelle cheer because she has so much fun! I caught this super sweet moment of Noelle and Emily during their break. So sweet!
Poppa and Rara finally got to come to a game! We were so happy to have them there! Rose just had to wear her “rainbow dress,” and she loved every minute she had it on! I love that kid. Ava, Madeline and Noelle are so lucky to be cheer friends and school friends too! They are sweeties!
Poppa and Rose and the plastic bag that couldn’t be put down, lol!
Noelle and Emily livin’ it up!
