Busy Busy Time For Us


First of all life has been so hectic around here. Maybe not for the kids but it has been for me. I have three more weeks left in my blogging internship on Mom Giveaways! I don't where time went. If you want to check it out I have tons of info on all kinds of aspects of doing sweepstakes! It has been fun!

So going back a month ago, Jed turned 8 years old! Crazy to think my little 5lb baby is now 8 years old. On JuneBlogger: Forever Johnson - Create Post 6th he was baptized! Yay! He was so excited. We had a lot of family and friends there. He and another little girl were baptized the same day. Okay and get this her last name is Hopkins. Funny isn't it! On the left is a picture of Jed and Charles.

Now going back to May 13th. Jed and Elise had a concert. Jed is in the Mapleton Children's Community Choir and Elise is in New Beginnings. If you don't know it, Jed LOVES, LOVES, LOVES to sing! He is always singing. At the end of school this year his 2nd grade teacher gave him an award that said "The Next American Idol". When he came home with that I asked him why she gave him that. He said she liked his voice. I then asked are you always singing in class? He said "Yes!". I don't know why this is a surprise at all to me since I have to tell him to quit singing in his bed or he will wake Ian up!

Anyway back to May 13th. Jed and Elise had a concert that was held in the Prove Tabernacle. They did great! Here are two videos! They both include Jed having two solos and Elise with a speaking part! It was really fun!





The only thing that has happened other than these is that school ended. With school ending came kindergarten graduation for Elise. I forgot my camera at her graduation so we do not have a picture. Now here is my personal opinion about kindergarten graduation...it is dumb and a waste of time! We did preschool graduation which I think is great but other than high school and maybe junior high I think kindergarten graduation is just dumb. We crowded into a very hot cafeteria to see all the kindergartners sin songs and then we went home. They didn't get their diplomas until the next day. So those are my two cents for what they are worth. Of course despite my feelings Elise did fabulous!

So I think this post is long enough! I am hoping to update it more than once a month! You can check out my blog Danielle's Journey and of course Mom Giveaways. There you will be able to see what I am doing each day!

Those videos were so cute!! I love your kids! And I agree with you about Kindergarten Graduation. Although we did get little trophy things this year with their pictures on them, their names, year and all that stuff. I wish they would have them stand a little longer with the Principal and the teacher so you can get a picture. My mom was here for Aaron's and we were able to attend. But otherwise - it was 3 songs and that's it. Pointless!

IDK if we are coming up now or not for the 4th. I am starting a summer job on the 23rd until the end of August. So I'll have to see what my schedule looks like. I'll let you know for sure though soon. Love you!

This is so sweet. I love the clips! Thanks for putting them on here for us to enjoy.
The Sunbeams were so sweet today, I am so pleased they haven't found anyone else to teach them, because I still get to.
Teaching the Laurels went wonderfully, I am so happy that I have my first lesson under my belt!
