Bikes, Kindergarten, and Fun!

Mark has had a bike for awhile, but recently my parents gave our quints their first big kid bikes.  The kids were SOOO excited!  Thank you Papa and G.G.!!

Ready to go!!

We practiced riding around a cul-de-sac.

After a few days, we were doing well enough going and stopping that we were ready to ride to the park!

I feel comfortable doing almost anything by myself with the kids, but I have been really nervous about taking them all for a bike ride.  They did great!  Everyone listened well and stayed together.  I think we will be riding a lot this summer!


I loved this picture of David.  Holding a big stick in one hand and a rolly polly in the other.  Total boy!  :)

Recently, I registered Mark for kindergarten.  That seems so hard to believe!  While I am not totally ready for that, he is so excited!


The school where he will go starting this fall had their annual carnival, and we all went.  It was so much fun!  We had dinner, played games, rode ponies, jumped in bouncy houses, etc.

Mark had ridden a horse before, but this was our quints' first time on pony rides.

Meeting "HEB Buddy"  HEB is the grocery store where we usually shop, and they are awesome!  At the carnival they gave a free bike helmet to every child!  Especially good timing for us since we had gotten bikes earlier that same day.


They won tickets when they played various games and got to turn them in for prizes at the end.

The kids' preschool had their family night recently, and the kids got to ride horses again!


All the classes have had family picnics this month.  One of the class activities has been watching caterpillars turn into butterflies.  Some of the classes released the butterflies at their picnics.

We love picnics!  Daddy met us one day for a picnic lunch at the park.

Mark's class got to plant seed and watch them start to grow.  He brought his home last week.  Rather than put it in with our green beans, we decided to let him have his own little garden in a pot.  He planted a couple more seeds and has been watering his plant.
