A few weeks ago Luke had his "show day" at The Little Gym. He has loved this place, and it has been a wonderful weekly activity for the year. I had to work that day, so Tula was able to go, and then Daddy surprised Luke and showed up as well. So special! Here are pics from the day.

We had our follow-up ultrasound today to re look at the baby's brain and see if the cyst had resolved, and it had! The baby looked absolutely perfect, and we could see everything very clear. There is absolutely nothing to worry about, and we don't have to follow-up with the specialist again. While Brian and I weren't stressing too much, it was such a relief to get an official "all clear". This news comes at a time that definitely doesn't make me take it for granted. I recently had a sweet friend get pretty much the opposite news, that her baby more than likely has down syndrome. They are doing more testing to confirm, and we have been praying constantly for them. I can't imagine what they are going through. It definitely made me appreciate the news we received today, and to get on my knees thanking the Lord for this gift. You never know what this life will hand you, but I do know that whatever I am handed I can go through it with Him. Thank you Lord, for our precious perfect baby. We can't wait to meet this little one, and desire to raise them to seek you!

We went on our annual zoo trip to the Dallas Zoo this year. It happened to be Daddy's 31st Birthday weekend, so it was a perfect way to celebrate! We started the trip off with a camel ride. Luke was a little scared at first, but thought it was sooo cool once he was on.
I loved watching Luke get so into the animals.
My favorite part about this zoo, is that you are able to feed the giraffes. Luke was way into it, and Audrey was a little scared. I think one tried to lick her!
We were able to take in and elephant demonstration.
I was taking pictures of Audrey, and she looked at me and said, "No cheese". I guess she wasn't in a picture taking mood. What a little diva! ;)
We were a little disappointed, because the gorillas were all hiding. Just when we were about to leave, this guy shows his face! He walked right out into the open, and went straight for the window where Luke was. It was awesome!
This pic is hard to see, but the kids were soooo close to him.
The monorail is always a must at the zoo!
The monorail just wore Audrey out!
Crazy baboon guy right by the window. Very Lion King!
Taking a break with Daddy.
Tiger watching with Grandpa.
The weather was perfect, and we had such a wonderful time!

Thursday was Muffins with Moms at school and it was too cute. Luke was so excited to have me in his classroom. We got to sit down, enjoy some delicious muffins and he showed me all the fun things he made me. Here I am with the two who made me a mom. I am blessed!

A little performance with songs about moms.
Sweet gifts from my boy.

School is wrapping up for the year, and there have been no shortages of fun events. It seems like every week there is some fun new thing at Sunshine Kids. We absolutely love Luke's school and so does he!
First up was Cowboy Day. You know this boy loves a good dress up, so this was right up his alley.
Luke and his buddies from class. (all the boys)
They got to have a camp out in a tent and everything!
Enjoying some smores with his class.
I just love this precious picture that his teacher took!
Another fun event, was Bible Times Market Place. The school set up a market that would be similar to one when Jesus was alive. They sang songs, went fishing, made clay pots, and had fish sticks, cheese and olive. I was told my son spit out the olives... in his defense, he told me he thought it was a grape. :) Luke loved this day, and has told me repeatedly that what he learned that day was that "God is the potter, and we are the clay". Melt my heart!
Last week was a fundraiser to get new turf on the playground. It was a fun run, where Luke asked some very nice people (Tula, Nonnie, Aunt Ali and Aunt Tracy) to sponsor him in this "race". Audrey and I went out to support our little runner. Here they are at the starting line.
Luke took it VERY seriously!
A little collision didn't stop him!
Sweet boy at the finish and then below after receiving his medal.
Believe it or not, but more fun events are in store. Muffins with Moms and Beach are up next. Stay tuned!
