preschool graduation [mini film]

yesterday was such a fun little milestone for our family.  everly had a blast & every moment was just so sweet.  everly got to pick out where we ate, the music we listened to, and the movie we watched last night.  Panda Express, Jack's, Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2, and Elf was all a part of this epic experience.  here's a little look into our day...

moments I will hold on to...
car karaoke with my favorites
her last little swing down the steps at her school with her daddy
her nona's tears as she came down the aisle with her classmates
the moment I saw her 'teacher' sign as her future profession
sweet hugs from her first teachers who had her loving school every day
thoughtful and adorable gifts, and how much she appreciates them
scooping up every last bite of blue cheese dressing with her urban fries
snuggles while watching our favorite christmas movie in may

and just like that, preschool days are done

man alive. that was fast. they say it, I know...but really, preschool is already done and in the books. thankfully I get to keep her a little bit tiny due to her november birthday, meaning she's off to TK in the fall, and then kindergarten the year after that. and really, that seems like something I need to keep my mother heart from breaking completely.

I have so many moments to share from preschool graduation today, but for now, here are a few of our 'last day' of preschool photos. because I'm tired, and apparently can't really put much more into words right now.
and as you can see, everly's writing has really taken off this year
and yes, that is a family portrait at the bottom
here was her on the first day of preschool

feeling thankful [mini film]

right now, I have many things to be thankful for, including only three 4-day work weeks for the rest of this school year! and then year ten of teaching is in the books, and I'm a stay at home mom for two months!!!  ev and I are already practically summer mode.  we have been swimming a ton, going to the river, been to fairytale town three times in two weeks, and I can't count how many times she has squeezed my hand lately just thanking me.  thanking me for a fun day, for being her mom... the thankful cuteness is just overwhelming right now, so I'm going to soak up this moment real hard. while working on our mother's day gifts, I stumbled upon some footage I never touched from our trip to san diego this past february. so here's a look at one of our days with our friends, and the only footage I took of our time there, I was getting over a cold and clearly not feeling like picking up my camera. so, I'm thankful for at least this little bit.

McCartney [one month]

it has been a while since I've had the opportunity to photograph a newborn, so getting to spend some time with this little lady has been more than enjoyable.  I now get what people mean when they say how nice it is to hold a baby, and then give it back when it starts to cry.  yes, I'm totally in the mode, and it works quite well for me!

here's little McCartney at one month old!
