It's been BABY week at my house! A splurge of little ones have been needing their pictures taken, from roly-poly 6 months old to just a few days old. These are the best appointments...I get to hold babies, take their pictures and make new friends with the mommies. This newest member of the world is Meagan...isn't she precious?

Nothing better than a girls day at the spa. Our toes look so


Yesterday was the last day of school! The reactions were totally oppposite let me tell you. First the kindergarteners came out and about 10 of them were in complete tears! Including mine. Us parents eagerly waiting for them were in shock...they weren't happy to be out of school at all! I thought taking my little one's picture with her favorite teacher would help bring a smile but as you can see, she still felt sad. It made me feel sad too for her. On the other end, my fifth grader and all his friends let out a huge holler as they left elementary school for the last time. This made me feel sad too. Middle school is just a few months away now. How do they grow up so fast? My second grader was just low key, happy for summer but would be happy to be in school too. She'll see her friends a lot I'm sure as she keeps up with the social events. So here we are, first day of summer and it's cold. Looks like a good day for pedicures!

Isn't she beautiful?
I always loved the eyes of arab women and I got the chance to photograph this senior girl over the weekend. She lived in the country of Jordan for two years before coming back to Yankton. I just can't get over the eyes and the story they tell. Pretty cool for a 17 year old.

The month is May has officially become one of the busiest months for our household. Which explains my lack of blogging. But finally, I have a precious few minutes to catch up a bit. The big dance performances were last weekend and they were a hit. We have had practices, rehearsals, games, etc literally every night of the week for the past month. So combining that with school projects, my race training and people needing picture appts, the month has flown by. The girls played soccer too this spring and seemed to really enjoy another aspect totally opposite from dance. Now things are calming down a bit and school ends tomorrow. Then the real fun begins!

I opened my mailbox to find the return addressed envelope I sent to Brett Favre and here it is! Signed, sealed and delivered. It even smelled of the sharpie marker still. 4 months later and Brett pulled through. I was so excited, I called my husband at work and said, "Guess what came in the mail today?" He answered, "Our check from President Bush." I said it's better than that, it's Brett Favre!

So tonight we are going to give this big surprise to the biggest Packer fan I know. And I gotta tell you, after all this anticipation, I can hardly wait!
