VH1 Save the Music Foundation: a non-profit organization dedicated to restoring instrumental music education in America's public schools, and raising awareness about the importance of music as part of each child's complete education. To date, the Foundation has provided more than $47 million in new musical instruments to 1,750 public schools in more than 100 cities around the country, impacting the lives of over 1.6 million children. http://www.savethemusic.com/
St. Jude Children's Research Foundation: St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance. No child is ever denied treatment because of the family’s inability to pay. http://www.stjude.org/
Thank you again for all of your love!

As we rounded the corner of the first three weeks of school, Carson has settled into the rhythm of his new school and Pre-K 4 class. He loves his new teachers, his buddies and his girlfriend Tiffany. Amidst a very busy schedule which includes: reading, math, computers, art, drama, music, spanish, gym, library, chapel and more, he somehow found the time to hold Tiffany's hand at recess!! Sweet.
He comes home to spend quiet time by himself with his library books and speaks new Spanish words every day. Sweeter.
He jumps out of bed every day, excited to go to school for a new adventure in learning. Sweetest.

Today was a gorgeous Spring day, so we decided to head over to Grandma Dorothy and Grandpa Fred's house for a visit. We hopped over to the VA Park for some serious play time.
Carson quickly found a new friend to play with and they headed over to the WWII tank to check it out.
Mia's favorite...the slide!
And for our children~an important rite of passage...figuring out how to escape through the doggy door. Go Mia!!!

When we arrived at school, we could see that sneaky little Leprechaun had been all over the place leaving his gold coins and tiny footprints in the magic dust. Carson was sure he would be able to catch him!
Today we celebrated her birthday :-)

Mia is not much of a TV watcher, but last week I was trying to catch up on an old episode of American Idol while Carson was napping and Mia parked herself on her bouncy turtle and tuned in! She sure loves her music, dancing and clapping at the end. Maybe this week she will learn how to dial in her vote!

This last Saturday, Carson had his first soccer game. Even though he took more diggers than we care to remember, he had a blast and finished his first game without a scratch. He even scored one goal (not that they keep score.) It is so fun to see three and four year olds burn tons of energy out there and as the game winds down, they are building dirt castles in the field, staring at the clouds and waiting for their lollipops at the end of the game. Sounds like fun to me!
