Last day of pre-K

I thought I would catch everyone up from the last month. So here goes:
We visited Bella in Lubbock. (And Andrea and Malachi.)
Phoenix and Dave got drug off to jail in Uncle Nick's police car.
Phoenix's last day of school.
The teacher's gift I made for Phoenix's teacher.
I thought I would post a picture from his first day of school.
Sequoia and Bridger on the last day of school.
Phoenix is ready for his last day of pre-k.
Phoenix and his teacher, Mrs. McHenry.
Phoenix and Miss Vickie.
Phoenix really did love pre-k and he has grown so much. Not just physically but emotionally and mentally. He's learning to read and sound out letters, he's learned how to count forwards and backwards, how to count objects, how to color in the lines, how to use scissors properly, and a whole score of other things. He's learned to not depend on Mommy for everything which I think has boosted his self-confidence. Pre-school really was good for him. I'm glad we live right next door to a wonderful school.
I'm writing this after finding out on Sunday that my mom suffered a stroke during church. She is currently in ICU but is progressing well. She is weaker on the right side but can move it, she can speak but is having trouble finding words, she can eat now and actually walked today. It's all been very nerve-wracking and a total shock and surprise. She has always been very healthy and it is hard for me to think of my mom in the hospital. I'm hopeful that she will make a full recovery and I thank Heavenly Father for the wonderful mother he has blessed me with. I would be nothing without her. It reminds me of the quote, "All that I am I owe to my mother."

Wow. I hope your mom is okay. Jason Molen (Brenna's husband) just had a stroke last week too. CRAZY. I'm glad your mom seems to be doing better. Hang in there girl.
