What's new with Jake

Such a whirlwind time for Jadyn between preschool graduation, her 5th birthday and last weekend's dance recital that I thought I should let everyone know what Jake has been up to....

Winning an award at school for reading at or above grade level during the last trimester:

Being named an outstanding author at the school's annual Authors and Artists showcase:

Getting his picture in the paper while playing basebal (that's him running the bases in the top set of pictures)l:

Receiving a belated but much beloved birthday gift from Cruz; his very own set of military camis. Cruz even had a name tape put on them that says "Jake". He loves to dress up and play "soldier":

Having a blast at his school's field day. I was so excited that his new school does this as I have very fond memories of end of the year field days from my days in elementary school. I volunteered to help and got to man the miniature golf. They also had an obstacle course, tug-of-war, splash basketball, jump rope contest, frisbee throwing and much more. It's a great way to celebrate the end of the year:

Three more days of school and Jake will officially be promoted to second grade! He has done so well in school this year. I am so proud of all he has accomplished, I just wish I knew where the year had gone. It flew by!

He's been keeping busy, hasn't he?

LOL, I love the fact that his gun is a long as he is tall. And the digiphlage is awesome!

Way to go, Jake! I know you are super proud of all of his accomplishments.

That's really neat that he was in the newspaper!
