Corrected My Picture Problem

Here are some of the pictures that I was trying to share in a larger size. Enjoy!

Strawberry Patch

Last week the girls and I went to pick strawberries with our dear friends, Angie and Amy and their children, Will, Noah and Leila. It was a beautiful day. It was a little hot, but still nice. The strawberries were delicious! Anna Belle ate a few as we were picking. I can't be sure if the owner appreciated that very much but oh well. We then grabbed an ice cream at Mc D's and played at the park for a while. It was fun to catch-up with my friends and the children enjoyed playing together as well! I am so very thankful for the friends that God has placed in my life!

Dance & Preschool

Why are some of my pics small and some of my pics are big? I can't be sure, but I hope you can enjoy them anyway!

Last fall my dear little Elizabeth started her first year of preschool. She attended St. Andrews Preschool in Nags Head. Last fall I also began working at the Preschool in the parents-morning-out program on T and Th mornings from 9-12. The WONDERFUL thing about this is that Anna Belle comes to work with me and has made some wonderful new friends and has learned to share and play with other children her age. I have also made some wonderful new friends. It has been GREAT! I am very thankful that God has put this opportunity into our lives. The year is coming to a close. The last day of preschool is coming soon. Next year I will be working there again, Anna Belle will come with me to class and Elizabeth will have one more year of Preschool before she goes to kindergarten, which is good for me b/c I am not quite ready for the kindergarten thing.

Elizabeth also began ballet lessons last fall at Island Dance. She has very much enjoyed it and has also made some new friends. Dance for the year was right after preschool on Wednesdays which made it a little rushed, but the fun thing is that I would pack Elizabeth's lunch for her and we would picnic with our friends before dance. That was really fun and we made many memories. One of her very special friends is Emma who we would picnic with every week. The recital was just this past weekend and it was fun. Elizabeth was SO excited to be on stage and wanted to be on stage again and again! She LOVED it. Maybe we will dance again next year.

Summer is coming!

It Has Been a While

So, it has been since Easter that I have updated my blog. A few fun things have happened in the Bevins household since then. I guess I will start with our new fish! I have really, really bad allergies. I am allergic to cats and even some dogs, so we do not have pets. However, sometime in April we decided it would be fun for our children if we got some fish as pets! We went to Wal-Mart and Elizabeth picked out a lovely 2.5 gal purple tank w/ pink n purple rocks for the bottom. We also purchased the greenery for the tank and the chemicals, food, etc that you need to keep it clean. This was fun. Then Winfield took Elizabeth to the pet store to pick out the fish! She was SO excited. Anna Belle had fallen asleep by this time. Ha, ha. We now have 4 silver fish, can't be sure what they are called but their names are: Rainbow, Sparkle, Dorothy and Nemo. They are STILL living and seem very happy on the dresser in Elizabeth's room. I hope they keep living. We are official pet-owners. Our Anna Belle is a dog lover. She sleeps w/ 4 stuffed-animal doggies every night. One day when our budget allows, we can get something like a poodle that does not shed and will not bother my allergies. That will be a happy day for Anna Belle! Until then, the fish will have to do!
