Here is Ian with his teacher Miss Lici. She has been great. Ian has loved going to school everyday. He has learned to recognized all his letters and numbers, to write all of his letters and numbers, and is now working on sounds. He also comes home each day with some new rhyme or song that Miss Lici has taught them.
On Saturday we went to the Alpaca Festival. Dave has always had a secret desire to live in the country and raise Alpacas. I must admit they were very cute-so soft and fuzzy. They didn't seem very friendly though. Every time Ian tried to pet one they ran away -at least they didn't spit. There were a few for sale and they were going for about $16,000.00! I guess their fleece is really valuable and you can make a lot of money off of it, but I think if we ever live in the country we might have to get a llama instead.

For Memorial Day we went down Salem to visit my Grandma Lee's grave. We met up with my Grandpa, my family, and my Aunt Sharee's family. It was neat to see everybody together and know how happy that would have made Grandma. It has been almost a year since she passed away and I still miss her so much. I'm sure she was most happy about the great grand kids running around the cemetery playing together.
After we visited the cemetery we went to my cousin Jessie's house. We had a fabulous BBQ and the cousins got to play together while the adults sat around a visited. I have such great memories of hanging out with my cousins when I was growing up, and it was so fun to see our kids playing together and hopefully building the same kind of fun memories. Thanks-Jessie, Cory, Sharee, and Craig.
