School's Out!

Woo Hoo! It's the last day of 1st grade!!  What a full & FUN year for our biggest boy!
The soon-to-be 2nd, 3rd, and 6th graders!
Papa, Tate, & I picked up the kids after school and it was fun to see their excitement.  I totally remember that last day of school feeling! (:
Sadie liked showing off her baby cousin to her friends.
 Phillip & Ronan
Buen trabajo, Ronan!  Estamos muy orgullosos de ti!!
Memaw & Papa planned an awesome "School's Out" party after school for all the kids, including pizza, a giant cookie, games, goodies, & bubble fun!  (Tyler's friend, Drew, go to come.)
Looks like Papa's head is in the bubble. (;
Tate joined in on some gaming (;
That evening our family went to dinner to celebrate the end of school and Ronan's good report card (a Hecht family tradition). (:

Preschool Promotion

Griffin's end-of-the-year preschool performance & promotion was on June 14th.  He sure loved his first year of preschool, and being in the same class as Finley!  It was fun for us to see how much he learned and grew this year, especially in his confidence level!  Way to go, Griffin!  We are so very proud of you!
Miss Debby said something special about each child, including an acrostic for their names.

Ethan & Macey's class was up next.  They did a great job of singing!!
Congratulations, Macey & Ethan!
Great Grandpa Lermo happily held Tate the whole time...
...even when he was wiggly. (:
Cohen's class was the last to perform.  In the fall he'll be off to kindergarten!
The wonderful Miss Debby
The Novemberists
They loved being at preschool together and carpooling to Memaw & Papa's house after school. (:  They are such good buddies! 
Griffin looks excited! (:

Mike's Visit

Papa's life-long best buddy, Mike, came to visit for the weekend while Mom was in California for cousin Natasha's college graduation.  While he was here, Mike wanted to make his famous sub sandwiches for all of us after church.  Of course we thought that was a great idea! (:  What a treat!
After lunch, the boys played some Frisbee--(Griffin remembered playing Frisbee with Mike during his last visit.) (:

Tate- 7 months!

Ahh, this smile just melts my heart! 
Those cheeks. Those lips. That nose. I love.
Ronan is such a fantastic big brother!  He is helpful and gentle and sweet.  I love these pictures of the two of them!
Fingers & Toes
Soon Griffin joined in on the photo shoot. (:  He is very playful with Tate and is always willing to bring him toys and help entertain him.  I'm so thankful that these three are such good buddies already!
Happy 7 months, Tate!  You bring so much JOY to our lives!
