So it's the end of the school year and things are, like always, crazy. Last Thursday night we celebrated Taylor's FFA accomplishments at the end of year banquet. I didn't realize my camera battery was dead until I pull it out to snap a few shots so I apologize for the terrible camera phone (from a distance and in bad lighting) pics. ;-)

She earned her Greenhand Degree this year... addition to being on the Greenhand Chapter Conducting and Dairy Cattle Teams. AND she was chosen to represent Midway at the FFA state convention this summer. So proud of this girl, friends.

And then on Monday, she was recognized at the Middle School Academic Awards Ceremony for the two FFA teams as well. She even wore a dress!

In other big news, Paw Paw went shopping last Friday and Tiny is now sleeping in her very own room. And on a mattress that is probably nicer than my own. :-)

First crib nap was a huge success - 3.5 hours. I repeat - 3.5 hours. Do you have any idea how much stuff I was able to get done during that time? I've been super sad to see her leave our room but it was time and I've definitely slept better not hearing her rustling. She's a mover and a shaker. 

 Nana and Boppy went shopping too and her sweet bedding should be here this weekend. Cannot. Wait.

My current favorite addition to the nursery. For obvious reasons.

And not to leave our other girl out, Dottie headed to the vet last week and got her first pedicure. She was quite clearly thrilled. And has refused to speak to Dave since, which is kind of hilarious.

In case you were wondering, yes, Tonto is smitten with Tiny. Not sure I can state it better than this picture. 

So that's the Reader's Digest version of what we've been up to. Crazy, busy, beautiful, sometimes exhausting life. And allergies. So. Many. Allergies. But why talk about that, right?
