Shyanne Turns 4!

This is before you go in to dine w/ Shamu. As you can tell she was fascinated :) She still talks about going there to this day!

She just looks cute and innocent ;)

Ah yes it starts already!

Hiking w/ daddy

First few weeks at home.

I can't believe that 4 yrs. ago on April 21st I had Shyanne. She has been such a blessing in our lives and has brought us so much joy! Here are 4 things we love about her:

1. She is very sensitive and compassionate.
2. She has a good sense of humor and likes to make others laugh.
3. She loves learning and is always surprising us with things she's learned at preschool or church.
4. She is very sociable and loves making new friends.

Here's looking to many more happy and adventurous years!

Challenger Space Center

Before each "mission" the leader talks to the kids about the space shuttle, what happens when it blasts off, etc.
They have craft projects that go along with the planets and they had these cute space helmets the kids could make!

On April 14th I took Shyanne to the Challenger Space Center for kids space place. It's really cool they learn about a new planet each month and even get to simulate what it would be like to take off to the moon in the space shuttle. Shyanne loved it-sorry these pictures are a little blurry!

Proud Mommy Moment

For those of you who don't know I play the piano in Primary and it's been so much fun since Shyanne turned 3 and is now a Sunbeam! I get to see how she acts with her friends in class and see her learn new songs. Anyways on Sunday it was the Sunbeam class' turn to do opening exercises (prayer, scripture, talk) and they had the people to do the prayer and scripture, but no one to do the talk. I had just finished playing some prelude music when I glanced over at the Sunbeam class and didn't see Shyanne. Finally I looked up front and she was sitting in the chairs- she volunteered to give her first Primary talk! It was only a couple of sentences, but she did such an awesome job and we are so proud of her!
