our graduate

So I'm a little behind on this post. Caley has officially finished her kindergarten year of school. She had a great time at Jay Shideler Elementary with Mrs. Barrett as her teacher. They had a little program a couple weeks before school was our where all the kindergarten classes sang some songs and then each child told what they wanted to be when they grow up and why. When is was Caley's turn she went to the microphone and said:

My name is Caley Hinkle.

When I grow up I want to be a princess because I like make-up.

After the program we were able to go back to her class and watch their class video which had all the mom's needing a tissue or two. So all in all we had a great year and Caley has learned a lot and so have David and I. Our learning will continue as we step into first grade at a new school Farley Elementary. We are really excited about this and Caley is too knowing that a lot of her friends will be there too.
This is Caley's teacher Mrs. Barrett. She's a great teacher and loves the Lord which we are so thankful for! We are looking forward to the upcoming school year but for now we are enjoying the summer!

our garden in june

About a month ago I posted some pics of our garden. This week we were able to pic our first zucchini squash and some lettuce. They were great! Although if you read my post from earlier Blake thought the lettuce tasted like dirt. Anyway I'm super excited about having some fresh produce this summer, hopefully we'll have plenty to share with our friends.

tastes like dirt

Yesterday at dinner the kids were eating and I said to them, "Hey guys, you want to try some of the lettuce it's from our garden?" They both say, "sure." Caley puts hers in her mouth and chews hers up and then spits it back on her plate. Blake puts his in his mouth, chews a couple times, then he looks at me and says, "hmmm, kinda tastes like dirt."
