Mota-Vational Quotes

  • "Life isn't about how to survive the storm but how to dance in the rain!"
  • "The happiest people don't always have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have."
  • "Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."

Kicking Off Summer

On Preston's last day of school he wanted to have all of his friends over for a little fun in sun! We decided to have a party for all of his friends at our house to kick off Summer. He was SO excited to have everyone over! We had envisioned a little splash party with water guns and water toys. The weather was a bit cooler than we'd anticipated, but it didn't stop these kids from having fun! They would splash around, get wet and then run inside and sit by the fireplace. They were pretty cute! We had some delicious BBQ, some adult and children beverages and several desserts brought by other mommies. We really had a great time and Preston loved every minute of it! This was really a special group of kids. He made some great little friends! Hopefully we can stay in touch with some of them and watch them all grow. This year flew by! Let Summer 2015 begin!

Preston Graduates Pre-K

Its hard to believe that Preston's first year of school is already over! He had such a great class at Sunshine Kids Preschool! he loved his teachers Ms. Deb and Ms. Julie and made so many new friends! We are really going to miss seeing all these kids together next year! They had a cute little graduation ceremony last week. Preston's mommy, daddy, sister, mimi and papa all were able to attend. They sang cute songs, recited Bible verses they learned throughout the year and all walked across the stage to get a diploma. As they walked they were each asked to say what they want to be when they grow up. Preston walked proudly and spoke with confidence into that microphone! He said he wants to be, "A Knight"! It was super cute and we couldn't have been more proud of our sweet boy! Love you to the moon and back Preston! And you can be whatever you want to be when you grow up!

Beach Day

During Preston's last week of Pre-K they had a Beach Day. The kids all got to wear swimsuits and they had all kinds of fun water activities for them. I was able to volunteer to help. I was stationed at the water slide, which was Preston's favorite station. I had a great time watching Preston with his friends. He really had a great day!
