Emilia's Merit Certificate and Class Assembly

I'm way behind on pictures and just realized I had pictures from May on the camera! This was before Chris's parents came for a visit in July and August.  Emilia got a certificate of Merit at the assembly on  May 9th.

Then on August 1st, she had her class assembly.  And it was so well-timed that Chris's parents were here to attend!

Each class is responsible for a performance at the assembly throughout the year.  The teachers are so creative with the music and the outfits for the kids!  This year's theme was "People and Places Change over Time" with a special appearance from Marilyn Monroe and Elvis.  They sang "Time Warp" at the beginning and when they were changing the time.  The 1800s has piano music, 1900s had "Twist Again Like You Did Last Summer" and an Abba medley with the 2000s showcasing Katy Perry's "Firework".

Amber's Baby Shower

Baby Malachi was born this month but we had a baby shower in July celebrating him.  Here's the book I made for Amber (and Andrew).

Snapfish album

Yes, I used Snapfish so I could get it sent quickly to Australia even though I love Shutterfly for our yearly photobooks and you don't have to log-in to see the album.

Here are a couple of pictures.
