Ave's First Day of Pre-School

This was one of the many things they did in class that Ave brought home. Paint with bubbles!!
This face cracks me up!! (And Avery tells me mom you crack me up) I got nothing on her!!

The star in her backpack!!

This was Ave's 1st assigment. She had to put pictures, word & things that she likes on her star to share with the others kids so they could get to know one other better. She had the best time picking stuff out for her star.

Here is Avery withher new backpack on!!

She was so excited on her 1st day!!

Avery started Shining Star Pre-School yesterday!! Her teacher is Miss Hilary. She runs a preschool out of her home and she only lives like 2 house down from us!! Can you say perfect!! Avery has been asking to go to preschool for almost over 2 weeks now every day she would ask me "Mom can we go to pre school please!!" It has been cute but also really hard after she ask you 10 times in one hour!! So she was way excited to get up and get dresses in her new school clothes and get her backpack down. We went shopping for a backpack a couple days before and it was kinda hard to find anything would fit a 3 yr old. But just as we were ready to go home we stopped one last time and found her this super cool capri sun backpack that fits just perfect. She was so happy that she jumps up and down with excitment each time she wears it. Her first assigment was to decorate the star with things that she likes and things about her. So we got a few magazine out and looked at all the pages and found some things that she wanted to put on there. She really enjoyed doing it. Plus it was kinda fun for me too. And it helped the other kids get to know her. She had a fun find day as she got to know all her classmates and learned the rules of the class. Plus she also got to make her own pizza and made her favorite toy out of play dough. She can wait for tomorrow to go back and play some more. I am so happy that she is loving the school thing plus it helps her learn and play with other kids a mothers dream!!

Beautiful Views

Ok so here is me standing in front of the house that my great great great grandpa Warren McBride built and lived in. It is no longer owned by anyone in the family. Just right next to the barn.

These are such beautiful views of all the acres that they farm!! (They kept 45 acres)

McBride Barn & Farm

Hyrum, 1925

So after talking to my cousin Gina at our family reunion I found out that we had a little piece of history just down the street. Come to find out my Great Grandma June and all her family are from the Hyrum area and helped found the city. And this is the barn that Warren McBride built in 1925. We came to take a look around and get some pic's and lucky for us Madelyn McBride was there. She was so sweet and nice and let us look all around. She and her husband are the caretakers of the barn and farm. We are related and it was so nice to get to know her and hear all the family history. I feel so blessed that the barn and farm have been able to be kept in the family. I think it so wonderful that I have the opportunity to go and see the land and touch what they worked so hard to build. What a great feeling I had as I walked around the farm. What a great experience it was!!
