A big week at the Swarthout house!

Last week was a big week here at our house.

To start the week off, Riley got stitches! He was swimming in the pool at a friend's house and got struck under the eye by a rubber torpedo. I took him to the ER where he received 6 stitches! He was so brave, didn't shed one tear when we were at the hospital, even though he was very nervous. I was so proud of him!.


Next came Bella's graduation from preschool! I can't believe my baby is almost 5 and going into kindergarten!! The kids all had cute little caps and sang a few songs before receiving their "diplomas". What made the evening more special was that Bella had 3 special guests at her graduation; her auntie Carrie, her cousin Chase, and family friend Jenn Climer.
Here is a video of Bella receiving her diploma.

It was also Riley's last week of 3rd grade! They had a pirate party, water party, watched movies and basically had a lot of fun that last week. Riley loved his third grade teacher, she was awesome! But he is looking forward to being a 4th grader.Riley as a pirate and on his last day of school

Now that summer is officially here and it is finally getting HOT here in Paso, we are spending and lots of time in the pool. Come by and see us sometime! We would love to have you!
