In this photo, Cale has on 7 wrist bands. He wore them all day.
2. Our preschool. I love that they give all their graduates a Bible with their name on it for graduation. And, it's not a little kids Bible-it's the grown-up version for them to treasure and read from when they're ready. I also loved that they gave each of the graduates a specific award. Marcus's was that he remembers all the prayer requests when it's his turn to say the prayer. How sweet is that! His teacher said that Marcus has a kind heart!

Got the boys mentos rockets yesterday. They work by dumping mentos into a bottle of diet soda. There's supposes to be a huge spray of soda up into the air, which, theoretically, would propel a foam rocket into the sky. We did not acheive optimal results with our rockets for this first launch. The boys got a kick out "helping" Andy set up the rockets and enjoyed seeing the foam shoot out of the bottles of coke.
By clicking on the picture above, you should be able to see all the photos we have from the preschool program on Tuesday night. The theme was "Under the Sea" and highlighted stuff the kids had learned the past few months about the ocean and marine life. Marcus is wearing sunglasses as part of his "costume" (think beach-wear).
Cale did great, too. He participated in all the songs. He also waved to us and called "Hi Mommy, Hi Daddy!" everytime he glanced at us
Here is a photo of Marcus with his cap and gown on. As soon as the program was over, he took the cap and gown off and refused to put them back on-too hot! Truly his father's son :-)
We taped the program as well. One day, I may figure out how to upload it to the computer and edit it so everyone can see the live-action version of graduation. But, don't keep your fingers crossed for anytime soon! :-)

We took a little trip to Ball State today so that Andy could get a feel for the layout of the campus, get a parking permit, and so we could get out of the house after a day of constant rain yesterday. First, we looked at a map to figure out where we were.

That's right! Today was IUK's graduation. I checked my online transcript to make sure my degree was now listed-it was (let me say that the degree was not listed last night and I was a little nervous that I had forgotten to take a class or something and wouldn't get my degree). I graduated "with distinction" which I assume is kind of like "with honors".
Instead of going to graduation, we had an appointment for the Nielson Media people to come out and hook up instruments to our televisions so they can monitor what programs we watch. We think this will be fun, and finally a way for those under-viewed tv shows (which are usually the ones we like) to get the attention they deserve. Although, we did tell the installer "they'll see we watch a lot of Disney and Nickelodeon".
