It has been about a month since I’ve shared an update and I’m not quite sure how time flew by so quickly. Every mama I know says spring is like a tornado of all the things to do and I’m right there too. Between work, school, church, and fun, we have been soaking in all the fun and staying super busy.
Heres a little peek at life lately…
Finally towards the end of April, the sun started coming out! So we celebrated one night with burgers at our favorite spot. Abi and I road tripped with Ste to our 10th annual palace reunion in Stillwater, OK.
I love these women so darn much. Park dates with friends are such a sweet spot in our spring. Every night after dinner, we go on a family walk around the block. I love this view. Our big girls had their Spring Concert at school and sang their little hearts out!Daddy has squeezed in date nights with his girls over the last few weeks. He makes them swoon. And spoils them rotten…Oh hey pretty.
More park dates after school! This was after a particularly rough week of the stomach bug taking us down one by one…Our sweet ones had a lemonade stand and our neighbors helped run it. Can you believe they made 40 dollars?!?! They were so excited to give it all away to their school building fundraiser.
Daddy hung a rope swing in the tree for our ninja warriors in training.
We hosted Sunday night dinner a few last times for our Cru at KU students. You would be gobsmacked at how fast this food disappears.
And on Cinco De Micah our little boy turned THREE. How in the world is that possible. He was a baby just yesterday. He didn’t want a party this year. He just wanted to go to the zoo and have an ice cream cake. So our fam, JuJu, and sweet C spent a fun day at the zoo seeing all the animals.
Dad and I bought Micah laser guns for his birthday. So naturally, Micah went with Josh to Cru on campus and played laser gun tag all night long. He is obsessed.
Grammy and Grandpa made Bub’s bday complete and brought his favorite puppy, Sophie, with them to celebrate.
Juju treated us to coffee on campus before she headed home after a fun weekend.
My favorite people in the world.
Ruth and Lydia had last Monday off school so we had a fun family day at home. I should note that I had NO IDEA they had the day off because I’m responsible like that. So they had to inform me the day of…
This precious one turns 6 tomorrow! We got her an off-brand fit bit and gave it to her early. She’s been running in literal circles around the house trying to get her step count as high as possible.
We leave the country in 11 days and we will be gone through July. So our weeks have been packed FULL of appointments: dentist, doctor, haircuts, specialists, etc. The only perk of them is the fun treats we get afterwards for good behavior. Yesterday sweet Ru got her 2nd filling like a champ so Abi and I treated her to a vanilla steamer. (I’ll post a summer update in the next few days!)
Occasionally, I get completely overwhelmed by the giant summer ahead of us and Josh sends me away for a few hours to get my head on straight and fill my body full of caffeine.
Our Ru girl got to give a report on a First Lady (Louisa Adams) at school this week in front of 1-6th graders. She was fabulous. How cute are these kiddos?!?
Well, I think we are all caught up. This is my view this morning while I update the blog and wait to go get Bitty for a less than pleasant appt she has scheduled today. Her reward for good behavior is going to be doing a Breakout Room with friends later so fingers crossed she doesn’t bite or punch the doc! (when she was three she spanked a doc and demanded her money back, so….)
