I start each week with good intentions.
Then Monday turns into Tuesday, and Tuesday turns into Thursday, and Thursday turns into the weekend…and thus passes another week without a new update. Needless to say, a lot has been happening since we last touched base.
The biggest news by far is that Lola turned three!!
Seriously though you guys…where does the time go? I hear it only gets faster 😥
The second biggest news has been fully committing to home schooling in the fall, which has been a relief that we’ve landed on our decision and added eagerness to finally jump in head first. We’ve even update our “craft” room with new tables and chairs from Ikea…
…and officially renamed it the Kindergarten room.
Other happenings include an evening out at Living History Farms for a 1900’s farm family style dinner…
…the tickets to which were a very thoughtful Christmas gift from my mom. Truly a unique experience!
Then Spring happened!
Speaking of my mom, Grammie Mona came through with new Easter dresses just in time for the big weekend. The crew was so excited that I couldn’t even get them to stand still long enough to take a decent picture.
No worries though, I got enough later 😉
The requisite egg hunt was a blast, and the weather was nothing short of perfect.
Backyard beautifying continued; we bought and planted a new tree,
…and a new planter to boot…
…while the rest of our plantings from last year started showing up left and right.
We also made a new table for bonfires!
Finally, the girls and I created this awesome video for the best Mommy anyone ever ask for (that I have to repost a new version here because I noticed a few flaws in the first cut, and I’m nit-picky like that.)
And that’s all for this whirlwind update! I’m sure I’m missing a few things here and there, but you get the gist.
On to new adventures…catch you in August for the next post 😉
