I know it’s been a long while since I last posted. Things got busy with school ending, etc.
Here’s an update of some P365. Some of these photos on not on the actual day, but they represent the right time frame in the life of our family, so I’m justifying it that way!
Day 136: The flowers in our yard this Spring have been so beautiful!
Day 137: In about a total of 90 seconds of me blow-drying my hair, Sadie did this in her brother’s room with markers not labeled “washable”. Thankfully after a little while playing in the bathtub, it all came off. She was very proud of it, though!
Day 138: Daddy and his sweet girl!
Day 139: Claire’s Kindergarten graduation. Each class sang one song, then they sang one all together. They also got their scrapbooks. It was adorable, and I can’t believe my little girl will now be in 1st grade!
Day 140: Today was a 1/2 day at school, and we decided the previous afternoon to go to the lake to stay the night. So it didn’t take much convincing for the kids to think it was okay to “skip” the last 1/2 day of school. Instead, Daddy took all three into town to run a few errands, one of which was going to our friend’s house and getting Claire’s hair cut. Our friend, Barbara, did such a beautiful job, and Claire was so sassy with that hair the rest of the weekend!
Day 141: Up at the lake, Wes spent quite a bit of time designing a campground. You would even believe how detailed this thing is. I got a picture of it here, but he later colored it. It was really incredible!
Day 142: Sweet sisters!
Day 143 & 144: I took the kiddos down to our backyard beach while Sadie was napping. They had a good time digging in the sand and playing around in the water.
Day 145: The older two had Vacation Bible School this week in the evenings. I took this photo of all three one afternoon before they went. They had such a great time at VBS!!!
Day 146: Sadie had swimming lessons this week. I wouldn’t necessarily say she’s a swimmer at this point, but she did very well and had such a great time. She really loved Miss Lyn!
Day 147: The cousins came up to the lake to play for a few hours. Here’s Chandler ready to go tubing! (Never was able to get a pic of Danielle. :-< )
Day 148: I’m so terrified of rattlesnakes at the lake right now. Hubby killed one a couple weekends ago that was almost 5 feet long. This -now headless- pigme rattlesnake (which I explained to the kids is just as deadly as a big one) was resting in the shade under the tractor in the path that my kids run down all the time, barefooted, to go swim down at the lake. Seriously, this whole snake thing has made me lose some sleep. Ugh!
Day 149: May 30th was mine and hubby’s 13th Anniversary!!! Gosh that makes us sound old! My parents kept our kids the night before, so we drove over to Destin and had a really nice dinner at PF Changs (YUMMO!) and got a few fun little things (nice sunglasses for me; swim/fish shorts for hubby) at Bass Pro Shop. Then we drove back to the lake for the night.
Day 150: This is our anniversary. My parents were still keeping the kiddos for the day, so we just enjoyed the day at the lake together. Our sweet neighbors brought us breakfast, which is kinda turning into tradition. Hubby has made it for them for their last two anniversaries, and now they’re returning the favor; and it was SO DELISH! Throughout the day, we relaxed and/or worked separately some (I’ll let you figure out who did what), and then also went 4-wheeling, golf-cart riding, and jet-skiing together. It was a really nice day. Here’s hubby on the tractor (just after killing the snake that was under it), doing some work around the property.
So, while it’s been a busy few weeks, it’s also been really good!
Hope to be back soon and not be gone so long next time!
