I can’t believe that February is more than half over!! Time sure flies when you’re having fun!! This was a very busy, but fun week.
Last Saturday Emma and I went with Liz and all the girls to see the Hasty Pudding show at Harvard. We had dinner in Harvard Square first and then stopped off for a drink before the show began
It’s crazy that Emma and Ally are old enough to go to the shows (and bars) with us now.
We had front row
Monday I introduced Beck to the potty. I surprised him with the potty book and the potty and he was actually excited about it. He stripped down to nothing and spent the entire day peeing on the potty. Of course, we had a plumber show up that day so that was a little interesting. Ha! He did a great job all day but hasn’t sat on it since!
Tuesday I took Megan prom dress shopping. I LOVE LOVE LOVE shopping for prom dresses! I’m not even kidding. Her dress is PERFECT!
Wednesday was Valentine’s
It was also Senior night at the basketball game
It makes me want to cry!! I can’t believe she is graduating and going off to college!
Thursday we had Lucy’s 4th grade chorus concert
Off to Middle School next year. Yikes!!
I finished the week off by going to the spa. Liz gave me a gift certificate for my birthday over a year ago but I hadn’t gotten a chance to use it until now. Tomorrow is Megan’s cheer competition. I’m hoping they advance because if not it’s the last one. EVER. I’m not sure I’m ready for that yet!!
A few more photos from the week:
I am trying so hard to get over here and record some of life lately, I have a bunch of random photos from the last week that deserve a little spot on this big World Wide Web.
We took Chloe, Lucy and Beckett to the aquarium this weekend
After the aquarium we walked over to Quincy Market to grab some dinner
I don’t usually look like I’m about to do yard work when I’m out in the city (hooded sweatshirts are never a good idea) but the aquarium was celebrating the Patriots so I had to show my support 😉
Lucy is trying to convince us to get another puppy……. more on that later
Speaking of Lucy, she is the sweetest sister!! She loves taking care of Beckett so much!!
This kid is such a charmer!! He smiles and talks to everyone when we’re out in public. He’s such a happy little boy 💙
I had to take a picture of these three before they headed off to school the other morning. I know they’re going to complain about the picture. Ha! That’s the reason why they’re not on my Instagram more. All grown up!! *sigh
I love the way he holds my hand when he’s on my lap 😍
And a few from Instagram
We took Megan and her friend up to Maine to look at UNE. Normally Jon is the one to take the girls on these college tours but we decided this time to make it a family affair. Ha! Sorry, Megs! I’m sure Marina loved a big ole family road trip with the Friary’s.
I’ll admit, I wanted to go because I wanted to spend a few hours up in Portland. We missed going up to Maine this summer and I think we were all craving donuts from Holy Donuts
Marina’s cousin just opened an organic cosmetic shop so we stopped in there because the girls had ordered some cheer makeup
Super cute shop! And, I love stores that have things to entertain kids while you shop!
We stopped at this place called Flatbreads for lunch and it was probably the best pizza we’ve ever had! Will definitely remember that place for next summer
It was a fun way to end our summer vacation. I’m not ready for all of the college hoopla that we’ll be going through over the next year but as much as I try, I can’t slow down time.
I’m just thankful that I have this little guy who makes me feel young 😊
I still can’t wrap my head around the fact that summer is over. When I dropped Lu off this morning it felt like I was just there. How could that have been over two months ago? Crazy!! I am looking forward to seeing some of my mama friends at pickup this afternoon.
We had our annual back to school dinner a couple of nights ago. Now that cheer has started and the girls have work at night I had to wait until all seven of us were around.
I took Lucy on a little back to school date
I got woken up at 5:30 this morning by the superintendent of schools calling to report a safety issue. Apparently someone made a threat to the high school. Nice! Not really how I wanted to send my girls back to school. I guess that’s the way of the world right now. Sad.
These two were ready to get back, though.
My last first day of school picture of Megan. 😥
Lucy was excited to get back too! She has both of her best friends in her class this year!
Beckett didn’t want to get out of the pictures this morning
I keep trying to convince him that he has another 4 years at home but he’s ready to go too!
Other than the 5:30 phone call and the fact that the oil man decided to deliver our oil (and block the driveway) when I was already running late to get Lucy to school, it was a really good morning. Fingers crossed and prayers going up that this is a great school year for all my girls, Emma starts on Tuesday.
