In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb

April 8th!! What?!?!? Happy Birthday to my mom!!

I feel like I blinked and March was gone and April seems to be heading the same way. This little space has been quiet but life definitely isn’t! The other day I was playing in the driveway with Lucy and Beckett and it hit me that I’ve had babies and kids for the last 23 (next month) years!! I’ve spent my entire adult life as a mom. I can’t imagine having life any other way but WOW!!

I’ve taken a lot of pictures over the last few weeks so here goes:

Lucy got some gummy sushi from Amazon. It tasted about as great as regular sushi. Ha!

As we were walking in the grocery aisle the other day he said “hey, mom, take a picture of this and planted a big kiss on Lucy.

The weather has been so nice so we’ve been spending a lot of time outside.

Jon and I had a date night last week and I had to snap a picture of this gorgeous sunset.

The last two years Tracey has been coming up to spend a day with me. We go shopping, out to lunch and she does my school runs with me. It’s turning into one of my favorite days of the year. Tracey fun fact: when I moved up here she would come up every couple of weeks to spend the day with me and the girls. I think she felt bad because she knew I was all alone up here. She’s the BEST!!

School lunch for Lucy

Beckett lunch. He’s so picky!! I’m having the hardest time trying to get nutritious meals into this kid. He is all about junk food so now I have to limit what we keep in the house. Which is obviously a good thing. Haha! Thanks, Beckett!!

Marlene found this old puzzle that she was gifted about 13 years ago.  Look at those sweet little faces!

I can’t wait for school to be out for the summer so I can have all the pieces to this Friary puzzle back home for a few months!

This Moment

She was sitting on the couch while I was putting Lucy’s lunch together this morning. I turned and saw her staring at me. She smiled and I burst into tears. It’s gonna be a long week. Graduation tomorrow.

End of April

Let’s get caught up on the end of April before all the hoopla begins! May and June are hands down my busiest months! May starts Friary Family birthday season. We have 6 months straight of birthdays in this house. Throw in prom, graduation, graduation parties, confirmation and all of the end of the school year activities and we are pretty much out straight. But, you all know that I LOVE it!! We have such a fun summer planned and I’m sure it’ll be here before I know it.

Let’s just take a look at some of the pictures I’ve taken over the last 2 weeks first

This boy is growing like a weed!! He is SO smart and SO funny!! I LOVE moments like those pictured above because I know that before I know it I’ll be writing about his graduation. He wants me to rock him to sleep before every nap and every night before bed so I’m just going to sit here and soak it all in.
