I'm sitting on the couch, in the middle of the afternoon, drinking a cup of coffee. Ahh, feels so good. These moments are few and far between and I'm taking advantage of the kids playing nicely together. We only have two more weeks of school after this one and I'm excited. I love summer break with kids!!!!! Except that I need to have a plan for all the bickering that's been going on. If I can't find a solution to that, theres a really good chance I'll go crazy by August.
I can barely wrap my mind around the fact that I almost have a 3rd grader, 1st grader, and preschooler! Wow, I almost a mom of 3 elementary school kids.
For school, Zane had to create a 3-D model of a caterpillar out of any materials that he wanted. So, we all brainstormed with him and came up with making the caterpillar out of cake and frosting, and then adding all the parts with different types of candy. Zane seriously did almost the whole thing by himself, starting with picking out the right type of candy for the correct part.
Then, baking the cake, cutting it, frosting it, putting it together, and then writing about it... It was a big job and I was really proud of all the work he put into it.
Empire State Building
Getting ready for fly balls
Smith and Grandpa Dave shared peanuts the entire game.
They also each got to have a treat - all 3 kids could eat sugar the entire game and be fine with it.
I love these two baseball fans.
On stage for the last time...
Since Zane is gone all day at school (not for long - YIPEE), these two have been forced to be friends. They do well most of the time, especially when they realize they have nobody else so they should make the best of the situation. Haha.
I let them do sprinklers earlier this month, and then this past weekend, it snowed 6 inches! Crazy May in Colorado.
Love these three.
Then we met Mrs. Gourley at the park and got to present it to her. She was so overwhelmed and thankful for such a nice gift.
He is soooooo good on defense. He can read the direction the players are going and grabs flags like crazy. He's still a little timid on offense, but has improved a ton since he started. He also starts baseball this week, for the summer, so we'll see how that goes!
I thoroughly enjoy my time with my little monkey. And lately it's been even more fun to have him and Molly together. They are beyond cute together and treat each other so well.
This is a typical ride in the car, goggles, helmet, whatever he can find...

Em liked the unicorn.
We took him out to dinner and then sang at home with his favorite, Mud Pie from Baskin Robbins.
