JUNE 2017: Round Up

So....hey there June.  You were a busy month...and we enjoyed you!  Let's get started...

To start, we must end with school...Love these goofballs!!

The last day of school the 5th grade classes walk the hall for the last time, while the rest of the school and parents clap for them.  Unfortunately my photo skills were lacking, but I did get this one picture.  I managed to not cry until I caught another momma's eyes.  Then through tears I told her to "stop it!"....

The week after school was out the two littles had soccer camp...thanks to Gaga and Grandpa!!  They had a great time even with the awful heat!

This week mom and I worked at a client's house.  I don't have all the before and after pics, but hope to soon.

On the 8th we finally made our way to our pool!!!  I've been helping B learn to swim and she's doing a really good job.  She's still not a fan of putting her head under water, but she can swim across the pool without her noodle now!

Friday the 9th I went my friends Jerri and Shelly to a place downtown called Pete's Dueling Piano bar.  Multiple piano players performed songs all night long.  I can't even say how much fun we had and how INCREDIBLY talented these musicians were!!!  They all sang and played multiple instruments.  We had a blast just being together singing and acting silly.  

June 10th was our 17th anniversary.  This is what he does when I ask for a picture.  We celebrated by going to lunch at Uncle Julio's and then taking our brats to get ice cream!!

On Sunday the 11th we had to say our final goodbye to the Edstrom family.  We have gotten so close to them over the last few months.  Our kids love playing together and we were so sad for their move to Virginia.  It was a packed last day...Shelly cried all the way through church, we all went to lunch together, hung out at our house all afternoon, went to Grace's ballet recital, took some photos and then went to dinner at Buffalo Wild Wings.  It was a great day, but I admit most of us ended the day crying.  

All the kids (minus Aidan)....
Mimi, Caleb, Finley
Owen, Grace, Breslyn

All the adults...
Jerri, Mike, Shelly, George, me, Joey

That Tuesday Aidan left for youth camp...

This week I had a MILLION errands to run to get ready for our vacation...multiple doc appts, haircuts for all, oil change, bloodwork for Finn, clean out and wash the car, etc.  On one of the days the kids and I had lunch out!! 


and after!

That Friday night we went out to dinner with Mike and Jerri.  Joey and I ate for less than $20!!  Great couple deals on Fridays. :)

Sunday the 18th was Father's Day...and we celebrated this guy!!  

 Monday I got a pedicure with a giftcard from my boss....this pretty girl joined me and we had a great time together!!

Tuesday the 20th we left for vacation and that is a whole post in itself...but I will leave you with this little gem from vacay...you're welcome!!! 😂

Moving on to July....then August....oh how I LOATHE the heat, and summer, and heat.

MAY 2017 Round Up

May 2017...went by way too fast and furious for my liking!

It started off with B being sick.  Luckily it was nothing bad, just snot. 😜

Thank goodness she was able to make it back to school on Thursday...for FIELD TRIP DAY!!  Grandpa was able to go with her on her trip.  She was thrilled to have him there!

That Friday began our dog sitting adventure!!  This is Goose and he belongs to my amazing co-teacher.  They went out of town and we got to watch this massive super SWEET beast!

They kinda liked each other....

The next week was full of doctor appointments and work!!  But I received these beauties from the hubs...

My kids Joey bought me this necklace and I LOVE it!! I wear it almost every day! 😍

Saturday night we took Linda out for Mother's Day.  We went to Heim BBQ, and it was delicious.  But her company was the best part about the evening! (I didn't get a single picture on MD with my mom or Grandma...boo.)

On the 17th we had an awards ceremony at our church for Olympians (similar to Awanas).  It was so nice to have family come and celebrate with us.

The next night was graduation at my work.  Mollie, my co-teacher for the past 4 years, is leaving and I will miss seeing her sweet face.  She was a wonderful coworker, and will be missed by all the ladies at work.

And now a picture with my current co-teacher, Trica!!  Oh, how I love her bunches!!  She is so fun to work with and we just get each other!

We had a great Friday night, celebrating our friends that will be transferring to Virginia...but apparently I didn't get a single picture!  Boo!!

Sunday we celebrated B's (early) birthday at American Girl.  This year Owen came along for the ride.  The big boys spent the night with Gaga and Gpa.

(He didn't eat a single bite of this yummy food.)

Macaroni bites...😋

Pretzel bites...amazing!!  Our main course meals are not pictured...Turkey Clubs, Bistro Burger and nuggets.  All of it was delicious.

This is the doll B wants next...Tenney.  And this outfit was so cute!  She reminds me so much of B.

The next Monday were awards for Owen...

Then Tuesday it was B's turn.  She was awarded Sagacious Scholar (even though the certificate she is holding was printed wrong)!!  Proud of both the kiddos.

Wednesday the three littles had a water/splash night at church and Aidan had a spring football game.  I LOVE football and can't wait for Fall!!

Memorial Day weekend was so nice and relaxing.  We had some friends over Saturday night to watch A Few Good Men.  Then Sunday we visited a new church and really enjoyed it.  Monday was Memorial Day as well as Breslyn's 9th birthday!!  So we started the morning with donuts.  Then we had our family lunch at Mexican Inn.

Happy Birthday beautiful girl!  We love you to pieces!!😘😘😘

Tuesday the 30th was Finley's 5th Grade Awards ceremony.  It was looong, but we enjoyed seeing him sing and receive his awards.  

(Oh Owen....😣)

I love that Owen's teacher is on Twitter.  She shares pictures all throughout their day, and I love seeing them.  She's the only reason I have a Twitter account.  

They had a picnic on Wednesday the 31st, and I received this picture from Shauna, Colton's Momma.  So sweet!!!  Owen is really going to miss him.

And there ya have it....May was great.  The kids finished school on June 1st, and now it's time for Summmmmmer!🏊🍦🍕🌞  Here we go!
