May's Bits

Oh May, you were a whirlwind.  There was so much involved with closing on the sale of our home, searching and searching for a new one (still doing that, by the way), and end of the school year stuff. Fun as it was, at times, it also left me exhausted and ready to move on.

Mother's Day was a good one.  As hectic as life can get, celebrating that I'm the mom to these three is special and wonderful.


We lost Luke for a little while one day.  That silly boy was so quiet and giggled with excitement when he finally popped out of the trash can.

The picture doesn't show half of the dirt covering this boy.  Baths were an absolute must after Noah's baseball games.

Nate's annual conference was in Nashville.  I figure if you're going to be away from home better be worth it and by the pictures and reports of what he did while he wasn't in class, I'd say he did o.k.

One day, not too far in the future, I'll be his traveling companion and he won't just be texting me pictures of his hotel.  Looks beautiful, right?


There's a long story about being locked out of our house by our buyer's realtor (twice!).  One of those days we ended up at Grandma's so Leah could nap.  Luke found K.C.'s graduation cap while we were FaceTiming Nate in Nashville.

 The rain mostly let up, and we finally had some warm days.  It's funny how novel and fun the sprinkler is when you haven't used it since last summer.

Noah could hardly wait for his Open House night to begin at school.  Leah hung out in Mrs. Chan's rocking chair while the rest of us got a tour of Room 4.
Noah took his job as tour guide seriously and triple checked his list to make sure we'd seen everything.
Mrs. Chan told me that she was so proud of Noah for choosing to write about being a mayor, especially since that was a community helper she hadn't even talked about during their unit.
I'm so grateful Noah has had a teacher he loves.  Every day he has walked out of that classroom with a smile on his face and a story about Mrs. Chan.



Leah wore another one of my dresses and looked adorable.  The knee socks made the outfit.  I just love it!

Luke came out of his room and declared he was dressed as a Jurassic Park dinosaur hunter.

Luke finished his first year of Joy School!  We kept the celebration pretty simple and enjoyed a morning at the park.  This was such a fun group of kids!


It would be easy to follow Leah around and take pictures all day.  This girl is so full of life, so full of personality, and always keeps me wondering what curious thing she'll do next.

This girl loves glasses!  My neighbor (and dear friend Sandy) helped me out in a last minute pinch.  When I came to pick up Leah she was wearing McKenna's glasses from when she was little.

Is it weird that one of her first five words was ga gas?  Goggles, glasses, she doesn't care.
More glasses cuteness!


It finally got warm enough to go swimming!

Leah is loving the water this summer.
