Oh hey...May. Where did you go?! I cannot believe how fast the past month has flown by. The Burdorf house has been so incredibly crazy, as I'm sure many of yours have. Just the time of year I guess. I put together a bunch of pictures that highlight some of the things we've been up to.
It snowed. 10.5" here in Central Iowa. On May 3rd. It was the strangest thing, so yes, I did indeed make a sign and have my kids stand in the snowbank holding it. It's history!
Aaron took this picture of Brody and we thought it was funny. Shortly after most of the snow had melted there was still this drift by our neighbor's. Snow in the background. Brody throwing a snowball. In shorts. With a grill in the background.
So...we were all going to walk together, but then I got antsy when everybody started to run around us, so I asked Jenna if she wanted to run. She did! We ran/walked the entire thing and she did so good! I was so proud of her for completing her first 5K!
Anyway, Jenna was certain she was going to die the last 200M or so, but I kept telling her she could do it. I pointed to the banners where the finish line was close to. Once we hit that, we turned the corner and all these people were cheering us on. What did Jenna did? She took off on a sprint!! The little stinker!! I caught up to her and said, I thought you were tired. She informed me she had a 'burst of energy at the end.'' Super proud mama moment.
Brody made it about a half mile and then him, Daddy and the boys turned around and waited for Jenna and me. They did cross the finish line for an official time.
We are so grateful for all the people and organizations we've come in contact with because of Blakers.
Softball season is underway! Jenna plays Tuesday and Thursday nights and Aaron is now umpiring, so it seems we are always heading in different directions. Jenna was so nervous before her first game (she is her mother's daughter), but she did great!
Yes she hit this. Or golfed it. I'm not sure how she made contact, but she did. And, even though she got out, she was smiling afterwards.
We love it when the weather is actually nice enough to play outside!
Blakers after our tough Friday night. Poor kiddo. One of the tougher days as his mama.
There you have it. I'm sure I forgot some stuff, but you're pretty well caught up. Tomorrow is Jenna's last day of first grade. I can't believe it! Aaron's last day is Thursday. It makes me kind of sad that another year is already over, but I'm excited for the summer! I told the kids we have a summer list to get working on. :)
