I haven't blogged in FOR.EV.ER, so I decided to share some photos from our end of the school year. I cannot believe this school year is over. I think it was the fastest year yet with all four at the "big school!" Add to that this whole moving across the state thing and we have a lot going on.
Here's a few things we had going on towards the end of the school year:
Jenna and Brody had their first ever piano recital! They did awesome. Brody was cool as a cucumber and Jenna was her regular nervous self. That being said, they both introduced themselves and what they were playing and I was very proud of them both. We will miss Mrs. V, our piano teacher, oodles next year!
In May I was able to accompany the twins on their field trip to the Blank Park Zoo. I am so fortunate to get to go on field trips with my kiddos and I definitely don't take that for granted. Blake was obsessed, and I do mean obsessed, with riding the dang camel! I have no idea why, but that's all he talked about, so an over-priced camel ride is what he got.
May means track and field day for the kids. This year with Jenna being in fifth grade, she was on a different day than the boys, which was such kind of awesome. With multiple kids I'm running around like a crazy person trying not to miss anybody, which I always do. Jenna had a great day! This girl and her long legs have taken a sudden interest in running. She has more of Aaron's speed than I thought, I think!
I always get a kick out of the kids trying to do the high jump. They literally get over it any way they can. It cracks me up! Brody's big feet knocked the bar over. This one also likes the running thing. Who are these children?! Surely, they can't be mine.
Brody won the 60 yard dash, coming from behind to win. At the end, with a big smile on his face he told me, "Mom, I think I ran so fast because I really had to pee!"
Blake didn't get a ribbon for running, but I was so proud of him. He hates being the center of attention and usually has a meltdown when everybody is staring at him. I was concerned he would get behind and quit running, but he didn't! Small victories, folks.
Bike rides and walks are the name of the game with all this nice weather! The twins and I got caught in a rain storm, but were rewarded with this beautiful rainbow.
