Last Day!

Here we are….last day of kindergarten!


Mia has grown so much this year. She had a wonderful time in kindergarten and although she’s excited about summer, she was sad to be done with school. She’s going to miss her teachers and friends!

1st grade, here she comes!


From snow storms to peak tornado season. I like to keep things dramatic on here.

Actually, tornado season hasn’t been too bad so far. Most severe weather has gone north of us and the one time the sirens did go off we weren’t home – we were in another town that was not in the path at all so that worked out.

In between the snow and the severe weather, we had Spring Break and Easter. Easter Sunday was rainy and dreary but Saturday was a pretty day so we took advantage of that day and did our egg hunt and took some pictures at the church. They’re just getting so grown up.

This one cracks me up.

And I can just hear Mia belly laughing in this one.

She has grown up a lot this year – not just physcially, she’s kind of shot up, but just all around. She’s a sweet girl who loves and serves those around her well.


And this little guy…well, he just makes life an adventure. He’s fun and wild, but one of the most tender-hearted boys I know.

But don’t get me wrong…he still makes my heart skip several beats throughout the day.

We’re definitely blessed.

Spring Break Recap next time.


Snow update

Last time I was on here we were wondering if we would get our first snow days of the year. We did. Finally went to school on Thursday after it all started Sunday night. Since then we’ve had more (and more) snow and another round of stuck-at-home snow over the weekend. And now…here we are again. 2-4″ inches predicted although the national weather service keeps being mean and saying 10″. Really?! Guess, we’ll see how long that keeps us in. We’re stocked on food, Finn has a new (to him) pair of snow boots that we found for $3. I’d say we’re as ready as we’ll ever be.
Although the last time this hit, Finn seemed to not love all of it. Except for the hot chocolate and marshmallows part, of course.


We tried to keep busy around the house as much as we could: besides playing in the snow, we built forts, did some activities and sorted stuff for a consignment sale. That view of the playground almost did me in one of those days.


Of course, we had to get out too. It’s important to stay hydrated and take the time to refuel between stuck at home phases.


One thing I do know. Rain or shine (or snow)… things are never boring with these two around.
