May in Review

Guys, I don’t even know where this month has gone. Every week I have plans for posting more frequently on here and then the week actually happens and I find myself failing miserably, most of the time without blogging at all.

We’ve stayed busy with school, pushing pretty hard to make it to a good stopping point before taking June off. Because of that, we’ve forgone most of the projects and extra activities that we were doing at the first of the year. Hopefully we’ll get to start all that back up in August when we start the new school year, cause the girls miss them a lot. I’m pretty much just tired and ready for a break at this point, so June will be glorious.

The girls and I had a date and saw Cinderella. We raaaarely go to the theater (this was only their second time) so it was a treat for all of us.  They especially enjoyed the Frozen short at the beginning…like every other little girl in America, I’m sure. I just endured that part (insert eye roll here).

Nice glowy eyes, right?

I looked out the window one day and had to snap a photo of Susannah reading a story to Madeline. They stayed like this for at least an hour and it made me so stinkin happy.



Susannah started talking about swap meets all of a sudden and was super obsessed with them, so we had our very own with handmade items. It was a blast and in typical Susannah-overachiever fashion, she made about a zillion more than everybody else. She’s such a creative little soul. And in typical Madline fashion, she lost all of hers and had to scrounge something together at the last minute.  She kills me.

The past week has been spent almost entirely at the hospital, since my dad-in-law is in the ICU. He’s still not recovered, but is a more stable than he was, which we’re very thankful for.  It was a very long, scary week for the family, and we’re all glad it’s behind us and things are looking more hopeful now. Heather came up for a few days to watch the girls for me and was a huge help to us.

I’ve got more to share, and a few books to review and fun mail stuff and even a few projects, so hopefully I can get my act together a little better and it won’t be a month before I get on here again.

Thanks for all the prayers and thoughts many of you have sent our way this past week, it means so much to the whole fam.

  1. I am right there with you on the month flying by. It never slows down for me. CRAZY! So glad that your father in law is doing some better. I will continue to pray. I love seeing children read. It makes me happy because I never found that love for books. Wish I had…..

    Let me know if you need anything. Love you!
