Bryce's 3rd grade program

Bryce had a Patriotic Songfest and awards ceremony on Friday.

The kids were all so cute in their red, white and blue.

Bryce received the citizenship award for his class. 

His biggest fans came to watch. 

The kids sang a bunch of patriotic songs, but my favorite was their spin on "I Will Survive" having finished their first year of SOL testing.


the time got away from me

We've had a few free nights with cooler temperatures so we've been going down to the school to ride bikes.  

Emmy has gotten so good at riding her bike.

I took the kids to Sweet Frog for a treat after school one day!

Bryce has a baseball tournament on Memorial Day.  Sometimes Emmy needs a little entertaining while we're there!

She dressed very patriotic for the weekend events!

Stars and Stripes!

Bryce's team colors are red and blue so he was patriotic too!

Pool days began over the Memorial Day weekend.

We had friends over for the water slide and s'mores one night.

We were back at the pool on Memorial Day to celebrate Nana's birthday.  

Happy Birthday Nana!

Last weekend Emmy was worn out from another weekend of fun.  

The kids are in the home stretch of school this week and can't wait for summer!

mothers day

Our attempt at a Mother's Day photo didn't go so well, but here we are, faces askew and eyes closed!  

I always love these cards that come from school.  

I love that I'm the best at being organized.  Yaaass!!

After getting the spring festival behind me, I needed a day to recuperate.  I came down with a cold after being so busy and stressed that I decided to take a "sick" day to recharge.  I celebrated me with an early Mother's Day outing on Wednesday.     

First stop was getting all of my spring flowers.

Second stop was getting a much needed pedicure.

My next stop was a little shopping!

I met Jason for lunch to round out the day!  

just some things

Bryce had two of his school projects in the Arts and Sciences Festival back in April.  

Two of our neighbors are pregnant so we've had fun showering them!

The PTA put on a Spring Festival at our school last weekend.  I was so busy I had very few picture to show for it.  

Emmy and her sand art.

Bryce won a cake in the cake walk.

After a full day of spring festival, Emmy's gymnastics meet and two baseball games for Bryce, Jason surprised me with some champagne to celebrate the success of the spring festival we worked on for so long.

Emmy's class started an ABC countdown to the end of kindergarten last week.  Monday was stuffed "A"nimal day!

It was hot here this weekend so we kicked off summer temperatures with the water slide!

field day 2018

The kids had field day on Friday.  Jason and I were both off so we got to enjoy the day with the kids!

Emmy has made the sweetest friends this year.  I didn't notice all the girls were holding hands until I was looking at the picture later in the day.  So cute!


Kona Ice to cool off!

Love this girl of mine!

Emmy had her portion in the morning and Bryce's was in the afternoon.  

There are only 6 boys in Bryce's class!  Gotta stick together!

Bryce ran the anchor in the relay for his class.  They smoked the other classes!

Kona Ice for the win!

It was a fun day!


When we're not on the baseball field, we're at the gym!  Emmy has been on a pre-team gymnastics group this year and she practice two days a week from 3:15-4:30.  She has grown so much and loves it.  Last weekend we got to watch her perform in her year end show (mini meet).

Here is her floor routine!  There was a lot going on in the gym so it was hard to video it, but you can see it pretty well!

Here is her bar routine!  Again, may be hard to see with people jumping around in between!

All the girls got a medal!

So proud of this girl.

She'll be moving up to level 1 this summer and I can't wait so see what she accomplishes next!


We've been busy with baseball.  Emmy had her opening day back on April 21st and she's had two games a week since!

There are four girls on her team because there weren't enough girls in her age group to play softball this year.  Jason agreed to coach her team with the other girls who were willing to play baseball. 

She loves it and does pretty well.

Baseball ready!

Bryce plays about every other weekend with 1-2 practices a week mixed in.  

Kona Ice is an added bonus in between games!

It's a baseball world and we're just living in it!

The boys both had games at Mechanicsville Little League this weekend so they were able to watch each other's games and even spend a little time together. 

Go #34!

Emmy and Taylor enjoyed some girl time during the game!
