Pray for Me, I Mean, US!!!

This is my week...



...followed up next week by my 11-year-old graduating to middle school.

I'm not sure I'm going to handle all this...at least not well!!!!

Say prayers and I'll be back later this week with an (hopefully positive) update :)

Five on Friday


I'm linking up with darciaprilchristina + natasha for Five on Friday!


Grab button for FIVE ON FRIDAY AT THE GOOD LIFE BLOG

I'm looking forward to spending my weekend right here...with littles digging in the dirt patch..


 And enjoying our outdoor living space with a nice glass of wine...or two...


I'm sure there is a hike planned to get some energy out of the bundles of energy that live at this house!!!


Today was our last day of MOPS for the year.  We have several playdates planned for the summer and I've joined the steering team for the next year.  I'll be putting my love of technology to use by heading the publicity for our group.  I'm looking forward to the new friendships and a place to grow in my motherhood and faith!  

And for fun, here is the painted pot we made this month!


Another favorite this week was a fun visit to Wicked Tulip Farm.  It was so pretty and I loved visiting with a great new friend!!!

Sweetheart Dance

 The girls went to the annual Sweetheart Dance with Daddy!
This was Tater's last one in elementary school (holding back tears!).


And Bubba had to be in all the pictures, of course!!!

Life Lately

It's time to just catch up on life lately!  This will be extremely picture-heavy but I need to get back to present time :).  Enjoy!


It was rainy and chilly but we re-mulched our play area in April.  It had been several years and was much needed!  Also we added the pergola on the deck and the love seat...both which I have been enjoying every day that is warm enough!  

We've been visiting the library every other Sunday and this boy has been filling his bag to the brim and then reading books without stopping!  I LOVE this!

Bubba was Super Bubba one night!

Tater had a chorus concert at school one night...and was not thrilled that I made her dress up and not just wear leggings and a t-shirt :)

Bubba had his first (temporary) tattoo!

Then he put on his brother's sweatshirt and told me he was "Hoda".

This is the scene when a 2-year-old skips his nap!

After over 9 years in this house and with a bathroom covered in pink and blue tile, we painted the tile white and had Bath Fitters cover the walk-in shower.  It was pricy but soooooo worth it!  
We LOVE it!
 
This was Bubba's 3rd birthday gift from us and Papa...it's really is the ultimate car garage!  It's huge and in my living room and he plays with it constantly...so I'm ok with that!

He was playing the "shy birthday boy" :)



Cupcakes for the win!

And then a birthday movie in Sassy's bed...the big kids let the birthday boy pick the movie and watched it without complaining!

Bubba got birthday money from Pop-Pop and Memaw and picked out a Nerf gun...sigh...

The basement playroom was a disaster...so I purged and organized and it is amazing!  We filled the Suburban with things to donate, including 2 large furniture pieces and many, many, many toys that were never used.  Now they can see what they have and actually play with the things they love!


The day after a birthday means several snacks of cupcakes (and pants are optional!).

Outside play time!

Daddy built me a raised garden bed for vegetables.  Our ground soil is so sandy that we never have had any luck growing anything...hopefully this will help and we will have a plentiful garden this year!



I snagged a Groupon for our local Audubon membership this spring and we payed the education center a visit.  It's fun to check out and poke around.

There's a great walking path down to the bay...but Sassy found it to be a little long and tiring!

A sure sign of spring is having the dirt patch back in action!  Boys love dirt!

Loving beverages on the deck!

Family movie night - we introduced them to Honey I Shrunk the Kids!

Dirty pants and feet are the sign of a good spring day!

This was totally unprompted but all 4 kids snuggled outside on the couch and listen to Tater read them library books...so, so, so, so super-sweet!


We've been enjoying the nice days and hiking as a family on local paths...well, Daddy and I are hiking, Bubba is riding, and Sassy and Bruiser run.  Tater is not a fan of hiking so we try to go when she is busy with other activities :)

This day, Tater was at Girl Scouts and Bubba was napping...Sassy treated her brother to a treat from the ice cream truck.  The kindest heart!

All these beautiful sunny outside pictures make me crazy for spring and spending our days outside...it's been raining for a week and is soon chilly!  Hopefully things will turn around soon!
