The lost days of May.

Since I am so behind in my posts....enjoy a glimpse into our May, full of sickness(we all were sick ALL month-long, no lie!) and fun.
Tyler & Lindsey posed on the morning of their last day of school.
While they were enjoying last day class parties and hanging with their friends
Natalie, Michael & I were painting a Welcome to Summer sign for them to run through AND

getting their supplies for celebration smores as we like to call them round here.

No longer a 1st grader....this girl was ready for summer vacation to begin!

Photo of her tucking her hair behind her ears....had to be included. I love this girl & am so very proud of her accomplishments.

Picking up Tyler was sorta surreal to me. I can't get over that he is starting high school. Side note:this is the only photo he allowed me to take of him, ugh!
Move it bookbags & lunch boxes....make way for towels, pool bags, and hats!

Okay, here is where we go totally random(don't you love my 80's speak? totally random)

We have been busy.
Running through sprinklers because our pool is STILL not fixed. And while we are good and dirty from the grass & dirt, we enjoyed some yummy grapes.

We started a new chore chart....but before we made it, we had to try out the dry erase markers. I give you...our family portrait, by Lindsey on the left side and by Michael on the right.

We've made use of lots online printables. Can you tell this is Arthur? She informed me that he had to be different this time. And he was.

One of the perks of living here.....sunsets are unbelievable no matter where you are. Like on our way to the mall.

We've rummaged through our utensil drawer and had lots of fun with play-dough.
We had lots of fun making red velvet cupcakes...
We brought out some long forgotten games we had. This Dr. Suess game was a big hit.
Tangrams & multiplication.....more fun than any of us expected.
Not the best photo of Natalie's new bed, but you get the idea. We bought it at a yard sale for $50 and painted it white. Now, she has more storage in that small room of hers. I'll be sure to take an after photo to show you her room all done.

Visited his high school & got his new schedule. Digital Media, drama, and a SOCIAL SKILLs class. Do you believe it? I am so very excited about. His school is very large. I think there are 5 separate buildings that are huge. I was so happy to get the chance to take pics of him there without any kids around. The place is so traditional and I had some great ideas. Unfortunately, it was pouring from the minute we got there til we left and he was so concerned that it wasn't allowed that this is all I got. Did you check out his, time for a hair cut.

We got a new quilt. Do you love it as much as I do?

A ladybug purse, heart heels, a pink flower hat, and a margarita glass. Isn't that all you really need?
There have been some serious scrabble junior games. My girl is starting to love it, just like Mommy!

We broke out our swimsuits.

and our trusty $38 pool and made due with what we had. Though it is tough looking at our pool. Empty.

Can't forget that Lindsey had another big milestone. She lost a front tooth and accidentally swallowed it!!!! Luckily, the tooth fairy saw the whole thing happen and took pity on her. $1 and another $1 for the emotional stress of it all:)

Last I leave you with this. I like it. I love it. What do you think?
