My Kids Keep Me Busy!!

A post a year...not a bad pace if I want my blog to totally go the way of all well-intentioned failures. But that ISN'T what I want. Yes, social media has made it easier for me to post pictures of my family, but there is just something fabulous about looking back at my posts. The kids love it too! So, I refuse to admit defeat. I will breathe life back into my blog, if only for a moment. The only excuse I can offer for my absence is that my kids keep me far too busy making memories to record said memories. Case in point--just a sampling of activities from Spring 2016: Enjoy! (Who knows when I'll be back?)

Along with April came prom season and Nicole was happy to go to Junior Prom with a friend from theater.

A few weeks later was Senior Ball and despite crossing all of her fingers and toes, she didn't get asked. :(  Not one to let that stop her, she cleaned up real nice and went "stag". She had a great time and made it home before midnight with both shoes still on her feet! 

Corinne (also went to Sr. Ball but that's a story for another day) decided to run for Junior Class Officer this year. First we held a photo shoot in the back yard to get pictures for her posters. She took this very seriously:

Next we made the posters. She opted for self-deprecation and begging.

And also a trendy fad reference.

And lastly, a fabulous play on her name!

Her strategies paid off! She won!!!
She is so excited to serve Mountain Crest next year, and work with the other officers, and also have tons of fun! (Probably not in that order.)

Paige played soccer again this year AND talked me into being her coach again this year. We had a huge team and it was a lot of fun despite a losing record. Paige still runs up and down the field without hardly breaking a sweat. She's pretty crazy and pretty great too!

Spencer started (and finished) orchestra this year. He decided to try the bass. He enjoyed it but not enough to continue next year. It was a good experience. Here he is at the spring assembly for his school.

He also was chosen as Citizen of the Month for his class in May. I'm so proud of him and how well he has done this year in school. He had an amazing teacher and great friends!

Claire was also chosen as Citizen of the Month. Her she is at her assembly in April.

This spring the second grade put on a play for the rest of the school. They taught, through word and song, about inventions .

Claire's part told about Thomas Edison and his invention of the phonograph. She is so sweet and cute and happy! Love her so much!
