Strawberry pickin' and ballet weekend

Shits goin' good. This week was officially the beginning of summer  A ribbon cutting declaration consisting of a mini road trip to pick strawberries and by Friday we were at the farmers market eating donuts on national donut day. It's things like that that make me feel on point-like this mom slash life gig is going well. I'm embarrassed to admit that my legs are still a little sore from our berry picking adventure, but yeah, they are. 


          


               
              


                



Our weekend consisted of ballet. Lots of ballet, rehearsal Friday evening and Saturday was their grand recital. Being the seasoned ballet mom that I am I knew what to expect out of this end of the season hurrah. Hot.hell. And this year I had two girls to get through. Thankfully they were only two classes performing in between them & they were in the first act-meaning, we were home by 6:30. Score. 
            

             

They both did so great. Honest to goodness smiles worked their way across my girls faces and I once again I was a crazy person all day. Fortunately cameron is the only one who is blessed to see it & put up with it. I, the amazing-on-top-of-it mama that I am remembered to charge the video camera perhaps five minutes before us gals needed to leave the house. I told cameron NOT TO FORGET THE VIDEO CAMERA, and then text him to as we pulled out of the driveway to bring the big girl camera. That you guys, is trust. Honest to goodness TRUST. Never in my life did I think I would be able to trust him with not only remembering to bring the video camera, but also my big girl camera when Im not as on top of my shiz as I should be. In case your wonderin' he followed through. And picked up flowers on the way. Good fella he is.

What We've been up to-in photos

I've struggled with how to get back into this. There is so much to write, to tell, and so much that I feel is going to be forgotten or Id like to share. We've been constantly going throughout this absence (go figure) and I wish I could show it all. But here I go, I'm just gonna throw it all out there.


How we've been? We've been well, Rourys a ripening 6 months old, eating, sitting, and totally obsessed with her sisters. And them? The little busy bees. They are swell. Typical big bossy sister and Remy is the annoying little sister that takes & breaks. They both keep me laughing (and screaming) daily. It's amazing how one day can literally be the worst day on earth with them and the next is nothing but sunshine and roses. Raygans developed quite the attitude and I feel like I'm getting in an argument with my -almost- five year old self every single time. Remy is growing super independent and I'm loving it, other days I'm not...like Monday. The day I got a peanut butter and jelly sandwich thrown at me, then later found in the garbage with a kid on the counter, bread spread out with her little hands fist deep in peanut bitter gripping a butter knife. She would have completed her sandwich if she could have only opened the jelly. I went with it and opened the damn jelly. Picking my battles one sandwich at a time.

 

 

 


                                                                      

We've been keeping ourselves busy with T-ball, swimming, and ballet. One of which is already over, and latter two are coming to an end. We're filling our gaps with preschool play dates where I forget all about bossy big sister problems and thrive on how great of a big sister she truly is, tugging Remy around by the arm with all of her big girl friends the entire time.

We're loving having a yard, its really our first yard ever! I knew we'd utilize it and love it, but I never expected so much. We -and by we I mean Cameron- planted a (very) humble garden and I can't wait to see the results. My mans the one with the green thumb, not I. The girls love being out there, and damn near every meal has been ate outside.

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We're BBQing and prepping for summer in every aspect possible. Camping trips and Fourth of July celebrations are in the works and I can't wait to fill in the gaps with memory making adventures that can only be filled throughout summer. Strawberry picking anyone? Im having difficulties finding a patch near us.
