The Fam

Standard

I realized I haven’t updated things in awhile.

Things have been busy but good.

Dustin got the fun opportunity to travel for work… all the way to Iowa and Illinois. What it meant was that he got to work long days while we attempted to hold down the fort.

It made me all the more grateful that we have each other and are a team.

I have been doing well with my trial. I get to do a phone interview every couple of weeks to make sure I haven’t tipped over yet. Every couple of times for those, includes going in for blood work. I also throw in a quick physical and vaccines as well. I don’t get another round of actual meds until July.

Other than the giant welt and itchy red spot from the last round of vaccines, things have been rolling in the right direction.

Thing One is finishing up second grade. While he has excelled and learned so much, he still complains about going every morning. He takes longer to complain about the work, than to actually do his homework. He will just choose to read though, and will loudly proclaim that he loves science.

He performed with the entire second grade to sing songs for parents. He was so nervous about messing up. It was sweet how big he smiled when he saw us sitting in the audience though. I may have a musical kid yet.

He is still going strong with Cub Scouts. He just earned his wolf badge and will graduate to a bear in June. He looks so handsome in his outfit.

Thing Two is finally stretching out and has grown multiple inches.

He’s so excited that he’ll get to go to kindergarten in the fall. He’ll get to go to the same school as his big brother. For now, he’s loving preschool and looking forward to summer fun.

This summer both boys will be at work with me. They’ll get to go on field trips together too. I’m excited to have them able to bond and be big kids together.

We’ve been able to get to the cabin as a family for a few weekends now.

It’s awesome to see the boys so independent and free.

Basically, we have been very busy but happy together.

Spoon Theory

This summer with the heat has been tough.

 

 

 

 

The biggest and best consumers of my spoons would be these two- who have been very busy all summer long…

Our happy family went north for the weekend of the 4th of July.

We had our usual cabin fun of course.

And the boys got their own fishing poles!  They loved it until a fish was actually caught.  Small steps.

Then there was the bonus festivities!

We started with the parade in town.  The boys found their headphones that were meant for fireworks but they work well for loud sirens too.

Then we went to Pede’s for fun before the big show.

Then we got on our boat and got to watch the fireworks from the lake. It was pretty cool!
