Electronics for all!
Sunday church best. Alex is wearing Ben’s purse for him. The minute Ben saw Kaitlyn’s purse he wanted one too. Kaitlyn was nice enough to get one for him that matched his outfit. He carried it all morning but didn’t want it for the picture.
Ben got in on the cleaning and tried to wash the toys in the sunroom.
This particular dinner place is a favorite because it has a grassy field next to the picnic tables. We always try to remember to bring a soccer ball to keep everybody entertained.
Teague ending his day with the dreaded teeth brushing.
Ben convinced Kaitlyn to build his car wash, but then she didn’t want to share. Ages 7 and 4 are rough.
The big boys have nicknamed him “The Gremlin”
Lacrosse – again.
The final soccer practice of Spring.
KitKat chose to return to napping with Ben today. It was the sweetest.
Practice, practice, practice.
Teague had a field trip today to Old Sturbridge Village and one of my friend’s was nice enough to send me a picture.
We bought a new lunch box in preparation for next year, but it has just made Kaitlyn want to pack her lunch most every day the last few days of the year.
Ben has been begging to paint in the shower for ages and this is the first truly free morning we have had in ages.
Spring Concert is done! Wade and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Alex perform.
Teague looks rather large on Kaitlyn’s scooter, but they were all having a great time outside.
Kaitlyn is worried about her strawberry plant and trying to give it extra care lately.
Ben and I bought flowers for all of my pots today and I was determined to get everything potted before rain comes through tonight.
We bought this raincoat last fall when we realized Alex would be walking in sometimes unexpected rain storms. This is the first time he has agreed to worn it – most likely only to protect his headphones and Chromebook.
This doesn’t look comfortable, but Teague took quite a long nap just like this.
Mac & Cheese for lunch – Ben chose to be prepared for anything.
Kaitlyn is practicing to be the next Katniss Everdeen.
Hotdogs for dinner!
It’s Fun Fair and the entire family has been drafted into volunteering. (Kaitlyn was helping to get the Dum Dum tree ready in the games area.)
Homework waits for no man…
We go through so much milk we squash the jugs to make more room in the recycling bin.
Kaitlyn came home with three love notes in her backpack today. I asked her about them and she got an embarrassed look on her face and said, “He says he’s going to marry me when he grows up.”
Ben has been staying strong to his mismatched shoe streak. Today was a rainy day and he branched out with a shoe and a boot.
Chocolate icing for chocolate cake – then he covered it all in mini chocolate chips. A chocolate lovers dream.
I offered to make these two dinner before soccer practice, but they wanted to make their own dinner.
Alex decided to take a page out of Ben’s book and go with the mis-matched pajama look. He tried to one-up him though and turned his pants inside out.
Alex has been consistently practicing lacrosse the last few weeks. He also now has a helmet that allows him to wear his glasses during games. He may turn into an entirely different player at some point.
Teague is making cakes for the game “Musical Cakes” at the Fun Fair. Today he learned to flip a cake onto a cooling rack.
Today Alex was too cool for pictures.
What is truly amazing is for the amount of time these kids spend in the sandbox there is actually very little sand in my house.
Sometimes I see some adorable sibling moments.
he slip ‘n slide was a huge hit today!
The slip ‘n slide was a huge hit today!
Today we introduced Ben to the big slip ‘n slide.
Dressed in their summer Sunday best.
We attended our first B’nai Mitzvah today for one of Alex’s good friends.
(One of Alex’s other friends tagged along with us.)
The boys (all three) love avocado toast. This year they have learned to make it themselves.
Kaitlyn agreed to help make posters for the FunFair.
