Shoofly Farm Camp!

I had one more week of work after the kids got out of school so I signed them up for Shoofly Farm Camp. It turned out to be an amazing, muddy week for them! They rode horses, took care of farm animals, did some awesome arts and crafts and played in a creek.  What a great start to summer.

School is out!

Good-bye 4th, 2nd and Kindergarten and hello summer! The kids will be moving schools next year so it was tough to say good-bye to classmates but we will still see their friends and we are very excited to be going to the wonderful school across the street next year!  I am also going to have a big change next school year, after 6 years as the school psychologist at an early childhood center part-time in our school district, I will be moving to the high school right up the road from our house and working full time. Cheers to new beginnings for us...but first, cheers to a summer of fun!

This was in my bag on my first day of work in the school district 6 years ago. I found it while cleaning out my office- sweet babies!
Riley's soccer team won the spring league and their shirts came in so they took a picture after practice. Way to go ladies!

Seabrook Weekend

The celebration of Nate turning 10 continued with a weekend on the Washington Coast at Seabrook with one of our favorite families! Courtney and I met in a mom's group when Nate was four months old and Ezra was 3 weeks old, then Riley and Olivia were born 3 weeks apart, and last but not least Ben and Lars had the same due date and were born 5 days apart (Lars came early, Ben came late).  It was an amazing weekend on the beach!

Happy 10th Nate!

Our firstborn has hit double-digits. Happy decade Nate the Great! We are so proud of you! At 10 I am savoring every hug you give me and holding on just a little bit longer because I see you becoming more and more independent and I know you are about to embark on the next stage of childhood-those tween years. What a joy it is to watch you grow.

The first few weeks of June were busy so Nate celebrated his birthday at Lucky Strike on June 11th. Yes-I often backdate my posts. ;)
