Mother’s Day 2019 with my babies:
A delicious brunch and a morning showered with love and thoughtful gifts from my babes.
|I felt so very loved by my girls. Got the SWEETEST handmade gifts, cards and presents!|
After Mother’s Day, we said goodbye to Marcus as he left on an adventure of a lifetime with his parents and brother the next day. They went river rafting in the Grand Canyon and slept in a tent! We were without contact with Marcus for 8 whole days! Marcus obviously travels a lot for work, but we have never not been in contact. It was definitely weird and very hard for the girls and I, but when it was all said and done, I honestly felt a sense of empowerment! Another friend of mine told me that I would. And I definitely did! I can handle anything! 🙂 .
While Marcus was gone, the girls were busy wrapping up their end of the year activities and school
|Sonoma had an end of the year downtown historical Westfield field trip I was able to chaperone!|
|Little B had her first dentist appointment. I had to sit in the chair too…..|
Cora had her bridging ceremony for Daisies. She bridged to a Brownie!
|Cora even had a speaking part in the ceremony!|
So proud of Cora! Two years of Daisies and now she is a Brownie!
|The ceremony was reaaaaaalllly long so we left early and I took the girls out to their favorite ice cream place in Carmel – Subzero! You can make most any ice cream there Vegan!|
Meanwhile, B finished up her 2 year old preschool class! She is going to miss school soooo much. She learned and grew so much this past year during her first year of school.
|We will miss Darci and Agnies! Such amazing teachers.|
Blakesley and four other girls in her class hit it off so well, they were practically inseparable! We call them the Girl Squad! We immediately had a play date the day after school to celebrate Claire’s birthday. I have NEVER seen 2 year olds interact so much before in my life! They are all SO tight with one another. It’s absolutely darling. And the best part? I am becoming really close with all the Moms and they are all such wonderful people. We actually have a lot of things in common and a lot of connections. Such a small world!
I volunteered at Field Day at school all day and worked the water limbo. It was SUCH a fun day and I loved being there with the girls to help out!
|My iris that I transferred from my parents’ house bloomed!|
The girls and I spent a beautiful Saturday morning at Asa Bales outdoor fitness court and park and ran / scootered along the trails.
|Finally a nice day out!|
Cora and I attended the 2019 Mother Daughter Girl Scout tea together. We went with some other friends from her troop and we had snacks, tea, a photo booth, and played games together. It was very special and I treasured that 1:1 time with Cora.
|Cora insisted we wear matching outfits 🙂|
Cora had to create a desert biome project and her animal was the Fennec Fox and her fruit was the dragonfruit. She had to create a diorama and do a big research project + make a book. She presented to her class and then they had a biome tour day at school for all the parents. It was her first big assignment and project and Marcus took the lead on helping her with all of it. She earned an A+ on everything!
|Last day of school for Cora and Sonoma!|
|And, my last day with Blakesley, just the two of us!|
Summer – are we ready for you ?!?!?!?!!?
