May was insane. Insane.
There was the normal end of year school stuff.
Lots of kindergarten fun
Hope of America for Macey:
she’s sitting in that purple circle.
Suncrest always does common start the last week of school, which meant the kids could actually ride the bus to and from school! Party.
There was beautiful weather to enjoy.
We had to say goodbye to some of our most favorite people. Trina and TJ moved to Las Vegas. I shed many tears over the fact.
We had to soak up our last days in the neighborhood.
And then our friends threw us a surprise going away dance party.
These are my people and I have desperately missed having them right outside my front door.
Mother’s Day, where as normal, they were not cooperative for my picture, but it was an amazing day anyways.
and i love getting to sport some of my homemade jewelry.
There was the packing. Which I don’t have any real pictures of. Turns out packing wasn’t that bad. The unpacking was worse. :)
There was closing on the new house, but not moving in right away because it wasn’t actually done. We did at least get shelves up in the garage and curtain rods hung.
Then there was the actual moving and unpacking.
Kids were actually great unpackers. I didn’t even come help them organize their rooms until at least a week after we moved in.
first dinner in the new house, Kid Cuisines. I might of been using their favorite foods to help them like the new house better. :)
And saying goodbye to our beloved Townhome, The Pink Palace. Which of course deserves it’s very own blog post.
last back yard movie night.
Final goodbye, to the finally clean and empty house.
And then school got out on May 31st and I don’t think I’ve sat down once since then. :)
_first and last day of kindergarten.
I was actually surprised at how well this kid did in kindergarten, he killed it._
last day of 2nd and 5th grade.
This was a tricky year for Miles, but he was blessed with an amazing teacher who patiently took the time he needed. She listened to his worries and helped him work through it all. He was so excited to get the “Greatest Improvement” award. It was well earned and I am glad he knew what a big deal this was.
The kids were quite excited that I still remembered to do their last day of school buckets, they were worried I’d forget with the chaos of moving. I like these moments when I actually impress them with my mom skills. :)
Now we are just working on settling into the new house and getting used to just having each other around, instead of all our old neighborhood friends/family.
tiny table in our sunroom. :)
