Memorial Day Beach Morning

Went to the beach over by our possible future home today. When we move it will be just a six minute walk from our house!!! So excited for that! 

It was a gorgeous morning! 

Last day of Preschool

Isaac had his last day of preschool this past Thursday. It's been a. Fun year for him; every Tuesday & Thursday from 9:30am-12. 

They had a little celebration at 11:30 on the last day. We got to come watch them have a story for circle time. 

Mary went right over to sit in Isaac's lap, it was too cute! 

Then the class sat in a row and were handed little certificates of completion. 

Little siblings playing. 

Then we all went outside for Popsicles on the playground. The girls loved being a part of this. 

Isaac has really enjoyed being in Teacher Lisa's class and with Teacher Andie (left).

Mother's Day Arboretum Visit

CrabApple Arboretum-12
We made it out to the arboretum just in time to see the Crab Apples. They were probably a little more beautiful before the 90 degree day we had a few days before Mother's Day. But we were busy getting the house ready to sell and wasn't able to get out there at absolute peak time. I think we still got to see their beauty though.

Isaac filled out another fun Mom survey:

We made it to church in the AM, attempted a kid photo, but you know it's impossible to get all three looking and smiling at the same time. :-P

 We came home for naps, seriously life has been nuts with getting the house in order and ready to sell. I was able to plant some flowers to help staging for our open house.

After nap we headed to the Arboretum to see the blooming crab apples.

Got some fun photos of the kids amongst the trees too.

Kyle was even able to get me with each kid, easier than trying to get us all together.

Just like the week prior, it felt much warmer at our house than it did at the ball park. The wind was a little chilly, although it was warmer than the previous week.
