It might not be #royalbaby news, but here’s our April “best of.” We’re staying busy on this speeding train called #lifewithkids My boy turned 14. It’s staggering. Cause yesterday he looked like this:And now he’s going to high school orientation. Good thing he knows Edna, the cookie queen. I’ve many spies employed. The highlight of my boy’s life was getting a post card from soccer hero Clint Dempsey. Like, best day EVER! He’s been waiting since last November and had all but given up hope. If I ever get fan mail, I shall be prompt 🙂
The boy is such a good sport:Cake courtesy of Grandma Heather, a boy’s dream: #meatandpotatoes and surrounded by girls, girls, and more girls. At least he has his dad and his dog. And the pink bunny ears.
Another highlight: the passports came. Because we’ve been at Hogwarts for so long, my husband’s summer sabbatical arrived! #Europe! I could write a whole post on the complexities and headaches of getting passports for six. Never mind. #exciting!
Easter was filled with lots of cousins, TWO grandmas, and General Conference #love And this #peep cake Good thing I’m still drinking my smoothies every morning. #nirvana#whoopsy
Paige begged and begged for this green bok choy. Thrilled, I congratulated myself on being such a nutritiously-minded mother who has raised her children well. “You’re sure you’ll eat it?” Actually no. “I want it because It’s such a cool fan!” I didn’t buy it.
My wonderful Ma came to visit. She cleans, tells stories, and pushes my cart. And plays with apps. Did you know YouTube has the most amazing hair tutorials? Here’s my Anatomy & Physiology class. We are studying the reproductive system. Nothing like the real thing right in front of you! My panel of experts were awesome – and hopefully my teens will not have sex 🙂 Just saying’.
And yellow and orange-flowered pants And running shoes! We are back outside in the dark o’clock wee hours of the morning. With Asics. #happy My running buddy ran the Boston Marathon this year. And makes me want to run something big again. Very inspiring.
Brother Glenn ran the London Marathon and sends me texts. Do I want to commit to a marathon? #indecisive My Brynnie-boo ran in her first track meet. The heart can hardly take it. The 5th grade 4×4 relay! My boy handing off the baton. #love
How was your month? Did you write is all down, too?
