A big post about our camping trip with tons of pictures is coming. But, these were some pics on my phone for the last few weeks that I wanted to post. We got home from camping on Monday and it's been a whirlwind with work and the kids being out of school.
I love my kids dearly, but I'm so used to working in silence. The talk...A LOT! I don't know where they get that from. :) It took me three hours to do a grocery store ad that normally takes about 90 minutes. They ask questions, they want stuff, they fight. All of which requires me to change focus from work and focus on them.
But these days are short, so I'm trying to embrace them and our time together. But, it's entirely possible that I hid in my closet with a bag of Doritos on Tuesday for 30 minutes.
This kid is adorable and he makes random noises for no reason ALL DAY LONG. Here he is with his fidget spinner. He had to have one. He even slept with it for a few days. Seriously, who knew these things were going to be such a hit. It's literally some bearings and it goes round and round. It is fun though, even David and I like to play with it.
Even the cat likes the fidget spinner.
Emily brought me home this pillow she made in Home Ec. It's so cute! I made this awful hot dog pillow in Jr. High. Remember that one, Mom? It was ugly and not fluffy and I had to sew on mustard. I hate mustard. Anyway, I like Emily's pillow a lot better.
The kids had all their award assemblies for school. There's Emily smack dab in the middle for Principal's List. She made Principal's List all year!
And here's the much smaller group for perfect attendance for the semester.
Here's Ben getting Principal's List. He got all A's all year too!
And here he is for Perfect Attendance.
Then, a small group of kids that had perfect attendance ALL YEAR got called up.
And they got a Kindle Fire! This is Ben's second year in a row with perfect attendance, so he now has 2 Kindle Fires. Since they are the same edition, he was sweet enough to give the new one to Noah.
And I don't have a picture, but Noah brought home a certificate for Perfect Attendance for the quarter too! Geez, my kids were really healthy this year!
Ok, so that catches us up on the last week of school. I'll get to camping in a few days.
