Kindergarten Graduation

My sweet Lucas will be able to say he is in 1st grade. He tells everyone that his mom made him do kindergarten TWO TIMES! But I promise you it was a fantastic choice because now he will thrive in 1st grade. 

The little graduation was delightful, funny, heart warming and very kindergarten-y. Basically when you dream of such an event it was everything you'd think of.

with mum

With Mrs Schafer (the queen of kindergarten!!!) 
Lucas adored he and she made him feel so special. I am pretty sure he will never forget her:)

With buddy Owen

The whole class being adorable goofballs


Snake hunters

Lucas came running in the house squealing with delight;
"Mom! Mom! Jack caught a snake in our yard!!!"

I walked outside and saw Jack holding a snake with a giant smile across his face. Walking into my garage I said "oh no you don't bring him in here."

They walked around our street showing the other kids their new friend. 

Boys + snakes + freedom = a happy memory and NEW OBSESSION

Awesome April

Ben had another birthday!!! funny how fast those years seem to past when you get older. He turned 34 back in April and he is my very best friend. I love so much and I know I drive him rather crazy but feel so thankful that he chose to spend his life with me dancing or doing a headstand by his side.

We skied a little more in April. Loveland was good to us but this particular day someone smashed into me, sending me flying and then the wind was CRAZY.

Jack became quite obsessed with making cupcakes after his success with these butterfly cakes!

Ben and I started my long awaited "shiplap" adventure

The boys love to get every pillow out and put them on the stairs

More "shiplap"

There was a lot of MUSICAL stuff happening in April


Jack became rather proficient at mowing the lawn

Easter happened and it wasn't snowing!!!!! 
Egg hunt in the back yard

Shiplap finished!

Fishing at the lake up the top of our street!

School arts night!

Jack was the villain!
He was superb.

Sunday's are better when we get out in nature, these pictures were from a fun walk we did not far from home.



Sussical the musical was the show we did for 1st grade - 5th graders.  
Sussical the musical is probably my favorite musical right now. You can't help but smile when you sing the songs and feel your heart grow. I adore these mini humans; they are super!!!! Just about every dress rehearsal and show I found myself all weepy with joy and gratitude that I got to be a part of the adventure.

Friday night and Saturday day I was tossing and turning and vomiting. It was rough to say the least. Feeling so yucky my heart was super sad because I knew I'd be missing the last two performances of our glorious kiddos!!! It broke my heart not being there but I tried to reflect on all the blessings!

Jack has made wonderful friendships.
I watched SO many kids grow tremendously in confidence.
I get to work with top notch people who are talented, kind and dear to my heart.
I got to watch the two casts bring to life stories with encouraging messages.
I got to be creative with my choreography and try new things.
I realize that a heart can always grow bigger and have more capacity to love.
I prayed with those I worked with for the health of some of our kiddos who were sick.
I told more Henry the goat stories.
I have lots of lovely memories 💗

Alice in Wonderland Cast!
A bunch a fantastic humans who are kind, talented, thoughtful, hardworking, radiate light and goodness. It was a joy working with them and seeing them exceed my expectations.
I'm so gutted I missed our last performers but super thrilled I got to be apart of all the others 😘😘😘
