Busy Bees!

We’re pretty much in a constant state of chaos over here.

And that’s okay.  It’s a good chaos.

So, as usual, we’ve been busy, busy bees!

We finished our school year around Memorial Day, and it feels sooooooo good to be done.

HOW is it possible that I have a 7th grader, a 4th grader, and a Kindergartener {and soon to be 3 year old!}??

Our days have been spent OUTSIDE enjoying this glorious sunshine!


We’ve had an unusually sunny and warm May/June, and I am loving every part of it!

We’ve especially loved spending time down by our creek and pond.

Jeremy’s been keeping it clear of brush for us, and we’ve had such fun exploring.


The other night we headed down to do some fishin’, and caught this crawfish!


Yep, those are teeny, tiny baby crawfish, that little Mama is carrying around!!


We’re finally getting our property in shape, years later 😉

Last Spring we poured concrete out front.

Last Fall we planted grass.

And this Spring, Jeremy has started me a ROSE GARDEN! 

Ahhhh, I’m in Heaven!

So far we have 17 rose bushes, with plans to plant many more.

As if that hasn’t kept us busy enough, the girls had their end of the year Dance Recital last weekend.


Jeremy had to work, so us girls got together with our sweet dancer friends to get ready together.

We had so much fun.

Makeup, hairspray, costumes galore!


A wonderful night of dance, memories, and friends.

Both Sierra and Makenna took Lyrical together this year.

How it warms my heart to watch them onstage.

So, that’s my catch up post!

The next few weeks include photo sessions, beach trips, pageant-watching, birthdays, and celebrations!

Ahhhhh, welcome Summer!
