Our Friday Fun-day!

There are so many exciting things going on right now with the end of the school year (last day this coming Wednesday) and the start of summer! Most of the hoopla started yesterday with a big water party in Chase's class and an author celebration in Trent's class

Being in preschool, Chase actually has a fun party at the end of every month, but this one was over the top (and very wet!) with water tables, little swimming pools, and HUGE popsicles! Trent even got to attend part of it and loved getting to partake in the yummy treats. Do you recognize the sweet blonde haired girl that Chase is playing with? They had so much fun!

Trent's author celebration showcased different types of writing that he had done throughout the school year - the kids were divided into tables and took turns reading us their stories in small groups. It was adorable - Trent had one story about when his baby sister was born, one about his brother, and then the rest were about.....yes, you guessed it: Pokemon. {Insert Groan} Thankfully that Pokemon theme was not unique to Trent. I think we need to diversify our interests...

After a long walk to the local shops and a stop at the deli for a kid-friendly dinner, we tucked the little ones into bed and Scott exercised his muscles by hefting our new picture onto the mantle. It surprisingly fits, so now we just have to find the right height to hang it! Thank you so much to sweet MIL and FIL for sending us this special picture! It used to hang in their living room, and now we get to enjoy it. Thankfully it will go perfectly with the new color scheme we have in mind!

So we're off to enjoy the day, including the first dip in the pool for the summer! 
I hope everyone enjoys their weekend!
