The last two weeks

 I think blogging has fallen further and further down my priority list.  I'm going to try to do it more often soon!  As for right now, I am going to recap the last two weeks.  Brooklyn enlisted us for her picnic.  Did you notice she has celery, a red onion and carrots as part of her picnic?  Strange mix.  can't complain about the kielbasa though!
 We also got some swimming in of course.
 As the end of the school year wrapped up we had a few things to attend.  This was his milestone presentation.  Parents wrote a little note to their kids.  This is me reading to him.
 Then the kids read their note to their parents.  Most of the kids said something like "This is a special journal and I want to share our thoughts and dreams." Not my kid.  His started with "Dear mom and dad, This is Micah.  Your son."  Love him!
 So it was really a sweet thing to do.
 Another case of things falling further down the priority list.  I shared this once before and everyone loved it.  I think we all think everyone is more on top of things than we are.  Guess what?  I'm not!  I think I fly by the seat of my pants a lot of the time!
 This was the last Town Hall Meeting for school.  They did a presentation and sang a song. 
 Then, they did awards.  Micah was called up for Excellence in Math.  He was shocked!  I mean mouth wide open, running to the front with his hands up in the air shocked.  It was hilarious!
He was so proud of himself.  He credited his fingers and calculator watch with his success!
 Last day of school in the same clothes he wore the first day.  He is getting so big!
That night, we celebrated the beginning of summer by taking a drive down to Laguna and getting gelato and walking down by the beach.  They make the weirdest poses.
The sunset was beautiful!
We have been pretty lazy so far this summer.  We soaked up some sun (a little too much) and play some mean rounds of Go Fish.  We have a lot of plans and it should be a busy summer!

This is us!

 Is it just me or does life get busier and faster as the kids get older?  Anyways, this is what we have been up to lately.  This boysenberry bush has been in my family for 100+ years.  Although we don't have a lot of antiques, we do get to enjoy these berries and the jam that comes from them!
 We spend a lot of time outside.  This is a typical outfit.  Don't you go triking in your fairy wings and princess dress too?
 We have been swimming (or wading in Brooklyn's case).  She starts lessons soon!
 Papa is always fun to swim with.
 Micah is about to get launched to the other side of the pool.  Can you tell he loves it?
 This is me by the way.  I wanted to get a quick silhouette at 18 weeks.  Yes, I am showing, but I think people still think I am just chubby.  Oh well, I will be large and in charge soon!
 Sunday, B came home with this from church (since we have conference this Sunday).  It is a letter for Father's Day.  If you click on it, you can read it and the funny things she says.
 Oh and this is her triking on her back.  Totally her idea.
 Micah doing what he does best, racing!
 This is B saying "Mom, take my picture!"
Oh my they are growing up fast and I can't believe we are going to be having another one to add to this crazy bunch.  I don't know how we are going to balance it all, but we are going to figure it out somehow.  Flying by the seat of our pants seems to work!
