It’s been a busy few weeks around here. Kaila’s class performed Hamlet for their Shakespeare play this year. (Every year, the fourth, fifth, and sixth graders perform a Shakespeare play.) It was really fun to watch. Kaila was Queen Gertrude, Hamlet’s mother, and she was very regal.
St. Patrick’s Day was also a good time. The kids had a special sweet breakfast, and I put green food coloring in their bowls ahead of time so the milk turned green when they added it.
They also enjoyed a special St. Patrick’s Day lunchbox. And I did my darndest to create a shamrock hairdo for Emmie. I think we were mildly successful!
The kiddos also enjoyed a beverage of choice at dinnertime.
At the end of the week, Emmie and Charlie had a pajama read-a-thon at school, and I couldn’t resist the matching jammies.
And I may or may not have bought them pillow pets just for the occasion. Listen, these are my last babies, I’m gonna spoil them if I want to!!
The next week was Spring Break, which we really used to relax. We went to the movies, out to lunch (for Kobe beef hotdogs!),
stayed in jammies and played Legos for hours,went to a new park,and watched Kaila at another meet.(that first place girl better watch out!!) 🙂
Over the weekend, we got ready for Easter with egg dying.
And then the bunny delivered his goods!! (Color coded of course, don’t you know the bunny loves organization as much as I do??)
In the morning, the egg hunt was on before my eyes were fully opened.
And then the baskets were discovered. And 5.2 million pounds of high fructose corn syrup were consumed.
And then it was the mad rush to look presentable and be at church by 9. We made it by 9:05 because some mom decided we needed pictures.
At church, the kids presented a banner they made on Fat Tuesday.
And then they hunted for eggs. And candy. Again. You really can’t beat being a kid on Easter.
Looking back at the past few weeks, I think these kiddos are pretty lucky. And I’m thinking the parents around here are pretty lucky, too.
