a post of epic proportions

may was pretty epic. with a new baby, family in town, end of school preparations, i kept thinking, so much happened and this post will include every single bit of it. a post of epic proportions!!!

the weather warmed up and we jumped on the tramp with the water hose. 

grandma sandy visited. dress up clothes were donned. EPIC SEQUINS on grandma sandy's part. we were fortunate to celebrate mother's day with my mom. i planned a gigantic post about how great my mom is, but that obviously didn't happen. but i will say, one of the most important things my mom ever taught me was to always look out for others who may need a friend. 

we made a lot of my mom's famous blondies. this was the pan i attacked single-handedly.

 we visited thomas' office. his office happens to overlook a baseball stadium. it's pretty cool. 

athena made her presence known by pooping all over my mom. a repeat of scarlett pooping all over my mom 5 years ago.

i implemented a new job chart. it's been pretty effective. the prize at the end of the week is to go downtown or what a movie. which we already do. hopefully they won't catch on to that part.

reagan had his awards day at school. he received the "timex" award, for the child most aware of the daily schedule and staying on schedule and the "sense of humor" award, voted on by his class and the kid making the most jokes.
reagan and his delightful teacher miss waldrop. i was worried when i met miss waldrop that she wouldn't be a very good teacher because she was so pretty and young. i was so wrong. she was a wonderful teacher who just happened to be pretty and young.

scarlett had her last day of pre-k. she learned a TON but i don't think she will miss her teachers.

gratuitous family pictures:

the face i get when i say no to something, like that giant lollipop.

the balloon festival was too expensive to attend, so we just drove around chasing hot air balloons.

most epic excuse for being late to church- there was a bird flying around the inside of our house

the end. sorry for the weak commentary. that's just how epic this month was. i'm at a loss for words.

I can't stop laughing about your late for church excuse! And pretty sure Thomas has the coolest office ever.

did the bird totally freak you out??? we've had several that are dumb enough to fly in to our back porch through the busted screen windows and can't find their way out. i can't ever stand to get close enough to them to shoo them out.

you look so great! i love that striped top you're wearing in the picture. and the picture of scarlett with the lollipop is hiLARious. i love it when i get those kind of faces from my kids. hahahaha.

hope you're doing okay. it's always hard to transition when a new baby comes. hopefully june will not be quite as epic as may...

I love her face with that lollipop. So adorable. And you are looking fabulous by the way.

Your Mom is one of the ladies who I always think that I'd like to be like. She always has a good thing to say about anyone she ever met. Best quality ever!
