This April & May have been so crazy happy busy that I haven't sat down to blog them yet. So here's a quick review.
Women's Conference - it changes my view on life every time I go. This year's lessons:
1. My children are my best investment. Don't think of them as "taking" time but what God's given me time for. (A great lesson to remember before the back to back field trips in May)
2. People are more important than paperwork - especially Joaquin. Sounds basic but hard to remember when I just have this one more bill to pay . . .
3. Be excited to build a new home - it's not just one more thing to do. It's what we've saved & dreamed of for 15+ years.
Joaquin & I were so happy to spend a few days together in San Diego, CA with the NAPA 5 Star program. We loved visiting Mission Beach, Balboa Park, & eating dinner/touring the USS Midway.
We had fun dropping by Shoshone Falls with the kids on day. I haven't been there since before Quinn was born - wow! So beautiful and only an hour away.
Fish Hatchery with Josh highlight? He found inch worms that every boy in the 1st grade envied.
Jessi had a great AR Water Party we loved visiting. She the massive slip n slide.
This was after the Hillcrest Elementary Reading Celebration. Halle had waited 2 long hours before she got a turn on the jumping house, but oh was it worth the wait!
I had a home builder we are thinking of using encourage me to get on Pinterest & start "pinning" pix I like of kitchens, bathrooms, windows, etc. Well gee, ok. Here were some other great ideas I've used - the cool messy bun & hair twist and teacher appreciation presents (rolo's with a hershey kiss)
Quinn did a fabulous job at her piano recital. She played "Evening at the Symphony."
