Miscellaneous May

I always thought that once both girls were in school {even part-time} that I would have a little more "free time" to work out, keep the house clean, meal plan, but as it turns out, I'm sort of looking forward to summer break to have some free time back!  The end of the school year has been busy with teacher appreciation week and end of the year projects {that I sort of inserted myself into volunteering for and making much more complicated, but hey}.  Anywho, the old blogging at night has been replaced with making memory books for kindergarteners, and my faithful audience of two {hi nana & poppy!} has had to wait to see what all we have been up to {as if they don't already know}.

➸➸ Olivia had field day at her school two days after we got back from Disneyland.  What a rough week she had!  Her field day was mostly water games outside.  The field looked like a pig sty, but I think all the kids had a blast!





After field day, the neighborhood crew came over and went swimming in our pool.  They are nuts because the pool is still way too cold, in my opinion!


➸➸  The moms of two of Liv's friends and I decided to take the five days of Teacher Appreciation Week at school and split them up between us and have the gift be from the three girls.  Do the math...five divided by 3 means there is still a day or two on our own.  One of those days was supposed to be giving the teacher a flower...so we went the route of flower pens.  They are so cheap looking, but it's the thought that counts, right?  We ended up making enough for even the specials teachers.  David helped her pass them out and she was so excited!




➹ This was my day - we did little gift cards to Sephora along with a cute nail file and nail polish! ➹


The girls planned a special lunch with their teacher and favorite aid for that Friday, but one of the girls was sick and so we rescheduled for this past Friday.  The girls felt so special having Olive Garden at school with their teacher!



➸➸  I got to attend my first Mother's Day Tea with Sydney.  It was so cute seeing her sing her songs.  She made some cute little crafts for me and even served me my yummy snacks.  Love my sweet girl.



➸➸ The girls have been rehearsing for their dance recitals for their performance at the end of the month.  They both have to have curly hair and neither of them have hair that holds curls very well.  So, we have been practicing with little twists in their wet hair at night, and when they stay in, the curls look really cute!  One night we did five twists in Liv's hair and ohmyword it was so curly when she woke up.  She did not like it, but I think it might be perfect for recital night.  It's amazing how Sydney's hair curls up in it too!  It totally changes the way she looks.







Two more weeks of May!!  Whoohoooo.

As always I love the cool pictures that show what the girls have been up too. I am so glad you are still blogging (even if sometime LIFE gets in the way of doing it often).

Jalen and Olivia are so cute together!!

Love Sydney in her grown up look in curls.
