We’ve almost made it, we are on the home stretch to the last day of school!!! Woo-hoo, we made it-I made it, ha! 

Our school year was extended by 6 or 7 days due to snow and ice, but I am welcoming summer break with open arms…this has been one loooonngg drawn out winter!

Field Trips-

This is the time of year where all the big class field trips are happening, the field days, the rewards for reaching their a.r. goals and attendance incentives are happening; so just about every day there’s something.

On Tuesday Maddie’s class went to an indoor community center that had an indoor pool with a lazy river, whirlpool, slide and climber. 

I was so excited that I was able to go on this field trip with her, only because they let me bring Naomi along. Otherwise I wouldn’t of been able to go. She was the only sibling that came along.

 I can’t believe Maddie went down that big enclosed slide, this is the first time she has attempted one and she loved it!

For lunch break all the school kids enjoyed pizza! Naomi and I ate our packed lunch out by the pool and waited for the kids to finish. I had a blast watching them!

Doctors Appointments-

For the past 3 years the timing has just been that the girls’ eye exams and all 3 kids’ 6 month teeth cleaning fall in the end of April or beginning of May! Which is not the best timing on my part because then I’m running around like a chicken with my head cut off getting everyone to their appointments!

My plan now is to have the girls eye appointments in the summer if I can help it and all 3 kids go to the dentist on the same day, doctors etc. 

Visiting Dad-

Last weekend the kids & I went and visited Jarret instead of him coming home! We got out of the house and visited Manhattan, ks. This was the first time I did a road trip by myself with the kids. 

It was fun, we visited the local parks, swam in the pool, watched t.v. in the hotel, relaxed and spent family time together.

At this point Maddie was done! When Maddie is done, she is done and so she just laid back in Jarret’s arms and looked up at the tree tops. When I’m done, can I just lay down and look at the tree tops? Ha.

It was great weather last weekend and our temperatures have been improving every week!

The track-

Our town doesn’t have a high school running track, so if you want a designated area to walk, you walk the cemetery. When we first moved here 3 years ago I was thought it was weird, who walks the cemetery…?

But I guess it’s a thing and you actually really don’t even think about it…it’s just kind of normal.

Since the weather was so nice this week, a welcome change, I decided to walk the “track”. I love walking outside!

Thanks for reading my little check in and what we’ve been up to, where are almost at the end of the school year, yah!!!
