Day At The Farm

A couple of weeks ago, Paxton and Coppelia’s preschool class had a field trip to a local farm. Clint and I both got to go and we had a great day. The older three boys had their homeschool enrichment so it was fun just being the littles and us. The day was beautiful and the…

Men In Tights…

Caedmon had his Spring dance recital this past weekend and it was really fun. He was in two dance classes this year, a regular ballet class and also a boys dance class. His regular dance class did their spring recital piece to a selection of music from the ballet, Coppélia. He really liked that he…

So We’re Not OK….

Yeah, we’re not doing too good over here. It’s May 21st and I had to send snow pants and boots with Paxton and Coppélia to preschool this morning because it snowed. SNOWED. It’s May 21st. AND IT SNOWED. Their summer break starts on Thursday (the older boys finished up homeschool last week). SUMMER BREAK AND…

Weekend Coyote Ridge Hike

On Sunday on our way home from church we decided to hike Coyote Ridge. We pass the trail ridge each week and Clint and I have biked/ran it but the kids have never been on the trail. We planned ahead and packed hiking clothes and lunch. The kids were excited and ate their lunches as…

Happy 6th Birthday Edric!

After a month full of adoption camp fundraiser, marathon, Easter, and ballet we finished the month celebrating Edric turning 6 on Tuesday. We are having his little friend birthday party this weekend but we still celebrated him for his actual birthday. Edric loves hot dogs and so we had his birthday dinner a few days…

A Mid Summer’s Night 2019….

Over the weekend we were transported back to the time of William Shakespeare and his comic play, A Mid Summer Night’s Dream via the Centennial State Ballet’s production. Caedmon was a purple bug and I was a backstage mom/doctor/extra set of hands. A few months ago after we got the casting as rehearsals were just…

Coppelia 2 Years Home!

On Sunday not only did we celebrate Easter but we also celebrated Coppelia’s Family Day. And she let everyone know it as well. Especially that she was going to get to eat Mochi Balls (ice cream that is wrapped in a rice paste that the kids love and we use to celebrate family days and…

Easter 2019

We did Easter over a couple of days this year. I’m finally getting smart and realizing that trying to do Easter baskets and egg find on Sunday morning while also trying to get everyone ready for church just doesn’t work. At all. So we did Easter baskets and eggs on Saturday morning which made Sunday…

Desert Rats Trail Marathon 2019

I found myself Saturday morning running many many miles in Western Colorado. We couldn’t have asked for a better day. It started really cool before the sun came up while we were waiting at the start line. I think it was in the. Mid 30s. Clint got a few photos of me waiting for everything…

Garden 2019…

So I said I wasn’t going to do a garden this year but I might have changed my mind. I love to garden but with 5 kiddos and life I have started the past two years with good intentions only to end with dried up dead plants and very healthy weeds. I had also decided…
