On any given day - you can find us at Starbucks. It's sad when your kids "know their order" there. And mind do.

Jack the Quarterback

A few months ago Jack came home from school with a paper about flag football. Tyson and I have always been on the same page about football....NO. We have always told Jack that we love his brain too much for him to play football. BUT - Jack was SO excited about flag football and really wanted to play.  We heard him out...he made some good points...and we decided to let him try it out for the spring.  He got "drafted" to the that was a WIN. And in his first game scored two TDs. 
He likes it. I'm not convinced that he LOVES it...but it's still early in the season.  I have a feeling he will be paying closer attention to the Lions this year...lets hope they're good.

Mother's Day with Josie

A couple weeks ago - Josie's school celebrated Mother's Day with all the moms. It was a super fun, super special day with my favorite girl.  She performed a few songs and showered me with gifts. We had tea & snacks together...and she discovered she likes bagels. BIG DAY.  Can't believe her first year of preschool is almost over!

Nolan Never Stops...

Kid can find food all day long. He has learned that mom says he goes and asks Josie. 
 On this particular night...Crying.
We have had two really, really, really awful nights at the lake with him. Up-all-night...In-Yo-Face nights. And they broke me.
 Getting his way.
He's a demanding kid. He knows what he wants and he expects you to get it for him...yesterday.
{side note: This is the classic lemon water from Costco...or otherwise known as 1/4 lemonade, 3/4 water. He thinks it's a super special drink.}
 Being cute.
I mean...seriously...even when he makes me crazy - he doesn't stop being cute.
 oh wait...
Maybe this qualifies as "not cute" - this is his "I'm so ticked at you, mom" face. Had to capture it. Even though I feel like I'll see it a lot in my life.

 Wanting to GO.
He is a man on the move. Always moving. Unless he's sleeping or watching a few minutes of Mickey...he is moving. Which explains why my blog has suffered. I'm NOT blaming him...I'm just saying, three kids has me like...Zzzz.
