I've been a little MIA around here lately. Two big reasons were this guy (the grown one) traveling a lot over the last couple months and also some major home renovations. Things aren't complete, but at least my partner is back in town...yay! Another big factor has been the kids' sports schedule (and Liv hasn't even started any summer activities yet). The soccer season is winding down (although they practice all year), but baseball and softball are in full swing and tons of fun!
My Mom has not been feeling well lately, so I was thrilled to be able to bring her some flowers from my yard. The irises were my Grandma's plants, so that makes it even more cool (in my opinion). They made my car smell amazing!
EJ bridged to Brownies last night and she was so excited and proud. They sang us some songs and walked over an actual bridge. Older sibling scouts were on hand to escort them across the bridge and give them their new pin as well.
After the ceremony, we had a little dessert reception. Each parent brought a dessert to share, but this parent had no interest in baking this weekend. So instead, I made a bunch of these rainbow licorice treat bags (lazy, but cute).
The ceremony was at 6pm and I decided to wait dinner until we got home. This would not have been a problem except for the fact that we have been eating super early for the last couple weeks to accommodate the sports/event calendar. Livie did not fare well. She wore her "Brownies Rule" shirt to the ceremony and I was hoping to get a cute photo of her and EJ. Maybe something like this...
But no...this is the photo I actually got. Classic!
I'm going to try to be a better poster. Summer vacation starts in one week! YAY!
