last day of school & summer plans

Today was the last day of school. To top it off it was only a 1/2 day. I really don't understand why they do that but it's fun for the kids to play I guess. Remington came home covered with autographs on his arms. I guess they had free reign because he had his kindergarten teacher, a 2nd grader, and a girl who wrote her name and phone number on his arm. I think that he is a little young for girls numbers but he tells me that she wrote it not him. Really lets be honest nothing really academic got done the last week of school. The kids had a beach day where they played water games and then the sprinklers gpt turned on. They had a garage sale. The had earned "mustang bucks" which is fake money and then took unwanted items and sold them and bought other things also. We sent junk and he came home with more junk. the had a luau and bubble day and also a game day. WOW so much fun I wish I was a first grader again. However there was no celebrating for us since the 2 younger boys are sick again and Remington had to go to the doctor with me. We did go to Target after and I bought the 2 oldest light sabers. Coleton insisted on sleeping with his.
So now begins our summer. I am afraid that it is going to go by WAY to fast. Remington is taking tennis lessons, swimming lessons, & is in a reading club at school. I guess it will be worse when I have more than 1 child in lessons.
We are going to Yellowstone for a vacation and are sending off 2 missionaries. Gage is turning 1 in a couple of weeks and I am a little sad. Why do my babies have to grow up? Oh life is flying by. It will be christmas again before I know it. I was going to save up this year and not try to skimp on my budget. I better get going on that I still have a little bit of time.

My little Gage LOVES his food. The other day I was feeding him strawberries and the kid couldn't get enough of them. He would scream at me if I didn't give them to him fast enough. It was hilarious. He was having a hard time picking them up and so being the very smart baby that he is he put his mouth on the table to pick them up that way. I was laughing so hard. here are a few pictures. enjoy!

Happy Mothers Day!

Yesterday was a very nice day if you ask me! My sweet husband got up with the kids and I got to sleep in. That does not happen very often. I even got breakfast in bed and a chance to relax in the tub uninterupted. My boys weren't fighting and I got to see my favorite mom's and mom's to be. I went for a walk with Remington and enjoyed the beautiful weather. I love this time of year and the chance to remember why it is good to be a mom and have a wonderful mother. I want to try and be more like my mom. She is an amazing woman and I love her!
