Week(s) in Review April 10 - May 6

Wow!  I can't believe we are almost a week into May already!  Pretty soon it will be summer!  Here is a recap of what we have been up to since our last week in review!
Yep...We had pancakes again!  Really it's not that we eat pancakes all that often, I just seem to have the camera whenever we do eat them.  But I'll admit, there are days that the boys and I declare it "Pajama and Pancakes Day" and stay in our PJs all day and eat pancakes! 

We had a number of friends come over at the beginning of the month including the Sproles who invited us to a fun playdate at the park near our house!


Which included playing in the mud!


We had to make a trip to the doctor's office for Meredith and Jackson ...

The boys were excited we got the super hero room!

John got to catch up with our neighbor's grandson, Chase...It looks like  a pretty interesting discussion...

James taught the kids how to play kick ball...


We had another fun playdate with my friend Hannah at the park!

We made another trip to the doctor's office...This time for Bella...

The boys were excited we got the super hero room again!

We did a family camp out in the livingroom...

The next morning we headed to church to meet for a ward  service project in our community.  This year, we cleaned up local cemeteries.

We went to various cemeteries around town and picked up trash, pulled weeds, cut branches, etc.

I loved that this year's project was a "family" project.


Afterwards, Cardi stacked up all the mattresses in the livingroom and made a nice bed...

which was very comfortable!

We went shopping at Walmart...They had this cute display in the back of the store!

We went to Florida to see my brother who was having brain surgery.

We got to spend some quality time with our family in Florida.

Some of us even got to learn a new skill...

Others of us thought "Hey...I can do that!"

and so they did!

We ended up with sick kids again and

Back at the doctor's office!

2 weeks later we were feeling better!

We decided to get cable...

That poor cable guy worked really hard to install a new line to the house...

My friend, Hannah, stopped by with flowers and cleaning supplies...She hadn't heard from us for a while and wanted to make sure we were ok...

And Jackson...who is 5 in case you forgot...

is officially registered  for KINDERGARTEN!

After registering Jackson for school, he helped print off the school newsletter...

This is Bella's class art work.  Before I forget, Bella's artwork was selected to be put permanently on display in the city of Oak Ridge Student Art Work.  There is an award ceremony on Monday night!  I'm sure I will snap a few pictures to share!

Things went a lot faster when this awesome kid showed up to help!



Then our sweet Bella showed up!

She read to Jackson while Cardi helped me put the newsletters in the teachers' boxes...

Which didn't take too long!

As part of his registration packet, the school gave each kindergartener a new pack of crayons and brand new scissors.  Our Jackson wasted no time in crafting his own projects at home...


I just wish he hadn't used his new scissors on my $90 slip cover...



 
Today we had a  fun playdate with friends..which is good b/c we haven't been feeling well and so we have not been  out of the house for almost 2 weeks...I'm SO grateful for great friends!

I'm also grateful that our kids have such great friends!  Hmmm....John really did have a shirt on when we arrived...
