We had such a busy week! Aaron and I are getting ready to leave town for my marathon on Friday, Grandma is flying in on Thursday and I wanted everything to be ready by then! Sadly Aaron and I will be missing Camilla's dance recital. While we are bummed we decided to make a big deal out of her dress rehearsal.
She looked so lovely, was just thrilled with the whole thing and danced beautifully.
Oh my gosh I just love watching her dance. She really does light up on stage.
It was also teacher appreciation week and while I was at Target picking up gifts for the kids' teachers I also got a few things for the kids. I can not go to Target and not buy 1000 things. But I FINALLY bought new underwear for Carson. True fact, I have not bought him new underwear since I potty trained him, 4 years ago. This kid just keeps growing up and not out and still fits. It sounds gross but I bought a lot and they didn't have holes, until recently. Well Carson was just so thrilled with this. who knew he would be so excited? He wanted me to take pictures in every single pair to send to Dad. "They are a little different, they're kind of like shorts." When grandma arrived he immediately wanted to show her. :) Why is this boy just the best?
Camilla got new flip flops and of course needed her picture taken as well.
And yes he wanted pictures front and back. :)
On Wednesdays we have no activities after school. I LOVE it! We just stay home all afternoon, no rush to get home work, piano, dinner, etc. done. There is time to play and talk about the day and I actually make dinner. It was a gorgeous day and the kids wanted to play school. I looked back in the backyard and saw Carson reading a book, eating a whole container of mango slices and Camilla eating strawberries and singing songs. My heart was full. This, this is childhood to me. These are the memories I want my children making, not running around to a million things. I want to be better.
When Spencer spotted them he started banging on the door and Camilla immediately scooped him up and brought him outside and took care of him. I am very blessed to live the life I do.
