It’s been forever since I just had a chance to check in and post about life! We are welcoming summer with open arms and couldn’t be more excited about summer events!
Eli will be going to kindergarten in just a few short months and I seriously can not believe it! I’m a mixed mess of emotions. I’m so proud of him and can’t wait to see how much he grows socially and academically! We have been working hard on kindergarten readiness skills. He tests my patience on every level most days if I’m honest but it’s also very rewarding to watch his growth. We have already gone to his school for a tour, an entrance assessment and kindergarten night.
For kindergarten night, he went to a classroom while parents got acquainted with the curriculum and expectations. When we picked Eli up, we asked him how it was and what he did, he just looked at us and said, “I don’t really want to talk about it.” Typical, right?! Here we are these excited and super proud parents of our first born kiddo heading off to school and he has nothing to say. lol! :) He gave little brother a train picture he colored since trains are his favorite. Little E kept telling his big brother, “I really like your new school.” He is the sweetest, most supportive younger brother ever!
Just an update on Little E, he is still our silly, littlest love bug! He’s three years old but if you ask him he’ll tell you he’s five just like big brother. He is the pickiest eater and if he could just nibble his way through the day he totally would. He helped me pick out this pool that we also had last year so we’re excited to get it set up this weekend. We have been just using an old baby pool in the meantime but they’ve still enjoyed it. We have also stocked up on this insect repellant since the ticks and mosquitos are so terrible this year. We don’t want to take any chances but we love to play outside!
We are super excited to welcome the newest member of our family in June!! My brother and sister in law will be having their newest baby boy so soon! I’m so excited to see his sweet face and snuggle him. There will now be the crazy 6! Between my two boys and their four boys, there are 6 crazy boy cousins ages 6 and under! It’s seriously the best time to watch the cousins grow up together and they love each other a ton! It’s one of the greatest blessings living close to each other.
Vacation time! We have a couple vacations scheduled and we are really looking forward to just getting away and having some family time. We will be meeting my in-laws in South Carolina and then a trip to Shenandoah later this summer. Both are just chill trips with no big plans except some beach time, pool time, and family time.
Thanks for reading along and getting caught up with me! So I could do all the talking but what I’d love is to hear from you! Drop a comment below with what you are up to this weekend!
