purple girl

Yes it is spring and you would think hats are no longer necessary. However our temps have been a bit cold around here and her old hats were looking, well rather, Old. So I knitted up a quick hat in a few nights time and she loves it. She wears it all day and would not take it off today when the temps finally reached 70*. Such a silly girl. But she does look adorable in it and it is a pretty awesome pattern. Two of my boys are asking for one of their own. Just not until the fall.


During the month of April, Harkin took a superhero class. It was a mix between gymnastics and ninja warrior for 4 and 5 year olds. He absolutely loved it and such a great time.We're taking a break at the moment since soccer has started, but he is planning out his schedule so he can return.

95 years

We made a quick trip to CT a few weekends ago. Less than 48 hours, but we needed to celebrate a very special lady. Eric's grandmother turned 95 years old and is still going strong. She's happy and healthy and full of spunk. It was great for her to see all of the kids and they had a fun time together hanging out and playing.

mud season walk

We took a walk up the hill after having some candy on Easter Sunday. It is the beginning of mud season.

As we were trying to cross the stream Harkin stepped in the wrong place and his shoes got stuck. He was so surprised that they came right off his feet. It was pretty funny. We got them out and washed them off,

Then they ran down the hill to get off the energy from the blue candy-(dye anyone)?

The next day's conversation in the bathroom was quite funny. Bright green poop! That explains why we don't eat junk- this mama tells him. It's just not natural. He'll remember that for a bit. Hoping longer. Oh, the joys of motherhood.

easter bunny and baby cows

The day before Easter I took the two monkeys to a local farm to meet the bunny. They were super excited to get one egg each with stickers inside. Just right for us. There was no hunting this year( as upsetting as that was, everyone still managed to get candy). We then headed out side to meet the new spring arrivals. The two of them weren't too sure what to make of the baby cow. A fun and totally satisfying hour for the youngsters.

in the kitchen

As always we are busy in the kitchen. Harkin is loving helping to bake these days, while Izzy is having fun making smoothies with her big brother and licking the spoons. Landon has been wanting to try out sushi making for a long time now. He got the extra push when we were completing one of our subscription boxes earlier this month. It was harder than he thought but he had fun and everyone had some. It was quite tasty.

afternoon art

The big boys have discovered a new website to help kids draw. They have spent several afternoons drawing for hours really, The drawings are done in sharpie marker and they have come out so neat. The instructor is this cool guy and he has comic book, movie and book characters. plus a ton of other things so it really appeals to the boys. While they are boys are busy, I spend some time with the two little ones just having fun making different kinds of art. They loved dipping and stamping the circles. It's always fun to see how it will come out.


Harkin is very into his numbers these days. He loves this hundreds board and will sit for long periods of time matching the numbers. He also loves to count and has made it all the way to one hundred by himself. He needs a little help when he gets to the tens but then keeps on going. It fascinates me how much he loves numbers. I got him his own special Count to Ten book- its "his work" when the boys are doing their lessons. It's a coloring book but he absolutely loves it. My little man is growing up and not so little any more.


My sweet Landon went and turned eleven already! He is getting so big and learning how to be a young man every day. We had a great day at the new Smuggs Fun Zone. Lots of neat things to do and of course a few video games to mesmerize them all. After several hours of play we came home to try out the new presents, have a yummy meal and make your own brownie sundaes.  A little different than normal but very sweet- just like my guy.
