Our Graduate!

Our school did something new this year--a Kindergarten graduation.  It was pretty adorable. Delaney was excited to be on stage, to sing songs with her friends, and turn tassel from one side to another. We all celebrated with cupcakes afterwards to celebrate learning how to read, do math activities, share with each other,  and GoNoodle dance.

We're so proud of this girl!

May Summary

We had a lovely month of May this year and before it gets too far behind us, here were some of the main events:

 Poor Brinnly had a tough several weeks as we struggled to figure out what was causing her to feel so sick. But she came out on top!  After several trips to various office's at Children's Hospital we are fairly confident in the diagnosis of "Abdominal Migraines" and it seems like the medicine is working on her. The twins were caring and gentle helpers while she was sick.

Jonathan turned 40!  He and I managed to squeeze in a quick trip to Chicago for dinner at our favorite restaurant, The Publican. It did not disappoint!  The kids were eager to shower him with gifts the next day.
 Grandma Dena came to visit!  Or as Everly calls her "Daddy's grandma!". The twins kept her busy at home playing puzzles at hide-and-seek. The timing also worked out perfectly for her to watch the older girls participate in their Track and Field Day as well as Mali and Brinnly also compete in the annual school Knowledge Bowl that evening. The girls all did great in their competitions (Brinnly and Carrigan broke racing records and our school's team came within one point of winning the Knowledge Bowl). It was such a fun visit!

We made our annual Memorial Day trek to the Ryans' house with unseasonably hot weather. This was the only picture I managed of the weekend since unfortunately the visit included a trip to the ER for Kellie after a fall on wet grass and then a sudden stomach virus for Carrigan. BUT, we managed to have fun with our dear friends even with all of that craziness!

These two have been loving the spring weather! Park visits, trampoline fun, balance bikes, and tree climbing made it a month full of sweet memories.
