Lambing Days

So I found a new way to get real depressed, forget to post photos of last year’s lambing days and decide to do both years in one post. AND then you realize how much your kids have grown and you will most likely cry yourself to sleep. Only kind of kidding guys, but let me tell you, you blink and your kids are no longer babies!! My kids love going to Eugsters and we make it a tradition to go to lambing days in the spring and the fall festival. And just a side note, lambs are born mainly in the spring hence the yearly lambing days in the April, isn’t that interesting!!! Now as far as why that is, don’t ask me there’s google for that.

Here’s some photos from the past TWO years from the Lambing days if you care to see:

2016:

DSC_0018 This photo is worth documenting even if I look ridiculous, because don’t be fooled, though I’ll want to hold anyone’s baby, I not the biggest fan of holding large-ish squirmy animals, BUT I’M DOING IT!!!
DSC_0020 Hands down the funniest photo I have ever seen!!!!! My family in the background is doing there own thing and I’m the only one posing!!!! It’s probably because I’m so proud of myself for STILL holding this animal. DSC_0079 DSC_0085 This girl of ours just loves animals.

April & May Ramblings

Life happened, and so I’m combining the highlights for April & May together. It’s seems like life is pretty busy, but of course when I am sitting here I’m blanking on all we did. But I think in a way, it’s just the little moments of each day and just keeping on top of things, that make life seem so hectic and full in a good way.

Reading:
All the Lies we Tell – was a quick read, but wouldn’t necessarily recommend it.
A Little Life – this is a long, long book, that is very very sad, but also beautiful, the author was so good at developing each character and it’s worth the investment.
The Goldfinch – finally read this and thought the premise was really good but it just felt drawn out and disappointed in the ending. Felt it had a lot of potential.

Thoughts:
I read this recently and I just love it, “…concerned, but also don’t want to borrow trouble”. I needed to read this because I tend to worry about things a little too often.

For awhile I was broken putting Jonas to be at nights because I’m so so sad I can’t do this forever. It’s mainly because I’m mourning ‘I’m done with kids phase’. But regardless this time has been pretty sad for me.

Events:
Nola had her spring dance recital, which was adorable and we were so proud.

Swimming lessons also ended and Nola learned so much. Can’t express how happy we are with Little Strokes.

Have I mentioned we still have school for ONE MORE WEEK!! It seems like everyone is done or has been done and I can’t even. I’m so over it! Will I say in one month I’m ready for school to start, probably :) but I do live in this vicious/wonderful cycle of life here.
