Today, Smith graduates from preschool (insert me sobbing here). His school has a graduation ceremony for all of the Pre-K kids and then a little party afterwards. I read this quote this week and it really spoke volumes to me…
I’ve been pretty much doing the exact same thing every single day for almost seven years, and yet my life is so much different than it was seven years ago. All of a sudden, these little people that I’ve been taking care of all day, every day are big and in school. My kiddos are growing up and it excites me and terrifies me at the same time.
Andrew and Smith went hunting for a few days, so it was just girl time at the Shull house. On this particular night, it was way past Kensington’s bedtime, but we were staying up late, eating brownies in my bed and watching the Disney Channel. I blame this behavior on all of the Gilmore Girls episodes I’ve been watching lately. #whatwouldloreleido
This is Ashby’s “cheese” face :).
Walking to pick up Kensington from school with my middle and little. The weather was just gorgeous on this particular day, so we stayed and played at the park for an hour after school.
There is always a pile of blocks on the floor at our house. Someone is always building something :).
On Tuesday morning, we arrived at the children’s hospital at 7:00 for Ashby’s MRI. She was such a trooper! Other than asking for a drink about 80 times (bless her heart!), she didn’t fuss one bit.
Watching Mickey Mouse while we waited to go back.
We also killed time by making faces in selfies…
At 9:00, I carried her back to the MRI room and placed her on the table. They let me hold her hand while they put her to sleep. Once she was asleep, I gave her a big kiss on the forehead and went out to wait.
I brought along my favorite things to keep me company during the 1.5 hour wait…Starbucks, Gilmore Girls, a magazine and a book.
They brought her back to us already awake, we got her dressed and were home by 11:30. We go back in two weeks to discuss the results with her doctor.
Later that afternoon, I took these girlies to their costume fittings for their dance recital. They are IN LOVE with their new ballet costumes. That being said, I’m going to be picking glitter off of us for the next month (so.much.glitter.everywhere).
That’s life lately.
For dinner tonight…
