It’s a little life lately.
Friends, thank you so much for the prayers yesterday. I really cannot say enough about what this community means to me. Your prayers and words of encouragement were felt by all of us. Ashby and I are staying home today to snuggle and watch movies.
Here’s a little look at what we’ve been up to lately…
Frenchie waits all day long for her two girls to come home from school…she likes Smith and Madeley, but her heart belongs to Ashby and Kensington. Some days, kindergarten is just exhausting, so when Ashby puts herself down for a nap, Frenchie patiently waits nearby.
This was such a full circle moment for us! A few Fridays ago, Kensington was the surprise mystery reader in Ashby’s kindergarten class. Ashby was SO EXCITED!!! Ashby’s teacher was Kensington’s kindergarten teacher…and that was the year, we left to get Ashby (so her teacher really was such a big part of the whole experience!). Isn’t that cool?! Kensington brought her own book from home to read to the class…and it was about how it’s okay to be different. I love these two so much!
The two of us spend a great deal of time in the car waiting on the other three. #lifeofthefourthchild
Friday night dinner date…us plus four other people 😉 . I love that Smith is still at that sweet age where he thinks it’s so fun to be with his mama and fights to sit next to me at restaurants (which you really have to fight because Madeley will throw down if she’s not sitting by me. Hahahaha!).
A hawk has made a nest in our yard…we like to sit out there and watch it.
Volleyball, volleyball, volleyball is on the brain these days! How big does Kensington look?!
On Friday, these two girls asked to make muffins…and didn’t want me in the kitchen to help at all. #mixandmatchdaughters
Sometimes, Kensington gets to help me teach the three year olds at church. She is amazing! Andrea and I typically sit back and let her take charge. Ha!
Four kids in their Sunday best!
We get so excited when Daddy makes dinner! He was making us homemade pizza!
Madeley always makes herself so cozy!
When your brother has two baseball games and sister has two volleyball games, you bring a big bag of stuff and make your own happiness 🙂 .
Do you see the cheering section at the end of the volleyball court?
One of our favorite things to do is sit by the window and enjoy a cheeseboard. Seriously, it’s like one of our favorite ways to connect. Over cheese. #noshame
Just a boy and his Yankees.
Smith is a professional Captain Underpants artist. I hope that gets him a college scholarship or something 😉 .
When your baby still acts like a baby sometimes. Andrew soaked this up!
One more thing…
…I made a Quick Trader Joe’s Gnocchi with Meat Sauce that you might want to make. It’s the easiest little weeknight meal!
So…that’s life lately. See you guys tomorrow. xo
