End of the Year Whirlwind.

Earlier this year I had bemoaned the business of our schedule. Past Lindsey is laughing at herself, because had I known then what I know now, I would have thought that a walk in the park.

I now know why Jen Hatmaker writes blog posts about the end of the school year and it goes viral. Have mercy, the end of the school year is like trying to drink from a fire hydrant. What was once a gentle saunter on the path of the school year has turned into a full on gallop to the end, and I feel like it's all we can do to hold on and stay afloat amidst the various programs, end of year activities and papers....

Thus the absence of my blogging.

In addition to the end of school activities that have had us in a flurry, we've also completed spring soccer (which hasn't been my favorite thing this year thanks to the schedule being constantly updated and pushed into summer due to winter weather and a stormy spring).
We had Connor's end of the year program for his MDO. I can't believe he only has one more year left of MDO before he goes to school too (He can believe it though, and is quite sad that some of his friends will be starting Kindergarten without him).
On a hot chicken nugget date with Connor the ninja (he kindly shared his shark hat with me so i could have a balloon too). I asked him how I could be a better mommy and he replied "just be my mommy and cook me ice cream. For dinner." #mboys2015
I've gotten to go on a date with a ninja and lived to tell about it ;)
The bigs with our cousin, Hannah, and one of our favorite babysitters, Rachel (who they refer to as "our other favorite cousin"). These two girls have very special places in these little boy hearts (and in mine). We love you Hannah and Rachel! #mboys2015
We had the opportunity to attend my cousin and one of our favorite babysitters high school graduation. The boys did relatively well through the ceremony. I did well till the slide show, and I realized that all of those mommas with graduating babies probably felt like their baby had just completed Kindergarten. The days are long but the years are SO SO short.

I finally braved the hair salon again (we had a traumatic for mommy experience in March that left me unsure if I'd ever let anyone else touch his hair)... he looks so grown up! (And finally has a decent hair cut!) #mboys2015
Tyler got his hair cut after I finally mustered up the courage to try it again (he had a horrid hair cut a few months ago that left me scarred. Thankfully this stylist did exactly what I wanted, though she had to go a bit shorter due to having to fix some of the issues caused by the last chop job).
Crawfish, chips and soda pop. The boy. Is. Happy. #mboys2015Connor boy flying a kite today. He was in his element. #mboys2015
Our neighbors invited us to a crawfish boil they attend every year. My boys had the absolutely time of their lives there, eating crawfish, sipping soda, flying kites and digging in sand. SO SO fun.

So far this morning the bad guys have been defeated by the arsenal of Nerf guns, and now we've moved onto Samurai sword fighting. I cannot tell you how much I enjoy being a boy mom. #boymom #mboys2015
We're finally completed BSF year three, so the only thing left is for school to let out and the weather to warm up so these ninja boys can jump in the pool and enjoy their summer break!
