Our friends, Justin and Tricia, are moving to MN. They won't be too far away, but it is still always hard to have friends move. So of course it gave us a reason to have a party!

I cannot believe the girls are done with another year of school. They have already been on summer vacation for over week! Now I'm ready to join them!
The girls both had another great year and had wonderful teachers! We can't wait for Jaxon to join them at SFC next year!

Jayla had her wellness check a couple of weeks ago ... she's nearly off the charts in her height! (and has definitely passed up her older sister!)
Trying to be patient at Jayla's wellness check ... don't let that cute smile fool you though, he couldn't wait to bust out of that room!
Jax and I loved this sunset from his bedroom window a few nights ago ...
Baseball and softball are in full swing for us ... Jax is on Monday/Wednesday and the girls are on Tuesday/Thursday. We've had some cold practices and games to sit through!
Saturday morning baking!
The kids are big enough to go on the ferris wheel alone! Jordyn didn't want to go, but these two had fun!
Ready for church!
Justin was out of town a couple of weekends ago, so I took the kids swimming!

Jaxon's school had "Muffins with Mom" for Mother's Day. The kids sang to us and gave us cards :) Sure love that crazy kid!
(He had Dad spike his hair to look nice for me, but by the time I got there, it looked like a bad case of bed hair. Ha!)
I'm just a few weeks behind ... surprising right?!
Mother's Day weekend was busy for us ... Jax had a birthday party on Saturday, and then we spent the evening with Justin's family at Steve and Tracy's house to celebrate Blake's graduation. The kids had a blast swimming! (and by accident I took almost all of my pictures in "live" mode, and they can't be posted on the blog ... so enjoy some pictures of Jaxon but not the girls - ha!)
On Sunday we went to church, out for lunch, took a quick trip to the zoo, and then went out for supper for with my parents!
I bet not too many mom get cones for Mother's Day! Ha! Living in an area with a lot of new construction has been interesting and frustrating at times ... and I am tired of big trucks using our driveway to turn around in ... so I said I wanted cones! Jordyn had warned me that my Mother's Day gift was a funny one!
After supper, we played basketball for a few minutes. :)

We had an unbelievable year of GEMS ... new girls every single week, up to the last GEMS meeting! 136 girls! 28 counselors, 1 prayer counselor, 1 snack helper, 1 craft helper, a children's ministry leader ... and Megan and myself as coordinators! Oofta! We made it!
Two Sundays ago, we had GEMS Sunday!
I love GEMS Sunday!
Our second graders said our theme verse ...
Megan sang ... I talked ... and our girls all did their theme song! So fun to watch/listen!
I am so thankful that Jordyn was a part of GEMS this year, and Jayla will be next year!
And through the craziness (and often stress), I'm so thankful that I get to help this lead program with my best friend!

Last Saturday after preschool graduation and baseball, we went to the lake! The weather was beautiful!
All snuggled up in his favorite swing!
Justin braved the cold water and drove the jet skis!
Yay for our first boat ride of the spring/summer!!
I love each of their facial expressions in these pictures ...
Jax made his own boat ...
