Life has continued to be a little off balance in our home. We are wrapping up the school year like every other family in America and with that comes a whole lotta anxiety and excitement.  Every year I look forward to wiping away the schedules, turning down the routine and just taking the day in.  That is what I dreamt but unfortunately not realistic this summer.

With the end of the year wrap-up comes the end of the year evaluations and unfortunately we all have things we can work on to make our next school year just a little smoother, so that is what we will do.  I have not completely filled the boys in on the expectations of the summer but I hope they will work with me so we can fit in a whole lotta fun!  My hope to be at the beach every Friday is a realistic expectation and I fully hope to make it happen!

It is all good and we will all come out on the other side a happier, healthier and smarter family.  We got this.

Tomorrow I am looking forward to spending time with family and old family friends as we celebrate my brother and his soon to be beautiful bride at their engagement party.  I am so looking forward to it!

Happy Friday everyone.  OXOXO Katie
