Today was the last day of school for Noah and Lily. Noah will be going into 8th grade, his last year of middle school, and Lily will be going into 5th grade, her last year of elementary school. So next year I will be a sentimental wreck. But this year I enjoyed taking the kids to school, helping at Noah’s field day, and going bowling with the kids, their friends, and my friends. Friends are so important at any age….
Lily’s new hobby is making rolly polly homes. They never live. This is a vivid memory from my childhood as well.
Lola came to Noah’s baseball game tonight. She was so impressed at all of the touchdowns Noah made and his amazing dribbling ability. She thought he just ate food and played video games but turns out he’s a talented athlete. Also she enjoyed all of the other canines at the ballfield. And the popcorn.

Happy Memorial Day! T4 hiked and then biked. We were going to swim too but a storm came through.
I couldn’t pick just one picture from today. It was a beautiful day. We spent it hiking, picnicing, and horseback riding. I didn’t even get kicked by my horse, Montana!
I spent most of the day driving yesterday…ice skating, graduation parties, hiking.
Hooray for Mexican food!

He go a cool outfit from Grandma and Grandpa Hottman, MONEY from Aunt JJ and Grandma Tackett, Sequence from Aunt Lori, a desk from Mom and Dad, and lots of clothes including a nice polo from Lily (for his STEM conference). Oh and Lola got him a gift card to his favorite restaurant Buffalo Wild Wings. I…
Noah’s last game as a 12 year old! They won, and he had 2 great hits and threw a mean curve ball from the mound.
