I'm so glad school is almost over and I can spend some time with all of my kids instead of having to share them with school, soccer, piano and other various constant activities. I know we'll all be bored with each other and the house by the second week of summer though!
I had a super small birthday get together for Rose last Thursday and then Saturday she turned nine. I can't believe it!
Check out Max's excellent nose picking skills, she gets that from me... ;)
This weekend I attempted to relax with Jeremiah and Elijah, we went on two bike rides and a nature walk. We took Elijah on an easier trail at McConnells's Mills...thinking that he would enjoy stretching his legs and climbing on the smaller rocks. He had other plans in mind, only wanting to pick up small rocks and throw them in the creek...which meant he would try to do so at any cost, even if it meant running up to the edge of the cliff over and over again.
Seeing the danger we had to trek back to our car carrying a very pissed off 35 pound 20 month old. Jeremiah didn't break a sweat on our hilly five mile bike ride the day before, but he was pretty darn red in the face after wrestling with Elijah on the walk back to our car.
Here's some photos from the weekend:
