van played his little heart out this season, and ended up doing so well and learning so much. it was great for him to be a part of a team and develop his soccer skills.
here’s a little smilebox to showcase some pics of the season…

a non-geeky trip to the jr. high for lunch

a non-geeky trip to the jr. high for lunch

we’re always at the elementary school visiting van in his classroom for class parties, or meeting him for lunch with a treat, but we’ve only been allowed at jasmine’s school after hours- usually for a choir concert (we went to watch a presentation she did in history once, but only because she got extra credit if someone came to watch). she said that it’s totally un-cool for parents to come to the jr. high.

but she happened to mention once, that if we brought mcdonald’s food then it wouldn’t be so bad. so we surprised her the other day with a big mac & fries, and frosty’s for 10 of her friends. she said it wasn’t that embarrassing. hope we didn’t cramp your style too much jas!

this weather has been so nice lately, we’ve been trying to be outside as much as we can. here’s mia sporting my sunglasses and eating snacks, and i had to get a picture of how cute her little legs look underneath her princess table.

my middle child

i cashed in one of my “mother’s day coupons” from van the other day. he played with mia while i got some cleaning done and even watched her for longer than what his coupon was good for! i love that kid.

jasmine certainly keeps us on our toes around here. she always has something fun and interesting to talk about, and always keeps us smiling.

here are a few things that she’s been up to…her school choir performed their “pop concert” with full on choreography to each song! it was great! she tried out last month for a solo spot and made it! we were so proud of her. she sang “speak now” by taylor swift and did fabulous!

once a  month the young men and young women get together for a joint mutual activity (jasmine lives for these). they had fun playing games, roasting marshmallows, and playing some game with flour loaded socks.

in march she had an unexpected surgery to remove some infection from a cyst in her lower back. all is well and she’s recovering just fine. of course she loved being able to stay home from school for a week, AND being able to ride in a wheelchair from the recovery room to the car after her surgery:)
