So. Here we go. A semi-random, rushed (sorry! I have 7 girls coming to my house later today for a birthday sleepover & a milllllion things to do before that!), incomplete rundown of What We Did, Spring 2016 Edition, Possibly Accidentally Including Some Things From Winter?, the working-mom version (which means, essentially, the photos are too few & unedited).
We went to a Timberwolves game!
We (meaning they) earned their blue belts in Tae Kwon Do!
We made Easter cookies, and...
We tried to look springy on Easter on the prairie!
Julia joined the 6th-grade girls' track team!
We put our 21-year-old kitty to sleep :( .....
Julia turned 12. TWELVE.
Genevieve set a school historical record & got special recognition at a medal ceremony for running a total of 198 miles during recess throughout the course of the school year in the 4th-grade running club (the club's highest challenge was to get to 100 miles)!
....And, on Wednesday, the last day of school (& for me, work) came:
If you need me, I'll just be over here huddled in a corner preemptively crying over the fact that I only have one year left with a child in elementary school.
Happy Summer, you all! It's the very best time of the year, and I plan to soak up every drop. I'm starting with hosting this crazy girl sleepover. Ha! ;) When that's over, I plan to resume hot lush trail runs and sunny afternoons at the pool. I wish you the very best summer ever.
