Life is flying by so fast that I can fit the last 4 months into one blog post...sloooow dooowwwn!!!
The kids school did a color run. It was a really short lap, but the kids could run around as many times as they wanted--and run they did!
I ran the first lap with Jax, he spent the whole time running AROUND the color stations instead of through them, crying whenever anyone got near him. But, after one turn with me, he ran off with Katie and come back covered in color.
LOVE the kid's school and their group of friends!

We signed up to help out so the kids also got a chance to throw color on everyone else. I think this might have been more fun then running through it.
We had lots of play dates while we waited for the weather to get better.
Jaxon was so excited to have his best preschool friend over to "jump on the trampoline and swing in the hammock"; a bee joined them on the trampoline and his friend was scared of the hammock, but they managed to have fun anyway.

I try to be involved in the kid's school, it is so much harder with 5 kids. I was too stressed to volunteer in the classrooms this year, but I was room mom for both Marcus and Addy. I also co chair the plant sale 2x year. The Spring Plant sale is a favorite of my kids. I spend the entire week in the school, which means they get to spend an entire week thinking up reasons to get out of class so they can come visit me. They eat lunch with me everyday and any break or recess they show up to hang out. They are the envy of all their friends, who go home begging their parents to volunteer so that they to can eat lunch in the hallway.

Teacher appreciation week is always the week of the plant sale. We heart attacked the teacher's doors to show them our love.
Spring finally arrived and we have spent everyday outside since them.

I went on a field trip with Marcus and Addy, and even got to ride on the bus with them. We visited some historical sites around Stamford, learned the history of the city and even met the mayor. That evening our family was getting frozen yogurt and Mark saw us on TV!
For our skip day, after some donuts, Addy and I ended up at the mall and in a chair at Claire's. Addy had no idea that I had planned to get her ears pierced, but she was so excited, and scared (she almost didn't do it...like, after I had already paid she tried to back out and I might have forced her.)
|I don't think she was mad at me|
Then all the sudden it was the end of the year and field day! Thank heavens Marcus and Addy are in the same grade so I didn't have to spend 3 days at the school with Jax and Zane.

Then there was Zane, he kept growing and growing. I took him to his 6 month appointment and they told me to lower his crib side and I laughed. At his 9 month appointment, they assumed I had, and I laughed. This child took forever to move, and we didn't care (ok, I admit, it crossed my mind that it was possible he wouldn't be moving when he was 19 but...). It was so nice to lay and later sit him in one spot and he not move.
Finally, I walked into his room one to day and found this...I didn't laugh...
time to lower the crib (which took us 3 weeks, but we did make him sleep in a pack n play until we got around to it).
Zane is an angel, this child has cried exactly 2 times in his life. I think we might love him more then all of our other kids put together.
This Spring Addy and Marcus did swim for a month and then tennis for a month and Katie played soccer.
We had a fantastic school year, but I am always so excited for it to end. I really look forward to the end of a schedule. Bring on summer!
