All in a May : Vegas, lake, and ballet

Isaac has an annual work meeting in Vegas each May. I'm thankful I got to tag along again. And that my mom and a sweet sitter tag teamed our kids back at home for the 3 night getaway.

Upon our return, Annette had her second ballet recital. She was darling in her pink cotton candy costume. She and her friends remembered maybe half of their planned routine. Laughs and applause all around. 

After I taught my class on Saturday,we headed up to the lake with kids and Isaac's  parents. 

While all the May fun has been going on, the builders and framers have made lots of pretty progress on Grant street. I drive/walk by every chance I get. And am pinning up a storm as I get to choose windows and sinks and such. It's really a dream come true to get to actually use some of my favorite pinned house ideas. 

Pinch me. Just pinch me. This May has been quite dreamy. I know I've earned none of it. Praising God In these good times for our family. And I'll praise Him still when it's time to blog about the inevitable hard times. But while I'm here. Here in this moment. I will say Thank You, Father. I see your goodness. And I need to not be afraid of it.

Charlie's school performance and other recent memories

Charlie's school performance was a couple weeks ago... the day before we moved to the rent house. So pardon my delay in posting these pics :)

Below is Will, who Charlie tells me he plays with every day. Big hugs. 

Charlie sat in his little chair and sang and did motions the whole time. Loved seeing him in his little school environment. 

Here are a few other pics that Were taken around the time of the move that I want to remember. 

Mattie's Birthday

A princess party

A date night benefitting Ballet Arkansas

Lunch at All Aboard. This was the first day in the rent house and I was in a sour/emotional mood. Getting out of the house with 3 (by myself) just for lunch is not that easy, but on this day it was just what I needed. 

Can't even think about how big Set will be when we are back in the completed Grant house. 

Dinner at the Smith's house. 

At my parents house...

Thank goodness for iPhone cameras to help me store these memories. I haven't found my real camera's battery charger yet. It's hopefully in one of the many boxes lining our bedroom and laundry room. 

Gotta get on that.

A school performance and Mothers Day weekend

Annette had a little school program on Friday. 

Mothers Day was such a sweet day. After church Isaac and kids took me to Big Orange... My favorite lunch spot. 

A view of our house from this weekend...

It's a fun and busy, blessed  time. 

Wouldn't want it any other way.
