insta may and a little june

may was a wild, full month in all the right ways. 

the following scene is happening more and more. the three of them playing and working together calmly. 

fun food! we've been making delicious popsicles with our zoku popsicle maker. mmm. 

we spent grey's birthday in greenville. it was rainy and cold all weekend so we celebrated inside at quite a few of our favorite places. anita's, mellow mushroom, and yogurt mountain. 

sleeping boys. 

i'm really really really going to miss my peonies when we move. that is one plant i will be buying and planting in our new yard.

this is one of my most favorite places. our deck, with a book, and a boy in my lap.

studying and measuring veggies for vegetable week. 

trampoline tricks. 

camping with friends.

garrett staying with us for a couple of days and spent the night. all the boys had a blast. will almost got to sleep the night with them but was a little too excited and ended up having to go to his own bed. 

tuck finished up 3 year old mothers morning out. he had two awesome teachers that just so happen to be some of my best friends.

tuck and jude are best buds. jude was so excited to give tuck a bow and arrow for his birthday and they wanted their picture together. 

 scout goes everywhere with will.

strawberry pickin' number one. 

our lot for our new house! we are so thankful we got to pick out the very lot we wanted.

ice cream stop for t man's birthday.

dirt and worm cake for tuck's birthday. he got a bug vest, a new net, a brand new bug book, and got to have a creek adventure. 

 a sunny morning backyard bug hunt.

 tuck and luke ready for four year old camp.

will and all of his night night necessities. 

spent one week with these two guys. we couldn't believe how much the dynamics of our family changed while tuck was away. 

we ate popsicles, played with cousins, and grey helped me make lemonade. he was a pro with cutting and squeezing those lemons.

strawberry pickin' again sans tucker. we went to hall family farm this time which was lots of fun. the boys got fresh fruit icees, played tetherball, went through a maze, and rode big ol' trikes. it's the same farm we went to in the fall for a field trip. it was a winner! 

my old soul six year old. we attended lots of graduation parties and he wanted to dress up for all of them. and comb his hair to the side.

i love this picture. we love books.

i thought this was so funny. grey was in charge of drinks for dinner one night and he filled our water glasses up for us. not quite half full. it was precious.

this boy loves a morning snuggle.

we got to spend some time with catilyn at her pool this week. the boys had a blast and it made us all really excited to have a pool to go to all summer long. hopefully they will all be swimming on their own very soon!

    Love your picture posts! I have a question: Did you use any curriculum with your homeschooling or did you and the other mothers plan everything?

  2. Hi Sarah Ellen!!! We did use curriculum which helped us in our general planning. I was not thrilled with the curriculum we used this year and would definitely go a different route if we do this next year. Are you thinking of homeschooling?! Hope you are well!

  3. We are leaning very strongly in that direction. Beck did preschool this year and he has retained so much of what they did for phonics that I am considering getting that program, but I want to keep it all very hands-on because he is very hands-on (and I am not). It should be interesting.
