Sun's Out, Fun's Out

May 6th marked the first day it was warm enough to get the slide out. Pretty good, by PNW standards. We're on our third summer with this slide, and it's held up perfectly. So well in fact, we decided to get it a big sister (post forthcoming). If I can't have a swimming pool, I will have a water park ;)

The best part of being part of the preschool contigency is smaller crowds and lower wait times for the slide while the big kids are at school.

Mother's Day 2016

For Mother's Day, Ward and Audrey's school hosted the cutest tea parties for the moms during their class time. I attended two parties-once in Ward's class with just Ward (Audrey was at a playdate) and again in Audrey's class. Unfortunately Ward had to come with me to Audrey's party and he was a rowdy, distracting little dude. Thankfully, my entourage of little people days are nearly over...

I had a great time at both of the parties, but they must have been really exciting because I was really, really tired at the end of the day.

Give the boy a tiny spoon and he's happy!

Raingutter Regatta

Not long after Amos' Pinewood Derby win, came the Raingutter Regatta. Poor kid didn't stand a chance with the expectations set sky high. He was pretty upset when it didn't go his way, and a good learning experience followed.

There was still a Horne winner though:

The next Pack meeting found Amos' receiving his Wolf, which means he completed the whole first year. He passed with flying colors and loved every second of it. He's so ready to be a Bear on his next birthday. October can't come soon enough.
