Life Lately 10.8.18

Hi friends!! It's been a while since I've posted and that's because last week we were on our family vacation. We did end up going to our original spot and it was beautiful! There were no issues with the water while we were there so we consider ourselves very lucky! Anyway, I will be posting about that hopefully this week or next, but today I wanted to dump some life lately on this space.

 These cuties had hat day at school - Ella was so excited to wear her tball hat and Brayden was excited too but in this picture he is showing he's too cool LOL

I was the mystery reader in Ella's class a couple weeks ago - I was so excited for this! She had asked me when I was going to be the mystery reader (it's someone different every Monday) and I kept telling her I hadn't heard about it. She lit up when I walked in!

I've been taking Avery to this fun science class at the library on Thursdays - her little friends meet us and it's always a lot of fun!


 Miss A was the VIP at preschool and I got to come in one day and watch her teacher go over her all about me packet. I love seeing these moments!


 This cutie is loving her tap class!!

We had a night hike night at the bigs school - we got to make star maps, light up glasses and made a craft. Then we headed outside to look for all different constellations - it was a lot of fun  (and a lot of work for the parents, haha)

The bigs also had a Fun Run at school the other week, Brayden's grade was first thing and Ella's was in the afternoon so me and Miss A made sure to be at both! She even joined them in running!




I had a girls date night one night while Rick & Brayden were at baseball practice. They painted pottery and I can't wait to see their final pieces this week!

The day before vacation we went to the Bears game with all Ricks siblings/spouses. It was a fun day out and the Bears killed it!!

And the next day we were off to sunny Florida!!

Today is a holiday for the kids so we are going to do something fun!

Linking up with Lindsays Sweet World


  1. Going to a Bears game seems like SO MUCH FUN! Especially when it's a win!

  2. I love the "too cool" picture. Ok, I need to get the Mystery Reader set up in my classroom, my students would love it. Question, do you bring your own book or does the teacher have one ready for you? Thanks!

  3. I just love all the school photos! Can’t wait to hear more about Florida. We are going to the Bears, Vikings game in November. You all look so cute!

  4. Wow, you've been having lots of fun things at all of the schools!

  5. I love the pictures! It looks like you've been keeping very busy. I'm so glad you had a nice vacation! I can't wait to hear all about it!

  6. I can't wait to see some recaps from your trip! So exciting!

  7. So many sweet day to day memories tucked into your life lately! How fun! I am so glad you still got to go to Anna Maria Island, it's so beautiful :)

  8. So glad everything worked well with your vacation! I can't wait to hear about it. Look at all of the fun you all have been having. Going to a sports game is even better when they win! Good for the Bears :) Sierra Beautifully Candid
