The other day after some badgering from a certain 7 year old that demanded we pick just one, Nate declared “Back in Time”, by Huey Lewis, to be his all time favorite song. We pulled it up on YouTube for the girls to listen to and they lasted through the first chorus before they became disinterested. Apparently we need to work on our music appreciation around here. But it does describe my blog as of late. 2016 blog posts have been few and far between and my intentions is to remedy that for the second half of the year. In actuality I have had a lot to say, but in the midst of the move, computer trouble, and misdiagnosing the computer trouble, I am only now getting back on track. So I will be heading back in time to properly document such things as Bailey’s birthday, and the last day of school, and some adventures in between. In the mean time, I will catch us up a bit with what has been happening around here the past months.
I know I’ve mentioned it , but We MOVED…and we are still recovering
Yes, that is all our junk completely filling a large storage unit up to the BRIM. And yes, that is my child wrapped up in a plastic table cloth. Yes, it was that exhausting. But we are fairly settled in and mostly unpacked and loving spending time on our new deck.
Bailey had a great time finishing up spring soccer. We got to know her team mates and their families even better and enjoyed watching all the girls improve.
We spent Memorial Day in Montana to catch up with family.
Mia has a new idol to look up to in Trav, and we still say things like “Travis brushes his teethe every night. Show me how you brush your teethe like Trav.” on nights when she is particularly overtired.
Bailey was introduced to the game of basketball when she attended the Lady Hardrockers camp at SDSM&T. The ladies were so great with the kids and Bailey had a great time. I had a great time listening to the players talk about everything from pets to classes like chemical engineering with the girls.
Nate and I spent our anniversary in Las Vegas again, which Nate has declared an official tradition. My parents helped us celebrate with a gift certificate to some high speed Go-Kart racing. For the record, I won both races. Nate would tell you his car wasn’t working properly. Believe what you will. We had fun and felt rejuvenated upon our return.
The bees are BACK! My dad has all the hives in his yard since I haven’t checked with my new neighbors to see if anyone is deathly allergic. But they are doing really well, at least by our standards. We don’t think we have ever had this many bees and on that first box, we have already added a honey super. We might get honey yet! And if we’re lucky a few more blog posts.
