Memorial Day beach trip

We went to Doheney beach in Dana point on Memorial Day. It was a lot of fun and it was cool watching the boys surf. In usual form, I forgot to take many pictures but here are a few.

Beautiful Mia

So cute

Fin had a blast 

So did Emery!

Daddy and Fin :)

My surfer boy-- or almost man :)

Owen had a ton of fun surfing too. The waves were really big so they were exhausted!

Cactus Coolers-- anyone remember those-- holy cow I use to love them. They are the only non-diet soda I have ever liked. I dont drink them now but Kev loves them and bought some recently and the kids loved them too-- uggg!! Hate them drinking the soda but have you ever tried a Cactus Cooler?? They are amazing!!!!!

Mia literally rolled around in the sand all day-- it was so funny but she loved it!!

Disney fun!

I seriously cant believe it has almost been a month since I posted. Honestly, we are so busy that I just never think about it. Its really hard to remember to post on the blog with all the craziness in our lives. We are doing well. We have a lot going on with the end of the school year and my private practice getting crazy busy and a few other important decisions we are working on-- things are just CRAZY!! We are also leading Financial Peace University- Dave Ramsey- at our church on Wednesday nights and we just LOVE LOVE LOVE that ministry.

The girls are doing well. They are doing very well this school  year and Mia is soooooooo ready for first grade and Finley is going into Kinder next year and she too is ready. Mia has excelled academically-- we always knew she was going to do well with academics-- and she genuinely loves learning. She remembers things that are totally random-- she remembers EVERYTHING!! Finley is in Transitional Kinder-- a program the state of CA started that is a 2 year kinder program for kids who are fall birthdays. She will be a regular kinder kid next year and she is going into kinder with way more skills then they expect so she should do AWESOME next year! Emery is still her little spitfire crazy busy type A little peanut. She cracks us up and is in everything. She is so much fun now with her starting to put 2 word sentences together and really understanding what she is wanting and saying. She is just a fun little one who has an amazingly strong will that is both challenging but also fun. She reminds me of myself!

Boys are doing well and thankfully are only playing roller hockey right now. Ethan's track ended a week ago so we are in the extra time at home phase right now and I love it!! So much better than running from practice to practice. Both boys are planning on working this summer-- Owen at Amy's Farm and Ethan working with an electrician doing job clean up and any grunt level work. I am looking forward to them being busy learning how to work hard-- develop that work ethic so many kids are lacking.

We decided to head to Disney last Friday night for a night of fun! We had a great time!! The boys came along as well as Cassie and it turned out to be a lot if fun. Here are some highlights.
