I've had these pictures uploaded for almost a week now, but between packing for the beach, Maya's recital, a Memorial Day cookout at my father-in-law's house, babysitting, preschool wrap-up, and general day-to-day management of home and children, I have been neglecting to write anything. Well, I finally decided to just post the pictures (that's what people want to see anyway, right? I'd like to think that I'm an amazing and inspiring writer, but I think 90% of my readers come here to see pictures of my kiddos ;)). So here ya go! Pictures of what we've been doing:
Garden! We have had 3 nights of freeze and/or frost warnings, and I'm pretty sure I've lost at least some of my plants (despite covering them), but here's what it looked like when we planted :) Maya is responsible for the row of sweet peppers and Charlotte is tending to pumpkins. They both help me with the rest, but those are the plants they chose to take ownership of :)

Michael was a part of a Men's CLC (Christian Leadership Concepts) group for the past 2 years, and we went to a cookout a couple weeks ago with the families. It's been a great experience for him and I think he's made some really good, strong friendships.
Soccer! Maya is definitely turning into our little soccer player. She really loves the practices and games, and has been consistently able to get control of the ball! I'm excited that she is enjoying it :) In her last game she even scored 3 (!!!) goals, and was very proud of her hat trick.
|Charlotte's outfit selection lately has been extra amazing|
|it's pretty incredible how much love I have for this little one :D|
