Thursday is our official start to summer vacation! Jacob was done with school on May 31st, HCA was done June 7 and Ben’s last day is today! It was kind of annoying having them all finish at different times.
Seeing that I’m
a little really behind on my weekly updates I’ll do a recap of our spring. The last 8 weeks have flown by but have been so much fun. I am just loving the ages that the kids are at right now.
- We had a nice relaxing spring break with a visit from cousins then we went to Rockville for Easter. We took the boys to an Egg Hunt and learned that when someone says you are only allowed to get 10 eggs that a boy with Autism will interpret that as he HAS to get 10 eggs and will have a complete meltdown when he only finds 7. Thankfully the egg hunt at home went much smoother.
- Hannah played Middle School Soccer which she loved. She played really well and liked getting to know the girls on the team. After spending hours on the team bus she also learned how to french braid and then came home and taught me!
- May was packed full of concerts and field trips. I got to go to Lansing with Joe to see the capital. Hannah, Rachel and Joe all had choir concerts and Rachel had a band concert.
- My mom and I started a HUGE garden. I should have enough tomatoes to make enough pasta sauce to last the whole year. I planted some pumpkins and celery just for fun.
- To end the school year we had a pool party for the kids and some friends. It was a lot of fun. The weather was perfect and the kids all got along really well.
I’m hoping now that school is over I’ll be able to keep up with my weekly wrap ups a little better. We’ve got some fun plans for the summer.
