May 1 – Planting the Terrarium (finally!)

Nolan got a terrarium for Christmas and the weather was finally warm and sunny enough to plant it. He loved it and keeps it in his bedroom window.

Spencer wanted me to take a picture of him “checking for toe fuzz”.

Nolan was pushing the laundry basket so Corbin had to walk with it:

 

I was cooking dinner and turned around to see Corbin doing this:

May 2 – Sprinkler Fun

The boys had been asking for the sprinkler, but it was almost time to go in. I gave in and let them play, but they kept their clothes on. Spencer was completely naked by the time Nevin got home, but they had a blast running through it.

I was up at 2AM feeding Corbin and I couldn’t fall back to sleep, so I decided to read my book. While reading, I felt a tickle on my backside so I reached back there and found a tick. After that I was creeped out and had a hard time falling asleep because I kept thinking things were crawling on me.

May 3 – Spencer’s First Dental Appointment

Spencer did such an amazing job at the dentist. We got there early and they took us back right away. While I was filling out paperwork, the hygienist got right to work. She explained everything she was doing and was good with him. He listened very well and didn’t flinch at all. He chose mint toothpaste because “mint is my favorite” and he chose a green toothbrush. Dr. Gary came to look over his teeth and asked Spencer how many teeth he thought he had. Spencer said, “this many” and opened his mouth to show him how many. The doctor was speechless to say the least! The hygienist said he had minimal plaque and the doctor said his teeth look great and to keep doing what we are doing. Since he did so well, I gave him choices for a special treat and he chose a bagel with cream cheese from Dunkin Donuts. I hope he continues to do this well at the dentist!

We then met MOMS Club at Longwood Gardens. It was very hot and we were there for over 3 hours, but the kids were troopers. These pictures are from our walk to the exit. Nolan was in the stroller, I was carrying Corbin, and Spencer had to walk. Ashley got out of the stroller to walk with him and Nolan decided to join too.

 

“Hey Mommy, I’m you!”

May 4 – End of Year Fiesta at OCP

Nolan’s end of the year celebration was a fiesta at the park. When we arrived, we checked in and Nolan got his goody bag. I wasn’t sure if Spencer would get one, but he got one too and they stamped Corbin’s hand so he could get Kona Ice as well. In the goody bag was a bag to collect candy at the candy scramble and a bottle to do sand art. We ate our packed lunch at the park and then the boys played on the equipment. After that, they did some of the games and wanted to get their faces painted, but the line was very, very long. I convinced them to wait until the end, and even then, we waited 25 minutes in line. There was only 1 painter and some kids were getting their whole faces painted which took forever. We did sand art

 

 

May 5 & 6 – Fun at Home

I cleaned the house on Cinco de Mayo and then Kristen and Dani came over after nap. We were going to order Mexican take out for dinner, but they didn’t start delivery until 5 and we didn’t want to wait that long, so we got pizza from Matteo’s instead. We had a great time and I’m so glad that we were able to spend the day together.

 

 

Mimi and Pop came to visit for the day on Sunday. Spencer spent the day with Pop mowing the lawn. He actually fell asleep on Pop’s lap while he was mowing. Nolan hung out inside and outside and enjoyed building his new Legos by himself and playing Candy Land with Mimi and me.

May 7 – MOMS Club at Plumpton Park Zoo

We went to the zoo after school. We spent about 3 hours there and half of the time was spent playing in the playground/picnic area.

Since I was alone for the week while Daddy worked in Poland, Uncle Brad, Aunt Megan, and Mia decided to visit. They arrived around noon and

May 10 – Mother’s Day Tea at OCP

Kristen watched Spencer and Corbin for me while I went with Nolan to Mother’s Day Tea because Nevin was in Poland. Spencer and Corbin did so well, had fun, and Spencer even asked to go to her house again the next day! The tea was so cute and I am so thankful I was able to go. We waited outside of the room and each child came the get his or her mom, give her a tissue paper bouquet of flowers, stop for a picture, and walk her to her table. Then, the teachers brought around fruit cups while the kids got us food. After all the moms had food, the kids were then able to get food for themselves. After eating, the kids sang some songs and Mrs. Todd read a story. It was such a cute event and I’m looking forward to doing it with my other boys!

May 11 – Daddy is Home from Poland

Nolan and Spencer went to Faith Based Friday and then we stayed home for a regular nap schedule. After almost a week of being out and about all day and barely any naps, we needed a break. Daddy got home around 6:30PM and had lots of gifts for the boys and me! We missed him so much and we are so thankful he’s back home.

May 12 – Pfen’s Wedding

Nolan went to Wal-Mart with me to get some groceries and he decided to buy some toys with his money. We weren’t sure if Spencer wanted both, so we took a picture to show him his choices.

Caitlin did the girls’ hair for the wedding, so I went to Coatesville at 12:15PM to pick her up and bring her back to our house to get ready. After we were ready (and after pictures, of course) we headed to White Chimney Estate in Gap, PA which was about 35 minutes away. The venue was beautiful and they did cocktail hour before the ceremony which is my new favorite wedding trend. We got to watch the ceremony with drinks and then went in to the barn for the reception. I had a great time drinking Lancaster Brewing Company Strawberry Wheat and tearing up the dance floor. We left around 10PM and were happy to hear that Nolan, Spencer, and Corbin did very well for Mimi and Pop while we were gone. Congratulations to Aly & Pfen!

We celebrated Mother’s Day, Pop’s birthday, and Mimi’s birthday today since they were at our house for the wedding the night before. Mimi didn’t want any pictures, but she got a box of chocolates for Mother’s Day and a memory picture frame of Smudge for her birthday. Pop got a lawn mower t-shirt that matches Spencer’s.

May 15 – Elephant and Piggie at the Dutch Apple Dinner Theater

Nolan’s spring field trip was held in Lancaster at the Dutch Apple Dinner Theater. Since Nevin took off the previous day so I could go to Grandmom’s funeral, he worked from home today and I took Nolan. As soon as we got there, they seated us and we got to sit with Parker and his mom, Kristin. The buffet was so kid-friendly! They had chicken fingers, mini corn dogs, broccoli, salad, carrot and celery sticks, pizza, rigatoni with sauce, and tater tots. Then they had jello, cookies, and cupcakes for dessert. Lemonade was at our table, but we could order other drinks if we wanted. We then watched the play and it was very cute and they even got the audience involved. Now, every time I read one of those books I hear the actors’ voices.

May 18 – My 33rd Birthday

My boys got me a robot vacuum for my birthday. I can’t wait to use it! I took the big boys to their last Faith Based Friday and did a workout while Corbin napped. After school, we ate lunch and Corbin and Spencer took an afternoon nap. Daddy brought home snow crab legs from Hilltop Crab House and the big boys enjoyed eating the crab as much as I did! Nolan did a great job getting the meat out by himself, but Spencer still needed me to help. We went to get ice cream for dessert at Nottingham Creamery and in all the chaos of getting everyone ready to leave, I forgot my shoes! The yummy hot fudge sundae with mint chocolate chip ice cream made up for it.

May 20 – Playing in the Rain

Spencer and I were just finished yard work when we walked in the garage and it started to pour. Of course, Spencer had to go play in it!

May 24 – Nolan’s Pre-K End of Year Celebration

We dropped Nolan off then went up to the sanctuary for the celebration. The teachers spoke and then read a poem. After that, the kids processionaled in and sang one short song for every month they were in school. Then, the teachers called all the students’ names to receive a certificate. I only cried 4 times! We then went down to the community room where we got to see Nolan’s artwork and had refreshments. We got to take home a gift from the teachers as well. On the way out the door, Nolan started bawling because he didn’t want school to be over. He was very sad and cried the whole car ride home. It made me so happy, yet so sad to see how much he loved Pre-K this year. We are thankful for OCP and are looking forward to Spencer beginning his schooling there!

May 25 – Yard Work

Since we didn’t move in this house until July last year, we let the yard get out of control, so this year we had a lot of clean up to do because things were so overgrown.

Haul from the Amish farm on Crowl Toot Road. All this for $26!

May 26 – More Yard Work

Nolan went with me to pick up some more flowers and they had a cat that was hanging around us. Nevin was trimming a huge bush by our porch and knocked a baby bird out of the nest. He was able to get it back in, but we found it 2 days later deceased on the porch.

May 31 – Scavenger Hunt at Jordan Bank

We went to Jordan Bank for a Scavenger Hunt. It was so cute and well organized and although it made me miss teaching, I am really excited for Nolan. I think he will have a great year in kindergarten. We met the principal and secretary who gave Nolan a name tag. Then we started the scavenger hunt. Every room we went into, Nolan got a stamp or sticker on his paper. We got to see the nurse’s office, gym, cafeteria, 2 classrooms, music room, art room, library, and outdoor space. When we were done, Nolan got a play doh and held a sign for pictures. It was a great night and I’m excited (yes, still nervous) for him to begin kindergarten!
