Happy Father’s Day to all the amazing Dads out there!
Today I celebrated with the father of our sweet kids. We went to church as a family and ventured to a water park to beat the heat, stopping for Culver’s fast food and frozen custard along the way.
In true Daddy O. fashion, he kept his cool even when the kids were losing it in the backseat. While we don’t have pictures from the waterpark (not really the best photo opps IMHO), I though I’d share a few of my favorite Daddy O. pictures.
Daddy O. through the years – being an awesome dad
From eye-roll to crazy face making while reading stories, Daddy O. is patient, loving, and a kid at heart. We’re so blessed to call you ours. Love you!
It’s that time of year again – last day of school!
My kids are SO excited, and I’m emotional! Look how big my babies are getting:
Top: First day of 2nd grade and kindergarten / Bottom: Last day
I’m ending the kindergarten era: both kids have been in 4K and 5K, so four total years of kindergarten.
This morning my son read me a book at breakfast time.
Last night I read to both of my kids, though many nights they read to themselves.
I’m so stinking proud of these kids and feel so blessed to be their mom.
I expect to be a complete mess when they move onto middle school and graduate high school. That’s a lot for a mom’s heart to handle! This year I even cried watching a video of 5th graders leaving their school – kids who are not even mine. Yikes! Good luck parents, if you’re celebrating a big milestone or just a bit emotional about the end of the school year like me!
I’ve written about these emotional days before in case you want to look back like I did this morning:
Have a wonderful summer!
I write so many posts about winter…or maybe I have more time to write in winter since we’re holed up inside.
At any rate, it IS spring and almost summer-like in Wisconsin. Here are some of my recent pictures that show the changing seasons.
Pretty in purple
Love the snuggly ball of baby geese

Off they swim
This morning I woke up to this:
Gotta love an April snowstorm
And earlier this month, we were enjoying 90’s in Phoenix.

I think we should have extended our trip. Yikes!
I hope your spring is nicer than ours here in Wisconsin. Please come back soon Spring!
