Motherhood, This Week in Motherhood

This Week in Motherhood | Crafts, Spring, & Tee-ball

May 6, 2016

Asher and Silas

Every time I sit down to write a post, I feel like it needs to start with something like “hello blog, long time to see”. There just isn’t as much time in the day as I wish there was! A more accurate title for this post would be “this month in motherhood”, because I actually started it over a month ago. I’ve been posting more to Instagram and Facebook lately because those don’t take as much time. But I don’t want to let these photos here go completely to waste, so here’s a last ditch effort to finish it up and hit publish.

THE GOOD

1. We made superhero masks! Inspired by these. Normally this wouldn’t be all that exciting, but it had been months since I’d had the energy to get the art supplies out and do anything like this.

2. I finally, finally, finally wrote Finn’s birth story, it’s posted here. I also moved Asher and Silas’ birth stories over to this blog. They still need to be edited a bit, but it’s nice to be getting at least some of my favorite posts moved over to this new site.

3. The first signs of spring, Easter egg making, and really great visit from family this past week! The weather was rainy and cold most days and we didn’t get around to quite as many places as we planned, but we did make it to a lot of the best German cities within easy driving distance, as well as Pilsen, Czech Republic. And to top it off, Thane and I got to get out on a beautiful bike ride as well as a couple of dates. Thanks, Grammie and Grampie!

4. Tee-ball! Asher just started another sport, and so far it’s going so much better than soccer did a couple of years back. And my favorite part is the uniform, complete with a baby blue colored baseball hat. He looks so, so cute in it.

Normally I’d add a “not so good” section, but for the sake of time I’m just going to leave you with this; a very lively + blurry photo of all three of them (I can almost never get one of all three that’s not blurry).
