andiamo: April 2017



Thoughts upon exiting church yesterday when I asked them what they did at Sunday School...
Dominic, age 2 years: Played with toys. Trains. Toys. Yup. I want fishies. Trains. Fishies! I want fishies!!!! Mommy! Mommy! I want fishies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

David, age 4 years: Uh I builded like a rectangle? And we sang and colored a paper. That's it I think. We learned about the Bible. About Jesus Bible tells me so little Bible tells me so. They knocked down a building because they wanted to build a new one and that's it mommy. The Bible tells me so.....

Letty, age 6 years: The book said, actually the Bible, the people they walked for a really long time. Then the people knocked down the building and the other people was so happy but the old people were sad because they like the old building. I forget what their names are. I sit next to David when we sang songs. He gave me a hug and a kiss. We builded a tower and we used a block I mean a rectangular prism and some dice and we builded the floor first and then we went upper.

Past weekly shots found here.


buy me some peanuts...


We went to this event last year and so of course when it comes around again I don't want to miss it... Free baseball and beer? Well okay not free beer, but free ball. And even while I am no sports enthusiast I am an enthusiast of exposing my kids to all sorts of adventures. Sports included I suppose. And this year we were joined by my sister and her family and my sister-in-law and her daughter! I bring all the family to all the things! The more the merrier! Which is always true, I think, when it comes to family.

We didn't do much as far as activities go, they had a lot less than last year. But it was a gorgeous sunny afternoon, there were tables and chairs and beer and pretzels. What more could we ask for where baseball is concerned?
Letty informed me that it is her "signature" to take a photo of us whilst taking a sip from whatever beverage swe may have. I'd say she's right about that.


a field trip. on public transportation.


Last week David's preschool took a trip down to Pet Smart. On a public bus. I'll just let that hang there a second.... 

Needless to say I had to be a chaperone on this adventure. We lined up bright and early on a Wednesday and off we went, bus fare in hand! The ride down was fine... other than an unsavory gentleman asking far too many questions re: the children. Once there the kids were given quite the tour. Animals were touched. A new fish purchased for the school fish tank, etc. 
Once the tour was over we headed to the grocery store where each kid got themselves one whole cookie for being so good before we headed back on the bus back to the school.
It was chilly and had started to rain....

I don't know... Other than a bunch of unflattering photos of yours truly, I guess it worked out just fine. And now I know how to use our town's public transportation should I ever need to get down to Pet Smart.


our easter day


Our Easter Sunday was a doozy. At the end of the day it felt like it had been three days, at least. We had school the next day too so we had all our school night activities to complete to boot! 

Dominic gets up super early each morning and we thought he may want a crack at his Easter basket before his siblings but Captain Observant didn't even notice the baskets or the powder footprints in my kitchen. He's going to make some woman super happy in the future I just know it. When the big kids got up they broke into the basket enjoying their chocolate and magna tiles for breakfast, etc. The Easter Bunny also returned all the boys Hot Wheels that yours truly had thrown in the garbage in an irrational fit that resulted in nothing. The boys didn't miss them at all. Nice of the bunny to return them and all that though yea? Letty got an Ever After High book, some Shopkins and those loom rubber bands? You remember the ones. 
After I made the famous Sicilian Easter soup we all packed up half of our belongings, the water table and bounce house and towels and bathing suits and the like and headed over to my parents. Where we spent the next six hours playing outside, having an egg hunt, dying eggs, eating, and the like. It was certainly an odd Easter, being so hot, but it sure was a nice day and the sun felt fantastic!
Past Easters here, here and here!
