missing blogger is found!

I am well aware that it's been over a month since my last posting.

My apologies.  It's not like I didn't want to blog.  It's not like I didn't think about blogging. 

Fact is, I just didn't have the energy to blog.  Since it's been nice out and the days have been longer, the kids aren't going to bed until a little later.  By the time they are in bed, I don't feel like doing much of anything.  Sorry :)

Anyway, here's a few photos to catch us all up to speed about what we've been up to around here...

We celebrated Mother's Day at my sister, Megan's house. 
Here's my mom, my siblings, and me...

And of course we have to get Grandma & Pop-Pop with all the grandkids.
First, a nice [?] smile face...

Then, mass chaos...

Then, the moms with the kids...

With all the crazy storms blowing through, we've had some amazing skies. 
Aren't I blessed to have this view from my deck??

We've been picking and eating
and picking and eating
and picking and making strawberry things
like jam and shortcake with all our
yummy strawberries.  YUM!

And since we've lost so many shutters in the wind tunnel in which we live [note all missing top shutters], we decided to change the color from the lovely [faded, 11 year old] hunter green to basic black. 

I'm still getting used to it and I have absolutely no idea what color to paint my front door. 

Ryan graduated from our church's Wednesday night kindergarten Scooters program.  His teachers were wonderful and put together a really special evening complete with caps and gowns and diplomas.

And what would spring be without baseball?
Evan is playing for a local township's Little League for the first time ever. 
Here he is up at bat....not a bad stance!?!  :)

I hope May has treated you and your family well. 
Hopefully, my blogging will become less sporadic as summer approaches.
