What we've been doing BESIDES the kitchen remodel.

So, we have had a life other than the big remodel. (My cabinets are in, by the way, and I'm so excited. I will refrain from posting my after pics until it's really done)

Parker's school program
 Macy and Quinn celebrated Dylan (Macy's boyfriend) 3rd birthday at Jungle Jims. 
 Quinn's a sucker for a car with a Lion on it. 

 Emi had her portfolio party....I thought this was weird before I went, then decided I loved the idea. The kids sang a few songs and then could sit with you to go through ALL their projects from the year. She had a seriously creative teacher this year, and I was amazed at how much they did and created, even for boring subjects like science. They could only invite one guest, and I loved that I could focus on her work without my other kids bugging me. 
 That is one full portfolio!

 Quinn is posing for a shot instead throwing the ball in like he is supposed to. His team (Dragon it) was undefeated this season. They are a good little team. He even scored a couple goals this year. Emi's team (Purple Pandas.....doesn't that inspire fear?) was not so lucky. She has had one win in 2 years. But their team saw huge improvement this year. 
 Cutest boys ever.

 Emi went to the first of many social engagements this summer. This was her friends cupcake party. was that mom. The one who puts us to shame with her awesome parties. Just wait till next post to see what they did for their first book club. 

 Speaking of birthdays, my very awesome mother-in-law was in town for her birthday this year. Something that has never happened in all the years I've been in this family. We celebrated at Aunt Lisa's. 
 I'm glad we gave her a magnifying light up mirror. It was quite entertaining for the kids to see themselves so close. I refused to look in it. 

 Quinn graduated preschool. (sniff sniff) He's getting so grown up. I just love this little boy. 
 Quinn is quite the performer. He sings loud (and it sounds good) and is a total comedian onstage. 
 My future kindergartner

So...there are more pics to download, but that won't happen tonight. Father's day wears me out. 

Happy Father's Day to Bill, the best daddy in the world. The kids absolutely adore him and his fun and silly games he plays with them. He is truly the best daddy ever. 

And to my cute dad. He's the cutest guy ever. His path has been so tricky in the last 3 years, but he keeps in good spirits and has a super sense of humor. He is one of the most generous individuals in the world. 

Lucky to have amazing men in my life!

I am dying to see your fun that they are in..has Jim started painting yet?

Looks like we are doing many of the same things. Glad that awesome mom isn't in my life..I can't have any more reminders about how mediocre my mothering is...and the fact that I am totally fine with it...Luke's party is at Boondocks and we are all thrilled.

Love Quinn posing for the soccer picture! Haha
