dance recital.




Sophie and Taylor were only in pointe this year, but they borrowed these outfits from their teacher for the whole group finale. She thought they would look funny in their fluffy ballerina dresses during a hip hop number. And luckily, at dress rehearsal, they started with the finale!

7th grade track.



Sophie figured out the tricky footing for triple jump and placed at several track meets! It ended up being her favorite event and she came home with at least two first place medals for this event during track season!



Taking selfies between events...

Little sister wasn't a big fan of some of these cold track meets!




She also did great in the 800 meter run and placed in it several times!

Who brings a cat to a track meet?! (John Merritt does...) ;)

We froze at the first track meet of the season and sweated like crazy at the final one! Track meets still aren't her favorite thing. =)

Sophie ended up with a pulled hamstring during the NCKL meet and fought it all afternoon. So proud of her for continuing with all 4 events, limping a little more each time. She wasn't able to do her best in her individual events, but still pulled out a 1st place finish as the anchor for her 4x100 relay team.

Loved watching this girl compete and do her best!

mother's day.

{An early Mother's Day treat from someone pretty sweet! #pbtwists #drubersdonuts}

{Thankful for these three (not so little!) people and forever grateful that I'm lucky enough to get to be their momma.}

{Panera, Target, one on one time with one of my favorite people, and coming home to a clean house and happy kids. Mother's Day can't get much better than that!}

miss tecoa's farm.

One of my co-workers has a regular petting zoo/farm and she was nice enough to invite some of us out for a visit one day! Milking goats, riding horses, puppies, bunnies, kittens, horses, a longhorn and a llama! So much fun!
