Three of our eight birthdays happen during the first three weeks of spring, which also happen to coincide with Palm Sunday and Holy Week and Easter this year. Plus the sap is still flowing and the syrup is still boiling and the garden is being planned and there's a full kitchen remodel starting the weekend after Easter and Paul is preparing for his first communion and oops, I should really order those end of year tests soon, shouldn't I?
Anyway. I'm not anxious or overwhelmed exactly. Just....I'm just all in, y'all. I'm feeling really so immersed in all the things. So how 'bout some pich-ers instead of talkin'?
(Q: do your kids only own red t-shirts? It's like every picture you post has somebody in a large red t-shirt. What gives?
A: I don't believe in other colors. Sorry.
Kidding! We have a bag of old large-ish t-shirts for the small ones to use as art smocks and most of them are red because blah blah blah long boring story you don't actually care about. So. Pictures during crafts means smocks means lots of shapeless red t-shirts. Exciting, I know.)
Don't worry! There was an entire plate of cookies at the other end of the table. If birthday girl wants cookies instead of a cake, birthday girl gets cookies instead of a cake, mmmmhmmmm.
Let's note that we've had to move all small appliances to a table in the dining room because something is wonky with the electrical in the kitchen and instead of paying the electrician to come twice, we're just white-knuckling through until the old kitchen goes out and the new one goes in. So basically it is cray cray up in here. I mean, even more cray cray than usual. Which is a lot of cray. MANY THOUSANDS OF LITERS OF CRAY.
(NB- portions of new large appliances just chillin' in the sunroom on the other side of that slider waiting for install day. Super quality photography happening here. Dang.)

Keep on swimming, friends. Keep on swimming.
(on Thursday I plan to link this with Like Mother Like Daughter, but probably I will forget. Visit them anyway, okay? Great.)
