Friday Five: Butterfly, Cars and Soccer

Join me every Friday by sharing 5 thoughts and 5 pictures from the week, easy way to end the week and share those things that don't need a whole post of their own. #Friday5

5 Thoughts

1. In less than one month it is Ryder's birthday!  Just a few days after that my kids get out of school for summer!  Time just goes so fast.

2. Alex's soccer game was a close one, they were definitely out playing the other team but we just could not score (much different from the previous week when we slaughtered the team), but in the end, thanks to a beautiful assist from Alex, we won 1-0.

3. We let our butterfly go this week.  It has been so much fun watching him go from a caterpillar and through the stages.  Lucas actually got a kit for something similar at Christmas, so last night I ordered his butterflies, so in two days we will have more caterpillars.

4. I got my kids all signed up for swim lessons yesterday.  They begin shortly after school gets out.  They are all really excited, well except for Ryder who still is saying he won't put his face in the water.  So crazy that summer really is that close.

5. Tuesday was our Pinewood derby.  Lucas actually cut out his car totally by himself (Eric was there watching and giving direction).  He was very proud of his car, he didn't end up in the top three but he had a great car.

What is your Friday Five?


  1. Oh, man - that guys beard in the family photo! Hello 1990's! :)

    We had that same caterpillar kit! We ordered butterflies for it once, but then never used it again, so I think we gave it away when we moved to London. Totally cool watching them transform, though!

  2. We have to sign up for swim lessons too. My husband went in to do it and the usual session we chose was not up for some reason so he bailed. But he'd better do it soon!

  3. My son would love the butterfly kit. So cool that you guys did that! And I can't believe summer is SO close!!

  4. That car looks pretty darned awesome! He should be so proud of himself!

  5. Love Ryder's one sock and the video of you releasing the butterfly was really awesome!! Summer is fast approaching it is crazy!

  6. You are such a fun mom! I love reading about your family and the things you do with your kids. You always inspire me to be better. Thank you for that. Let's not even talk about how beautiful your pictures always look!

  7. I noticed this week that you're weather is supposed to be hot as of mid week. It is crazy that summer is like here now! How cool to watch the butterfly transform. Might have to keep something like that in mind for a few years from now at our house.
