Friday Reflections – May 12

I’m so thankful for Friday this week! My parents fly in today and I am so excited to see them. It’s been a busy week (aren’t they all?) and I’m looking forward to spending some time catching up with them over some tea and banana bread.  I am so thankful for my mother-in-law (your card is on the way!) as well as all the women who have joined me on my motherhood journey. It’s a wild ride and takes a village more than I ever imagined. I hope you all get to spend some time with your mom and all the other mom figures in your life.


I’m not much for crafting but I do love putting together birthday parties. These simple goody bags were a nice counter point to the energy that 10 year old boys bring to a party. They left sweaty, happy and with more frosting on their faces than when they came.


Kai learned to ride a bike and is so very excited about it. They spent a week in gym class riding, learning hand signals and getting familiar with the rules of the road. He came home so excited and decided to make his bike sound like a motorcycle. He taped a card to the base of his bike so that the front wheel makes the card flap back and forth. Lets stick with bikes though ok? My mother’s heart isn’t ready for motorcycles yet.


We had the good fortune to get out of school early on one of the most beautiful days of the year. Evidence of this adventure endures by the amount of sand (nature’s glitter!) I am still stepping in but the shear joy of chasing waves with friends makes it worth it.

Enjoy your weekend!
