I have been such a terrible blogger as of lately. Let's do some catching-up. Last weekend we spent a great weekend in Palm Desert. The weather here this time of year is unpredictable.....lately it has been only reaching the high 60's(mama is ready for the 70's and 80's). The desert is always warmer and you are almost 100% guranteed sun. We always have a great time there playing by the pool and enjoying all the wonderful restaurants. This trip I took the children to a water park. The park was not great for small children, but we made due and had a great time regardless.

On a side note, tomorrow I register Ellery for Kindergarten. I actually started to get a little choked-up when I picked up the packets and walked into her elementary school for the first time. As a former Kindergarten teacher, it feels quite odd to be on the other side.

Hi! I've been horrible at checking your blog. Your babies are growing up so fast! Kindergarten, really. :(

Your family is precious!

Agreed.......I can still remember one of Ellery's first beach pics with her yummy thighs......seems like that was not long ago. And, now Kindergarten!

So much fun ahead.

Can't wait to see you guys this summer!

Kindergarten! I forget that CA has a late cut off! Will has loved every moment of K. They are closely watching their duck eggs. Only 21 more days until they hatch! Big Will is slightly obsessed with them and refers to them as "my duck eggs". 8 good eggs, 3 duds, and a maybe. Miss you and the kids are too darn cute!

Aww Mer, She is going to love it! She is so good about meeting new friends. Hagen is scared of new situations. That makes it so hard.

I love that darling little red and white striped dress she has on. And Dane...what a doll!
