June Already??

I can't believe it is June! May just flew by. We had a great, but busy month with Alyssa and Alanna both having birthdays, Mother's day, finishing up with homeschooling, preschool ending, and the list goes on and on. I still need to post some photos of Alyssa's crazy sleepover birthday party, but I had to get this one up tonight. Today was the first day all of the kids were done with their home school work. Tomorrow is their last day of school and I think everyone just wanted to relax and have fun today. We had our last day of soccer, and the kids came home and sat around and read for about 2 hours! The house was so quiet, I was able to get a ton of stuff done, and it was so nice!! We cleaned up, ate dinner, and then the fun began.
Arya loves to sing the theme to Star Wars. It is so funny to hear her burst into this little tune. So when she did it tonight Jared started singing the music when Darth Vader comes into the picture. Arya started saying, "No, no no!" She hid her head in her highchair (this was just after dinner and we were cleaning up), and then Jared tickled her. It was really funny, but then all of the other kids got involved and for the next hour it was screaming, laughing, tickling, rough-housing, and crying when they got hurt. We hardly ever horseplay like that, so it was a lot of fun. It was really hard to get into the Family Home Evening spirit after that, but I think it was well worth it!
