summer picnic

Madelyn starts first grade tomorrow. FIRST. GRADE. I can’t even believe that, but here we are! Last week we had a bit of time, just her and me, so I decided it was time we had a picnic! She had been wanting to have one for so long, so she was very excited! We made simple little sandwiches, packed up some grapes, mixed pink lemonade and played our favorite matching game from Bannor Toys. We clinked our glasses together and she beat me twice! She’s four years older than Kora is and (almost) six years older than Caleb, so sometimes I feel guilty that she misses out on some big kid stuff because the babies can’t always do the things she wants to do, so it was really nice to spend this time together. I think it’s so important to still make time for that one-on-one with your kids, especially once they get bigger.
