Yesterday marked the official end of the preschool year. The video is from a song the class sang at their party. Forgive the shaky footage, I was trying to hold a squirmy Alaina at the same time.

Sleepy Baby

Brian and Olivia were doing stuff outside so Alaina was sitting by the door to watch them. When I came to check on her this is what I saw. Poor little girl must have been tired!

Strawberry Pickin'

We all went strawberry picking at a local farm here today. I haven't been since I was a little kid so it was really neat to take my own. I have fond memories of eating the berries and taking your time picking out ones for your bucket. It's funny because Brian seems to remember it differently. He remembers dirt, hot sun, and hard work. I guess he probably picked a lot more berries than I ever did =) Alaina also took it easy riding on daddy's back while she took a snooze.

So now what to do with all the berries? I made strawberry pie because it is one of my favorites.

Of course Ms. Olivia helped by layering the strawberries in the pie and stirring the glaze while it thickened.

The final result:

Yum, it was good! I love warm weather and strawberries.


I thought I would give some updates on everyone in the house:

Olivia is still enjoying preschool and dance class right now. They will both be over next month so were hoping to replace those with a membership to the local pool. Hoping that will keep her busy during the summer months.

Alaina's doing really well right now. She is pulling to kneel around the house, pulling to stand in her crib, and is crawling a few inches on all fours now. I never even noticed half the milestones Olivia met when she was a baby and now I have books about them. It is so incredible to see your child work at a skill ever so slowly and then accomplish it. The wait makes the reward unbelievably sweet.

Since I didn't write anything with the baby announcement I will give some details. Harvey Girl #3 is due Sept. 24. The last two have been on time so I'm hoping this one follows the trend. She looks healthy and yep, we are super excited to meet her come Sept.!
I'm busy taking care of the little ones I have as well as preparing for the new edition. My semester at school wraps up this week and I'm really looking forward to that. This has been a hectic semester, but I'm sure I'll miss it when it's over. One final paper that I'm supposed to be working on right now =) and two final exams till it's done.
As for Brian he is still enjoying work. He just finished training in a computer programming class about AutoCad. I'm not sure what that entails so I won't bother to share here. All I know is I sure am glad to see him at the end of the day!
