Back Track, a bit!

It is June 5th and I realized that we have kind of abandoned the blog, but maybe just maybe with summer upon us we can be better about it. Benjamin has sworn off facebook, and so he might be back into blogging after school gets out! Spring in Vermont can typically be hit or miss, but this year it has been long and glorious. We did have some weeks of rain and clouds, but it hasn't gone from 59 degrees to 89 degrees, which always takes us by surprise. In fact, we are easing into summer with the last few weeks cruising around 65-70 degrees. Perfection in my eyes.

I celebrated my first mother's day and was surprised with an amazing pencil drawing of a photograph of Felix and I. Jacob did the drawing and it is beautiful. The photo doesn't do it justice...but you will get the idea

As Benjamin wraps up his year, I am jumping into next year already. I have had lots of meetings and planning days with my new team of teachers. It is a very dynamic team and I am excited to get to know them better. I have a lot of work ahead of me this summer, so Benjamin and I are going to set up a work schedule for the summer months. I will be developing curriculum and he, working on his novel...which I recently finished reading and is really great! I had moments where I literally couldn't put it down.

Felix is growing like a weed and is so much fun. He is developing quite the little personality. He is chatty, silly, hotheaded, smily, and moving constantly. I really can't figure out where he would get any of those traits. haha I will say this...his red hair is not so red anymore, and actually quite blond. But, those eyes...holy moly are they blue!

I cannot believe that is first birthday is approaching! It has been an amazing year for all of us! We absolutely love being parents and couldn't be blessed with a sweeter guy!
