First Friend Photo

Here are the first and the most recent photos of Lucy, Larkin, and Logan for comparison. Taken about 2 1/2 years apart. Hurts my heart!

The Thinkery with the Yankeelovs

M.A. took Larkin to meet up at a playground with her friend Lexie and little bro Jack on Wednesday afternoon after gymnastics. It was really hot out, so they soon ended up at the Thinkery instead. Here are the 3 kids' headshots that they get to take when they walk in the museum. Larkin was just a little excited.

Fun at Gymnastics Camp!

Thanks, M.A. for dropping her off and picking her up all week.

Saying Goodbye to the Barcelonas

We went to Main Event in Austin on Friday afternoon to bowl and play arcade games with Lucy and Jude. We left for Mississippi the next morning, and the Barcelonas will have moved to Detroit before we get back. Larkin is pretty distraught about saying goodbye to her best buddy.

We survived IKEA

Armed with store maps, little pencils, and snacks from the cafe, we emerged a couple of hours after entering, without what we intended to buy but a cart full of other "must-haves!"

M.A. is here!

Time for playing with Care Bears and practicing our "cursuasive writing."

Fun with Friends

Larkin's best friend Lucy and her family are moving to Detroit in a couple of weeks (sob!). So we are squeezing in as much fun with the Barcelona family as we can before they leave. This past Saturday we met at a splashpad, and then Sunday we went to Sweet Ritual and then our neighborhood hipster grocery store In.gredients, where they have installed an awesome new pirate-ship playscape.

Logan and her Penguin Teachers

The outgoing 3-year-old classes at UTCDC had a end-of-year party at Pease Park Splashpad this morning. Logan loves Miss Leah and Miss Tori and is going to miss them a lot!

Helping Mom at School

Larkin came to school with me on my inservice day to help me pack up for summer. She went through all my markers, getting rid of those that were dried out. Very helpful!

Four Year Well Check

And 3 shots. Logan was so offended.

Last Day, First Day

Today was Larkin's last day of kindergarten and Logan's first day in the Leaping Frog classroom (4K). Time marches on. And mama cries.

Sugar Rush

We gave them all sno-cones, and now they're marching around the house like this, screeching loudly. We can't imagine why.

Horseback Riding!

On Cousin Claire's horse, with Aunt Taylor and Uncle Jay supervising.

Career Goals

Larkin's current career plans: "I want to be an artist when I grow up because I like to make art.  This is a picture of me as an artist."

The Petting Zoo

There were a bunch of different activities at Larkin's school May Fete last night, but the girls spent most of their time in the petting zoo.
