Wrapping it Up in May

I wish I could keep up the former frequency of blog posts, but I just find that harder and harder to do as the kids get older and their activities increase.  As the school year comes to an end (Five more days!!!), so do a lot of the extracurriculars.  (Soccer, Dance, Cub Scouts, and Girl Scouts...all DONE until the fall.) The last month has gone fast, so that must mean we are having fun.  We are, but we are also looking forward to the less structured, carefree days of summer.  Hopefully then I can find time to continue documenting these three growing up!  A few things of note from the last month:
Penny and her fellow Daisy Girl Scout sold enough cookies to earn a trip to the zoo.  They also got to ride the train, the carousel, go in the butterfly house, and have ice cream!  Penny had so much fun! Also, in her first year in Girl Scouts she earned all her Daisy petals!  One more year of Daisies before becoming a Brownie!
Cooper had a big year in Cub Scouts!  He loved it!  Also, Daddy was the den leader this year which really made it an awesome experience for him.  Cooper earned his Tiger badge and Daddy got to be the one to pin it on!
And then this little bundle of sweetness.  Ellie is now two and a half and she just keeps growing and changing!  She talks a blue streak now and we just love listening to that sweet voice!  She is finishing up her first year at preschool, which she loves.  On Mondays and Fridays, the days she doesn't go to school, she asks to go and cries when I have to tell her it isn't a school day!  
We did manage to sneak in some lake time with all the goings-on around here!
