Last Tuesday night Will came to me with an angry, itchy, bumpy, red rash - which I could see spreading even as I drew a border line around it with a pen - on his shoulder and back. I grabbed our Ava diaper cream and slathered it on the affected areas. Within minutes the pain and itchiness had subsided…see for yourself!

and then a second application an hour later.
2. This picture of my girl, playing in the sand (dirt?) on her kindergarten field trip to the park, makes my heart sing. She adores school, her teacher, and her friends, and I love watching her delight in the simple pleasures that is being six years old.
3. On Friday night Will graduated from a blue belt to a brown belt in Tae Kwon Do. This boy makes me so proud.
4. On Saturday afternoon the temperature hit 90 degrees for the first time this year, so in keeping with our tradition of going out for ice cream when the mercury reaches 9-0, we headed to Spoons for bowls of
For the past four years our traditional 90-degree indulgence has taken place at Dairy Queen. However...Tom and I have twice found peanuts in supposedly peanut-free DQ drinks, which means DQ has become a risk we can't afford to take unless we plan to purchase pre-packaged ice cream treats.
5. We had a lovely visit with Tom's parents, who during their visit joined us for Will's karate graduation, a dance showcase of Hallie's (more on that next week), and the trip to Spoons. They built a fun, tree-related addition to our backyard (more on that next week as well), took us out for a few meals, had lunch with both kids at school, and…supervised the home front while Tom and I went on our "work date". It was glorious.
Bonus 6. At eight years old, Will still brings his beloved "Roar" with him when he climbs in bed to cuddle with his Grandma and Grandpa. Stay little, my boy.
Happy Friday, friends!
Linking up with High Five for Friday!
