Friday Favs: Graduation, Sunscreen and Baseball Blues

Holy busy May! How is May nearly over? I was blaming the fast paced month on vacation but if I'm being honest, it seems to be going by faster and faster each and every week. Our weekend is packed full and I am actually looking forward to Monday, which provides us with a chance to breath. I have so much to share since it's been a full month since I've shared a Friday Favorites. Here is this week's highlights and random thoughts.


ONE | ADIOS PRESCHOOL


Connor's last day of school was yesterday. The theme for this year's graduation was "Oh, The Places You'll Go" by Dr. Seuss. This was CJ's second year of preschool, with the same two teachers. Connor loves school and we've never had any issues with him not wanting to go. He is eager to attend, mostly so that he can visit with his friends. He is quiet the social butterfly. Next year he will have a new set of teachers in a new classroom and he is super eager to start school. I hope he doesn't ask to go to school all Summer long; that would make for a long 3 months!

TWO | SUMMER ESSENTIALS


Now that we are officially on Summer break, it's time to gather up our favorite Summer items. Connor is obsessed with bubbles and we go through more than our fair share. He has started wearing sunglasses since I don't have the ability to turn down the sun. Both of those items I snagged from Target. Block Island sunscreen was sent to us by our friend Kelly from Block Island Organics. We love this SPF! It's non-greasy, light-weight with no artificial fragrances. It's perfect for an hour of backyard play. It's not only ideal for Connor but for me, too. I can wear it under my make-up thanks to it's matte finish. Visit their site, snag some sunscreen and check out their entire line of products free of gluten, dyes and artificial fragrances.

THREE | MY FAVORITE MAY READ


Mommas, I love love love The Magic of Motherhood! Each chapter has me shaking my head yes because each and every one of these tales of motherhood I relate with. The encouragement within these pages is very similar to what you would expect from your best girlfriends. I've laughed, I've cried, I've grieved throughout each chapter. Motherhood is quiet the ride so when you can read a book filled with honest stories that you could have told yourself, you know it's a great read*.

FOUR | "THE RIGHT STUFF"


On Tuesday, I joined my friend Lindsey for a night of 90's music. We got to spend the evening with Boyz II Men, Paula Abdul and THE New Kids on the Block. It's pretty much every child of 80's dream come true. Boyz II and NKOTB were fantastic. Paula has amazing dance skills but was lip syncing the entire show was a bit of a letdown. My favorite New Kid is Jonathan Knight. I don't know why but I've always loved that he was more reserved and quiet. During a break we looked up the band on Google and I was a bit surprised to see that some of the members are nearing 50!

FIVE | BASEBALL BLUES


Y'all baseball is not going well. Connor just doesn't enjoy it like he does soccer, which I have to admit doesn't bother me. We signed him up for a 5 week baseball program and I am eager to wrap it up on the 31st. He just doesn't love it like I had hoped. He enjoys running the bases but catching, batting and throwing is a whole other story. I am fine with us not being a baseball family. We will stick to soccer and swimming.

Our weekend is packed full. Today is the only day we don't have plans but that just leaves me with the time I need to get the house together. Tomorrow we have a swim evaul for CJ at Aqua Tots, a birthday party and then I'm going to another concert with my sister-in-law. Sunday we have church, a grad party and then a graduation ceremony. So... we shall rest on Monday!
