Teacher Gifts

This years teacher gifts are my favorite so far! 
Thanks to my Mom for helping me put together the plants in the jars :)  We layered in some soil, then a little sand and a few "hens & chicks" into each jar. 

I added the thicker bakers twine around the jar and a note to each teacher.
The front of the note is the Thank You, stamped with Whisper White craft ink on Basic Black cardstock. I used a sponge dauber around the edges to give it that chalk board look. On the back side is a personal note to each teacher.

The boys gave them out to their teachers today and all of them loved it!

Father's Day Weekend

We had a very busy Father's Day weekend! 
Friday night the boys and I went to the lake. Michael was away with work all week, so the boys and I needed something to keep us busy.

The kids did some minnow fishing:

The boys got a dart board for Christmas. Opa helped them put it up and they spent most of Saturday playing darts:

And of course... quadding:

Saturday night we picked up Michael from the airport. Hooray! He's home!!

Sunday we went to my parents for a BBQ with the whole Hermann family:

Opa with all his grandkids:

My boys :) 
Jakob, Levi and Zack were so happy to have their Daddy home!

Quadding at the Lake

Now that the cabin is pretty close to being finished, we have been spending lots of our weekends at the lake. One of the highlights for the boys of going to the lake is quadding. They all love it!
