My French Adventure - Summer, 2015

About a year and a half ago, my sister Megan called and invited me to join her... for a week... in France. She would pay for my lodging and airfare. 

I was thinking what you probably are: "IS THIS REAL LIFE?!?!?!"

Kitty Kate is 3!

Our Kate turned 3 on April 3. In a word... HOW?!?! Oh it goes by so very quickly! She had had almost a full week of birthday fun!

Sweet Daddy worked for hours and hours and hours assembling a kitchen for the playroom. It is precious, and Kate loved it!

Field Trip to the Zoo

Today Jeremy, Kate, and I joined Luke on his first grade field trip to the Fort Worth Zoo. The last time we were there, Kate was just three months old... and in two days, she will be three YEARS old, so we were long overdue for a visit!

We had such a great day together! 

I'm feeling very thankful this evening, not only for our sweet little family, but also for our GES family of precious teachers and friends who have blessed our paths. 

I'm also feeling very tired! But being tired from a fun, happy day is the best kind of tired. Good night, friends! :)

Easter, 2016

While we fared much, much better this past Christmas, whenever holidays come around, it's hard not to recall the hot mess that was Christmas of 2014. That holiday really hammered home the absurdity that the holiest Christian holidays of the year STRESSED. ME. OUT - and that's about the farthest thing from the point, right? So, Team Roberts has started making holidays lower key... which still made for an eventful weekend. 

Kate's class had an egg hunt at school the Thursday before Easter. I was lucky enough to catch her cheesing it up in her bunny ears. :)

On Easter Saturday, we visited Grandma and Grandpa for the day. The kids had an egg hunt out on their beautiful land - so fun! 

The Easter bunny scored a lot of loot at the One Spot at Target, it seems. :) 

Looking so fine on Easter morning! 

Visited Honey and Grand's after church, where the kids got more loot.

Someday, I'll get a picture of them smiling in unison. For now, two will have to do. :)

We were pretty tuckered out from our Saturday travels, so we missed the big cousin egg hunt at Granny's this year. We will be there next year for sure!

So, far from slow paced for sure, but we had a fun- and family-filled weekend that kept in mind what the day is all about. He is risen, indeed!
