life lately

I was going through my phone this morning and realized I don't blog about things anymore. 
Life is so busy my blog has been put on the back burner.  
Here are a few things that have been happening.

Easter 2017

So I have been trying to rotate this picture for what seems like 27 years now.  It won't.  I have tried everything I know how to do (which is look for the arrow that goes in a half circle and then I'm tapped out).
I have tried everything google is telling me to do.  I heart google.  But that was unsuccessful as well. So the boys are on here sideways.  It's fine.  Tilt your head a little and you can see how handsome they all looked Easter morning.

We had lunch with Grandpa Bernie and Steph (and family) on Easter.  
Grandma Taco has been busy moving so Easter was out of the question for her this year.
Then a week later we had to divide and conquer. Nate took the 3 youngest to his family's house for grandma squeakers egg hunt and I took Dilon to wrestling.  Hence the reason we have no pictures of Nate's family and Easter.  He just doesn't seem to think we need to document important days in our children's life. I however document so they remember that I did actually let them have fun.  Hopefully that will help erase all the times they tell me I never let them do anything and I'm like the meanest mom in the whole wide world because of it. 

I seem to always find seven bagillion selfies from my kids when I go through my phone.  

Dilon got a little more done with his scouting.  I loathe scouting.  I know I should like it. It teaches so much good to these boys, but I don't.  I don't like it one bit.  I am super grateful for leaders who are willing to help them out though.  Nate had a rule growing up that they didn't get their license until they got their Eagle.  He thinks we are implementing that in our house (I'm not quite on board with that but whatever).  He also told Grifin that he would give him $100 if he got his eagle before Dilon.  Challenge was accepted.  It should be interesting to see how that pans out.

 Speaking of Grifin, he is probably the coolest kid I've ever met.  I need some pointers from him.  I think what is so great is that he doesn't even kind of care about what others think of him.  
Case in point...this is how he walked out of school the other day

and Mr. Dax got to be part of the school leadership day.  They did such a great job with it.  He is also in the school play this Friday. My kid joined the school play. Who would have ever thought that would happen? My kid.  Pics to come of that. 

So that's about it.  
That's life lately at the Wright house.
