Here’s what we did in our everyday lives this week:
We finished packing for our move to Michigan! In other words, welcome to the chaos that was our week!
Flashback to winter: We had a few snowy mornings this week.
We said goodbye to our friend by having a little picnic in her high school parking lot.

I love it when these two play together. It’s fun to see it happening more and more.
When we moved here, all of our belongings fit in our Impala—times have changed, times have changed! Now it takes a Ubox, a suburban, and a car top carrier (coming soon!) to contain our possessions.
(Pic by Caitlin) The BEST part of the week was welcoming our new niece, Emily “Millie” Alice Schripsema, into the family! We love you already!
Elsie learned how to wave! As you can imagine, she made several new friends at the grocery store.
For the most part, Samuel seems to be doing well, despite all the changes in his little life. He is mostly sweet, so funny, learning new words everyday, obsessed with all things “motor,” generous with his hugs and kisses, and really wants to do whatever Daddy is doing.
When your mood matches the weather. Sniff, sniff.
We saw a monster truck! Samuel’s dream come true!
Snow for St. Patty’s Day!
Elsie, explorer extraordinaire
Farewell, little Impala! We hope you have a good life with your new family.
Our sweet landlords threw a Pancake Pajama Party for Samuel’s 2nd birthday. It was absolutely perfect. I’m glad he was able to spend some quality time with his little Oregon friends.
