On April 30th we had our first 100 degree day in Phoenix. Which means pool season is officially upon us and the school days are coming dangerously close to hitting single digits.
The boys celebrated with our NEW POOLSIDE BASKETBALL HOOP.
Here is what we were up to in the month of April:
Another Soccer season wrapped for Maks (7) and Sloan(5). They both excelled so much in their first year that they were asked to try out for the Academy Team (which is essentially club soccer for the younger crowd). Tryouts were held the last week of AprIl and they both made it! With 2/4 kids claiming the sport I’m officially snagging the title of “Soccer Mom.’ And I’m not mad about it.
Xander (10) is still busy with the current baseball season and has been playing short stop and first base this year. He also started pitching halfway through the season and has really taken to it. He will likely start pitching lessons this summer.
Xan took the first Jeffers kid solo flight this past week. I was a HOT MESS, but Southwest Airlines was amazing and I couldn’t be happier with the experience. You can see what he was up to in the video below.
Gymnastics meet season wrapped for Bryn(12) and she’s getting the itch for a big change as she officially enters middle school next school year. More on that as we make it official.
She has also had a major pre-teen growth spurt the past few months and is officially the same height as her younger brother. And she’s very vocal about it 🙂
All four kids are getting ready to wrap up their first school year in Phoenix and we couldn’t be happier with how much they have grown and flourished in a new state and school.
We are so proud of them!
Tommy officially wrapped up Tax season in Indiana and spent a week at home resting and recovering before heading back to Indiana for two more weeks to finish up extensions and loose ends. While he was here we had friends over for a taco night, saw the new Mario movie, hiked a new trail and worked in day dates at two of our favorite local brunch spots!
He will be back home for good in about a week and a half!
I spent April recovering from an ankle injury, completing the phase one primary bedroom makeover, setting up the patio for a summer of cookouts and pool parties, taxing kids everywhere and chaperoning a Kindergarten field trip. I indulged in self care in the form of LOTS of yoga classes and finally deciding to get my colors done so I can know how to be more intentional with my wardrobe..

APRIL AT HOME –
This past month I completed the phase one primary bedroom makeover and started working on furnishing the back patio for summer pool parties! The last week of the month our landscape crew started demo in the backyard, tearing out old plants and replacing irrigation and rock. We had them fix a drainage issue and lay a paver walkway from the back to the front of our property. I’ll share before and after pictures soon!
Next month. We are getting a new roof! I have full trust in the company we are using and can’t wait to give you a full review after the work is complete!
This month I shared a genius PAINTING TIP FOR TEXTURED WALLS.
I purchased a new pair of CROSS TRAINERS that are life changing AND CUTE!
