April 2024

It’s been a challenging month. But we are together and healthy Becky had a wonderful trip to Iceland with Beth. 

Working on her science project 

Ally’s gym (where she works) hosted a gymnastics meet and she judged the bars competition. They were supposed to dress business casual. One of Becky’s coworkers was at the meet and shared these pictures of Ally in action judging.

Back at home!

There was a solar eclipse and we viewed it outside with neighbors on our street.

Michelle sent Ally this tumbler. Positive affirmations are much appreciated.

Ally is happiest on the couch with all 3 of her pets.

Becky and Beth in Iceland

Ally and I dropped donations off at the MSPCA and had to visit with the animals up for adoption.

Napping with Cloey

Ally’s first time driving on an interstate highway. Mass Pike/I-90. 

Thank goodness for these cats. They bring so much joy.

Easter 2024

We dyed eggs at midnight.

We think Maggie is so fluffy it looks like she has on a big poofy dress.

We used our paper eggs to decorate for Easter morning.

Ally got squishmellows of her cats from the Easter Bunny.

Lots of eggs to look for.

Cloey was interested in the eggs

Cereal in the eggs is a tradition for us.

Easter pajamas!

Kimn and Beth came over for Easter supper and we celebrated with a Rice Krispie Peep for dessert.

It was a good day.

The rest of March 2024

Ally had her final club volleyball tournament of the season. No more volleyball until camp this summer and then school team in the Fall.

Spring Break Part 3

Doctors appointments, college visits, TV watching and some organizing. Week 3 is in the books. Ally heads back to school on Tuesday.

Ally asked for a large wall mounted makeup mirror for her vanity. 

It was a team effort. 

She’s pretty happy with it.

And spent the rest of the evening in her room snuggling with Daisy.

Outfit picture!

We watched the Academy Awards together. Billie Eilish is always so impressive.

Ally and I drove to NY to visit Syracuse University. We spent the night at my friend Michelle’s house. So good to see her but of course I forgot to take a picture of us.

Inside the O Dome

Beautiful day on a beautiful campus. Ally loved it.

She loved it so much we came home with a sweatshirt!

Later in the week we all drove to UMass Amherst for a tour there. Turns out we were not fans of this school.

And Ally was happy to get home and be with her cats.

Time to go back to school!
