My Month In Numbers, April 2016

My favorite way to recap a month is with a ‘My Month In Numbers’ post. They have quickly became some of my favorite posts to write and read. It is the perfect way to recap all the little and big things that make up your months and the host Deena from Shoes To Shiraz is awesome. Do you need any other reasons to join? I think not.

Here is a peek into what our April looked like…

So proud of Marissa and her second place 5K finish.

April was definitely a month full of unexpected surprises.
We are naively & prayerfully optimistic that May will be much less eventful.

    Yay for school being out for summer!! That’s so exciting. Cam only has a few more weeks. I am so sad by the number of times you cried. 🙁 So sorry about your rough month. I hope May is pretty excellent for you.

    • Oh man I was a total basket case last month, not good, not good at all. This month is already going by much better :). Happy Friday eve!

  • Meghan Flinn

    The number of times you cried makes me sad. What a rough month you had! Here’s to hoping May is better! And 12 trips to the gym is 12 more than I did lol!!!

    • Last month flat out sucked. I’d drink to a better May for sure ;). Hehe he! I am 3/5 days so far this month. May is definitely looking up!

  • I’m sorry you cried so much! Hoping that number will go down in May for sure.

  • Yay, thanks for participating! Love all the truths in this posts and here’s to hoping less worries in May and more celebrations!

    • I think that is exactly what will happen. Thanks Deena!

  • I’m hoping May is a little less emotional for you!! Hugs friend!

  • Love it!!! I totally need to do this…

  • You had some hurdles in May for sure but you also had so many wonderful memories too!!! Big hugs to you my friend. This mama gig is tough on even the coldest of hearts! You are doing a great job!

    • Thank you so much friend. May is already off to a much better start!

  • Wow! Such a busy April! I love that you got out in the 37 so many times and that the girls are so excited about riding in it as well!
    Hoping for a less eventful May for you!

    • Thank friend, me too! We totally took the 37 grocery shopping the other day and it was the best ever :D!

  • Praying this is a less emotional month! You had quite the ups and downs, friend!

    • Thanks Becky. April was flat out rough. I think things are looking up for May for sure!

  • I know May is going to be the BEST month for y’all!! And school’s out so that’s gotta’ mean something!!

    • You’d think, right?! I think May will be MUCH better too.

  • Justine Y

    Loved your numbers Beth. I always love seeing your chalkboards and I’m glad you switch it up often. I have a tendency to write something (not as cute as you do, obviously) and then leave it… for months. Oops.
    Yay for summer break! My son is in a Charter school hybrid so he only has 5 days left of on site classes. But I’m going to try to keep up something this summer because he thrives on consistency.

    • Baha ha! Mine has been blank all week. I keep saying, “I’ll get to that” and nope, I don’t. Wahoo for almost being done for him. I agree on the consistency thing. It is rough on kids to go from lots of school to no school and back to lots. We have been a bit out of sorts this week but I am hoping we settle into a schedule soon.

  • Desiree @ Macke Monologues

    I always forget to do a post like this! And I love when everyone else puts theirs together. I need to put this on my calendar for next month!!
    May is going to be fabulous for you. I just know it.

    • Put it on your calendar for sure! I think May is going to be quite spectacular too!

  • Whitney Jordan

    Thinking of you!! I’m hoping this month brings answers, clarity and help with Emily’s eyes and that there are less tears. I am sure it’s stressful to manage all of it so you are definitely in my prayers. It hurts any mama’s heart to hear about kiddos struggling or dealing with tough situations. I’m glad that you’re done with school and can focus on some summer fun 🙂

    • Thank you so much. There has definitely been less tears this month but things definitely aren’t all better yet. We’ll get there though. Summer fun, YES! We need to have some more of that soon.
