So, I've been trying to get caught up with stuff around the house and that includes this blog. Since we've moved I haven't been updating it as much. Hopefully some normalcy will come to the house soon and we will find ourselves in some sort of routine for the summer. I am officially done with teaching until August although I start my last class for my masters degree on June 15th. I can't wait for that to be done as well as the written and oral tests that go along with it. I will have to be enrolled in a fall class to qualify for graduation in the fall (they really like to suck every penny out of you!!)
This is a "catch-up" blog of happenings at and around the Abbott house. I will start with the most recent and work my way backwards.
Noah and I attended Ellie's field day today. Here's Ellie sharing her popsicle with Noah:
Here's Ellie at her field day (isn't she a cutie?!):
Noah playing on the beam at playground at Ellie's school:
Busy boy on the go!!:
Checking out the cart near the "spoon" relay:
Noah got a new tricycle for Easter but because we were moving we hadn't put it together until last night. He was SO excited when he say it this morning! He gets on it by himself a number of different ways, rings the bell and goes backwards. If only he could figure out how to go forward! (It's got a handle on it so an adult can push and steer him from behind without killing their back- total life saver!)
First picture on his new bike: in his jammies none the less!:
Last year Justin smoked a pork-butt and I think it's becoming a new Memorial Day weekend tradition. Here's Noah and Mary at dinner:
Pork-butt dinner, yum!!
Memorial day: Mary reading to Noah:
Memorial day at Green Mountain Cemetery (planting flowers at Granny and Gramps grave):
Aunt Leahna graduated last weekend and Adam was in town for her party and the help her move to California to be with him. Here's Uncle Adam:

Noah and Daddy- Noah loves to be tickled!!!!:
Waving "HI" (okay, not really: he's actually coming after the camera!):
We are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel with regards to painting. We have painted every room except the laundry room, living room and the coat closet (and the small adjacent hallways). Hopefully we will finish up in a couple weeks. I think Uncle Seth volunteered to help Justin with the vaulted ceilings in the living room?!!
Here's Noah helping take off the painting tape in the kitchen (it's hard to keep the tape on, he LOVES to pull it off!!!):
We hope you all are well!!! Hope to do a better job keeping the blog updated so please check back on us and see what we're up to! Hoping to take some trips this summer to the zoo, parks, maybe even a Rockies game (last year we went to a game at Wrigley, I told J it'd be fun to take Noah to a different ball field every year and since I will be busy in school Coors Field would work well this summer!)
