Welcome to High Five for Friday – hosted by me, BeckyTif, and Della! Come, read up on what we’ve been up to this week and get to know some amazing bloggers down below!

It was such a great week!

1. All week long Elizabeth has had summer school at her preschool! It has been so great. She’s definitely loved Science Week there, and I have loved the 3 hours of peace! I had a great chance to be super productive!! It was like Stella Got Her Groove Back!

2. We’ve been gearing up for 4th of July! I stocked up on supplies at the Dollar Tree earlier this week. And then I’ve been planning activities for us next week. Thankfully, Elizabeth and William are all about it!

3. One part wasn’t so great, I guess… This past weekend was spent very bittersweet – we said goodbye to a few dear friends who are moving away. It’s the stinky part about medicine… come summer, we always have shifting…. le sigh.

4. It’s finally starting to happen, people! Our kids are starting to play together!! Parent Dream! I caught them on several occasions this week playing and giggling together. And then last night they played with a laundry basket for about 30 minutes! BLISS!!!!!!

5. Did you catch this week’s posts? There were 2 good ones! My favorite recipes from the month and my goal strategy for the rest of the year. Check them out!

Today’s featured blogger is Laura from Fantastically Four! Her blog is full of encouragement for us fellow mammas! She’s got so many great ideas, like her post on summer ideas for kids,  or her encouragement for moms dealing with the messiness of Mom Life. Be sure to swing over and say hi to Laura!

How was your week?? Can’t wait to hear all about it!

    We’ve had just a few small moments of our kids playing nicely together lately, and I completely agree–it’s WONDERFUL! Love your 4th of July gear and pre-k camp, too. We’re sending Kai to something similar next month. Thanks so much for your sweet words and feature! Have a happy Friday!

      The pre-K camp has been great! We have one week in July and one week in August to look forward to, thank goodness! Have a great weekend!!!

    William’s expression in the video still is so cute! And hooray for the kids playing together! Just wait until they’re a little older and start getting into trouble together 😉 Hope you have a great weekend!

    • Katie @ Cup of Tea says:

      HA! They are already bickering like older siblings 🙂 But I take the few blissful moments when they come along! Hope you have a great weekend too!!

    I remember when the boys first started to play together – it was pure bliss for me. And that only lasted for a few months. Haha! They eventually stopped playing and started pushing each other’s buttons on purpose!! Ahh! They still have moments but most of the time. It’s chaos. But I wouldn’t have it any other way! I don’t think. Ha. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    I think it’s so fun when the kids start to play together and you can really see their sibling relationship happen. I hope you have a great Fourth of July!

    P.S. – This is a totally off-topic, but I love your kids names!
