I partied nonstop for my birthday today! Preschool party, brunch with friends, Rushton’s recorder performance, Logan’s swim practice, bowling with @whyisjake and the kids (and curly fries), Mod Pizza, and brownies made by Hailey. It was a busy, perfect day and I felt so loved. Thank you for all the birthday wishes! 36 is gonna be good. 😎

Happy Mother’s Day! I guess it’s appropriate that everyone went to bed in tears. Each day feels like a marathon, but somehow it still feels like time is slipping through my fingers and that breaks my heart. The love I have for these kids is indescribable. I’m beyond grateful for own mother, for all the mothers in the village that raised me, and for women everywhere making a difference in their world. ️

Hailey is so creative – I love how much she loves crafting, and how she dives head first into any art project we attempt. Sometimes I get paralyzed by so many ideas and colors and choices, but not Hailey! She has vision and whimsy and perseverance.

So proud of my little sister Laura for earning her MBA from the University of Utah! Graduations and weddings make me all weepy and nostalgic. I’m so grateful that my siblings and parents could be there to celebrate with her. Now go conquer the world, @bainla!

Today I chaperoned a gaggle of 3rd graders as they ran through the orchard and learned a few things at the John Muir House. Can’t wait until Rush is officially in 4th grade and we get our free National Parks pass! “The mountains are calling and I must go…” 🌲⛰

This Alexander Hamilton costume is probably the roughest hack job I’ve ever sewn, but it works! I was hoping Rush could rap “My Shot”, but his oral presentation was only supposed to be 1-2 minutes so he settled for some key Hamilton life facts instead. But he’s totally into the soundtrack now, so I’ll take it!️
