summer. random. + a video while you're waiting!!!

Ugh. It is now summer in MO, and it's like I have this weird feeling about it, ya know? When I think of summer I think of hot, profusely sweaty days. But I also think of cool evenings and swimming in the creek. I think of red wasps, and their continual stings. But I also think of butterflies and chasing them with Lilli. I think of ants (which I hate with every.inch. of. my. soullll.) and cotton mouth snakes and finding copperhead snakes in our yard, but then I also think of riding horses, and snuggling with the bunnies. I think of extra busy days where we are exhausted at the end, and I also think of extra long days where we might have some more free time.  (summer is usually pretty busy for us...)
So you see, it's so hard to just make up my mind if I like summer. I def don't like winter, because MO offers HORRIBLE winters. And spring only lasts for like, 3 days, maybe.  I'm really excited to start playing sports, yet not looking forward to being hot, lol!!!

Okay, here's the deal. If you want to see a video (description below⬇⬇) then go to YouTube, type Jenny Trask. It will be a picture of a  lady  (my mom) sitting on a white horse. Click her channel and the top video will be the one of Micah! I also just uploaded a (awful) video of me playing violin...*cringes* ...you can watch that too if you want.  I might be able to get a link of them if you'd like that better, when I'm on the laptop, cause I'm using a phone right now. Sorry for any inconvenience, a video wouldn't upload on my blog, so that's what I had do! I hope that everything is working correctly! :)
[Description of the video below] ⬇

So this video was taken when Micah was, 3 or 4 months old, and had just learned how to laugh! Is he not the cutest thing ever??? And yup, that is me tickling him!!! 😆😍💙 Which, can you even believe that he is almost 6 months old...??????????? *blinks* THAT WAS SO FAST. He now takes a bottle almost all the time, and has so many fat rolls I couldn't even count them, and he is starting to eat baby food. wahhhttt?  Yeah, that's just crazy.

oh and btw, his 6 months pics should be coming by the end of April!!!!

first snapping turtle of the season! :l

This pic cracks me up!!!

    Your violin-playing is beautiful!! I know I couldn't even play half as well. Two of my younger siblings (annika, 11; joseph, 8) play the violin. Great job!!

    1. I thought so too, isn't so adorbs?
      Wow...thank you sooo much!!! What books does Annika play out of? Could you give me a guess at what level he is? :) I absolutely lovvee hearing about other violinists!!
      Thanks! <333 =ikr!!

    2. Annika and Joseph both do Suzuki violin. I think Annika is in book 2 and has been playing for 2-ish years, and Joseph in book 1 and been playing for 1 year. :) I totally get you! I play the piano and it's so fun to hear about someone else's experiences with the same instrument. :D

    A. SNAPPING. TURTLE. WHERE?? I've actually never seen one before- was it wild??! ( I think I'd be terrified- do they live up to their name...??
    I'll have to check out the YouTube channel just as soon as I can- is your last name Trask? ( Just wondering, lol =P)
    Hope your feeling better!! ;)

    1. OMW REALLLLYYYYYYY!????!!!!!! Did you watch the violin video? It took all of my guts to post that...cause it really isn't very good. xl I can play so perfect in my room, but playing in front of ANYONE just really, idk, messes me up, which i really want to get better at because it frustrates me so much!
      Thank you! Ashley has a blog, http://acountrywildflower.blogspot.com/, she'd appreciate it if you followed her! She doesn't do much on there, but tries to!
      other than that-no. This youtube thing is very new, that was my first time uploading vids to youtube, and it took a day and a half...so if a two minute vid took that long, I'm expecting my vlog to take like-3 days! :l But I'm gonna try to do it real soon!
      man I need to do a simple little update post, i feel like i'm trying to say everything in this comment..sorry! :o

    2. YES I DID!!!!!!!!!!!! AND I LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You play better then I could any day! You have an AMAZING talent- seriously. And I;m not saying this just because we're BBF. It's because IT'S. SO. TRUE. You could literally play better then me any day. =P SERIOUSLY. Hey, you looked great in the video! You didn't look nervous or anything, GO YOU!! <3 I. KNOW. It feels like everyone is watching you, and then you freak out, because you're like ' what if I mess up in front of them'!!!!! AHHH! At least that's just me..... heheh......=P
      Your welcome! Ooh, ok! I'll have to check it out, I bet it's awesome. ;)
      Why I wonder? Maybe there was a glitch? Cuz, I remember one time we uploaded a twenty ( give or take the time) minute vid to ours, and it took a morning..... //
      OOOOOHHH, REEEEAAALLLYYY!!!!!???????? I LITERALLY CANNOT WAAAIIIITTT!!!!!!!!!!!! *is grinning so big*
      That's totally fine, I don't mind. ;) <33333333,
