Beautiful Day


It's another sunny March day here in beautiful Northern California. My thermometer says it is 85 outside right now and Drew is out in the backyard kicking his soccer ball into the goal. Ava is supposed to be taking a nap, but I can still hear her talking in there. Sadly, she only sleeps about every other day now, but she still goes and lays in her bed. It's only a matter of time before she says goodbye to napping completely. I am supposed to be cleaning the house to get it ready for life group tonight, but I'm tired. Maybe after a little rest, I'll have the energy to go straighten up.

This morning I brought the kids with me to the gym and ran for the first time since the race. I did 5 miles and it felt fine. After my last half marathon it was at least a couple of weeks before I ran again, so I'm hoping to just get right back on the horse this time and continue my training. After my run, the kids and I went out to the pool at the gym. They had fun splashing around and Drew kept himself busy chatting up every lady on her way to aqua aerobics!

After lunch I had to go register Drew for kindergarten at his new school. He got into our first choice elementary school (yay!) and I had to submit all the paperwork today. His kindergarten assessment is May 19th and the first day of school is August 24th. I have a feeling it's going to go by really quickly. Anyone who's been through the Kinder assessment, email me and tell me what we need to study for!

The only other thing we've got going on is T-ball and it's taking up a lot of our time! We got the uniforms yesterday and I can't wait to see Drew all dressed up for a game. Opening Day is this Saturday and he has his first game that day as well. Dan has been asked to be assistant coach and he agreed. Isn't that cute?! When we first found out we were having a boy Dan shared with me that he was looking forward to coaching his teams, then five years flew by and now it's happening.

I just love my family!

Yesterday was Tommy's opening day of T-Ball and I was ALL prepared for how cute Tommy was going to be. Truth be told it was Tony that was the cutest. Between snapping pictures with his cell phone to send to all his buddies, scoping out the best place for a picture for the float parade, and then giving me specific instructions on where to get the best video while he snapped a ton of pictures, it was priceless. Tommy looked super cute in his uniform and standing around on the field twittling his thumbs until the ball just about whacked him it was Tony that stole the show for me!! Yay great daddies like Dan and Tony!!
