Junior Olympics!

Griffin took a Junior Olympics class this summer and it ended with a track meet last saturday. He is very interested in track. He is consistently running in at 2nd or 3rd place for the whole 3rd grade at his school and wants to join the Junior Olympian team this summer which is a team that prepares kids for high school track. Here are a few pics of his track meet.

Mother's Day Tea at Montessori

We had our 10th Annual Mother's Day Tea Party at Montessori the Friday before Mother's Day. It was very nice. My kids didn't sing as usual (they get shy or scared) but they ate a lot.

First Trip to the Lake Summer 2008

We had our first trip to Pine Flat last Saturday. It was pretty successful eventhough we worried what the babies would do. For the last 2 summers, gillian just slept most of the time but Caleb drove us crazy begging to jump in constantly and if we didn't hold him down he would climb up and over the back of the boat and dive in before the engine even turned off. This year was different. Caleb was afraid of the boat, he kept saying, "I want to go home". He didn't get in the water and was pretty mellow. gillian got a fever right when we got to the lake so I gave her some meds (because i'm mother of the year...haha.) and she slept most of the time we were there. With all that said, our first trip out was pretty good. Maybe the babies won't be as wild as we thought they would be this year??????
