Quick Trip

I had a very quick trip home last weekend. I  flew in Friday and left Sunday but I got to spend all day Saturday with my sister and see my nephew's high school football game and have lunch with my favorite aunt and my grandma.  I needed that! 


Culinary Arts

Alex's computer programming course was canceled at the last minute so he opted to take Culinary Arts.  This morning he chastised me for slicing a lime the wrong way and I told him to have at it.  Tom the early riser got a treat!



For David!
*Oops this is David catching.  He did get a hit that game according to my scouts. 



Here's Alex and his best friend finally on the same team after 7 years. Yesterday Alex pitched and Sam caught. 
Yesterday ended in a tie. Today they won!

David starts fall baseball soon too and Tom will be playing soccer. I have a half marathon next weekend and Allan has been running more regularly as well. 


Six Years' Growth

First Day

Alex is in tenth grade returning to the high school.  David is in fifth which is now at the same elementary school and Tom is in third grade. I think David would have preferred going to the intermediate school like Alex did but it's nice having two at the same school.  


Banana Nut Bread

My mom would be so proud of me!



We went a little more dramatic this time.  


Winner, Winner

Alex and I ran a race on Saturday and he ended up taking first for his age group!


I Can Row a Boat, Canoe?

We rented a double kayak, a single kayak and a canoe and paddled down the Farmington river today. It was fun! We played musical boats so we all got a chance to try both. Next time we all vote kayak.  


Six Feet

Alex is officially six feet tall!


David and Tom wanted to have a lemonade stand. I suggested they offer free water and sell Gatorade and granola bars on the rails to trail. They made $10 each! 



Digger passed puppy kindergarten! Then he tried to eat his certificate.
