Last Day of School!

We've made it to the end of first grade!

Had a great time carpooling with our friends this year! Right after we got back in the car, the song "One Thing" came on the radio. I had been meaning to make a request for the kids to hear on the way to school and never got around to it, plus I didn't have a clue what song to pick since the three have very different likes. I couldn't have planned it better as we backed out of the driveway with all three of them singing this song!

And we will miss Mrs. Beer!

Our Sporty Little Family

This week, Jillian moved up to a preschool class in gymnastics. The only major difference is that I am no longer down there with her. She's doing great and loves coach Emily!

I got my multi-sport season started with the BRC's Dash and Splash. It was just a 2-mile run and a 1/4 mile swim and there were a lot of teens in it doing it as a relay, but I came in first in my age group. OK, so there were only two of us in my group, but still!

We took in a Redbirds game with our friends, the Kearbey's. Funny story...Ryan and Taylor were in a playgroup togeher when they were 1-3. When I went back to work we lost touch. But now, they are on the same baseball team and we have reconnected! Having a lot of fun with them!

And Ryan wrapped up his basketball season this weekend:

They finally won a game and we were all so excited!

So coach took them out for ice cream!

Opening Day!

Though we are not yet done with basketball, baseball got under way today in Arlington!

Ryan is on the Yankees this year (no, we did not chose the team name, but we are so happy to have him on a team with friends he knows and some great coaches!!).

They were one of the teams selected to play an exhibition game:

And here are the words  never thought I'd say: Go Yankees!

A Day Off with Mommy

Jillian's sitter was off today, so I tok the day off too, and we spent it together! FIrst up was a bike ride around Shelby Farms. We did almost 10 miles together!

Then some time at the Woodland Discovery playground:

Next up was shopping for some new sneakers:

And finally lunch at Red Robin:

 I may have tired her out a bit:
