Reid took the pedals off of Libby's smaller bike to prep her for riding a 2-wheeler. He also had a clever idea while on the walk to pull her like a dog...
One of Sally's end of the year celebrations is a 1-4th grade kickball tournament. She was a little excited and a little nervous. I was proud of her that she was willing to kick and run the bases by herself. They have an option to pair up with their 4th grade buddy.
The inevitable happened...she got hit the face with the ball. It wasn't like you're picturing, but enough for the boy to feel bad, everyone to react and to surprise Sally a bit. We waved off the offer to go to the nurse for ice and she got back out there and finished the games.
I was able to come back in the afternoon to volunteer while BP worked for home (it was nap time for the littles). I got to be the 3rd base coach during Sally's last game, I coached her all the way to home to get the winning run for her team. She was so proud! She'll be ready to rock it again next year!
moment before getting hit in the face...3rd base can be a little tricky to find
Last day of first grade!
It was a perfect day in the enchanted forest!
Prepping for Sally's arrival
Steps away from summer!
First day of summer was a success. All 3 little ladies joined me on a trip to Costco. Thankfully we made it in and out between heavy downpours! Phew!
The Bigs played a whole lot of school.
We did a little hair stylin'
and some click click shoes
Today I snuck out in the morning to go cheer on Kari and Lyndsay as they tackled Lola's 10 mile! They rocked it....holy hills.....eek!
The Harbert family came to visit and we had lot of fun watching the girls play!
My new favorite quote from Blessed Teresa of Calcutta:
"Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier.
Be the living expression of God's kindness:
kindness in your face,
kindness in your eyes,
kindness in your smile."
I stumbled upon it while reading one of the reflections on Blessed is She...you can sign up for a daily email with the days Mass readings as well as a little reflection. It's a great way to start your day. They also have an Instagram account that I enjoy.
Happy Day to you and you and you.
