Visit to Daddy's Station



A visit to Dad's station with  Connor's Boy Scout Troop to learn about fire fighting and EMS work. Because Dad was actually on shift, I ended up taking Connor and Xander had to tag along (he was unimpressed, he's seen Daddy's station a lot).

Day with Friends

Today both twins were out with their CLS workers, so I offered to take Connor out with a few of his friends - Chick-fil-a and Kids Place ...

Soccer Sundays

For the first time since the boys started TOPSoccer, only one is participating. We gave it several seasons, but Sawyer just really didn't seem to enjoy it. Whoever was helping him ended up with lots of pinches, hits and kicks throughout each and every practice. He was angry more often than not. And while the skill level was there on most things, he just didn't seem to enjoy it. And that makes us a little sad. It's a great program, with great coaches and amazing volunteers who show up every single practice to help.

So Xander is doing soccer solo this season. We're sitting in the stands with Sawyer while Xander gets teamed with a volunteer buddy and participates on his own. It's different, and depending on how well the volunteers know him, is sometimes better than others.

On the very first practice, Xander impressed his coaches with his improved footwork. He could dribble the ball between the cones with ease, something that was a little slower and more difficult last year. He still makes great shots on goal. And he can run hard and fast when he wants to run.

Spring Break at the Lake

While Connor was away, the boys and I made our way down to the lake for a few days to visit Grandma and Grandpa. Always a fun trip ...

Hard Life Club

We often joke that Connor has a really hard life ... as in, a really charmed life. So his hard life continued over Spring Break this year. Grammy invited Connor along for a trip to Disney. It started with an amazing airplane ride (something he's always wanted to do, but hadn't done yet). And then they checked into their hotel at Disney. And then they started exploring the Magic Kingdom, the water parks, and Disney Town. Lots of fun rides, water rides, legos, good food and exploring in just a few days.

Have I mentioned it's a hard life?

Grammy invited Connor to spend Spring Break at Disney World with her this year. Have we mentioned it's a hard life for him?
