This morning went like this…. 7:30AM family trip to Dunkin for breakfast; 8AM register for Fun Run; 8:30AM Kent, Henry, and Mark run 1-mile Fun Run; 9AM Kent’s swimming lesson; 9:30AM Henry’s swimming lesson; 11AM Kent’s soccer game; 12PM Pleasantville Day.
It’s only 4:30 in the afternoon and I am exhausted! But happy. I love days like this!
The peonies are blooming at Rockefeller Preserve!
The big boys were arguing the whole time we were there (they both wanted to be in pictures alone while at the same time didn’t want to allow their brother to be in any pictures alone, soo…. yeaaa….).
Despite the fighting, the flowers were lovely. Good enough to eat, right Calvin?
It rained for two days straight so the bright sun today is literally blinding us. But the boys are happy, the flowers are happy, and our little tree is (still) happy!
Henry’s dream finally came true today – he had his first session of hippity hop!
He came out of class exclaiming, I LOVED IT.
Today’s session was just a trial and the classes don’t officially begin until September but Henry is ready!
Kent just came and asked me if we should come up with a lockdown procedure for when we are home at our house. They had a practice drill at school today and ever the sensitive boy, he had a lot of questions and concerns about it. When I was in elementary school we had earthquake drills and fire drills, never lockdown drills. As a parent it is terrifying to think about and I’m so sad that it worries Kent. Look at him; at 5 1/2 years old he’s too innocent to be afraid of these things. ☹️
I am at a point in my life where most of my drawings are donations! I donate a personalized drawing to the preschool silent auction and the elementary school silent auctions and now I’m submitting one to be raffled off at the upcoming elementary school bake sale. Haha, it would be nice to someday make money for myself off of the drawings (each one is a lot of work!) but I am happy to be able to support the boys’ schools 🙂
My most recent family drawing for friends of ours who were high bidders at the elementary school fundraiser 🙂
